Now that fall is in the air, (I think autumn makes her official arrival on the 21st) I’m putting away my summer dresses and transitioning into my cool weather uniform of jeans or leggings and a cardigan.
I’m still in ballet flats, but when the rains come, I’ll switch to riding boots.
Clearly, I love a good cardigan. I’ve worn them since middle school.
My cardigan collection is mostly wool, but I have a one or two in cashmere (thank you, annual Boxing Day Sale!) Lately, though, I’ve added a couple in cotton. It’s a genius move because it allows me to start wearing this beloved staple before it gets really cold.
That’s right–I’ve extended cardigan season! This is big in my little world.
However, as exciting as cotton is, colour is the real game changer!
Black is my preferred cardigan colour, followed closely by charcoal grey. Navy is a distant third.
But…divorce, new job, new town…why not colour???
Today’s duck egg blue was a stretch for me, but I still felt like myself because I had on my comfy Not Your Daughter’s Jeans and my favourite Geox ballet flats.
Is this a fashion turning point for me??? Will I be wearing pullovers by mid-winter?
