Autumn is my favorite time of year. I love the rich colors and cool weather. It is too chilly for shorts, but too warm for coats. Truthfully, cardigans are a yearround garment. I have lightweight ones for Spring. From September to November, I prefer loose fitting cardigans without buttons. Depending on the material, it feels like I am walking around in a throw blanket. Plus, there is plenty of room for cozy cuddles. You can’t really outgrow a cardigan. It comes down to the sleeves. If there too tight, it might be time to donate.
Last year, I bought a Time and True Women’s Open Front Cardigan At the time, the beige cardigan was $12, which is average for this type of garment. I love it because it doesn’t feel as heavy as it looks. Last year, I used it to dress up leggings and boots. It was thick enough to keep my upper body warm in basic tank tops or short sleeve shirts. When it got too cold to wear outside, I wore at home. Sadly, this cardigan did not come with pockets. All in all, I got my monies worth. It isn’t my only go to cardigan.
For Breezey warm fall days, I wear my Shannon Ford Sleeveless Cardigan Vest. Honestly, I don’t remember how much this vest cost. I bought three years ago at Burlington Coat Factory. Since, Burlington Coat Factory is known for affordable designer clothes, I probably snagged it for a good deal. Although my cardigan vest has pockets, they aren’t made to hold heavy items like a phone or wallet. Typically, I wear sleeveless shirts and long sleeves with this vest. Personally, I don’t like how it looks with short sleeves shirts. Still, the color pallete makes it more versatile with my wardrobe than the beige long sleeve cardigan.
For now, It is too soon to wear either cardigan. I look forward to adding them to the rotation. In the meantime, I’ll stick to brewing my Dunkin’ Pumpkin Spice coffee in my Hamilton Beach FlexBrew.
