The Perfect Drapey Cardigan

You know when you have an idea of how something should be and then it turns out even better? No, I’m not talking about hopes and dreams and life — I’m talking about this cardigan. I saw it on the model and wanted it to fit exactly how it does, but I was skeptical because it looks kind of short on her. I took a chance because I’m always willing to take a chance on a Gemma pink anything. Turns out it fits super drapey (AKA the perfect amount drape) and the length is just right. I don’t know why this cardigan looks slouchier on me than the model, but probably just the way they have it styled. (For reference: I stayed true to size (I’m in the medium) and love the way it fits. You can find the cardigan here.)

When I was looking at these photos I thought that the knee rips in these jeans should have been, well… at my knees. I was looking at the photos thinking no way that my knees are THAT misplaced on my leg and how have I lived so long with low hanging knees? After further investigation, the knee rips are definitely more thigh rips, so that’s a big sigh of relief. For once it was you, jeans, and not me.

PS: this denim is from Shopbop and is eligible for their Buy More / Save More sale event! You can find the jeans here and if you buy $200 or more, save 15% with code GOBIG18. I’ll do my round-up of my favorite finds from the sale tomorrow!

Editor's Notes:

I did not size down in these jeans like some of the reviews suggested but stay true to size and I’m so glad I did! They are more of a mid-rise but they are so flattering and have a great fit. Lots of stretch! This cardigan I stayed true to size!
