Happy New Year everyone! I know I’m a week late, but it’s been a busy couple of weeks. We were in Michigan over Christmas and then I went back to work on Tuesday. My month is only going to get busier because we are moving into a new house at the end of January. I’m so excited, but I have so much to do to prepare. I apologize in advance for the lack of a blog post this month.
As you can see, I’ve made a few changes to my blog for the new year. One of my new year goals was to make some changes to improve my blog this year. I still just enjoy blogging for fun, so I’m not ready to make any major changes yet, but I thought a new look might freshen it up for the new year. This blog is always a work in progress. I just want to thank everyone for your emails, pins likes and just for reading Thrifty Wife, Happy Life! I felt like 2016 was a major year for my blog. I gained so many new readers and followers, so thank you! It means a lot to me! I look forward to making 2017 an even better year!
Today, I thought that I would share a post that I started working on before Christmas. I bought this blush long cardigan sweater at Target (exact) while I was doing a bit of Christmas shopping. My closet is full of neutral colors, so I thought it might be nice to have a blush cardigan to add a touch of color. I love how versatile cardigans can be. You can layer them over almost any top. Here are four ways that I’ve styled my blush cardigan.
For this first look, I layered the cardigan over a black LC Lauren Conrad top from Kohl’s (similar). I like how the blouse dresses up a simple look with leggings.
I feel like I’m always wearing stripes, so of course, I layered the cardigan with my stripe tunic from Old Navy (exact). I like to cuff my long sleeve shirts when I layer them with a sweater. I just like the look that it gives.
For this look, I added a green statement necklace to add some more color to the look. Pink and green are 2 of my favorite colors, so I always like to mix them together.
I always love a good scarf layered look. I really love this simple silver scarf. I found it at Five Below for $5 a few years back. I always say that I will buy my clothes and accessories from any store, as long as it’s cute and a good deal. Sometimes you never know what you will find at stores like Five Below or the Dollar Tree. This simple scarf is one of my most worn scarves because it’s so basic and matches every outfit.
That’s how I’m styling my long cardigan. How do you style your cardigans?
