Cardigans are the New Black

Well, the title is just to say that my obsession this late summer is oversized cardigans.  I've purchased several in somewhat varying styles (in colors of olive/camel/taupe/tan/gray) recently, although this is one I had from last year.  Another thing I've acquired is a sleeveless oversized sweater and a sleeveless cardigan that I'll wear with another layer underneath.  I am gearing up for the fall/winter season, but  I can wear lighter weight cardigans like this one pretty much all year round.  This cardigan has sleeves that can be rolled up and buttoned or let down for cooler days.

This outfit fits into my idea of a casual California Chic style that I love.

Linking up with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday.  Come join the fun! :)

  1. This striped cardi is just lovely and you'll be wearing it a lot I think! Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday, xox.

  2. You will get a lot of wear out of all of these pieces, Lisa. You look great!

  3. Very cute. You have a natural instinct for what works on you.

  4. Śliczny kardigan i zawsze podziwiam Twoje szale:))Pozdrawiam serdecznie:))

  5. I totally agree .. and much more forgiving than a jacket .. you can usually throw a sweater in your car .. but throw a jacket in the car = wrinkles.


  6. Wow, what great buys! Cute look!

  7. Really cute look! I love Bobeau - their cardigans are so pretty and comfortable. I love how you wore your scarf.

  8. Transition wear at it's best. That's the great thing about these big, lovely cardies ... they're the statement piece, and you can style up or down at will. They look cozy and not elderly; my fear with a sweater, but one must stay light-weight-warm and you do it, as always, in style!

  9. Thank you so much for visiting my blog Lisa and for leaving me such a lovely comment. You look great. Very chic casual style !

  10. Hi, you look great. I like the long cardigan and I am one to purchase something I like in more than one color as well. Love your makeup too!
