LONG CARDIGAN LOVE, WUW & FALL FASHION FRENZY

The theme today led by our lovely Lana is Long Cardigans. Oh and Happy Halloween! I have really been living in Long Cardigans lately. I think the key to a polished look is a sleek silhouette in the back. You know what I mean, no pockets or shorter shirts in the back messing up the sleek line of the cardigan. 

I love pairing a dress, especially a swing dress, with a long Cardi. This sweater is from our local super grocery named Meijer and oh how I love the colors. I also have fallen in love with the easy to wear Karen Kane black jersey dress. It is comfy, conceals where you need it to, can be dressed up or down and the fit just feels so good on. Pair it with my OTK boots to make it a little saucy!

  4. You are rocking that Brit Spears costume! I'm glad you posted here because it didn't show in my IG feed - crazy Instagram algorithms. Thanks for posting the TBB Asks graphic...my fave. We are becoming the "full size" candy house this year. Costco had a great deal, and I think it will be fun!

  11. This is a wonderful look, Andrea. One doesn't often think to pair long over short, well not this "one" anyway-ha! It takes what could be plain pieces and really elevates them. Your mom is just as beautiful and stylish as you are--she passed on great genes!

  12. I'm totally copying that look, I love it! I love Reese's too!

  14. Oh my gosh Andrea! I had to do a triple take because I thought that was a then/now photo of Britney herself! Wow you two look a lot alike!! Okay, now that I've processed that, this cardigan!! SO gorgeous I cannot believe you got it at the grocery store!! What the what? Love how you styled it. You look amazing my friend! :)

  17. Your Britney costume is adorable :) I love that long cardigan--the stripes and pretty colors are so fun! I've been wanting to add some longer-length cardis to my wardrobe too. My mouth is watering over that beef and broccoli--but I'm the only broccoli fan in my house. Maybe I'll make it for myself!

  25. I love that outfit that started off this post. That's right up my alley. Unless I am working with kinders and that is not up my alley one bit LOL! How do you get extra daylight in the evenings after you fall back an hour???? I'm so confused on that because we sure as sugar don't get that in NC. And I'm super sad regarding that! xo

  44. You have some great outfit inspo here! I have to ask how tall you are, as I am always wary of wearing a long cardie being so short at 5ft2, but the cardigan looks great on you. Looking forward to seeing you Christmas bedroom ideas, it is an area of the house we often forget to decorate. Looking fabber than Britney x

  52. They definitely deserve applause for the nice selection of bread and the service at this place which was good from start to finish. The mass produced filet was too good. This is the best event venue Atlanta for hosting great events. The venue can accommodate as many as 850 guests or as little as 50.

  57. Love how you styled the long cardigan with the boots and black dress. The cardigan looks so comfy and the colors are perfect for Fall. Being cozy is no doubt the best to be snuggled up at home with a soft throw blanket and cup of coffee in the morning or wine at night. I can't wait to see how your Christmas bedroom turns out. My favorite time of the year! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis
