I was looking for something to wear to work the other day, and was struck by the fact that it was high summer outside, hot enough to fry eggs on a sidewalk, but still winter in my office. I get around the problem of how to wear sleeveless dresses and blouses to work when it’s freezing inside and boiling outside, usually by pairing them with cardigans.
But sometimes I get sick of the same old neutral black or tan sweaters. White makes me look ghostlier than I already do, and yellow usually makes me look jaundiced. That is, until I saw this pale yellow cardigan at Banana Republic, Home of the Most Awesome Cardis for Work, and fell deeply in love with it, viewing it as the perfect business casual accessory for several thrifted sundresses I’ve bought recently.
When I saw it in the store, I thought, “No way am I gonna shell out $50 for a cardigan to go with a $12 thrifted dress,” but an online summer sale (40% off with code BRSUMMER) brings the price down considerably, and I can’t find anything else even close to this terrific pale yellow at anywhere close to this price. Throw in a non-iron mini stripe shirt on sale for $10.79, and I get free shipping, too.
So, coming right up, one sunny side up cardi.
