Well, you read that title right! Style change!! Two things that usually don’t go together. But don’t worry, I am not changing my style to morbid or anything. I wanted to chat with you on how I have added a piece to my wardrobe that I would have never worn a few years ago! So let’s have a girl’s chat just like girlfriends….okay?
Do you normally wear cardigans? A few years ago, I wouldn’t be caught DEAD in a cardigan, even to save my life! I did have them in my wardrobe when I was a teacher for a year, but that pretty much goes with the territory!! But, I never fell in love with them, if you know what I am saying!!
Growing up, my mom was a teacher and still is involved in a school district but on the administration side. She always stocked her closet with cardigans and jackets. Still does actually. Schools are usually cold, and you dress more conservative dealing with kids all day. So, that made sense to me. But for everyday style and fashion, cardigans were not my thing. My mom would always ask me when I would leave the house, do you want a light jacket or a cardigan in case you are cold later? And my response would be, “No, Mom!! I will be fine” (in my annoyed voice I’m sure)
I really don’t know what changed for me???!! I don’t know if I am feeling more confident in my own skin, been through some life and grew up and learned hard lessons, trust me on that!! They say, when you get into your 30’s, you become more confident about who you are and start to care less about what people say or think! Which is totally true and uplifting. I hear your 40’s are even better, but lets slow the roll on that one ;).
I have slowly started to add in one cardigan at a time and now I feel I am constantly on the hunt for the perfect most versatile one!! Who I am???? LOL
Here is a picture of one of most favorite cardigans I recently picked up on sale. I find myself wearing this ALL THE TIME! I fell in love with the length. It covers your backside if you know what I mean 😉
Here are a few more pictures of me in some cardigans that I have added to my everyday wardrobe,
See what I mean about me adding in cardigans in my closet. Who am I turning into? My Mother???? Ha, just kidding!! We are very similar but different styles at times. And she does shop for me and bring me clothes all the time which is AWESOME!!
I think my style has changed for the better! And, I am a lot warmer these days! 😉
Here are some cardigans that I have my eye on in case you are left with wanting more!!!
And I just finished watching the Olympics, and Shaun White is a beast! Anyone else cry when he started to cry after he won the gold medal?? Tears, just streaming down over here!
