This zip-up cardigan was the first thing I bought on my first hour-long shopping trip with a friend after having Naiya. I had been going through major shopping withdrawal (not to mention I’d been going completely stir-crazy stuck at home for so many weeks!) as I continued to heal from my c-section. We popped into Free People because it was the closest clothing store to my house and I so badly wanted to be able to shop but also get back to feed Naiya quickly.
My friend spotted this super soft, comfy cardigan before I did and she was the first to fall in love. Of course when I saw it on her, I knew we both had to have it. Needless to say, we’ve been twinning ever since. I love the cardigan’s extra voluminous sleeves, it’s roomy fit, as well as the pretty red embroidery down the front.
Today, I paired the cardigan with my favorite loafers (that I’ve been wearing almost every day this fall–they truly go with everything), distressed black skinny jeans, round sunnies and a simple black tee.
