It's not sparkles and sequins every day of my life... especially since we spent the weekend up north for Thanksgiving and the biggest priority was staying warm. This sweater fits the bill perfectly. I've always been attracted to these Nordic style sweaters, they are so wooly and Canadiana chic. I already have a few but when I saw this big guy while thrifting, I could not resist. Yup, it's too big for me but bigger is warmer and warmer is better. AND then I got to thinking... this sweater is the perfect size for Matt. He always asks me when I return from a shopping adventure, if I found anything for him. My answers are...
a) I didn't have any time. I was only there for a little bit.
b) The men's section was really bad. I looked but I didn't see anything you would like.
c) I'm pretty much self-absorbed. By the time I was done trying on the arm-loads full of clothing I discovered, all I wanted to do was pay and drag my sack of treasures home, where you would be waiting for me, hopefully, with a warm dinner.
I usually say either a) or b) but sadly enough, the truth is c). But with this sweater, things could turn around.
1. I could finally tell him that yes, I found something for him.
2. He could occasionally wear the sweater and I would think he looks so handsome because I love a guy in a cosy sweater.
3. Because I'm always freezing and Matt is always warm (and he's the dictator of the thermostat), he would only wear this sweater when it's really cold, leaving the sweater open to become my new 'I'm slumming around the house' sweater.
So, I wore the sweater all weekend and I'm wearing it again right now. Don't hate. You do it too. Bum around it one gloriously comfy sweater...
Oh ya, one more thing, this was Matt's original pose when I asked him to work the sweater. Yes, I'm proud.
