Poppy and Grey


**the photo is mismarked. The cardigan is from J.Crew, not the factory.


Cardigan: J.Crew
Pants: Gap

I'm glad I cleaned out my jewelry armoire recently because I stumbled across this little gem that I made last year. 

Also, you should know that I own this cardigan in 3 colors. I confessed my addiction of buying the same clothes in different colors at the conference last weekend, and now it's time I confess here on the blog. Turns out, my sister does the same thing.

What can I say? When you love it you love it! And this "sweater"--it's really more t-shirt material--it perfection. 

That's all.

  13. I really loved your cardigans at the conference! And I was very amused when you said your sister picks on you, then, she posts about her having the same t-shirts, but in different colors, lol :-)

  16. I'm a sucker for cardigans. I wear one everyday (I think I have an addiction). Tried to find your Jcrew sweater, but the link was broken. :(

  17. I love this color combo! I always tend to mix gray and more muted colors like mustard but it looks great with poppy. Is that the Perfect Fit cardigan from J Crew? I love their PF tee shirts and was considering buying the cardigan for fall layering.

  18. Love the cardigan, I wish I looked that good but for some reason I always look 60 in a cardigan. I wish I knew what I was doing wrong.

  19. Great outfit! I love pairing gray with a bit of color.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Beautiful! And you DID warn us that those grey pants would be a fall staple of yours. ;) Love them! I love your earrings and necklace too!

  21. I have definitely bought things in different colors...when you love something and it's flattering and perfect, grab it and make the most of it!

    I've enjoyed your hair tutorials for ages, and am now really enjoying your lovely outfit posts.

  25. I buy things in multiples as well-- sometimes not even a different color. I have 2 pairs of the exact same Gap jeans but they are THE JEANS so I can't ever have a pair be in the laundry without a back up! :)

  26. LOVE the combination! I have that cardi in navy (it was a gift) and I've been looking to buy another one but could never find it. Now I can buy more!

  28. Where did you get necklace from?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Pretty sure I need this cardigan. In this color :)

  30. Girl, that color is absolutely stunning on you!! It is seriously your color. I love J. Crew cardigans. I have far too many of them, but it is truly an addiction.

  31. I really don't think you could look bad, even in puce and brown. I love that poppy color with gray. It's so hard to find in the fall when everything is burgundy, eggplant and bittersweet.

  32. GREAT color combo!

  40. I do the same thing- find a shirt or sweater and buy it in multiple colours!

    I love that Poppy and grey combo. I am obsessed with grey!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. My husband picks on me and will ask why I have the same item in multiple colors. If I find something I like then I stock up.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have that same cardigan in two different shades of blue. It is the best fitting one I have ever bought!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love your combo here....I also purchase multiple same items in different colors...when you find something that works...go with it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Your best outfit!!!!I wore today my first cardigan from Jcrew factory, and i have to say i am very disappointing with the quality, regular jcrew store has much better quality. What is even more disappointing is the fact that jcrew factory is also pretty pricey and one would expect at least some quality.
    But once again this outfit is your best!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. lovely color combo for Autumn! any chance you'll make that necklace again for your Etsy shop?!?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Love the staples with a burst of colour! Super chic x

    ReplyDelete
  47. The color of that cardigan is amazing! I'm loving pink-y reds right now!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Do you wear something under your white tank to make it not see-through? Whenever I wear this type of outfit I usually end up buttoning the cardigan because the tank is see-through :S

    1. I wear two tanks. BUT you can wear a nude cami (a very thin one) under your white tank to get ride of "bra" lines!

  53. I am trying to determine the correct size on the JCrew cardigan, but there are no reviews on the site. Would anyone care to share their height/weight to assist with sizing? Thank you so much!!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I was going to ask the same question about sizing. If you do not mind sharing, what size of the J Crew sweater do you have on in the picture?

  55. I love your classic, elegant style!!!
