staple

 




dress: My Beloved...from Soel Boutique; cardigan: me, shoes: 9 west, purse: Tory Burch, jewelry: Juicy, Nachelle, ring is vintage from my Grandma, nails: Dark Navy by ELF 


You know when you have an idea in your head for a while and it takes you forever before you finally have the time to create it?  That's what happened with this cardigan.  I have had that navy knit and those gold buttons (both from the fabric district) for months now, with the intention of creating a cardigan.  But I guess things like pregnancy, giving birth, and an attention demanding toddler sometimes force you into a sewing hiatus.

I purchased this dress a few weeks ago.  It was a little "yay you just birthed a human" gift from the hubs.  I knew I couldn't wear it until the cardigan was complete, so I morphed myself into a baby whisperer and got both boys to sleep at the same time and pumped this sucker out.  I love the feel of this knit.  It is a little thicker than a jersey and fantastic quality.  It has a little bit of a blazer look to it, which I love.  I'm excited to incorporate it into my daily wardrobe.  It's a staple piece if I ever saw one.

  11. gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! There's no way anyone would guess you just popped out a sweet little baby! You look AMAZING. And, that cardi is so cute -- I love it. I love that is resembles a blazer slightly but has the feminine quality and sweetness of a cardigan.

  14. You look incredibly stylish! What I like best is how you coupled your jewelry with a clutch and your lovely golden buttons. Your cardigan is great the same as you are wearing it. I would love to have a similar one in my wardrobe (poor my:))
