pom pom cardigan

So often we think we need to go shopping and buy something new, when really we just need to think outside the box in our own closet.

Exhibit A: belting a cardigan sweater as a top!  When I got this chunky cardigan, I thought it would not only be a great layering piece, but also fab on its own.  This could also work with a v neck cardigan buttoned up as a top or a loose fitting blazer belted as a top… get creative!

I paired this with faux leather pants, but I think it would look great with high waisted jeans or fitted boyfriend jeans.  When the top is chunky knit, I try to balance it out with something more fitted on the bottom so I don’t lose my shape entirely.

  1. Great outfit – love that sweater! I just ordered the belt the other day but won’t get it for at least a month. I’m also loving your haircut. Thanks for sharing your lovely style!

  2. I love the belted cardigan look! One of the reasons why I love your style Kathleen is that you always get creative and care more about styling than new pieces. I feel like so often I see bloggers just wear new things and then never wear them again. I love that you get creative and really rewear your pieces and you inspire me as a reader to really get creative in my closet. Love this look! Happy Monday!


    1. LINDA! You’re the nicest ever. Thank you so much for this kind feedback. I try to show the versatility of pieces so CBL readers can get the maximum wear out of their closet. I really appreciate your sweet support!
