The Cardigan is a must with the fall weather, it’s getting colder so a cardigan will help keep you warm. This is also a great way to make a new outfit. Take those jeans and white shirt mentioned above add in a cardigan and some accessories and you have a great outfit. Next week switch up a different cardigan and different accessories but the same jeans and white shirt (after they are washed of course!) and bam, you have a whole new outfit!
Buy End of Season
