Patterned Sweater

- Outfits

patterned top

This open-face cardigan has been a great addition for this winter. The pattern is fun, but is easily paired with a lot in my closet, both for work and the weekend. I wore this outfit last Saturday, finally putting together a shorts + tights look even though it wasn’t the best choice for the weather (hence the indoor photos).

I hope you had a great weekend, and are having a good Monday! As good as Mondays get anyway!

    I have ALWAYS wanted to wear shorts with tights but it does’t look quite right on me since I have bigger legs. You however, look darling and this is probably one of my favorite looks of yours, ever!

    OMG, how cute are you?! I love the print and length of this sweater, and have always loved shorts + tights (although I agree they’re not always practical)! You look fabulous and styled the perfect amount of edge.
