It's been a very hot spring so far in Brisbane but the mornings and evenings started out a little cooler, so I decided to add some cardigans to my shorts and tee outfits to keep me warm. Even if I did end up taking both cardigans off by lunchtime Women Fashion Trend 2020
What I wore:
Jacket: Jeanswest Dana drape knit cardi in boysenberry
Necklace: Kmart pink multi-colour beaded necklace
Tee: Spectrum basic v-neck tee in grey marl
Shorts: Jeanswest Parker printed shirred short
Shoes: Converse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC
Why I wore it:
I really like pink and purple together and I like how this purpley-magenta cardigan works so nicely with the neon pink Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag. They were fun accessories with the monochromatic grey tee and black printed shirt too. The cardigan became much too hot halfway round the trail the kids were biking and scooting around so I quickly took it off. Had been perfect in the colder start to the day though.
Nice quiet day with the kids, shorts and tee and Converse was a great outfit, even if the cardigan didn't stay on long.
Last worn: purple cardigan, pink beaded necklace, grey tee, printed shorts, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff neon mini MAC bag.

Tee: Big W mustard v-neck tee
Shorts: Kmart culotte short in navy lemon print
Shoes: Kmart sparkly silver glitter sneakers
Bag: Rebecca Minkoff metallic silver mini MAC
Why I wore it:
This navy cardigan didn't stay on long at all! It had seemed like a nice idea in the morning but I quickly realised during swimming lessons that it was far too hot for it, and left it in the car!
I did like the way the navy cardigan worked so well with the navy printed shorts and the bright mustard tee, just was a much warmer day than I anticipated! I like mustard and navy together, and although the yellow in the print on the shorts is lemon I think the mustard tee paired nice with it and was a fun pop of colour with the navy. I went a little matchy-matchy with my accessories, wearing my metallic silver mini MAC bag and also my glittery silver sneakers.
Last worn: navy cardigan, coin necklace, mustard tee, printed shorts, glitter sneakers, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC.
Other ways to wear: navy cardigan and green jeans, mustard tee worn two ways, printed shorts and pink tee, glitter sneakers and maxi skirt, Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC and band tee.
Perfect for pregnancy: Rebecca Minkoff silver mini MAC in second trimester.
Waterfall Cardigans Under $50:
How You Can Wear It:
In spring and autumn, cardigans are great layers to add for the cooler mornings and evenings and aren't too bulky to pop in a bag if you take them off during the day. You can try wearing your cardigans with printed shorts when you know the day is going to heat up, using the cardigan to add more colour like I did in the first outfit, or matching the print in the shorts like I did in the second outfit.
