Trending: Long Cardigans - Yay or Nay?!

After seeing the floor-sweeping cardigan look all over blogs and in magazines for Spring 2014, I wanted to write a little bit about my take on the long style trend.

First off, I’d like to say how obsessed I am with cardigans, generally speaking. I wear them as often as possible. I’m a huge fan of layering and cardigans usually do it right because there’s no zippers (casual) and it’s not a tailored blazer (fancier).

Anyway – I didn’t end up buying the H&M long cardi because I didn’t totally like the way it fit or looked on me. Even with that being said, I was in the dressing room for at least 15 minutes with it on and really really really wanted to buy it. I’m still thinking about it.

I’m going with a YAY on long floor-grazing cardigans. It’s perfect over a tshirt and jeans with fun heels! I would be careful about length though!!! You still want to flatter your figure especially if you’re a shawwwwwtayyy.

You may be thinking – why hide your entire body under this long guy? Because this.

My style is typically that of a “man repeller” aka IDGAF how a guy would think I look and I dress for myself only. With that being said – do what you want people! If you want it, you got it. Wear it and don’t worry about what the boys think – if they’re cool, they won’t care about a long cardigan that you’re wearing! Check out the super chic looks below.

Essie Resort 2014: find me an oasis

Essie Resort 2014: find me an oasis

I’ve been searching for this color for what seems like forever. Essie, you never fail me! The Resort 2014 line has gorgeous hues – another favorite of mine is the beautiful coral peach “Resort Fling.”

Nail polish is one of my favorite beauty tools and I change mine every week no matter what. I try to keep a balance with my colors – basic, simple tones are perfect. Nudes & light pinks are a favorite of mine: Essie’s Spaghetti Strap, Essie’s Ballet Slippers. I also love a vampy purple or navy blue & of course, black.

On the opposite side of the spectrum, I go crazy for bright, crazy blues & purples and greens – anything that’s pretty absurd to wear on nails for longer than 2 days. Which creates the necessary need to change polish colors. This very light blue is a clear and comfortable way to wear a blue nail while still being able to pull off the “light” basic hue. Perfect for this time of year and upcoming Spring. Great for work or play!
