Today's Everyday Fashion: Saved By The Cardigan


I recently scored this cardigan secondhand, and couldn't wait to wear it on our trip to Michigan! I packed it thinking I'd only wear it once - in the outfit above, which was perfect for a day-date with the hubs. But then I wound up wearing it every day after, too! (see photos below) The weather was quite chilly, 10-20 degrees cooler than our trip last year. Miraculously, it seemed to match everything I packed. That's what I love about a great, neutral cardigan like this though - it truly goes with everything!
