Light Layering with a Cardigan

It’s officially cardigan season in the Lou. I’ve been reaching for my J.Crew Jackie cardigans—my favorite cardigans—on chilly mornings. The Jackie has bracelet sleeves, longer than a three-quarter length sleeve, but short enough to showcase an arm party. This cardigan style is also made of a cotton blend, a huge relief for those of us with wool sensitivities. The combination of the fabric and sleeve length make this cardigan the perfect all-season topper. Let’s just say, I stock up on these cardigans when they go on sale.

Location: The Climatron®, Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis

    How long ago did you get the shirt from Ross? It looks great.

      It was a recent purchase, Jenn. I definitely got it in the last 2 weeks.
