Sometimes you need a little coffee with your cardigan

(Part 1 of a 3 part inspiration post)

If you haven't figured it out yet - today's post has been inspired by a lovely blogger friend of mine: Louise of Coffee & a Cardigan.

Louise has the most gorgeous doll face, lives in a bavarian village, and dons such a fun, playful, and unique style. She is truly enchanting. I am constantly finding inspiration in the way she puts unexpected pieces together and always comes out looking gorgeous. She is queen of cute patterned socks, cardigans, awesome hats, and lots of color. She can pull off a knit beret like none other.

So of course for my outfit today I just had to sport a knit beret, cardigan, and patterned knee highs:




(Sorry for the blurry photo. It was so frigid out. My poor hubby's hands were frozen purple as he snapped my photos. Thanks Al for your patience and endurance.)



Outfit Details:
Dress: Modcloth (on sale)
Cardigan: Urban Outfitters
Hat: eBay
Necklace: Topshop
Socks: Modcloth
Shoes: Jeffrey Campbell

I know you will love it:)
