long cardigan + thrifted head to toe

tan cardigan, grey pants and snakeskin heels - Thrifting Diva Long cardigans can sometimes be a little challenging to style.  However, when I found this tan, light weight cardigan in the racks of my favorite consignment shop in San Diego, Buffalo Exchange, I was determined to figure out how to rock this piece in the spring.  I especially love that it goes all the way down to my ankles.  For me, the length makes this cardigan totally stand out.

    1. Naomi,
      Thank you! I was way too happy when I saw it on the rack. Like, why would someone give this up, and more importantly, why hadn’t someone else snatched it up. lol.

    1. Ada,
      Thank you! Definitely check out your nearest thrift stores to see if you can find a long cardigan. Or, I am sure there are a ton on clearance now the seasons are switching over.
