I am a little fussy when it comes to cardigans. I think I own maybe three. They need to have enough cool-factor in the form of unique chunky knitting and veer further from preppy, and more so casual, beach chic. I’m obsessed with all things by I Love Mr. Mittens and Iris Von Arnim. Their prices are a bit steep so I always have an eye out for a similar vibe.
I walked into Gap recently and scored this one for 50% off! I envision it over slinky silk dresses, over a swimsuit on beach days, and an outfit like this for a backyard casual BBQ. I went up a size and think even two sizes up would work as it is pretty form fitting if you go true to size.
As for the rest of the look! I always love distressed white jeans for warmer temps… these ones are by J. Brand via Shopbop and I wear them all the time. And this silk tank is an always go-to as well (more options here).
