kimono cardigan

While these photos don't do it justice, this outfit was a lot better in real-life. After all, what's not to love about a bright pink kimono cardigan? (Sadly, it's sold out at the moment, but you can request to have an email be sent to you once it's available. And I found a very similar version in a lavender pink or khaki.) I forgot to grab my DSLR, so my sweet husband took a few pics on my camera phone, and while they're okay, it's just not the same.

I think a thicker stripe shirt would have worked a little bit better, the thinner stripe isn't translating well in photos. Also, I tried knotting my shirt - and I don't know if it's because it's reminding me of some elementary school 80s fashion - but I'm not 100% sure it's working for me. I'm actually rocking this cardigan again today - for the third Friday in a row - with white jeans and an unknotted deep pink and white stripe tee and I like it much more.

I realize I've been really been into pink lately - all shades from blush to bubble gum - so hopefully you guys aren't sick of seeing it on repeat. :) Maybe I need to rename this blog "Pink and Polka Dots." Ha!

P.S. Did you see yesterday's post? I'm attending a gala next week and need your help deciding what outfit I should wear. Poll ends Sunday evening!

  2. This is a great transition look for spring, Erin! I like the knotted tee and need to try this for a fun variation. Those leopard shoes are just sooo fab. Thanks for linking up and enjoy your week!

    1. Thanks Jennie! I think I just need to get used to knotting shirts - it's kind of like wearing sandals again after a long winter of boots, they look funny the first few wears until you get used to them again. :)

  3. Ooh such a great cardigan! The color is fab on you. And I actually love the knotted tee - noticed it right away as a fun twist (pun intended, ha) on a cardigan + tee combo.

    1. Thanks! I think a lot of my hesitation had to do with the fact that I used to knot my tees as a kid. :) I love the trend where shirts already look tucked/knotted...I might have to try one out in the near future.
