a classic winter staple that belongs in every closet is a cozy cardigan. it’s the perfect layering piece to add warmth on a cold winter day. a cozy cardigan comes in a variety of designs; plain or patterned, wool or cashmere, long or short, open-face or buttons, the options are endless. cozy cardigans look terrific with athleisure, jeans or popped over your pajamas when it’s time to curl up on the couch with a hot cup of tea.
today’s ootd centers around a cozy cardigan (similar here and here) i picked up last year from J.Crew for a trip to San Francisco (read the blog post). it’s popped over a cashmere crewneck with subtle rib neck texture from Everlane. i’m sporting a new pair of blue jeans from Talbots that skims my frame rather than hugs. lately, it seems as if all the skinny jeans have turned into jeggings with a snug fit. some days, i just want to wear a plain old fashioned pair of jeans just like the old days. this pair of girlfriend jeans with a hint of spandex comes pretty close. add a pair of penny loafers from J.Crew and this casual outfit has old school charm written all over it.
happy thursday, gang! the week is almost complete. don’t forget to tune into fridays with oscar ‘cuz we’re whipping up a tasty dish.
