Long Cardigans

For the past five years, Adrienne from The Rich Life in Wine Country and Jill from Everything Just So have been posting a monthly series called “How I Wear My.” Apparently, it started when they both bought the same long cardigan and decided to post about it on the same day. And then they invited others to join in the fun. So every month they feature dozens of women across their blogs and show how they wear a certain item. This month’s theme is “long cardigan.”

Here are the two photos I submitted. Both feature my grey, long cardigan that I’ve owned for about seven years. I have worn it a lot over the years - with leggings, with skinny jeans, with white wide legged pants, even over a dress. I also have other long cardigans that I enjoy wearing, but somehow I don’t blog about them a lot because I often don’t deem the outfits “blog worthy,” which is maybe a bit silly since I enjoy wearing them, and they feel very “me."

And here is my long(ish) black cardigan with a tunic and leggings.

And here is another photo of me wearing the grey cardigan with skinny jeans, a grey tee and one of my favorite necklaces.

A long cardigan is definitely part of my signature look.
 

Here are some great long cardigans that I like a lot.* The Eileen Fisher ones are a bit pricey, but I think they are true investment pieces that I could see myself owning for many, many years.

  3. Long cardigans look great on you! Sometimes they make me look even shorter than I am...so I they can't be too long.

    1. Thanks, Nancy! The photo with the kid is from a while ago. We actually went on a "beer walk" where you get to taste different types of beer in different shops and business in a neighborhood (Andy gets to drink beer, and I get to shop a little...). Not the kid's favorite thing to do, but we still had fun... :-)

  8. Andrea love how you styled your cardigan in so many ways. I agree a long black one is a must-have in the wardrobe. I have one I also wear a ton. Cute pic of you and the son! Hope you have a good long weekend! x Kim

  11. I can see why you wear them so often, Andrea, duster cardigans suit you very nicely :) I love them too but since I'm vertically challenged, lean towards a slightly shorter silhouette. Have a lovely weekend, friend.

    I'm talking about legacy on the blog currently. What it means to me. How I want the world to remember me. That and my weekly Project Sister Act Link-Up is currently live, and will be up until next Thursday, and I would so love for you to come over and join in xoxo

    1. Thanks, Sheela!

      I read your legacy post this morning and really liked it. As I said in my comment, I think it's so important to remember that everything we do, support, or don't do becomes part of our legacy...

  14. Andrea, I like the cardigans. They give a polished look and keep you warm in this transitional weather. I really like the first one with the assymetrical line.
