Cardigans: From Business Casual to Weekend Wardrobe

Now that we’re in mid-October we are in all out AUTUMN MODE! That means sweater weather and there is no type of sweater more versatile than the always-loved cardigan!

Cardigans come in all shapes and sizes, but it’s hard to beat a long-length, lightweight cardigan. It’s perfect for layering and can go from business casual for work to all-out sweater and jeans casual for weekend fun.

Today you can score an AMAZING deal on the Annabelle cardigan. This cardigan started as Cents of Style’s best-selling cardigan from last year, and with shopper feedback, they made it even better! It’s lightweight, making it easy to layer, and it has an open front feature, which makes it one of the most versatile cardigans you can own.

There are plenty of colors to choose from with sizes that range from S to 3X, and with this price, you may want to pick up a second for your collection (or a third, or fourth…).

Style Tips:
*Layer your cardigan with a tunic and leggings. Add a skinny belt to dress up your look a little bit.
*Take your cardigan out for the night! Pair it with your little black dress, heels, and bold jewelry.
*Jeans and a tee kind of day? No problem! Throw on Annabelle to make your ensemble a little more polished.
*Annabelle is perfect for the office. Pair it with a pencil skirt and your favorite blouse for a chic business look.
Please let me know if you have any questions at all! Thank you so much!

Kate Middleton in Superga Classic Sneakers

If you happened to see any photos of Kate Middleton awarding medals this weekend at The Virgin Money London Marathon, you may have noticed her sneakers. They are the same super-comfy shoes adored by models when they have a chance to step out of the high heels – Superga Classic Sneakers.

It’s not a surprise to see her wearing them, because they are super comfy while still being stylish in classic white cotton. They’re perfect for watching runners at the marathon or for running your own errands around town.

What’s even better? They are NOT pricey! They retail for $65, but you can get them for less – as in only $37.99 here. I’m totally not surprised to see Kate wearing such a reasonably priced shoe, and why not? They look great!
