I was working on my Christmas list the other day and noticed the bulk of the clothing items on it are sweaters! There are cardigans, cowl necks, scoop necks and v-necks. I already have a dressers worth of sweaters and more so it isn’t like I am lacking in that department! H’s list is on the same page and I noticed that I had put several sweaters on hers too. I guess I am inflicting my sweater addiction on my 4 year old.
Seriously though, why do I own so many sweaters and still want more? (Yes, Mathlete, I am reading your mind right now!)
First and foremost: Warmth. Once winter comes, I get cold (a lot!) and find it hard to stay warm. This is especially true in my meat locker of an office. Sweaters are the ultimate solution for this. Plus, I can layer them with things like lace camisoles or collared shirts to keep me warmer but still have an element of style.
Second: Practicality: I work in an office that is pretty conservative. We aren’t a suits everyday type office (at least for the women) but sweaters allow me to dress appropriately without having to wear a jacket each day.
Finally: Sweaters are just so darn cute! Have you seen some of the gorgeous women’s sweaters out for this season? They have everything from dressy sweaters to throw on for a holiday party to thick, cozy sweaters for lounging around at home.
So, do you have a clothing item that you just can’t get enough of? Own 200 pairs of shoes? Or maybe you have 50 white t-shirts? Spill it in the comments so I won’t feel like such a sweater hoarder.
