Monday Mingle: Favorite Trend: Fall Cardigans

Fall means bundling up, but you don’t have to look like an eskimo. You can do it chic-style. Long cardigans are a trend. But how do you style them without looking like you are in a robe? The key is the belt!

 

J.Jill Jacquard Plaid Sweater started the whole outfit. I wanted to wear it on the first crisp day of fall and I wanted to not look like an oompa loompa. I kept everything else trim. A fitted tee and slim leggings (this leather pair is from last year’s Cabi collection).

What else is new? The bag. I’m obsessed with this Moleskine tote. It’s fabulous and from the makers of the classic Moleskine notebook. It’s the bag that PERFECTLY fits my 11″ mac air and all my other things. Like all the Moleskine products, this is exquisitely detailed. Derived from the design of the classic Moleskine notebook, it’s sleek and slim. The bag slips on my shoulder perfectly and has three pockets inside and two outside. Ideal for a commute across town or to school drop off, this bag is a gem.

Since it is solid black, I added a bit of color with a CAbi scarf. Try a smaller one, I think the scarf SLIGHTLY overpowered the bag. Oh well, I tried.

And finally a note about the Euro-sneaks. This Longchamp pair is a fave, but you can get them from any maker–just look for a black pair with cool trim.
