Monday is my day to hang out at the local coffee shop, have some warm and yummy drinks, and work on my school projects. Today I decided to do more than my usual sloppy look and grabbed for a more cozy outfit to wear. Although it briefly snowed last night, today had a little warmth to it, so I decided on a light cardigan as the focus of my outfit.

Cropped cardigans used to be my wardrobe staple in high school and early college. The fact that they stopped right above my  hips meant they fit me much better than longer cardigans, but I had stopped liking how they looked awhile ago, and I’m still kind of wishy-washy on whether I really like it now. When I wear them now, it just feels like I bought something in petite when it would have looked much better in a long. Although the length kind of bugs me, I really like the design/pattern of the knit cardigan. It was comfy and interesting–just how I like my clothing. I added on some tan accessories and a few pieces of jewelry I picked up recently.

This mixed metal and stone necklace from Urban Outfitters has become my recent favorite. Add it over a basic tee and you’re set. I also was wearing my “R” ring that I got from Urban Outfitters.

 Old Navy cardigan, Old Navy tall tank top, City Chic jeans, Old Navy flats, Urban Outfitters necklace, Urban Outfitters ring, Nordstrom BP bucket bag (similar but better bag)

Besides the fact that I wore my cardigan with the price tag hanging out all day (typical) and my hair falling flat upon going outside, it was a pretty good, relaxed day. I even got some packages wrapped for people who had bought from my e-shop (yay productivity!). I hope you had a happy Monday! 🙂

How do you feel about cropped cardigans? What outfit do you envision when you think “Coffee Shop Casual”?
