A good sweater is like an old friend. Comfortable, soft, and has the perfect fit. And I also love the weather that makes us all want to get cozy and wear a sweater. I have a few favorites that always make me happy to wear. There are also a few new additions to my collection that are dreamy!
Last year I bought cardigans very similar to this while I was pregnant with Oliver. They are lightweight, open, and comfy with leggings or jeans. They can be dressed up with a scarf or pretty necklace and boots. Or it can be dressed down with a tank, jeans and flats. The options are endless. Last year I bought all the colors. This year I want to get the Wine Heather and Black Marl.
Last month I purchased this sweater. It reminds me of the Kent Cardigan by Madewell, but is a more budget friendly option. The color is so pretty. I love pink. But I have been going more minimalistic in my wardrobe and keeping it to basics that will go well together. However, I feel like the Icelandic Mineral is a good neutral that will go with a lot I already have in my closet.
If you follow me on Instagram (@the_strawberrynest) you may have seen my story about the next sweater. I order online with Old Navy. It saves me time. It saves me from having to take my kids in the store. When I order online I can also pick up in store! WINNING! On the day I ordered, my husband came home for lunch and told me to go by myself! He is a keeper. So I ran to Old Navy to pick up my order. And thought, oh I have a few minutes, I am going to try on the sweater I ordered (the one just above) and make sure the color is everything I hoped it would be. And then I saw this other sweater. I knew I had put it in my cart, but couldn’t remember if I had taken it out. So I tried it on and it was love. So I bought it when I picked up my order. My friends, I HAD ordered it as well! So now I had two. Luckily my sister loved it and took one off my hands so I didn’t have to make a return. I love this sweater so much, I might get it in the oatmeal heather as well. Shhhh, don’t tell my husband!
Do you have a favorite sweater? I am still on the hunt for cozy and warm. Let me know!
