Waffle Knit Cardigan

free people cardigan outfit

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I was busy running around all day Saturday for a pretty busy week. But more on that later. Today’s look is all about spring and summer layers. Although the temperatures can get pretty warm in the D.C. area during the summer months, there are some cool nights when a lightweight cardigan is the ideal accessory.

 Waffle Knit Cardigan: Free People | White Tee: Nordstrom | Jeans: Articles of Society {under $60!} | Espadrilles: Marc Fisher | Bag: Tory Burch {new version HERE} | Earrings: Sheila Fajl | Sunglasses: Karen Walker | Lipstick: #47 & #200

I wore this cardigan for my flight out to the west coast yesterday and it was SO comfy. I saw it online a few weeks ago and knew I had to have it. This waffle fabric makes for the perfect sweater for spring, and even as we head into summer. Also available in a gorgeous coral, I personally couldn’t resist this green shade -- it's such a fresh color for the season. I just love the way it looks with all white and the tan accessories, too. One more piece to note before I wrap up today’s post: I had been looking for a pair of distressed white jeans for the majority of spring and I came across these about 2 months ago. They are under $60 and are so soft and comfortable – it doesn’t even feel like you’re wearing jeans! As for sizing, I went down a size and they fit perfectly.

I apologize for the short post -- I am typing this from 35,000 feet on my way to LA for a special event that I cannot wait to share with you on Thursday! If you want a peek ahead of time, be sure to follow along on Instagram {rach.mccarthy} and Snapchat {rach.mccarthy7}. Have a great start to the week and see you back here tomorrow for healthy spin on a favorite comfort food!

  21. What a pretty cardigan. So fun, unique and oversized. I would have chosen the green over the coral too because it is more different. Welcome by Thursdays and linkup with me pretty lady. Love your style. =)
