Cardigan Wednesday - Cabinet Series

Cardi Wednesday is getting switched up. You know Sex and the City? Well I've got that in real life (not the wardrobe, but the over-the-top, four-leaf clover kind of lucky friendship). Being the D.C. geeks that we are, we named ourselves "The Cabinet." We're each other's closest advisors, going on almost ten years now, so it's only fitting. Each member of The Cabinet has her own sense of style and inspires me in individual ways. Since these girls are a consistent in my life, I thought I'd introduce them to you. For the next four Wednesdays, you'll meet one of them and their style (including a cardigan).

Readers, meet Jessica! Jess is from Massachusetts. She's my oldest friend in D.C. We were roommates (we've never had a fight). We send each other pictures of our outfits, just because. Her style is feminine and chic. She has an innate ability to layer and accessorize. She has a great collection of vintage bags (that I love borrowing from) and knows just how to be work-appropriate and fashionable. Oh, and did I mention she's got a set of gams that I would kill for! Here's an outfit I can see Jess wearing to work. I hope she approves!
