Rome Street Style: Maxi Cardigan, High Waist Jeans & Over-the-Knee Boots

By Monday, January 30, 2017 10

Meagan Brandon fashion blogger shows how to wear a maxi cardigan, long cardigan with over the knee boots outfitHello from Virginia! After an extremely long journey, we finally made it home on Friday evening. Between an hour car ride from our apartment to the airport in Rome, an hour and a half flight to Munich followed by a nine-hour flight from Munich to Virginia, and finally an hour and a half car ride from the airport to my parents’ house, I know our kitties were extremely glad to be released from their carriers! It really amazes me how well they can handle travel, but little do they know they have another adventure ahead of them when we leave for Jordan in a few months! In the meantime, they’re getting used to living in my parents’ house with their cat (there’s been plenty of hissing and growling but thankfully no fights yet). My hubby and I have been a little jet-lagged the past few days but other than that we’re pretty much settled and happy to be home for the next few months. Meagan Brandon long gray maxi cardigan with Gucci belt and Stuart Weitzman over the knee boots, how to wear duster cardiganThis street-style shoot was the last one we did in Rome and I have to say I’ll definitely miss the amazing backgrounds Italy offered for fashion photography. I can’t believe this was only a week ago because it feels like so much longer. It’s hard to explain but it always feels strange straddling two (extremely different) worlds whenever we travel overseas.long gray maxi cardigan with black turtleneck, black Gucci belt and over the knee bootsHands-down the single type of clothing I’ve collected the most of during fall and winter has been cardigans. I can never seem to have enough, and don’t ask me to justify the fact that I probably have at least five gray styles! I’ve actually had this one in my closet for months but never found the time to bring it out until now. long maxi cardigan with black turtleneck, Gucci belt and over-the-knee boots, Gucci black suede Dionysus bagMeagan Brandon fashion blogger in long maxi cardigan with turtleneck and Stuart Weitzman over the knee bootsThis robe-style cardigan is extremely oversized, so I kept my look streamlined with high waist jeans and over-the-knee boots. Maxi-length cardigans can definitely overwhelm petite frames, so I wouldn’t recommend wearing them with flats (but if you’re a lucky girl who happens to be very tall, go for it!)long gray cardigan with Gucci belt, high waist jeans and Stuart Weitzman Highland over-the-knee boots, how to wear a maxi cardiganI hope you all had a wonderful weekend and your Monday is off to a great start!

    Love this look! I am copying it ASAP. I recently cleaned out my closet and I had about 73 cardigans. About 47 of which were grey! LOL! OK, I exaggerate….but close. Your kitties are brave. Mine freak out on the 12 minute ride to the vet. Can’t wait to see your stateside looks the next few months.
