Basic Cable

Hi friends, happy Monday! With the weather cooling down here in Madison, it’s quite literally sweater weather, and who doesn’t love a good cable-knit? When I think of the classic fisherman’s sweater, my mind first jumps to being around five or six at my grandparents house. Whenever I was chilly, I would borrow one of several sweaters my “Ahma” had knitted for either my mom or my aunt when they were little. They were the perfect, cozy, cabled cardigans with pretty brass buttons. Though those are long gone, they are definitely the standard I look to when on the hunt for a new sweater. I personally believe everyone should own a great cable-knit, and this season, there’s so much to choose from. It’s anything but basic cable with punchy colors, or fringe, or colorblocking, cable-knit is cool y’all. You can even incorporate it into your look in the form of leggings or even a poncho, whatever floats your boat. If you live in the Great White North, like me, you’ll definitely be requiring a chunky knit to keep you warm all fall/winter, and cable-knit is the way to go. Check out some of my picks in the list below!

Hi! I hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine in Chicago, and I’ll be recapping that in tomorrow’s post. For now, unwind before bed with some retail therapy. Several of these things were inspired by what I couldn’t afford to buy while shopping around the past few days. Life is expensive y’all, and so is Italian leather. I’m wrapping up my evening with some tea, as it takes some time to recover from such a great weekend, so I’ll meet y’all back here tomorrow!

SandlesSplendid, $78 (Find them in the widget below to shop!)

Hi y’all! If you follow me on Instagram (which you should do here), you saw that I picked up these little beauties last week! I really stepped on of my comfort zone with these, as I’ve said before I’m more of a golden girl, but these sandals were an impulse buy I don’t regret! Silver goes with just as much as gold, and adds a modern appeal to your look. SIDENOTE: you can wear gold and silver together y’all. Life is just too short. Anyway, I rounded up some other silver sandals I’ve been eyeing, check them out (and these pictured) in the neat lil widget below!

Weekly Wishlist: Go Army

Click to Shop!

Hello! Happy Monday! Today’s Weekly Wishlist centers around the military/utilitarian trend we’re seeing right now. I love this trend because it is really classic and can blend in with so many different styles. Basic items you are bound to already have in your closet will play well with this look. Take those green Theory georgette pants and top them with a white button down and flats – you’re good to go!  Also, give the tan cargo dress a chance. I recently purchased it along with literally five of my coworkers, all different heights and body types, and it flatters everyone! It’s been on repeat for some time now and I won’t be stopping anytime soon. Hope ya’ll have a great day and that this little post provides some Monday entertainment!

Pastel Picks

I know pastels (like florals!) for spring aren’t exactly groundbreaking, but I’m really excited about them this go round. With all the neutral, blushy tones that are everywhere this season, pastels are just part of the natural progression. I like the ethereal, easy look that only the lightest tints of colors can bring. This is also true when it comes to cosmetics, so if you’re not quite ready to commit to a pastel wardrobe the Queen Mother (rest her soul) would approve of, try a new, pink-er blush or this lilac nail polish. This color trend is a great fit for everyone, as pastels compliment both dark and fair skin tones. Now we can all run around channeling Easter eggs all season long. I can’t wait to layer the sweater from yesterday’s post over this shirtdress with pale pink flats!
