How many of you grabbed a few items from the (now over ) Nordstrom Sale and are now wearing them on repeat and it’s getting embarrassing and you definitely need to swap it for something else while you give it a turn in the wash? That’s what this cardigan is to me now and I had to share this little OOTD after I realized everything is under $50!
Cardigans are like camis in that they are a basic closet essential but we don’t think to grab new ones very often, so chances are you need one. I can not recommend this BP. cardi enough. It’s just the right weight, super soft, not scratchy at all, comes in several shades (including a pumpkin spice color I’ve had my eye for the entirety of the sale), and it’s under $50. I think I’ve worn mine about 90% of the time since I’ve gotten it
My other favorite thing from this look are these Aldo slides giiirl!! I can’t stop wearing these. I was actually trying to be a good girl and not buy them but when they go with everything and are on sale I mean it’s impossible to say no right? They are really comfortable and I have no problem walking in them and I think they will easily transition into Fall looks.
Can I just take this moment to ask for your forgiveness now? I know I didn’t post at all last week and I feel so bad about that but dang this summer weather makes me a bit lazy sometimes. Does that ever happen to you? I either have a ton of energy and want to be outside all the time, or I want to nap and veg, there is no in between LoL Please tell me I’m not alone here.
Anyway, that’s why I was a bit MIA on the blog last week, I wish I had a better excuse than “the weather stole my focus and made me want to veg” but we are imperfect creatures. Speaking of, I thought I’d share a few quotes I read last week that may make you feel a bit better about life and how it reveals itself (using a gardening analogy, naturally).
“…a gardener does not actually grow plants. A gardener practices certain gardening skills that facilitate growth that is beyond the gardener’s direct control.”
“Let yourself learn to garden for the pure joy of it, without need for a certain timeline or result. Trust that if you can soften and surrender into that great force of life, your garden will bloom in the most beautiful ways, far beyond the comprehension of the mind.”
-Martin Laird, Into The Silent Land
Thanks for hanging out with me today,
Insider’s note: It was a bajillion degrees the day I took these and I was sweating like a pig wearing this cardigan, so if my face looks like I’m about to get heat stroke in any of these pics, that’s why
