Eeek! Closet-diving success!

Ever since I read about the Fall trend of layering cardis, I knew I wanted to try it. This month's Lucky mag totally inspired me. Here are the rules (*snorts* heh... rules...): 1. Pair a longer length sleeve under a 3/4 sleeve. 2. Play with different colors, textures and patterns for spice. 3. Allow the bottom layer to be the foundation and play up the top layer with embellishments. Et voila! Magnifique! I scoured the internet today trying to find the perfect pairing but decided to dumpster closet dive instead. I'm totally excited about what I came up with. What do you think??

Jeans: AE Super Skinny jeans
Tee shirt: Old Navy
White cardi: Express
Black cardi: White House Black Market

...With lots of baubles! (necklaces: Express and ?)

The best part about this outfit, for me, is that these two cardis alone were inching towards my Salvation Army pile. I never wore either, because alone, they just didn't work with my style. But now I have a totally updated look with two previously-unworn items! Pretty proud... yep.


  1. Super cute!! I never would have thought to try that!

  2. Baubles always make any ensemble even better!
    Looks great!

  3. Love this look on you - great idea!

  4. Thanks, everyone! I'm excited about trying other mixes with the idea, too.
