Grandpa Chic

Urban Outfitters sweater, Forever 21 tee and shoes, J Crew pants and Treesje Handbag
 
Who says my dressing like a grandpa isn't in fashion? When I want to be warm and cozy and not think too much about my outfit I grab a cardigan or over-sized sweater. This is a cardigan that I picked up at Urban Outfitters on sale a while back and I recently saw in a magazine that Diane Kruger was wearing  this "fair isle" cardigan. I may look like an old man in Alaska, but I don't care.

It's the latest obsession, however I live in such a non-fashionable locale that it never quite cycled out here so I would probably blend in with the elderly more than I would stand out as trendy. haha
You wear it well! & cute blog you have! :)
