When you sing this song, use cardigan instead of Saturday. C-A-R-D-I-G-A-N NIGHT!
“We have a piper down. I repeat we have a piper down.”
Sorry, I could quote this movie all day long.
Back to my point.
We are back to 100 degree weather this week in North Texas, but I will not let it deter my excitement for the coming of fall. This is a time of year when I dream of pumpkin spice lattes and cardigans. Oh my lovely cardigans.
Unfortunately I have let my vast collection dwindle down to nothing. I blame having babies, and letting my husband do my laundry. Anywhoo… I am eager to replenish my cardigan collection, and I have started perusing the internet to find the best deals. I have found that on average, the deals are much better on the computer than they are in the stores.
That lucky cardigan has to have a few qualities about it. Not just any ole cardigan will do. It needs color, pizzazz, maybe something ornamental. A cardigan is my staple of fall clothing. I wear them with my favorite Ramones t-shirt and yoga pants people.
Here are some that I have found recently.
I like the stripes, and that it has a zipper. I am always losing buttons on everything I own.
This one is bright and peacock blue. That is really all that needs to be said.
Stipes, stripes, and more lovely stripes. Plus, it looks like a little ole grandpa would wear it. I love little ole grandpas.
They must really stop with the stripes, I do not think I can take much more.
This one is just cool. It could be dressed up or down.
Oh are there so many more cardigans I could show you, but alas, I will not. You will have to look on your own.
“Look at the size of that boy’s head. It’s like an orange on a stick.”
I really wish you could here me say these quotes with my best Shrek accent.
Ok, back to the cardigan. I was looking for inspiration on Pinterest, and came upon something great. How to turn old sweaters into cardigans. Since I wear more cardigans than regular pull over sweaters, I thought I would give it a look. I found a great tutorial here.
Guess what, I have a few striped GAP sweaters circa early 2000s that are screaming for a redo! I am thinking I am going to use fabric and ribbon, and maybe even add a zipper. The possibilities are endless. I may need to visit the Gooodwill for some sweaters if I like how everything turns out.
Oooohh, this could be a great idea for a Christmas gift.
I leave you this fine Monday with a few things that are on my mind.
- How is it that one man and three girls can totally destroy a house in less than two days?
- I really need to get my three year old potty trained.
- When did I get a muffin top?
- Muffin top is a really horrible word.
