OOTD: Cardigans!




Cardigan from Banana Republic in XS
BCX Dress from Macy's in 3
Steve Madden Caryssa Platform Pumps in Grey Multi size 5.5
Necklace and Earrings from The Limited


I decided to ignore the weather for today and wear my cardigan anyways.  I had bought this cardigan at Banana Republic a few weeks ago when they had a 30% off Family & Friends event and it was on sale for $35.  I love the piping that wraps all the way around the front and I feel like it adds a modern twist to the traditional grandpa cardigan.  I paired it with a sleeveless dress from Macy's in their Junior's BCX line.  I've actually been really impressed with the BCX line at Macy's as I feel that the styles are very work appropriate while still being very chic and trendy.  I was also amazed that a size 3 fit me!  I believe it's the smallest size that they carry, and it certainly does run small!

Either way, I made the possible mistake of pairing a taupe on taupe.  In my opinion, I felt that these taupe colors were different enough that it still paired up nicely.  Adding a waist belt was the finishing touch as it gave the layering the shape that it needed to not look like a sack on me.

For my petite readers out there, the BR cardigan in XS did run a bit big as it was not a petite size.  I ended up rolling up the sleeves a bit, but the fabric was thin enough that it didn't look too bad.






P.S. It did get hot today and I was very almost regretting adding this cardigan...  But I was stubborn about wanting to sport my cardigan for fall that I just grinned and beared it.  ^_^

  4. Did not thought about this until now :)Yacon Syrup Extract prevents
    the pancreatic from splitting down starch into maltose and dextrin. It also ends the
    production of alpha-amylase vitamins in the entire
    body. Medical professionals usually suggest this to their
    subjects who are diabetic patients because the Yacon Syrup stops the manufacturing of alpha-glucosidase based in the colon from switching disaccharides and starches into blood sugar.

    Yacon Syrup benefits also prevents sugars and carbohydrates from turning into excess body fat by
    blocking the production of citrate lyase. Some doctors use Garcinia as a laxative to help with obstipation or other wellness reasons such as fat reduction, a stress reliever, depression, changes in mood and
    as a tool to having a quality night nap.
