You’ve got to own at least one maxi cardigan!

Dolan Gray Left Coast Open Maxi Cardigan from Anthropologie

Left coast dolan gray maxi cardigan anthropologie

I bought this Left Coast maxi cardigan last year from Anthropologie and it has become one of my favorite cardigans. It’s extremely comfortable with a lot of stretch. It’s truly a great piece. When I walk it floats so smoothly. I have to admit I feel pretty amazing when I put it on.

While getting dressed I started with the maxi cardigan. That led me to the tank, then the skirt, scarf, socks, shoes, and finally necklace. I basically played off of each item’s color. This look is about comfort and texture.

You can dress it up or dress it down. If I’m not heading out it becomes the perfect lounge cardigan for days of pure relaxation. It’s a must have cardigan in my book.

Mustard Cords!

 My perfect oxford contrast placket shirt was the starting point for my entire ensemble. I bought it from Gap about a month ago and it has become an essential piece in my closet. It’s simple and great for layering.

On this particular day I decided to pair my oxford shirt with my old mustard cords. I wanted to add color and texture. To complete my look I chose accessories that complemented each other- a textured scarf, a bronze necklace, a few bracelets, and animal print booties. These pieces played nicely with my outfit.

 

A canvas with classic reminders like, “Never Give Up,” “Be Yourself,” and “Everything Happens for a Reason,” served as my background. There’s something about this lonely canvas filled with words that sets the mood for this shoot and completes my look. I love it!

Confidence!

All black is such a sleek look but adding voluminous textures will explain gazing eyes!

Sharp Details!

 I love this design!  The origami like layering around the neckline makes a statement and demands attention.

(With a shirt this powerful keep your  jewelry to a minimum. A necklace is not needed but delicate earrings, bracelets, and rings are great choices.)

Mixing Textures!

MORE, more, & more textures!  Horizontal ripples on her skirt, an embossed crocodile leather bag and animal print espadrille wedges.

It’s expected to complete the look with pumps but the choice of espadrille wedges makes you question it’s purpose. What does it do for the overall look? Does it contradict the sleekness?

Overall I like it, it’s  interesting and she wears it well. Controversial outfits are always fun!
