My personal fashion trend
Sure, my sisters make fun of me. Maybe others make fun of me... I don't know. Maybe no one notices, and that's fine too. I am a fan of cardigans. Yes, I am. You might say I'm even addicted to them.
True story... last year around this time I was about to go on a somewhat "blind" date, and the first thing my sister Caiti says is, "don't wear a cardigan, please!"
What?! What?! What the heck is that supposed to mean?? Turns out other little sister Shannon told her that I wear cardigans all the time. So, sue me! I like cardigans, ok! I admit I felt a little self-conscious for a few days wondering if people around me noticed like my sisters did, that I wore cardigans frequently. That self-consciousness soon passed, and I soon decided to embrace my love of the cardigan.
Friends, we all have issues with what we feel comfortable wearing, don't we? I work in a business/casual work environment, and I feel that a cardigan pulls an outfit together so nicely. Even outside of work, I just appreciate that they can "hide" certain parts of my figure that I don't want to show until I'm many pounds thinner, and plus, they are just plain comfy. Am I wrong to feel this way about a staple in my wardrobe? I think not.
So what if I look like Mr. Rogers. I dunna care! I like 'em, and I will continue wearing them until my dying day!
Take that Caiti & Shan!
Tell me about your wardrobe. Is there a particular item you have plenty of, and choose to wear day in and day out?
