The Tale of a Cardigan

Sunday, Devin left his cardigan at my place. This happens to be an article of clothing I'm quite fond of. It's very comfortable and nice to wear, which brings me to my point...

Monday: sick day. Perfect for pairing with yoga pants and a fitted tee.



Tuesday: casual work day and class. Very studios-looking paired with glasses and a _____ sweater. What kind of sweater is that? The only thing I could think of was "thin".


Wednesday: I think to myself, "well I've worn it the past two days, why not go for a third?" So I do, but this time an edgier look with a long button-up and jeggings.


So, now, it's Wednesday night and I'm still wearing the cardigan and I think "hmm...maybe I can wear this cardigan in a unique way every day this week, like a fun fashion challenge."

 Enter Thursday morning...

Huh...this is just not the look I'm going for today...not with navy cropped pants, boots, and a scarf. It feels (& looks) frumpy.

So as much as I hated to give up on a challenge, even if it was just with myself...all good things must come to an end...


Thursday: When the cardigan is exchanged for a button-up.

In closing, I took way too many pictures of myself this week and put way more thought into what I wore than I ever do. But it was kind of fun capturing the different looks. However, I'm sorry to report I do not plan to share what I wore on Friday...I'm sure this will be very devastating to you all.

The end.

quite a disappointment I'm afraid (not seeing Fridays ensemble that is). As will be returning the sweater if it's anything like the grey sweatshirt I stole from Luke so many years ago...;)

I was wondering if the cardigan will ever go back . . .I have a shirt of Ryan's I stole while we were engaged that I still bum around the house in now and then. The cardigan is cute . . .but I'm wondering if it was the cardigan or who's it was?! : )

this post made me smile.

Well aren't you just too cute! Maybe I should start raiding Chad's closet more often.... :) Hmmm hilarious... I really liked the original Thursday pick, too. Although all the outfits are quite cute and trendy. :)
