A couple of weeks ago I shared a review of the lovely Mackenzie Tartan Cinch Dress from the new Outlander collection by Her Universe.  I had a wonderful time frolicking in the wood for that moody shoot.  Her Universe was kind enough to also send me the cardigan from that collection, so I went back to the woods to take some more photos.

I bought the Tartan Buckle Skirt from the same collection, so be on the lookout for that post review coming soon.  Today's post focuses on the Outlander Thistle Flyaway Cardigan.  With the greens of rolling Scottish hills and the purples of Scottish heather and thistle as my muse, I put together this 'light academia' ensemble for another frolic amongst the trees.

Before we get started, I am 5'9", typically wear a 22/24, wear a 40B bra, a size 11 wide shoe, and my measurements are 52/49/58.

I know the entirety of the collection has been selling out fast!  So first things first, this cardigan is still available on Hot Topic's website in plus sizes 0, 1, 3, 4, and 5.  That translates to sizes 12, 14/16, 22/24, 24/26, and 26/28, in case you are unfamiliar with their sizing.  Generally speaking, I feel that Her Universe and Hot Topic collections both run a tad bit small, or junior, in sizing, so I tend to size up for these brands.

As with the Tartan Cinch Dress, I did size up to a 4 (24/26) in the dress and Thistle Flyaway Cardigan.  They both provide a good fit without anything being too tight or fitted.  I do think I could size down in both and still be fine, but I think sizing down in the cardigan might just make the arms a bit tighter.  With the size 4, I can wear other tops underneath comfortably and with no issue.

While the cardigan has a more lightweight feel, it is extremely cozy and will definitely keep you warm.  The texture is soft and plush knitted sweater material.  I love the way it drapes in front and, of course, the pockets are very helpful and practical.

As you can see, the background color is a grey/olive shade with dark green thistles all over.  The left shoulder has a beautifully embroidered stag with the Clan Fraser motto, "Je Suis Prest", underneath.  I really appreciate the design and the practicality of this one.  It's so easy to throw on over jeans and a tee for a cute casual look.  What do you think?

In styling this look, I was inspired by the greens and purples of Scotland itself.  I thought it was a great time to break out the purple jeans, a great thrifted find at Curvy Chic Closet a couple years ago.  Keeping with the purple, I added a plaid top and shiny headband, but tied in the green with an olive plaid bootie.  I really love how it came together!  I was comfortable and cozy in the chilly winter air.
