And then I thought to myself,
"WAIT, self! What about the pink sweater set you had in college?"
And in the spirit of full disclosure,
I also have this exact set in cream and lavendar.
I'm so happy I didn't get rid of this one 2 years ago when I did a massive closet clean out.
I actually got rid of 10 sweater sets that weekend!
You are probably worried that I didn't have enough sweater sets/cardigans left after the purging.
Well, you'd be wrong.
I would tell you how many I still had, but I'm afraid you might not want to be my friend anymore... or that you might tell my hubby...or that you might have me committed to some sort of weird cardigan-obsessed mental hospital.
The number is something that only a few close friends know.
And I have "dirt" on them too,
so they know better than to share my number. ;)
Sure, this particular pink cardigan was a couple of inches shorter than I would have liked it to be, but in the words of Tim Gunn, this was a "make it work" moment.
