Cardigan Where?

So my friend Cams over at life in mod has teamed up with Ain't No Mom Jeans for a new series called How We Wear It. The goal is to pick one wardrobe basic a month and show how to wear it, and to get other bloggers to participate via linky. This month's pick was the ladylike cardigan [correction: ladylike cardigan was March's basic. Oops!].

Great! My only problem is that I don't wear cardigans. It's not that I have anything against them, it's just that I don't feel like me in one. I thought I'd take the challenge anyway, so I rescued this old black [semi-cropped] cardigan from my "goodbye pile" (I don't know how it has stayed with me this long, I don't think I've worn it in 10 years. Seriously. Maybe it's not really cropped. Maybe it's from the juniors' department...). I was inspired by Cams to wear it as a shirt, which worked perfectly with these high waisted paints. Perfectly because there was no extra material to cause bulk when tucked in, but enough to, you know, stay tucked in. I threw on a vest and some platforms, et voila, Mary wearing a cardigan!







Outfit details: Pants: Vintage // Black cardigan: 6th grade??? // Vest: MICHAEL Michael Kors  // Shoes: Jessica Simpson // Watch: Citizen Eco Drive  (gift) // Pearl stud earrings (gift) 

How do you work a cardigan?

    1. Yes, I love the vest, though my husband teases me (he wants to know when the safari starts) : ) I'm just noticing it looks wrinkly in the pics! oops!
