Let me introduce you to the granny cardigan.
For the longest time, she and I had a bit of a love-hate relationship. In fact, the granny cardigan didn't really leave my closet all that much and was sadly pushed aside and hardly ever worn. You see the granny cardigan is no miracle-worker. She does not promise to give you perky boobs, a tiny waist, or a feminine silhouette. No girls, she will do none of these things in fact her bulky wool will most likely make you look heavier than you are and her horizontal strips will probably cause your upper body to resemble a brick.
But here's the thing! One day I paired her up with these grey Zara jeans and these black ASOS boots...and I saw her for what she really was, a true beauty and a hidden gem! :) Some of you may not agree, but this big bulky black and grey Topshop cardigan that just might get you mistaken for a homeless person has actually become one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe. And not to mention the fact that she keeps you warm on those cold winter nights! Oh yes! The granny cardigan is not so frumpy after all.
The bag I'm wearing with it is of course one of my staples...the black leather tassel barrel bag from ASOS. The scarf I'm wearing is from Mexx.
And here's what I'm wearing underneath...a black wool turtle-neck with a button detail from the Gap. I do like this, but it's SO loose-fitting and I wish it wasn't. I think their sizing is waaaay too big. How in the world is this sweater a size XS?!
Enough rambling! I need to go figure out what I'm going to do for tomorrow's health/diet/nutrition video and post. I was thinking maybe a healthy veggie salad and homemade dressing but maybe that's too basic...you guys let me know in the comments what you want to see! :) Also, thank you to those of you who could join me on BlogTV last night! It was a lot of fun...if you want to subscribe to my channel to get updates on when I'm going to go live again, click here!
