Fall is good because of the cardi's







I love a good cardigan !
It's like comfort food but doesn't (always) makes you pile on the pounds.
I found a great 100% cashmere cardi at Zara's yesterday. Never imagined Zara would have natural materials ; at least, not the 100% kind.
I could already start to live in my cardi...it feels really soft and good.
I decided to go back to basics ; fashionwise that is. I've seen some good ways to wear that cardi.
Cozy, messy and chic...(just need to add the accessories and voilà).
Fashionwise, I like Fall the best...you can start up layering your clothes again. Summer gave us the chance to let our skin breathe and once the leafs start falling again, we need to cover up that sunny glow. The best way to do so is to use natural fabrics like (eco) cottons, wool and my fave wool, cashmere...

I'm a cardigan whore myself, can't get enough! Found one in green and purple at J Crew's sample sale the other day but unfortunately it was a size Medium (as was everything else in the store) *shakes head in disappointment*

That cardi in the photo is such a pretty color, what I can see of it. Your scarf is mega, you could wrap it around you like a dress I bet.
I bought myself a cardi as well, and it's already my favorite.
@JFK Jean: I would love to go into J Crew's sale and find everything in medium. That would be a dream come true for me.
@Dennis: Enjoy the sunshine in London while it lasts, it's rare.

I always wear a cardi when it's chilly outside. I'm kind addicted to them and have loads of them!!
I like Jay-Z's cardi!!

I don't wear them personally but I LOVE them on women!

hey Dominica I have a question, what is that little scarf french girls wear around their neck, kind of tightly?

I think your old icon picture had you wearing one if I remember correctly. I always really liked seeing that on girls but I only seemed to see it on french women especially, what is that called?

@Mr C.
I would just call it a 'foulard' ; that's what we say over here too. Just last week I ordered my scarfs for the shop and you've got the long ones (the leopard skin one like mine in pic here above), you've got the huge ones = pareo's (you can wrap these like a beachdress around you) and foulards are the small square ones. You could also use the word 'carré', that's what they do at Hermès and it liturally means 'square' because they are shaped like that...
