Sweaters are life.
Seriously. I wouldn’t dare brave a Minnesota winter without them. As I’m typing this, I’m wearing one, AND in the next window at my MacBook about to purchase another. Can’t live without them. Cardigans are nice, but I like the allover comfort a good knit sweater provides, and layering can get old for me, right about this time.
Here’s a trick for those of you who love thrifting as much as I do: It might be summer when your out and about, and a gorgeous knit catches your eye. You may not need it yet, but don’t wait until the air is crisp before you snatch it off the rack. For one, it won’t be there when you come back. And two, some of the best deals for sweaters happen when you least expect it. I pretty much buy them all year round.
All my knits are favorites for different reasons. This one is cool because it’s versatile when most sweaters aren’t. It’s thick enough to keep comfortable, but thin enough to tuck without looking bulking up high waist jeans. It also has that muted autumn color I associate with 80s vintage, although this is a recent Top Shop find.
