I have a small problem – when stores start sending e-mails about holiday sales (ostensibly for buying gifts for other people), I end up shopping for myself. I actually did a major unsubscribe purge earlier this year, but there are a select few stores where I do want to know when sales are happening.
As a result, I was browsing the Nordstrom site last week and came across this sweater, and I knew immediately that I had to have it. I’m always looking for things to wear that will keep me warm, but that aren’t so bulky or tight that it’s hard for me to move. It seems like such a little thing, but for me, even the switch from short sleeves to long sleeves means that it’s harder for me to move. And since I can’t take jackets/sweaters on and off, once I put something on, it’s on for the day. So I need something warm, but not stifling when I’m inside.
This sweater fits all of my criteria, and as an added bonus, it’s SO comfy and cute! I wore it with a simple t-shirt dress (this one, from Amazon, that I have in 5+ colors), but it could just as easily be worn with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. And seriously, I cannot express how comfortable it is! It genuinely feels like wearing a blanket (but a cute one!). I know I’ll be wearing this A LOT in the coming months!
