OOTD: layers upon layers

I've only recently gotten into these layered, open-front, "waterfall", "hanky-hem", whatever you call it cardigans.


(with all the charm of our apartment building hallway)

I really dig this one that I picked up at Alloy a few months ago. It's very warm too, which was perfect for the autumn-come-early evening we were having Saturday.

One think I love about this look is that the points of the cardigan hit below the hem of the dress! I'm learning to embrace shorter hemlines this summer and to love the way my knees look.


Go knees, go.

Outfit details:
Cardigan: alloy (whose "extended sizes", as they call them, are super difficult to find. It's like they're ashamed or something. Anyways.)
Dress: fatshionista sales post
Belt: Target 2xl, recent
shoes: Avenue, recent (my old lady boat shoes)
scarf: AA circle scarf
purse: garage sale

Also, if you want to enter my giveaway, you have until 11:59pm(PST) on Wednesday, 8/25. Go forth and do so, if you'd like. It's for one of two $15 eShakti gift certificates!
