Styling A Monochromatic Long Cardi
This is not a sponsored or gifted post. All writing, photography and opinions are my own.
Hello, dear readers. Is it Wednesday already?! It seems like this week is flying by and I figured I had better get a post going! I realize that the blogs are starting to show Spring outfits already but, in my neck of the woods, it is still winter! In fact, many schools were on a two hour delay today due to icy roads. So, I'm sticking with winter wear and styling a long cardigan that I have really been enjoying wearing lately.
I think I cut out the tags on this cardi after I bought it, so I can't tell you the brand name. I can tell you, though, that all the clothing items in this post (not boots or jewelry) came from Walmart. This cardi is extra long, which I like, and has a sort of thickness to it that is really soft and warm. I enjoy the southwestern pattern and like how this outfit came together with a monochromatic color scheme.
You can really get a feel for the length here. I think this cardi will also work well in the Spring/Fall to wear with dresses when I feel the need for a bit of extra warmth. I like getting double and triple duty from my clothing and always think about that before I purchase something. As I write this post, I'm sitting on the couch wearing the cardi although I changed into jeans, a different top and running shoes. That's more comfy for lounging around the house and I'm not planning on going out today.
This peach/tan color clutch matches well with the outfit and I really enjoy the long tassel on the clutch. If I want to I can detach the tassel from the clutch and use it either on another purse or on a long necklace. Versatility ladies!
You saw the tan pants and top on another post I did here. Check out the link if you missed that post. A word about the boots. I bought these well over a year ago and, because I wear my Skecher ankle booties so much, these Franco Sarto's haven't gotten much wear. I added some cushioning today that really made a difference for me with comfort and warmth. Have you heard of the "Little Hotties" insoles? They are a thermal insole and I was amazed at how comfy they felt and how warm my feet felt without socks! I picked mine up at Walmart but I have also seen them on sale at other stores also. Just like other insoles, they have a guide to cut them to your correct shoe size. I really think I will wear these boots more now that I have these insoles!
I actually bought two long cardigans at Walmart and the other one is solid black. I have been wearing both on repeat. These longs cardis are not only warm but are quite slimming which is a bonus.
Have you tried the longer cardigans? What do you think of them? Hope you will leave me a comment and let me know.
And, speaking of comments. You may or may not know that Google is doing away with Google+ in April 2019. I just learned about that a short while ago. My blog was attached to Google+, but I went ahead and disconnected from Google+ since it's going to happen anyway. I hope this has not caused issues for anyone trying to leave a comment. Please let me know if you are having issues. The other side effect of Google+ going away is that any comments left on Google+ will also disappear. Please know that this is beyond my control. This is Google's decision to do away with Google+. Again, let me know via email if you are having issues with commenting. You can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Just a quick heads-up that another Match Made in Seven theme will be posted on February 28th! I think you will really enjoy this month's theme.
I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day, dear readers. Thank you for spending part of your day with me!
Until Next Time,
