This weekend, after what seemed like an eternity, the Swedes were reunited. Erik took a break from college classes and papers and made his way down to Chicago. There is nothing that I love more than getting the chance to spend time with loved ones. So a few hours with the family was a much welcomed break after an intense week at work.
The weather lately has been everything one should expect from a Chicago winter...wet damp days, frigid temperatures, snow and wind, lots of wind. Although, Erik made fun of my complaining this weekend...supposedly Minnesota has it a lot worse.
My absolutely favored article of clothing during the winter, and fall for that matter, is a chunky cardigan. Layers is where it is at. Can I get an AMEN?! I think it would be safe to say that I wear a chunky cardigan four out of seven days in a week. It may be a little obsessive, but they are absolutely on my list of MUST-HAVEs for winter.
My newest one, the Koto Patterened Shawl Cardigan from Urban Outfitters is one my by all-time favorites. The native patterns, the skull accent on the back, it's perfect in all the right ways. I think it is even on sale right now...hurry and get one before it is sold out!
