Remember my indulgent shopping spree back in September ignited by the release of Missoni at Target? It must have been my lucky day because even though most of the Missoni clothing items had been thoroughly cleaned out by the time I arrived, I still managed to snag the last blue cardigan.
The same day, my friend Jill of Everything Just So was online fighting the cyber masses, scoring one of her own. We’ve been emailing for weeks about doing a dual post and featuring ourselves on our blogs wearing our cardis. With the warm weather we’ve been having here in northern California, a not-so-flattering photo shoot recently and a busier than normal last few weeks, I was holding both of us up.
Finally, while in San Francisco last week, I managed to get a few shots showing how I wear my cardigan…..
with the San Francisco Bay and the Golden Gate Bridge in the background (you may need to squint, but I swear, it’s there).
This sweater makes more of a statement from behind.
I wore it with a navy tee from H & M, white bootcut jeans from Banana Republic, a navy blue water pashmina, Vanelli blue suede wedges, lots of silver bangles and last year’s birthday present from Bill, a Louis Vuitton Beverly GM.
On our way home,
we stopped off at the The Pelican Inn at Muir Beach in Marin County. It’s a charming Tudor-style inn and restaurant.
The weather was perfectly warm and so inviting. I took off my shoes, shed the cardigan and walked the dogs in the cool grass.
Jill and I think this idea, one item worn by different people, is a great way to showcase key pieces in our closet that we bet you have in yours too. We like it so much, we’re doing it again next month. On December 1st we will be showing how we wear….
