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.

My Favorite Oversized Tunic Sweater & Why I have Four!

I have a soft spot for sweaters. Next to dresses, they are my favorite clothing item. There’s something about how soft, thick and cozy there are that makes me swoon. I love when I get to pull out my sweaters from winter boxes and have them all around me as I hang them up for the season. A silhouette I’m starting to love is the oversized tunic sweater. I first got this style last year in two colors, ivory and red. This year, I am adding this mulberry color and a dusty blue to my wardrobe. This sweater comes in plenty of gorgeous shades so you’re sure to find the perfect one.

The Perfect Wool Coat for Petite Women

When cold-weather season rolls around, I love bringing out my coat collection. Some of my favorite coats are currently 30 percent off with code ‘FRIENDS’ so if you’re looking to cozy up, now is the time! This gray wool coat for petite women is a silhouette I’m starting to really love. It’s versatile enough to where you can wear it casually or dress it up. My first lodge coat is from last winter and throughout the season, I just loved how it fit. Since I got the boucle wool version, I knew I wanted something that’s less of a statement. Before it gets too cold where you are, I want to share three reasons you need this winter coat. Plus, it’s on sale!

Styling a Statement Coat :: Rich Shades of Red

A statement coat is a must for the fall and winter. It’s the item you can throw over any outfit, walk outside into the crisp air and feel confident. My coat collection is one of my favorites and something I have been building for almost 10 years. This plaid statement coat is a heavy-duty piece with a classic silhouette. The woven fabric is a beautiful mix of rich reds with pinks and a little white to keep everything in balance. The notch lapels give that old-school look but the solo button closure makes this statement coat modern. I’m wearing size XXS in this jacket, which does have an oversized fit. This is handy for when you’re wearing thick sweaters or multiple layers. However, if you’re petite, you may need more alterations. The sleeves are a little long on me but I prefer longer sleeves to keep my wrists warm.

Romantic Lace Off-the-Shoulder Romper for Weddings

When spring hits, I love love the off-the-shoulder trend. I think it’s extremely feminine, flirty and perfect for getting or showing off a nice tan. That’s why I think this blush lace off-the-shoulder romper is the wardrobe staple of the season. One of my favorite aspects on this romper is the scalloped hem. This adds a touch of whimsy to an already romantic piece. Plus, with how beautiful and delicate the lace is, this just adds an extra factor. As someone with a smaller chest, I love when there are ruffles over the bust because this adds the illusion of more. The elastic on this lace off-the-shoulder romper is snug but isn’t overly restrictive, which is great. It’s always awful when you feel like you can’t move in your clothes.
