Hi, my name is Kelly and I’m addicted to cardigans. I wouldn’t say it’s a problem… because I just love them so much and I literally wear one EVERY DAY. Seriously. Not even joking. Every single day. I’ve been known for wearing cardigans since college – when I tell my friends that I’m going on a first date, one of the first things they ask is “so what cardigan will you be wearing?” They’re just so comfy and aside from being warm, they can really help pull an outfit together.
I do have some cardigans that I keep for certain seasons (like short sleeves for summer and chunky knits for the winter), but the spring and fall get a mixture of all the patterns and knits and colors. I was going through my wardrobe the other day and realized that I’ve had the same cardigans for a loooooooong time. Like, since I moved to Dallas! That’s only 2.5 years, but given that I basically wear the same 5 or 6 cardigans on constant repeat during the week, that’s a lot of wear per item!
I thought that a new season was a good opportunity to replace some of the more worn out items that can’t be repaired or are faded beyond the point where it is appropriate to wear them to work (I don’t want to look sloppy.) I started looking for good cardigans to add to my collection and even bought a few while they were on MAJOR sale! Check out my favorites!
I really try to have a variety when it comes to my sweaters, and I love all of the ones above – I would buy them all if it was in my budget!! I actually did end up buying number 7 – the wrap cardigan from Loft. I just loved the fit and the style and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. I love the ruffle on number 2, and the blazer look of number 3 is to die for (I’ll be keeping an eye on both of those and waiting for a good sale!)
Do you have a go-to item of clothes that you’re known for? Do you have a favorite store for buying cardigans and sweaters? Let me know!!
