How to Style A Mint Green Cardigan for Fall and Winter

Given that temperatures are dropping in the western hemisphere and winter is starting to creep up, I want to share how to style a mint green cardigan for fall and winter. Plus, Norfolk just had the Grand Illumination Parade, trust me it’s a really big and bright deal, so that means Christmas is right around the corner! Mint green is traditionally more of a spring and summer color. I remember back in 2012, pining for all things mint, whether it was a good blouse or pair of mint gingham pants (holy crap, what a throwback to an embarrassing, younger version of me!). Mint is still a great color to wear but I can understand the challenges of styling it for fall and winter.

The Chunky Oversized Sweater You Need

One thing I really love about fall and winter is being able to wear really cozy things. This cream chunky oversized sweater feels like I’m wearing a hug. I know I’ll be snuggling up in it all season long. Plus, it’s 35 percent off today with code “25HOURS”  so I highly recommend you snap this up! This beautiful piece is almost like a sweater cardigan jacket hybrid. I love the oversized fit but it isn’t too overwhelming for those who are petite. Since this chunky oversized sweater doesn’t come in petite sizing, making sure it’s not too big is important. I’m wearing size XXS and love the fit. Wearing this makes me feel like I’m wearing a hug. This ultra soft fuzzy cardigan jacket has a very nice weight to it, which adds to the luxurious feeling and warmth. Also, it zips completely shut, which will block out the cold.

Essentials For Fall :: Cardigan & Boots

As Labor Day arrives and the beginning of fall starts to show just a little bit, I love gathering essentials for fall. You just never know with the weather, so it’s always nice to be prepared for a crisp morning or cool evening. I’ve mentioned this previously but I love to get fall pieces during the Nordstrom Sale. My essentials for fall include a cozy cardigan with a chunky knit and a good pair of boots. The beautiful braid and knit detailing on this cardigan drew me in the moment I saw it. I’m a sucker for classic cream but it also comes in charcoal, dark hunter green, navy blue and a gorgeous rose color. This cardigan is oversized so I got size XS. It’s perfect for throwing over a dress like I am here. It’ll be so cute with jeans, a simple tee or blouse underneath and heels, too.

Fall Florals :: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Outfit

Happy Monday Y’all! This weekend was a busy one for me. Lots of blog work with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access going on, seeing friends and catching up on much-needed sleep! Shoutout to my blogger babe Maria Luke of Millenial Fashionista and her husband Parker, okay mainly Paker, for taking these photos of me!  We were blessed with slightly cooler weather, so shooting these fall looks weren’t as bad!

I know so many items are already sold out in the sale. Therefore, in this fall florals look, I’m focusing on items all fully in stock with multiple sizes available. This floral blouse has the prettiest ruffle sleeve details. I love this blouse because it’s perfect for work and wearing casually too. It has short sleeves, so it’s something you can definitely wear now. I love the darker tones, which gives it the fall florals look. When temperatures get chilly, throw on this cardigan for extra warmth. I love this coral color is a more affordable alternative to the ever-popular merino wool cardigan the past two years of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. While the cardigan I’m wearing above is 100 percent cotton, that’s reflective in the $32 price point. However, to make up for it, it’s available in six colors! Definitely snap this one up for summer nights or fall.

Hearts of Pom :: Knit Your Love Cardigan

Happy Monday Y’all! I’m going to be honest, I did not watch the Super Bowl, but I do love the Eagles win because they’re underdogs! A good underdog story is always appealing to me. Perhaps it’s because almost every time I competed I was the underdog.

I’m sad Punxsutawney Phil predicts another six weeks of winter! I don’t mind winter, but I would like for temperatures to be warmer than the 30s! Plus, I’ll be getting plenty of that in PyeongChang and Gangneung when Johnny and I are there for the 2018 Winter Olympics! That’s where this wine knit your love cardigan comes in handy. The pom poms are in a heart shape, so this is perfect leading up to Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’s 100 percent acrylic, which is a nice cozy and warm fabric. This is a great layering piece, whether it’s over a tank, like I am here, or with a thinner sweater. Keep in mind, this piece is hand knit, so there are some gaps where wind can cut through. This isn’t the warmest cardigan, but it’ll do for mild winter temps.
