The Leopard Cardigan That Wouldn’t Go Away

When that certain piece haunts you for weeks while you’re online shopping.

This leopard cardigan literally haunted me for months. I first saw it during the Nordstrom Sale over the summer, but really couldn’t justify buying a $400 sweater in July. So instead I just stalked it online every day, hoping it would go on sale. It didn’t. It actually sold out pretty quickly. Welp.

For the next few months, I saw it on a few bloggers, and even on the street in the city one day (I really wanted to ask the girl if I could buy it off of her back, no lie). And then, naturally, I forgot about it. I probably found some other piece that I wanted – a piece that was in stock.

And then, one day I was browsing Nordstrom Rack – something I never really do – and I FOUND THE CARDIGAN. IT WAS RIGHT THERE. IN MY SIZE. AND 60% OFF. I bought it (duh). And it’s 100% safe to say that I am so happy it found its way into my life. It’s just an easy piece to throw on over literally anything, and you cannot go wrong with leopard print anything. And I obviously have a thing for leopard.

I loved wearing this cardigan with a pair of suede leggings and some velvet flats (just found these for 50% off!). Cozy and comfortable: two things I pride myself on when getting dressed;) This cardigan just makes it ridiculously easy to feel put together.

On another note, how was your weekend? It was pretty low key one for me. I think I gained about 13 pounds thanks to the nonstop eating that happened at my sister’s house last night. DEFINITELY spending some extra time in the gym tonight! I also decided I’m going to get the iPhone 7+ (hopefully this week). If you have it, do you like it? I have the 6+ now, but have NO storage on my phone which is UNBELIEVABLY annoying. I also want the awesome camera for when I go to London at the end of the month.
