Now, this was a very tricky thing to pick out as my sister informed me. There is a fine line in the cardigan world of mom/granny frump cardigan and cute/hip young person cardigan. Finding this balance was a bit of a challenge but thanks to Banana Republic I was able to succeed! Here's what I ended up with.
I am in love with this! It is so soft and is a little more fitted and hip than the "mom" cardigan. I think. Ok, this cardigan leads me to...
#2: Flouncy Tops
Almost all of my tops are cotton casual t-shirts which make me feel and look like a young kid. No joke-I got asked if I was home for Christmas break in December. When I get comments like that I think, "do I really look that young or does the way I dress make me look that young?" Which leads me to wanting to dress a little cuter/older but again, not mommy-frump. Enough rambling. Here...
...is one top that I ended up with. On sale now at the gap. Add these two together and you get my outfit from a few posts ago!
The cardigan with the flouncy top plus maybe some skinny jeans or "Jeggings", if you will are my new favorite. I know that I am about five seasons behind the current fashion trend but I am deciding that I just really don't care. I found something that is comfy and practical and (I think) also a little bit cute!
I'll leave you with some final thoughts on "jeggings"
When T was in town, She and I went to old navy and I wanted to see what this jegging trend was all about. We found some on sale for about six dollars so, of course, we each bought a pair. I came home and told Adam about our find to which he responded, "So, let me get this straight. Hundreds of other people who have much worse taste than you passed up these things and you bought them for six dollars? Maybe there is a reason why they were so cheap." Point taken, Adam, point taken.
