Fresh snow

Had a little more snow last night and while it's gotten colder I hear tell of some 40+ degree weather headed my way by Friday -- gee, that sounds like a veritable heatwave!

The brown striped shirt under my cardigan is a staple in my wardrobe. I've worn it here, plus countless other times pre-blog. It's got a bit of a satiny quality to it so that rather than being stiff, it drapes instead -- key for a button down shirt, especially when worn as a layering piece.

Both the shirt & the gray cardigan are from Kohls. I kept looking & looking for a gray cardi because I felt it too would become a wardrobe staple & go nicely with alot of my shirts. Happily I finally this found one. I particularly like the peplum detail because it helps to create an hourglass shape by adding definition to my waist -- one of my preferences when it comes to cardigans. This way it gives nearly the same effect a structured jacket would, but yet a cardi is way more comfy for a mom on the go :)

The necklace is from Target, as well as the black short boots. The jeans are my ubiquitous Ralph Lauren :)

Stay warm everyone and have a great day!

You're right, the peplum detail does create a lovely hourglass silhouette.

I agree with Cat - that cardi was a great, figure-defining choice.

What a cute cardi! I like the cabling detail on the top of it.

I have never been in a Kohl's. ALl of your posts are making me reconsider that. Do they still have the Vera Wang line?

Great cardi, such a nice shape and fit. I've got a gray cardi too and wear it with EVERYTHING!
