I have always loved the look of a casual longline cardigan but never felt brave enough to pull it off with my 5’4 height. I thought they would make me look even shorter and something only 6 ft tall models could truly pull off and look amazing while wearing it! Well, needless to say, I was wandering through Forever21 and came across this one and loved it’s simplicity and the fact that it was cream and a good knit. I tried it on and instantly pictured so many outfits in my head and decided regardless of my preconceived notions about them, and my not-so-model-like height, I needed it! I paired it with my fav faux leather leggings which have been one of my go-to’s these days with my growing baby bump – they’re comfortable yet chic and stylish at the same time. Throw on a floppy hat and some cute booties and you have yourself a cozy and stylish outfit for the day. So for all of us short(er) girls out there who thought that these longline cardigans only suit taller frames – aka model-types – try the cardigan on anyways, you might be as surprised as I was, and fall in love with it.
Happy Monday loves – hope your weekend was perfect!
