grandpa cardigan

I finally found my perfect grandpa cardigan! I absolutely love my oversized oatmeal one from Vera by Vera Wang (I mean, I found it for $4, it's soft, it's large... basically my idea of heaven) but I was just wearing it too much. So when my mom was here, one of our main shopping missions was to find me another cardigan to fill out  my collection - but they all had wool! And we all know my delicate skin just can't handle wool (much as I wish it could). But Colleen and I were out wandering M Street this afternoon and popped into H&M where voila, there it was! Perfection in the form of a cardigan - black, oversized, yarn that was just the perfect chunkiness, brown buttons, elbow patches, and no wool!

I would tell you more but I am on a mission to go to bed before midnight which means I have... 5 minutes to put this post up! Just wanted to say hello and share my find with you, a longer life update will hopefully come tomorrow. Have a good night :)
