Monday Remix: Dear Cardigan

Dear fave cardigan,

2014-02-09 12.46.44

Goodbye not because I don´t love you anymore but because I´ve abused you so much that I couldn´t take it anymore. Despite that you´ve loosened up(literally) and pilled all over, I was still in a state of denial that you and I are still going strong but it´s so not true. Reality check told me to let you go and my heart´s breaking though you can´t see it in my smile.

So as a fitting goodbye, I´ve worn you one last time with my new leopard printed circle skirt on a sunny but super windy and cold day. As always, you were there keeping me warm all over. Oh, how I wish you didn´t grow so old easily but it has been more than three years and we have to part so that I can move on.

If you´ve forgotten how many times we´ve dated, these are just some of the ways that we´ve bonded a lot:

It´s with a real heavy heart that I´ve to let you go but fret not  because you´ll always be remembered  as the ONE who stayed with me season after season and who never let me down. Don´t feel so bad, okies? ;)

Love you to bits,

Che

I was laughing out loud at this post. How creative! It really is hard to break up with our favorites. I have a few that I need to kick to the curb. Cute skirt. Can't wait to see how you style this other ways.

I love the way your skirt and clutch stand out! It's always sad to say goodbye to very loved clothes. Hope you find a replacement!

looks like this would be your fave lounge outfit on days when you just like to stay home and watch tv or read a book.

Awwww. Poor little sweater. I hope it goes to a good home, 'cause it did serve you well.

Oh Che, I love this sweater with the leopard skirt. I love the previous looks, too but yes, the leopard is my fave. ♥

I think this is a very pretty cardigan. I like that you wore it with any style. I do hope you'll find another one soon.
