For the longest time I avoided cardigans that weren’t short, and fitted. My idea of something different was same cardigan, new color. I actually own six or seven of this cardigan, no joke. It’s still a favorite. But then I discovered a love of long cardigans. First of all, they’re usually much warmer which is important when you’re a freeze baby. Aaaand they can totally save a too short dress which is important when the majority of dresses made in 2017 are too short for your frame! This dress is fine when I’m standing up straight but basically if I move at all you’re guaranteed to see some booty! Target claims this cardigan is a robe for lounging around the house in but I say it’s perfect for saving short dress and making them into the coziest outfit ever!

outfit photos are v. serious business, obviously.

A long cardigan is such a good idea! There are quite a few dresses I own but am constantly wondering if my butt is showing anytime I move when I wear them.

Hi there, long time follower here and I love your blog. I was just thinking about a couple of blog posts I’d love to see for you (if your ever wondering about ideas).

1.) I love your posts about stash and Digit. Would you be interested in doing something with them a little more in depth? Maybe talking about what motivates you to save and what you might think is important when it comes to living your best life (as far as budgeting and long term savings). I’d also love to hear if you have any tips on different types of insurance you suggest, especially for us thinking about getting out of the 9-5 and getting non-work related healthcare.

I just think it would be an awesomely strong post coming from such an independent woman and I know I’d love to hear your input on that sort of stuff.

2. On a much lighter note, I think it would be cool to see an amazon fashion post. The holidays are coming up and you find the BEST things on there. I never knew it was possible!

Thank you so much for what you do, it always brightens up my day!!
