Current Obsession: Grandpa Attire



We all know that older folk are experts at comfort, and lately I've been inspired by them!  I own some grandpa attire, and it seems to make its way into many of my everyday outfits. I practically live in a cardigan and moccasins. The picture above is of one of my grandpa outfits from this week. I could possibly say that it was one of the comfiest outfits I've ever worn. This Winter weather makes you want to just stay at home all day. It's raining, it's pouring, the old man is snoring! Why not snore in style?


1. Cardigan- Madewell, Shoes- Minnetonka // 2. Cardigan- Tory Burch, Shoes- Target or try your local thrift store (I've spotted some at mine!) // 3. Cardigan- J.Crew, Shoes- Bass

I am a guilty hoarder of cardigans and shoes. You can never have too many of both! Also, cardigans can be worn with absolutely anything and for any occasion. Here's a couple of sets I made of cardi's and shoes I would pair together. On the first set, I paired a white cardigan with yellow mocs. I already have these mocs in tan, but I know that if I had the yellow ones they would automatically become my favorite! On the second set, I paired a mint cardigan with a pair of shoes that I already own. I had never been a fan of anything mint color until recently. This color gives an adorable pop to any outfit! On the third set, I chose a Mister Rodgers inspired cardigan (I miss that guy) with some adorable saddle shoes. I used to have shoes like these when I would watch Mister Rodgers' Neighborhood! That's probably where this post roots from!

When it comes to everyday outfits, comfort is key! I've had many moments where I have channeled my inner child in my outfits. I decided to give my inner grandpa a chance too!

  5. this is a really cute post. i think the best "comfort dressing" outfits are those that are either sort of edgy and urban to keep things fashionable or just super cozy and vintagey and i too have a problem with collecting cardigans. it ha gotten better though! i think my favorite set that you put together has got to be the dark red sweater with the saddle shoes in fact i really now want a pair of saddle shoes haha. sweet blog you have here darling.

  6. I like your idea of comfort dressing - because it's still really cute! I too am a big cardigan fan... Sadly most of mine are black though just in different styles! I need more colour, esp in winter. Found your sweet blog via Sometimes Sweet - looking forward to reading more :)
