This is the final piece from my op-shop trip the other week. It’s just a really simple khaki green cardi. If I am being honest I probably didn’t need it, but for $5.00 I couldn’t leave it behind. But I can completely justify the purchase; I needed a cardi in a darker shade, it’s longer than my typical cardis and its super-duper warm for winter. Plus, if you haven’t already realised I am obsessed with this colour.
I picked this up in the Hutt Salvation Army store which was a really great store and I ended up finding a tonne of stuff, will definitely have to take a trip back up there. I’m really pleased with this purchase. I am such a fan of slouchy cardigans, they are just so easy to wear, comfortable and I think they are really warm, especially when they are woollen. I have developed a pretty large collection of cardigans, and I’m always telling myself, ok that’s the last one, but I know it’s not. I have had my eye out for a patterned one for soooo long. Maybe when I finally find one my collection will complete. Doubt it.
This cardigan in particular is a really strange knit, I think its wool but it’s been knitted so finely that it looks like jumper material. But it’s really warm and longer than my usual cardigans which is nice for a change, and to mix it up a bit. Really pushing the boundaries with my change in cardigan style. (sarcasm)
Also I think this cardigan is a prime example of how rolling sleeves can look really good and make something fit so much better. Sometimes I try things on and the sleeves are either way too short or long, so rolling them helps with this problem. I actually think it looks nice.
