As a confirmed “sweater girl,” I’m sure you can all imagine that I was absolutely thrilled to jump on the long cardigan bandwagon today, dear readers!!
There were a few oversized, grandpa-style cardis in my wardrobe already, of course…but the perfect long sweater/coat hybrid had so far eluded me. Yes – I’d seen a few pretty ones, but they were waaay too sheer to really provide that true “wrapped in a blanket” coziness I was after. (Something tells me I’m going to need all the help I can get when I visit my sister in New Brunswick next month!!)
And once again, it was Forever 21 that came to my rescue!! I’ll admit that the bricks-and-mortar store can be a bit of a challenge to navigate – those racks are always stuffed! – but since I enjoy the search almost as much as the find, it’s rarely a problem!!
I’m sure my new long cardigan is going to be a layering staple this spring; even though I haven’t had time to experiment very much yet, I can totally imagine it “warming up” not just jeans…but dresses and shorts, too!! 🙂
