How to Wear a Long Cardigan

For those of you who work in offices, do they keep your buildings ice cold? Mine is like a perpetual icebox, regardless of the season. Without layering up, I’d spend half the day shivering. (So maybe I can blame cold office environments for my hot tea obsession?!) Layering with cardigans is one of my favorite ways to stay warm while keeping a professional look. To mix it up, I recently broke out my oversized long cardigan and paired it with a polka dot popover.

The last time I wore my long cardi was for a relaxed weekend look with a plain white tee and leggings. I love how versatile a good cardigan is!

    Yes, my office is always freezing cold too. I can’t live without my cardigans! I love how you styled this one, the neutral color looks great with everything! I need one like that.

    My place of work (the library) is always cold, too — but there’s a reason! (Libraries need to be consistently cooler to help preserve the collections and extend their shelf life.) So there’s a reason why librarians — and lots of other workers, obviously — wear lots of cardigans… they’re so useful! 🙂
