Do you ever fall in love with a color? I’m absolutely SMITTEN with this one! 💛
(I’m wearing the XS Petite in the cardigan, XS in the top, 27P in the jeans.)
An off-white and gold outfit with a linen cardigan
Linen cardigans and sweaters have become one of my summer wardrobe staples. They’re perfect to throw on for air-conditioned interiors, or those evenings when the fog rolls in.
I mentioned last weekend’s newsletter that I’d ordered this linen-blend cardigan, and had my fingers crossed about the color. Specifically, that it would be as bright and saturated as it appeared online. It did NOT disappoint! This honey gold is one of my best (and favorite) colors. (It’s also offered in black and winter white.)
I wanted to create a look that was relaxed but polished. A column of color (in this case, off-white) is an easy way to make even a casual outfit more elegant. Normally I would have worn the top with a half-tuck, but in this case preferred it loose. (This top is going to be included in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale…so if you’re interested add to your Wish List to purchase once you have access to the sale.)

(I love the shape of that heel!!)
While I’ve created this outfit in off-white and gold, you could use any combination of 2 neutrals or colors for a similar effect. This cardigan “plays well with others” in my summer wardrobe, so you’ll probably be seeing more outfits with it soon!
More style chats coming your way…
I’ll be going LIVE today at 11am PT / 2pm ET with the Over 50 Style Team, Jennifer, Tania and Deborah (who is hosting this week). We’ll be talking today about color and how much does it matter? If you can’t watch it live, I’ll share a link next week.
And next Tuesday (time to be confirmed but probably 11am PT / 2pm ET), I’ll be going live on Instagram with Annie Castaño of CASTANOHEL. She’ll be taking us through her method for CLOSET DETOX (and post-detox organizing). If you aren’t able to watch live, this will be posted on my IGTV feed afterward, and I’ll share a link here as well.
