Cardigan, and something blue

by Meg Keene, CEO & Editor-In-Chief

Here is one more for the “I’m going to need something to keep me warm in the Bay Area in August” file. I like how a cardigan takes the formality of a wedding dress down a notch. Plus, you can re-wear your bridal cardigan, which is neat and sentimental.
I’m probably going to do the ‘something blue’ thing, which is oddly traditional of me, but I like its quaintness. I figure it might as well be my sweater/shrug/shawl and shoes.

    Many years later, I’d like to say my mother’s original 1955 beaded cardigan will be my something old (and yes, I’m old enough to have a mother almost married by 1955). I also like the idea of something that will definitely be worn again.
