Grandma Sweaters



inspired by ellybeth and memories of my mother's scratchy sweaters, i had to buy this monstrosity at goodwill while shopping for halloween costumes last week. despite knowing that it is hideous, i can't help but to luuurrrrve it. it's so big it fits over my college sweatshirts, it keeps me super-cozy while biking in the crisp november air, and it reminds me of my mommala. so, be honest: should i be ashamed to wear it in public?

It's sort of trendy this fall - I might try to top it with something to cut down the pattern. Maybe a puffy vest over it? A belt?

Actually, I'm totally loving it and I think you would look so cute with that oversized sweater, a scarf, and your lovely blue bicycle riding around town. This makes me wish I had access to a Goodwill and some big wooly grandma sweaters here in Germany...sigh...

You have only been blogging for 2 weeks but I love your style. I don't think you should be ashamed of wearing the sweater, it looks really cute on you and I'm pretty sure you will find a cool way to style it.
