Hello! While I was reading a lot of posts last week about New York's Fashion Week, I kept coming across blogger's stating how difficult it was to be fashionable when the weather is so cold. I felt like commenting on each and every one 'Welcome to my world!' but I didn't. I have about fifty pairs of the cutest little flats and heels I'd love to wear just hanging out in the guest room, but when I step outside and my foot sinks into six inches of snow, it's just not possible. So I go in and visit my little shoes once in awhile just to say 'Hello' and I tell them hopefully it won't be too much longer till I can wear them again. Yes, my fellow Fashionistas, winter is a challenge to dress for. One thing I always struggle with is sweaters. I love their warmth, but I hate the bulk. I always feel that they add ten pounds to my figure the minute I put them on. But some days are just so bitter cold, a sweater is a must, and this was one of those days!
I actually got rid of a lot of my pullover sweaters because I didn't enjoy wearing them for the reason stated above, and also because if I got too warm, I couldn't just take them off easily. So I really have been investing more and more in cardigans the past couple of years. But, as always, when the weather got cold, I missed my pullovers and I regretted tossing them. So when JCP had their after Christmas door buster sales, I ended up buying three of them: all under $10.00!!!! Oh I how love JCP! The sales are amazing! You can see one of the other sweaters I bought HERE. I wore it on our outdoor adventure to Perrot State Park.
I bought the sweater I'm wearing in this post for several reasons. It was a classic cable knit sweater that never goes out of style, it was a color that could easily go with anything in my wardrobe, and, I have been looking FOREVER for a sweater to go with my ankle length cords that I bought years ago at T.J. Maxx. The sweater has tiny little copper flecks of color that are the exact same shade as my cords, so it matches them perfectly. JCP still has this sweater on-line and it's on clearance. Not as cheap as I got it, but it's still available HERE.
Have a great day! Amy
