spring vibes and the perfect longer cardigan

The Sweater I’ve Been Living In

6 March

I spent all of last week and this past weekend living in this longer cardigan… a recent Free People / Nordstrom find.  It is pretty much perfect if you ask me.  It is satisfying my urge for everything cream and white at the moment (hello March!, hello pre-spring vibes!).  Is extra long and has a nice cozy weight to it.  Has pockets!… and can be dressed up and down.  Case in point: I wore it wine tasting with white wide-leg denim (obsessed!), threw it over a longer maxi dress for an evening out and lived in it this past weekend with boyfriend jeans and a simple white tee.  I could go on…

I can always count on Nordstrom when looking for everyday pieces, and as a new mom, easy pieces like this that I can throw on over every thing are my jam.  I’ve been having a lot of great luck with Free People sweaters lately.  This one in particular reminded me of my favorite Isabel Marant sweater (that a lot of you always ask me about) but just longer.  It’s a nice option for this transitional season and falls somewhere in-between a knit and a coat.  Order your size or size down (I’m wearing an XS) as it’s oversized.

A few additional Free People styles I’m crushing on…

Speaking of wine tasting–a day trip into wine country last week was just what the doctor ordered.  It was the longest I had been away from Rex and I was nervous leading up to the day but I’ll tell you what, enjoying a glass of rosé with girlfriends and celebrating the dose of spring-like weather sure was a treat!  Between last week’s Sonoma outing and a recent hair color refresh (I’m going lighter and warmer with the apricot hues again)–I felt like I officially stepped out of my new mama daze back into my old self.  Or rather, a newly rejuvenated, inspired, sense of confidence and excited for warm weather adventure-ing self.
