The past two week have been a bit of a whirlwind starting with a trip to Maine (recap coming soon), and then my birthday. Now that I am back in Dallas and have some free time, I am finally catching up and sharing my new favorite long linen cardigan. Before our trip, Alex and I had a weekday date on Greenville to try Toasted, which was absolutely delicious! I like dressing up a little for our dates but also wanted to be comfortable, so I took one of my comfortable outfits and dressed it up with heels and accessories.
This long linen cardigan from Nordstrom is a great transition piece for spring and fall. It layers well with tanks, tees, dresses, and comes in five versatile colors (I have it in black too, of course). While linen is perfect for spring through fall, it isn’t warm enough for winter months. Luckily Nordstrom carries a cashmere version of this cardigan, and it happens to be a part of their Anniversary Sale which ends on August 6th. I have already stocked up on a few colors in the cashmere as well (whoops!). Both the linen and cashmere versions fit true to size (wearing a small) and can easily be worn as long sleeved or pushed up to three quarter sleeved. For date night I layered the cardigan over a silk tank from J.Crew and my favorite distressed white jeans also from J.Crew. The tank fits true to size (wearing a 0) and it comes in multiple colors and patterns. I shared these jeans a while ago and love them in both black and white (wearing 26 regular). I dressed up this basic look with strappy heels (similar), a timeless Rebecca Minkoff clutch, and fun tassel earrings. Shop this look below and if you find yourself on Greenville, be sure to try Toasted! xoxo
