I love cardigans, yes I do! I love cardigans, how about you?
I’m sitting down to write this post at 7pm on a Sunday night. My apple-scented candle is burning, there’s soft jazz music playing from my Google Home, and I’m feeling oh-so ready for autumn to arrive. Richmond got a delightful taste of the season-to-come in the past week. The temperatures were in the high 70’s, and I soaked it in as much as possible by spending time outdoors. I thrive in cooler weather, and I’ve mentioned time and again how excited I am for fall.
Of course, that means I’m anxiously anticipating the fall fashion as well. I’ve been preparing my closet with chunky knits, oversized cardigans, and leather jackets galore. You’d think it was already frigid outside with the way my wardrobe is overflowing with these warm and fuzzy items. I’m getting a head-start on my autumn and winter shopping, since I’ll be just a tiny bit preoccupied with my wedding in the middle of November (no Black Friday shopping for me)!

Cardigans have always been my #1 transitional item, since they’re worn easily over summer clothing and again over heavier fall and winter pieces. I chose to layer this chunky boyfriend cardigan from Chicwish over a summery peplum camisole I purchased earlier this summer. The mustard tone of my top is perfect to wear with warmer autumn items, and add a comfy pair of cognac booties and skinny jeans and you’re good to go! I really appreciate a casual outfit such as this, because most of my days consist of running errands, coffee shop-hopping, and maybe a meeting thrown in here and there. I need something comfortable and versatile – not too dressed up or dressed down.
The beauty of an oversized cardigan such as this, is that you can just as easily throw it on over a cute dress with a belt, and you’ve created a relaxed date night (or often, in my case, wine night with my best gals) outfit that keeps you comfy as can be! Just ten years ago, I refused to purchase long-sleeve clothing during the cooler months. Instead, I begged my mom to help me pick out cardigans to wear over tank tops and t-shirts instead. That way, if I got too warm at any point, I could just shrug the outerwear and stay cool as a cucumber. Now I see the perks to long-sleeves as well, and they’re just as wonderful beneath snuggly cardis!
