Visible Monday: One of my favorite cardigans

OK, I'm pretty new to this whole Outfit of the Day thing, so bear with me!

Several months ago, I entered a blog give-away at lovely AmandaBeth, and WON! My prize? This black cardigan from Fashion to Figure.

I love this cardigan. The ways to wear it are pretty much endless; it's comfortable and flattering, and has lovely detailing that didn't show up very well in my pictures.

On this occasion, I paired it with a long back skirt, a black tank and a pink scarf.

Cardigan from Fashion to Figure
Black tank from Gordman's
Skirt, Notations via Gordman's
Fishnet hose from Wal-Mart
Peep-toe kitten-heel shoes from Sears, a few years ago
Scarf given by my nephew Benjamin, bought on a missions trip to Malaysia

Had to show you the pretty detailing on the back!

I decided to experiment with the half-up braid look from Kate at The Small Things. Here's the tutorial.

Closer view of the pretty scarf. Yes, I took it in my car!

So, the blog that has brought me into the whole Outfit of the Day thing is Not Dead Yet Style, and I'm participating in Visible Monday!

Wow! For someone new to the OOTD phenom, you're catching on very quickly. That pink really livens up the black here -- surprising how effective it is.

I love black and pink together. Your sweater is just beautiful. It was pretty from the front, but once you showed the back, Wow!
You ought to use this same outfit to link up to Tammy at SilverStyle's Scarf link up.

Love the shot of pink with the black. I really like the little braids and wish (kinda) that I still had hair long enough to put in braids.
