This cardigan was the very last purchase that eeked it’s way into my fall capsule wardrobe. I had planned, I had shopped, I had pulled things out of storage, I had made outfits. Everything was pretty much settled + set.
And then I realized I needed another layer, another long-sleeve, and another bit of color.
And for the sake of money + space (I only had one slot left in my wardrobe), I needed something that could do it all in one.
Enter this cardigan. It’s funny. I hadn’t worn a cardigan in two years or so. I just decided they weren’t for me. But this one got me back on the cardigan train — it was a layering piece, it was long-sleeved, and it was my color. Hooray!
And with that last piece, my wardrobe was complete.
I love that feeling of finishing a wardrobe + knowing I don’t have to worry about the “what if” of shopping for a nice long while + knowing I’ve got a great wardrobe to enjoy.
I’ve got to admit, I didn’t have that fuzzy feeling the first couple of times I made a capsule wardrobe. But … now I do. What about you?
