the grandpa sweater

 When in doubt (or when cold, or both), throw on a grandpa sweater and rock it with pride. 
Anyone can wear a grandma sweater, but it's the grandPA cardigans that really keep you warm. They are especially nice when they cost $2.00 and have perhaps the tackiest color palette I've ever worn. Somehow I adore this piece despite it's flaws--and that, my friends, is unconditional love. 

Do you have any pieces that you love despite your better judgement? Link it up and show it off!

Grandpa sweaters are one of the best things that have happened to my life. I own quite a few despite my better judgment, and love them even more for that. xx

YES. I have some horrendous ones, but I love them because they're warm and make me feel all bohemian and edgy. LOVE YOURS. Molto classy!

Awesome grandpa cardi!! I really like it over those neutral blacks. My love of biker-ish pieces is something I always tried to repress. Obviously, i'm embrassing it now. Case in point - today's post at http://katiemaye.blogspot.com/2012/02/biker-and-librarian-walk-into-bar.html

What a fabulous cardigan. Grandpa cardigans are the best.

Robyn said...

This is probably my favorite look. I dig the layering, and mild print mixing, and the boots, and pretty much everything.

i actually also love that grandpa sweater!! the colors remind me of the 1950's sports lettermans jacket, especially with the stripes. love how you paired it!

haha def not a tacky color pallet, that's actually what I first like about it, & the loose fit. Hmm my huge orange 25-cent coat on the other hand- def against my better judgement. Beautiful boots too, great thrift finds, luck you!

If that is the tackiest color palette, then i'm the tackiest person. Because I love it.

I also have this theory that you look cute in anything.
