I am adding scarves to the pearls and cardigans equation today...since it can be cool during the transition to spring/summer.
Here is an outfit I put together with a previous season Talbots 3/4 sleeve cardigan and Chicos black knit pants. The sweater is a light cotton in light tan and black. I wear this sweater over black sleeveless dresses also since I like for my clothes to do double and triple duty!
I added a light camel scarf and beige pearls...well, glass beads, which are Monet from Macys several years ago.
I wanted to see what a black scarf would look like instead of the camel. So, I wrapped a black one around my leopard sweater. I wear so much black...and I might prefer the black over the camel. What do you think? Black vs Camel? Hmmm.
I have put an over the door set of hooks on the bedroom door where I can hang my "outfits." I can put together two or three complete looks and have them at the ready.
