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.
