building the wardrobe-

I'm slowly working on the fall wardrobe. Adding a few pieces that I know I will wear daily. I am all about a few great pieces I love. Not spending a fortune on a bunch of trendy things I never touch. Just me. Anyway. To work into my cardigan and flats attire, I ordered two of these. Great basic, nice colors.
And against my better judgement, I ordered this alpaca long cardigan in the darker brown, shown here-


even though it looks terrible ( below )-

is it just me, or does it look awful?! Good heavens, press it before you shoot it! I think without 2 layers underneath, it will be cute. Fingers crossed-

I have to have the wrap up on a snowy day, throw on with Uggs ( yes, I wear them. I know, half the world hates them.. live in Canada, you won't have a choice ;) sweater. Do you have a go to day off sweater?

Too funny! Or at least steam it!
That being said, you will look gorgeous in this lovely cardigan, and you're making me want to order one for myself as well. Our winters in NY can't be all that different!

I was looking at the same cardigan on JCrew - I love it and agree - in Canada we need to bundle up! :)

I feel the colour is washing the model out, she just looks frumpy! But I like the cardi - it looks like the perfect go-to sweater!

Don't worry I wear uggs too! I hated them for the longest time but then once I slipped on a pair of those warm guys on a cold day, I was sold. They're like slippers!! Hello, this is Alberta, warm feet is a must.

I think the sweater looks really cute! I'm interested to see if you like it, our Utah winters get really bad too!

I just did a little shopping today. An oversized hangy cardigan made the cut. thought it would be cute with all the leggings I wear.

You're too funny! But you're right, there's a fold crease. Like it just came out of the plastic bag crease. But it does look comfy and cute :)

I like the cardigan, it looks nice and cozy. I hear ya on the Uggs... don't knock them until you've had to spend all winter with many days of snow and sub-zero weather!
