Springy Saturday

Top: Forever 21  |  Cardigan: Target  |  Belt: H&M  |  Teal cuff: Forever 21  |  Wedges: Target

It was yet another springy San Diego Saturday and I was trying to avoid my typical weekend uniform, but I wasn't about to get all fancy just to go to church for worship band practice.  The breezy weekend air made me reach for lighter pieces--a lace top, boyfriend jeans, and nude wedges--and I topped it off with a mustard cardi.  If you're looking for easy, jeans, a top with some interesting details, and a colorful cardigan will always be your best friend.  Casual, but still put-together.  Just the way I like it.



And, the winner of the Daisy Rae giveaway is Nancy T!

  3. What a cute outfit! I live in cardigans and though I couldn't pull of this exact shade of yellow (I'm fair and blonde) I'd love to rock a paler yellow. I'm one of your newest followers!! Love the blog!

    I love this outfit. I have a lace top that I have worn like once. I never thought about belting with jeans! Love this look.

  9. I love this look.  Question: How do you decide whether to wear the belt on the INSIDE or the OUTSIDE of your cardigan?  Do you just try it both ways and see what looks best?

  10. I try both, but I start inside because I like to be able to take off my cardigan.  Also, if I'm probably going to take off my cardigan and the shirt doesn't look good by itself, I will belt inside for sure so that the shirt can stand on its own.  If it's colder and I know I'll leave the cardi on, I'll be more inclined to belt the cardi too.  For this one (http://www.puttingmetogether.com/2011/12/on-board.html) the shirt underneath simply looked funny with a belt--it was so unnecessary that it looked silly--but the cardigan still looked baggy without one, so I belted everything.
