So over the weekend, I was with my family celebrating my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary in Des Moines. Yes, 60 years! What an amazing accomplishment. Almost the entire family came into town, including cousins, great aunts and great uncles. I love when everyone gets together! We don't see each other very often, so it's nice to catch up on every one's lives. We're a pretty big family with lots of extended family members, so it's always a party! Anyways, my aunts and adult cousins kept telling me they wanted to see more outfits that they could wear to work, so ladies, this outfit is for YOU! 

When I got this lovely cardigan in the mail from Vanity, I originally imagined it with more casual pieces, like a loose tank, a scarf and a billowy hat. When I saw that my sister brought home this polka-dotted button down, I loved the idea of dressing up the cardigan and mixing up the patterns! Plus the fringe on the ends.. amazing! It definitely adds a little personality and fun to the outfit. 

What are your go-to work pieces? Thanks for reading!
