What I Wore: Cozy and Quick

Working my way through all my lovely picks in my Gwynnie Bee virtual closet!  It is still off and on chilly here in the PNW (mostly chilly lately, even when there is sun), so I was happy this cardigan arrived when it did.

This is the first item from Sejour that I have tried.  This cardigan is a 3X.  I usually size down when trying on or purchasing cardigans because they tend to stretch out a bit as you wear them.  This is an "open front" cardigan, so there are no buttons.  The material was not super soft, but not too scratchy either.  I feel that is important to note because the silver threads are the sparkly kind that tend to be really itchy.

I enjoyed that the sleeves weren't full, but longer than 3/4 length.  The length of the cardigan was way longer than I realized, but I actually really liked it that way.  Overall, the fit was great; it is a cozy sweater; and I like the front pockets.

I kept the look casual for errand-running with jeggings, tall boots, and a simple black t-shirt.  What do you think?

  1. Cute as always...it's already too hot here for a heavy cardigan. (Although they say it's going to be chilly later in the week, and the weather is supposed to be birthday-perfect.) Are those jeggings actually fitted all the way down to the ankle? And do they stay tucked in when you're out running around? For reference, I tried on those french terry "jeggings" from LB, and they are baggy in the calf & ankle. I really wanted the tie-dye pair on clearance, too.

  2. Thank you, lady! It is going to start getting hot for at least a week and a half here starting Thursday. I think my heavier cardigan days are behind me. I am hoping for birthday perfect weather. We are having friends over for a BBQ and karaoke/Cards Against Humanity/ Rock Band, etc.


    I saw some tie-dye capris at LB when I was in there on Saturday. They were cute, but I didn't try them on. I was trying to stay focused on the list of things I was looking for. lol


    These jeggings are fitted all the way down. It takes me a few minutes to shimmy into them. They are tight. I bought a 26 even though they were VERY tight, thinking they would stretch a lot (because that is what most jeans do). I have worn these about 3 times and they haven't stretched yet. I probably should have gotten the 28 so I can breathe better in them. lol They also seem to stay well tucked in when I am out and about. I haven't had any "baggy knee" issues with wearing them with boots. I will get a couple pictures of me in them without the boots so you can see the fit of the legs.

  3. PS - These jeggings are on sale on Torrid right now. I'll shimmy into them today and get some photos for you.
