My husband and I went to a 20s-themed party this weekend (photos on my Insta), and we were laughing on the way there about how men’s fashion over time really hasn’t changed that much. I ordered him a bow tie and suspender set on Amazon and a hat. That was it. He wore a normal button down and pants and pretty much fit the era. Women’s fashion, on the other hand, changes seasonally, annually, by the decade–it’s exhausting!
It’s funny that I just typed that because I love fashion, and I love new. But I’m all about simplifying these days. When you have too many options, nothing is good enough. And the more I stock up on basics, the more I feel like I have plenty of classic, stylish options to choose from.
Is my closet boring? No. I keep things fresh with cute accessories and fantastic layering pieces, like this Barefoot Dreams cardigan I picked up at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year. It might just possibly be the perfect fall cardigan.
Every year one of these insanely-plush fall cardigans goes on sale and it always sells out! This year I was sure to shop early and add it to my shopping cart immediately. I love the ombré look and it comes in fade-to-chocolate (like mine) and fade-to-black, too.
This cute fall cardigan is the softest thing in life. My son loves to cuddle with it, I love to cuddle with it. And it’s an easy layer to just about any outfit. When I’m working from home, I can just throw on jeans, a top and a cute cardigan like this one. These days, I’m all about cardigan outfits.
And since it’s fall in AZ, this is really just about all I need to stay warm and stylish.
I like to have a variety of cardigans in my closet: long ones, short ones, plush ones, thin ones. Drapey ones, solid-color ones, print ones and long duster vests, too. Need an easy outfit formula? Just add a third piece.
