I have to admit though, for a long time I unconsciously subscribed to the twinset version of wearing a cardigan. I don't precisely know why... but I'm telling you, if that sucker had buttons down the front I always gravitated towards wearing a matching solid shirt underneath it. But recently I've seen quite a few fashion blogs with a very simple stripe/solid mix with a cardigan. I know, I know, you're thinking - seriously Tea? You didn't think of this by yourself? Are you getting enough sleep? And the answers to those questions are yes, no and no.
But here it is - a lovely boatneck striped tea underneath my new fave boyfriend style button down cardi from the big W. Wearing a funky wrap bead bracelet ups the fun factor a teeny bit, but I felt put together and a teeny bit stylish in this little ensemble. Wearing a belt over a cardigan is a new thing for me, as well and I got to try out one of those fancy skinny belt knot things that all the cool kids do.

So, what do you think? Do you like the belted cardigan look? Or is it all a little too prep-school for you? I like it... you might even see it a little more often!
