So it has been a while I know. I have been quite the micro-blogger lately on Instagram. I didn’t quite know what that was until @blogwithkim shared that concept one day. Anyway, I wanted to take the time to brag on my newest Goodwill find. A cozy, wrap cardigan that is sure to be in heavy rotation this season. When the weather people hinted that cooler weather was coming, I headed right to my happy place, my local Triad Goodwill. When I tell you that they have an abundance of sweaters, jackets and everything you need to stay warm, I am not over exaggerating. This lovely cardigan caught my eye because of the price, color, style and the thickness of it.
I paired this “3.59 BCBSGeneration cardigan with jeans, a tank and some booties. I am a girly, girl so I added a pearl brooch to the shawl neckline just to have some bling.
Plus I think I am slightly addicted to cardigans. For various reasons but I will name just a few:
*They can be worn in every season.
*They protect you for the sub-artic cold of your work air conditioner, that comes on when it’s cold instead of when it is hot.
*They are versatile and universally flattering if worn correctly.
*They are super comfy.
*They keep you looking “put together” (I hate when people say that) But basically gives you a more polished and complete look (like a blazer, but that is for another post).
Find sweaters and cardigans in colors that enhance your beautiful skin and that will be easy to pair with other things in your closet. I was going to link some retail cardigans for you all to chase down but then I said nah, I am challenging them to go thrifting. Save some of those coins for travel or to pay back student loans (I have a slew of them, HELP). Many people share with me that it’s hard for them to have a successful thrifting adventure. That is probably because you are trying to focus on the entire store on your first visit. That can be quite overwhelming. So head straight to the sweaters. Most places have them sorted by color and some even by size. Whether for work, casual wear, or date night, I am convinced that you will find something. Every piece will be unique which is what I absolutely love.
Fall is the time in which couples get all cute and cozy and take lubby dubby pics and stuff. Fireplaces start burning and people start confessing their love for one another. I think it is awesome. I love, love. Even when the kind of love that you desire isn’t quite there yet, it still feels amazing to know that you have friends and family who love and adore you. That unconditional love that no matter what you have done, they still love you despite all that. This Fall season, fall in love with yourself. That is the best love that you can have. When you have that kind of love, it is easy for others around you to love you. Even when they don’t you’re OK because you have that self love that can’t be taken away.
Thanks for stopping by. Share your sweater/cardigan thrift find with me on IG. I can’t wait to see what you find.
