December is definitely the month when I get the most wear out of the red section of my color-coded closet. I’ve had this preppy cardigan since I first discovered my love for all things J. Crew some decades ago, and every year, its classic cut and festive hue continue to be an effortless embellishment to any fall or winter outfit. I actually own this same style in 6 (unfortunately not an exaggeration) different colors. While it looks adorable as a regular open cardigan, the over-the-shoulder sweater look is a stylistic favorite of mine, since it adds a cute scholarly feel to any outfit and was trademarked by one of my ultimate style icons, the fabulously classy Jackie O.
On this particular occasion, I paired my staple J. Crew red cardigan sweater with this insane steal of a work dress I found at TJ Maxx, bold crimson lips, and red patent leather pumps. Photography is, as usual, courtesy of the amazing Heather at HBJ Photography. I’ve also listed all outfit details for y’all at the bottom of this post.

Who’s excited for Christmas?! This girl put up her Christmas tree this past weekend, and I always forget that its holiday luster instantly turns me back into a 7-year-old. BRB while I watch every Christmas movie ever made and drink a family-sized pitcher of eggnog.
Lovely outfit! And I recognize the location of your photo shoot! Rollin’s College, Right? I was just there over Thanksgiving!
Loving the pops of red with the heels and your cardigan – so pretty <3
Putting up the Christmas tree really adds so much Christmas spirit. This is such a lovely look, for the holidays or any time of year. I love your classic, chic style!
