Yes, it’s April in Chicago (the end of April, may I remind you). And YES! Those little white dots are snowflakes. Snowflakes?! Can Spring please show up in Chicago?! The day I wore this outfit last week, I took The Little Guy out for a walk and just as I started taking photos, it began to flurry. And it stopped just as I finished the photos… of course.
At least I wore a nice, cozy sweater to fend off the finicky weather. I received this sweater as a gift from my sister, and it reminds me of something I might find cleaning out my grandpa’s closet. When I received it, I noticed it said “Men’s” on the tag. It’s from Target’s Neiman Marcus collection just before last Christmas. I wondered if it was actually a men’s sweater, but I saw it displayed in what appeared to be the women’s section, so I assumed the tag referred to the “style” they were targeting. Then… I saw a guy at the airport wearing my sweater. I must say that I’ve seen many women in articles of clothing I also own, but this proved to be the first time I saw a guy in something I own. I called The Man and had a good chuckle with him about it.
No matter to which department it belonged, I love it in my closet and it suits me well through the never ending arctic tundra of winter we endure.
