My Grandad always wore the most amazing sweaters. I remember always thinking when we would go visit him "Does he ever wear the same one?!" it seemed like each day there was a new color, new texture, new shape. He loved his sweaters..and it must run in the family, because I have grown quite a fondness for sweaters as well. I don't mind looking like my upper body has gained 50 pounds when a cozy sweater is involved. The term 'frumpy' and 'bulky' get tossed out the window - and even though over sized sweaters do make me look those words, I could care less. Wouldn't you agree? Don't you have those items in your closet that even though you know they might not be the most flattering..you will never give them up because comfort outweighs style with that particular piece of clothing? I saw this sweater when I was at Super Store with my Dad, and though I have never bought anything from 'Joe Fresh' I thought I would give it a try. It was mega long on me, so I cut off the bottom and sewed it up and made it into a crop sweater. Ta da! Perfection. Love love love it.
I had a lovely lunch today with my friend (hi Sarah!) and was so glad to finally catch up with her. You know those moments when you haven't seen someone in years but when you see them again you almost feel like time stood still and you pick up right where you left off? We had so much fun reminiscing about our teenage rebellion. Im thankful for good friends in my life! Hope you are having a wonderful Thursday. Hugs. xo
