In honor of finding my new favorite cardigan, this gave me an idea for a blog post inspired by my new found love! Houston has been particularly cold this year, which I actually don’t mind. The past two winters we have had have been very mild and haven’t gotten much use out of any of my sweaters. This year, it feels like I can’t keep up with how many I actually need. That or my office is just way too cold! That is why I love a good cardigan and makes the perfect desk chair accessory.
Not only is it the perfect addition to your work wardrobe, I sit here typing this blog post wearing this very same cardigan from Madewell as we speak! I love this particular cardigan because the hem is long and is a lot warmer than a sweater that just sits at my waist. I also have been on the hunt for a basic tan cardigan and this was just the one I was looking for. It comes in many different colors and will have to splurge and add another to my closet. Cardigans are always what I pack when I travel. I even have a black Splendid cardigan from high school that I still take on trips with me! I will probably need to retire it soon. After all, it has almost been 10 years. Yikes. As much as I love fashion items and to be on trend, it is important to have basics like this in your closet as well.
Cardigans have always remained a staple in my closet. Whenever I go out to dinner and know it will be cold in the restaurant, then you will be sure to find me and that cardigan in tow! They are great airplane companions and I always bring a big purse to carry on and throw it in when I’m not wearing it. Honestly, they are just great because a true grandpa cardigan doesn’t go out of style, Just like my cardigan, I can’t get enough of my cape coat this season. If you are on the hunt for a good cape coat, be sure to check out my post My Favorite 10 Christmas Traditions. I have picked out several styles of cardigans that I have had my eye on below for you to shop! Christmas is almost here and one would make the perfect piece to wear on Christmas Day or give to a loved one!
