Recently, some girlfriends staged a cardigan intervention. Let it be known that one of my girlfriends is spreading a nasty rumor that I have 30 cardigans. NOT true. I had 27 at last count. Just to be clear, I consider any sweater with an open front a cardigan. So yes, I have the button-up cardigans from Lands’ End, but I also have some sassy flowy cardigans
from Lands’ End.
Anyhoo, in light of our recent conversation, I decided maybe I should break out of my jeans habit. I have ALWAYS worn jeans. When I feel like dressing up I wear khakis.
And a cardigan. I broke out of my comfort zone and made two significant purchases: jeggings and black leggings. For those of you who are not in the know jeggings are jean-leggings.
Jeggings = good. Jorts = bad.
I had a little fashion show for my Happy Hour neighbor, who is quite the fashionista. And by fashionista, I mean she hardly ever wears jeans. She gave me some pointers on how to wear my jeggings (with boots because they’re a tad short) and my leggings (with either boots or flats.) Yesterday I got all crazy and wore my black leggings with a long cable cardigan. Tres cute, at least from the front. I have no idea about the back, so perhaps I should just issue a blanket apology to anyone who may have found themselves unwittingly walking behind me.
I looked JUST like Audrey Hepburn!
If Audrey Hepburn bought her leggings at Old Navy, her shirt at Target, and her ballet flats at PayLess. And she also had humidity-induced frizzy hair and, to borrow a line from Steel Magnolias, it looked like “two pigs fightin’ under a blanket” when she took her sweater off. EXACTLY like her.
