What I Wore: Cold Afternoon and the Perfect Cardigan

I woke up on Wednesday thinking that I could make it through the day without a jacket. The sun was out, the weather app wasn't predicting anything too intense, so I thought I'd brave it and be fine. Well, I was wrong. I went out during lunch and froze. And then on the way home, I realized that if I was going to have to wait for the bus (which I did), that I needed something to keep me warm. So I hopped over to Banana Republic to see if I could find a sweater... and I did. And it's perfect!

I don't know about you, but I have a mental list going of different items I know I want to add to my wardrobe, that I'm always on the look-out for. A chunky knit cardigan has been one that I've been after for a really long time. Surprise, surprise when I found it when I wasn't even looking.

Typically I wouldn't buy something like this during the summer, but since it was cold and I know I'll get a lot of wear out of it, I decided it was worth the splurge ($100 isn't too bad for something I know I'll get a ton of use out of). I can see wearing this so many different ways, so keep your eyes peeled for this to make more appearances here on Girls&City. 

I started with the basics... very similar to this look and a bright lip (NARS Never Say Never is quickly becoming a favorite). Love how cozy this look is while still being professional enough for me to wear to work.

What are some things that you are constantly on the lookout for?

Till next time,
