This past season I was hoping to find a great longer basic neutral cardigan of some sort. I thought I had found the perfect one a few months back but alas, it wasn't meant to be. The fit was WAY off and just didn't flatter me at all. Back to the drawing board. When the Blanched & Buckled cardigan finally went on sale I thought I'd give it a fit all the criteria I was looking for on paper so I crossed my fingers and went for it. It took me a while, but I was finally able to hunt one down back in NYC and did a charge send for it. It finally arrived and I fell in love. It's SOOO soft and very warm and looks cute styled open or closed (it can be hard to find one like that). I'm so glad to have found it and see it being a key piece in my wardrobe for years to come. Here's how I styled it for my first wear:

Today was a busy and productive Saturday. I picked up the house, ran, went grocery shopping, did lots of laundry, met up with friends at the park for a play date (it was GORGEOUS here today!!!), had breakfast for dinner with my cute kiddos and hubby and topped off the night with a little fro-yo for dessert. Can't complain. Hubby is in the kitchen getting some food started for our Superbowl dinner tomorrow. I honestly couldn't even tell you who's playing...I just watch for the commercials. =)

Hope you have a great rest of the weekend!


  1. I love productive Saturdays! Mine are usually productive if I can pull myself out of bed before 9 on a Saturday, otherwise I feel behind all day long! You are on top of things, and one stylish mama! :)

  2. You look great in the cardigan! I snatched it up during the sweater sale but the color was not flattering on me and the weave seemed really loose. Now I'm wondering if mine was defective. Its definitely a versatile piece though. Congrats on your find! :)

  3. Love the pink with the green and beige :) Very cute outfit!

  4. i am trying to have one of those productive days today since my car is in the shop! somehow my computer keeps luring me in. =) the only part of superbowl i watched was madonna...she was amazing! LOVE the cardigan sweater.
