What I Wish I Wore, Vol. 61 – Art Work

Art Work
*“What I Wish I Wore Wednesday” utilizes Polyvore to show you an outfit with some Target items to communicate what I wish I was wearing on this Wednesday and just how easy it is to look cute on a budget.

I’m a little sick of winter styles already this season, and we haven’t even really had “that bad” of a winter here in the Midwest (now that I said that, we’ll probably have a snowstorm this week).

So today, in this post, since I can do whatever I want, here’s an outfit that would work equally well in winter (grab a coat and gloves) and/or spring/fall (the tights/cardigan combo might make you sweat a bit in the summer time!). I’m also loving the rich, almost Marsala color (cough Color of the Year) of the cardigan and purse paired with the classic navy.

Can’t ask for much more than that, huh?

Items from the Look:

  • J.Crew Factory Cardigan (I love the shades of this style…does anyone have one of these and have a good review of it?)
  • J.Crew Factory Modern Geometric Collection Tee
  • Merona Tortoise Shell Clubmaster Sunglasses
  • Merona Navy Herringbone Tights
  • J.Crew Factory Flare Skirt
  • Bueno Red Crossbody Satchel Purse
  • A2 by Aerosoles Navy Ankle Boot

  • Sarah

    That t-shirt is awesome!!

    I have a couple of the Clare cardigans and love them to death. I’m fairly short in the torso and they hit just where I want them to, above the hips. I try to be gentle on them though, and wash them on delicate. I picked them both up for about $15 at a Fourth of July sale at the J.Crew Factory store in Edinburgh.

    • Things I did not need to know about….Fourth of July sales! ;) But seriously, thanks for the review of the cardigans! I think I might have to scope them out for a good deal and then snag a couple!

  • Guess who has this skirt… Thanks for the outfit idea! So cute. And wearing just the t-shirt and skirt with some cute flats would be a great way to transition it to spring, don’t you think?

    • Free of charge for outfit ideas! ;) And yes, I would love to see it with some cute flats and an adorable bright color crossbody purse! So many options!

  • HeyBeckyJ

    I love this outfit! Very cute!

  • Rebecca

    I love all of this. I would definitely wear it in winter (the non-snowy parts) or more favorably, SPRING!

  • This might just be one of my favorite outfits yet.

  • Katherine

    The J.Crew Factory cardigans are great! I own three, including that color, and always recommend them to friends. I wash them inside out with the buttons done-up and they still look great after many washes.

    • Katherine – 1. Awesome name (that’s my full name too!). 2. Thanks so much for letting me know about the sweaters! I’m going to have to wait for them to go on sale (J.Crew Factory’s sales are so weird sometimes) and then take your advice about how to wash them…brilliant!
