Cardigans are something I live in year round and this one is no exception. I love the longer length on it – pairing it with heels actually gives the illusion of being taller! This cardigan was the perfect layering piece to create an all neutral look. Simply add some different textures and lengths to create a visually interesting look while keeping the color palette neutral. An easy look to wear day or night!

How to read the symbols on your clothing tags + FREE printable!

How to read the care symbols on your clothing tags (+free printable) | see all the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Pink silk blouse {this season’s} // Lace peplum top {under $30 with code MUSTSHOP} // Bow sweater

 

You just bought a new, coveted piece to add to your closet. You put new said item in the wash. Raise your hand if you’ve ever washed something in the laundry and once you pull it out find that it’s not the same shape or size anymore? I’ve been guilty of shrinking a sweater (or two) in my day! Sometimes, the directions for care are written on the tag but sometimes, they’re not and you’re left with only the laundry symbols to decipher. What exactly does that circle or square or triangle mean?

Today’s clothing is made from so many different materials or combinations of, that it’s hard to have a one-size-fits-all approach to the care. When I buy something, I want it to last so I can get the most wear out of it so it only makes sense to understand the care instructions.

I’ve gotten tired of having items no longer fitting properly due to laundering mishaps that I did some research and compiled a guide of how to read laundry symbols including: wash, dry, iron, and dry clean. Hopefully, this guide helps answer all your questions about those pesky symbols and you’re able to care for your clothes properly.

Feel free to pin the image below for reference, or if you’d like to print it out to hang in your laundry area, I’ve included a link below (can be as big as 16″x20″).

As I’ve refined my sweater collection over the years, I seem to vie more for the muted but classic colors. This particular turtleneck sweater is especially soft and will help keep me warm during the winter months to come. One detail I love is the subtle vertical stripes which makes it a visually interesting piece. Pairing yellow and grey together is a never fail in my book and this juxtaposition of vertical and horizontal stripes is a winning combination. To finish off the look, I paired it with this necklace and matching grey boots.


SHOP THE LOOK:

Grey side zippered turtleneck sweater (similar style here & here {only $35 – 5 colors available!})

Yellow stripe tee (similar style here & here {clearance, under $7.50!})

Chevron pendant necklace (similar style here & here)

Skinny jeans (worn the investment – holds its stretch well!) (similar style here {under $60} & here {under $40})

Grey suede ankle boots (mine are last season – they’ve held up well!) (similar style here (love this lighter grey option) & here)

To me, one of the best things about fashion is mixing and matching, repurposing, and creating completely different looks with just a few switches. Case in point: this olive piece is actually a dress that I worn as a coat. I love the varying heights that it creates over the stripe dress. Bonus: it gives me a chance to extend the wear of my shirt dress into to the cooler weather.

Green tie-waist dress (worn as a coat) (similar style here {under $30} & here)

Stripe shirt dress – WhoWhatWear x Target (similar style here {under $27 with code MAINEVENT16} & here)

Grey d’orsay heels {love this suede version under $140} (similar style here & here)

I can’t believe that it’s already the end of August. Since the summer weather doesn’t actually hit San Francisco until early September, I’ll still be getting plenty of wear from this cute top. I love the blue stripes and the bow detail adds a bit of a feminine flair. I paired this with some ankle crop pants but could easily see myself wearing it with jeans and tennis shoes for a more laid back look.
