Tie Dye Fringe Cardigan

I am a huge fan of Nora at Jacket Society. Nora is a designer who creates the most beautiful blazers, wraps, and cardigans. I previously ordered a reversible wrap from her and am loving it. 

Plus, I love the way Nora styles all her jackets, wraps, scarves, etc. If you haven’t done so already, check out her Instagram

A few months ago, I started admiring her Tie Dye Fringe Cardigan. And then it went on sale before Christmas (everything on her site is still 25% off until January 10th). I was in Germany at the time and decided to leave a not-so-subtle hint for Andy on Instagram:

I was excited when I came back from my trip and got to open the box! And I was not disappointed. It’s exactly as I pictured it, and I couldn’t wait to wear it.

I decided to just put it on over some simple black leggings and a black tee. The cardigan instantly made the basics interesting. I can’t wait to play around with different ways to wear it in the coming weeks.

Questions: What’s the last clothing item you purchased? Do you ever leave hints for people when it comes to gifts? Andy and I don’t always give each other gifts for special occasions but usually decide to make bigger purchases we really want instead. For example, this year Andy got a DSLR (he wanted one for YEARS) instead of any other gifts. Well, besides a beer Advent calendar that is… We do always celebrate special occasions with a special meal or outing however.


Be Well,
Andrea

[Note: Andy purchased the cardigan with our joint credit card, which meant I got an email alert once he purchased it - even less a surprise than I had thought...]
