Hello Beauties! Wow what a weekend! We spent the whole Sunday at our son’s Taekwondo Black Belt Exam and Graduation at our city convention center. This affair was so grand & amazing. Not only were we so excited to experience our ten year olds achievement, we also got to watch higher ranks of black belts break huge bricks, and do incredible athletic moves. It was such a fun & impressive event.
I am super excited to bring you Three Ways to Style A Spring Cardigan today. A super lightweight long cardigan is a spring essential that will take you into chilly summer nights when you need a layer over your summer dresses or rompers.
This is my favorite cardigan for spring & summer that I recently purchased. It comes in five beautiful, and versatile colors. It is so light and breezy that you can even easily pack it into a carry on, or a hand bag to take with you to weekend trips. I’ll show you three ways to style it however of course you could wear it over a ton of more outfits.

Let’s start with my Styling a Spring Cardigan guide ladies.
As I’ve mentioned above you can layer this cute and super versatile cardigan over a million different looks. Today I am sharing three ways to style it with white jeans, a dress and denim shorts. You probably have similar styles in your closet that you could use to create these outfits and if not I have great options below. Let’s begin.
OUTFIT 1 – Lightweight Spring Cardigan and Denim Shorts
Style Tip: This is a great everyday look for spring and summer. I paired my denim shorts with this tank top that is one of my most worn basics, and added these comfy sandals with heels to make my casual outfit a bit more special. The gorgeous cardigan in cayenne added a pop of color, and also provided a layer that can be taken off when needed.
For accessories I chose a Kendra Scott necklace and the glossy acrylic hoop earrings I’ve kept from Rocksbox. Rocksbox is my favorite online designer jewelry service that I’ve been a fan of for the past few years. You can try ROCKSBOX FREE for a MONTH with this link without any commitment. It’s worth it ladies. They work as a never ending quality jewelry collection and you get to keep and use the pieces you receive until you decide to order a new set. You also have the option of purchasing the pieces at a discount. LOVE!
I wanted to bring in a bit more color with my bag and chose the gorgeous blue tote (same brand tote option in blue) I kept from my most recent April Stitch Fix Review. The blue in it coordinated with the denim and looked pretty against the stunning bright coral pink of the cardigan.

OUTFIT 2 – Lightweight Cardigan Over a Summer Dress
Style Tip: I wanted to make the second outfit fancier and chose this striped dress that has a nice fit and great mix of colors. I layered it with my cardigan and added these heels in lilac which complemented the romantic look of the dress.
As this look is quite colorful I chose this neutral brown bag (STAUD’s brown leather version of the cult favorite transparent bag) to balance it out as well as gold pieces to bring in a touch of sparkle, once again kept from Rocksbox.

Love this beautiful bag. I think it is such a modern piece that is also timeless with its rich material and universally easy to combine color.

The All in Favor Isabella dress has a flattering wrap style and darling details such as the ruffles in the hem. Adorable!
OUTFIT 3 – Lightweight Cardigan Over White Jeans
Style Tip: White denim skinnies are a spring uniform for me and I can’t recommend adding a good pair of white jeans to your closet enough. (if you don’t already have them of course) They are so easy to pair with a variety of colors, and look crisp with many different styles.
For this look I combined my skinny white crop jeans with a colorful, eye catching top (similar to this one) and these neutral and comfy sandals I love. They are the best with adjustable ankle straps and easy to walk on heels. The pink coral cardigan popped against the print & colors of my top.
Once again I wanted to weave in lilac, my favorite spring color into my look and this time did just that by styling my outfit with this Kate Spade bag in the dreamiest shade of light purple.
