Cardigan Weather.

Crimson Urban Outfitters glasses, Tan F21 knit cardigan, Black Target floral dress, Brown Threadsence boots.

Not only is the title of this post true, this weather is meant for cardigans..well knit cardigans, but the title is also a song by one of my faavorite bands - Meg and Dia.  I've loved them ever since they started out, back during Warped Tour when they had a Myspace tent lol.  Just a random fact I thought I'd share with my readers :).  Along with this kind of music, I loove Regina Spektor, Lily Allen, She & Him, Feist, and all I can think of at the top of my head haha.  I love romantic, sweet, soft, and fun songs from these artists, my kind of music.

Wearing here, my fave knit cardigan, keeps me warm in this draab cold weather we're having here in Cali.  Along with this, am wearing my new Threadsence boots!  I won a giveaway from the gorgeous Natalie of Natalie Off Duty.  They're soo comfy and stylish to wear on a rainy day :).  And one of my fav floral dresses, with a lace scallop design on the bottom, is actually from Target!  I've had some great finds from Target, it will continue to be one of my fave Super Stores, besides regular retail stores, to buy inexpensive and beautiful clothing.

Don't forget to join my Blog Shop giveaway! Created to spread the love to all of you beautiful readers for supporting my blog :).  It's posted below this post as well - and open to domestic (US) & international readers! :)

I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far, and in my previous New Years Eve post, I asked what people would like to see more of on Inspirafashion.  A majority of you had said keep doing outfit posts, but a few people had said to do a post on my closet, my bargain fashion finds, and a video blog post.  Will def keep that in mind for future ones :).

<3, Kathleen.

Rebecca Maureen said...

come to the east coast and I'll give you some real cardigan weather KC, haha...actually let me come to the westcoast. it's freezing and snowing :( yuck. i think the glasses add a million points to this outfit. love it!!!

Elle said...

you look gorgeous as usual- love the lipstick color. and those shoes ... ahhh. shoe envy! :P (as usual. you have FABULOUS shoes)

Anisa said...

AH girly, this outfit is such a nice middle finger to the frigid weather that's bestowed upon norcal, i love it! especially those boots, what a nice girly version of the doc martens!

we have similar music taste! i love lily allen to pieces (saw her twice in concert in sf! she was fabulous!) she & him is so tastefully folky and quirk (saw them from afar when they were at the levis event in union square, sf too!) regina spektor reminds me of the perfection that is the 500 days of summer soundtrack, ah!

one more week until we're back in school, ready? i know i am (minus the school work :( ) maybe i'll see you around campus again!


gloomy said...

this outfit is goorgeous!
i love that dress, i saw it several times but never seemed to find it in my size. D':

I actually want to steal your wardrobe.

Loveee Regina Spektor since myspace days. Meg And Dia are amazing too.

Random q, how tall are you?


Anonymous said...

First of all - lvoe your outfit. the boots are brilliant! :-)
Second - I've answered to your sweet comment on my blog.
and third the H&M answer:
It's great working there - I love it - the coworkers are so sweet and they're a team as they say. Help each other, aer sweet and just working there is perfect!
Hopefully I'll be hired for good, I'm there right now on a trial, so.. I'm nervous.
As for the interview, don't be afraid to make yourself the best you can be! Everything you're good at, how you're like, and especially focus on (if it's H&M) there how great the atmosphere is. that you think it look like a good work place. I said it, and appearently it's exactly what they wanted to hear :-)
