Barefoot Dreams circle cardigan

travel outfit airport casual style leggings cardigan

I loved reading through all your comments in my Nordstrom Sale reviews post! It gave me a better idea of what types of pieces you guys are interested in (comfy athleisure and work-appropriate items for the win), and I’ll definitely be sharing more reviews on those fronts. If you had left a question about something, I’m having some technical difficulties responding on my last post, so please just let me know again below!

Amongst your comments, one of the most mentioned pieces by far was the Barefoot Dreams cardigan. This brand has an avid following for their oh-so-cozy plush cardigans that “feel like you’re wearing a hug,” in the words of a reader! Their materials are more casual like loungewear, but you can dress it up a bit with jeans and a pretty cami.

For our flight last weekend, I swapped in my trusty Zella live-in leggings and flat loafers, and got the workout of my life sprinting like a madwoman through the Amsterdam airport (the terminal transfer line there is no joke!). Another thing I love about the live-in leggings is that the knees do not stretch out on me, even after a long day of sitting. So many of my other, older leggings have baggy pouches around that area – never again!

Barefoot Dreams cardigans especially make a great gift for busy moms or expecting moms – my friends in those categories basically live in them, plus the Bobeau fleece wrap (last styled on me here). Fit wise, however, many of BD’s styles are oversized and and unfortunately don’t come in petite sizing like Bobeau does. Their cozy chic circle cardigan included in the sale is the only style I’ve tried that wasn’t overwhelming, although some petite ladies may still find this to be too long in size XS/S (note I have the sleeves cuffed up).

A quick note about this satiny cami – it’s a simple but elegant top that’s good for layering. I have another outfit coming showing how I’ve styled this differently in a more refined look. The cream is a little sheer (so wear a nude bra or pasties under), but the other colors don’t have an issue. The straps are adjustable which I always appreciate, and it’s actually machine-washable but I would handwash to prolong the life of the lace trim. I hope some of you were able to grab it after my Instagram post, before sizes dwindled down!

    Thanks for the review! I've been trying so many different kinds of cardigans ranging from $25 from Zara to $100+ from Club Monaco/J.Crew. They are usually hit or miss depending the style even with the same brand. I can't wait to try Barefoot Dreams for the "soft hugging feel"!

    Doh. Might have to get this cardigan now. Is it loose in the sleeves? I had when the arms are too tight — makes it hard to layer.

    Perfect transitional outfit for traveling. It looks great on you!

  • Reply Ariadne Aberin July 17, 2017 at 9:57 pm

    Love the cardigan! I'm always a sucker for a cozy cardigan and will definitely be looking into the Barefoot Dreams one.

    Curious if you tried the Rag and Bone skinny jeans in the dark wash during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I had my eye on it but was not sure about the fit and fabric. Would love to see a review of those!

    Thank you for the posts on the N sale. It's a big help for all the petite girls. I am 5'2"!! I was thinking about going to Amsterdam and Belgium. Can you do a post on what your favorite things to do in Amsterdam? Restaurants , tours , etc.

    I love all your choices, Jean! I am petite like you at 5'2". I would purchase all the items myself (if I have the financial resources), but I am a stay at home mother of 2 with limited shopping money. My favorite out of your picks is the Barefoot Dreams cozy cardigan. I love & live in them during fall & winter seasons!

    I hope to win your giveaway! Thank you for the opportunity. I love your simple yet elegant & classic style as always.

    I’ve been loving your recent neutral color outfits! Especially the comfy and work casual appropriate ones. The lace on the cami looks a bit delicate (from a small picture on the site it looks fuzzy almost). I’d love to read a short review of it.

  • Reply Farah July 19, 2017 at 12:51 pm

    Bought the cardigan! I got lucky with it. I went to the store but they don't have the color I wanted (stone). Definitely buttery soft which made me want it even more. I was shopping online pretty much all day Monday. They were also sold out but I kept checking in. Then voila, XS/S in stone became available again so I snagged one. Yay!

    As a petite gal like yourself, I could use some recs for undergarments to wear camis like this…so make it look so good.
