One of the items on my wishlist is a cozy grey cardigan. But when you have a particular item in mind long enough, it's harder and harder to find. I add more details and features I'd like the longer I search for it which inevitably makes the search longer! After seeing how much I wear my camel colored boyfriend cardigan and my cozy cardigan from Express this past fall and winter, I wanted to add a grey one to my closet. Coziness was an important factor as was length and the perfect shade of grey. I prefer grey when it is made of variegated shades. It adds a nice level of interest and almost another texture to an outfit. I finally found the perfect grey cardigan on StyleWe for under $70. Although that is a bit of a splurge for me, as soft and warm as this sweater is I find it worth it! Sweaters are definitely an area I can justify spending a bit more on if the quality is good and I saw the quality with this as soon as I opened the package! 
What types of items can you justify splurging a little on?

  7. This outfit is right up my alley, Laura!!
    I think you'll get a ton of wear from that cardigan, so the cost won't make you feel so guilty. I have one that's over 5 years old---and I love it! I find that it can replace a coat sometimes, especially over some dresses!!

  8. This color combination is one of my faves.
    They grey cardigan was a good purchase, although I admit the price is higher than I would normally pay. So, now you have a task of taking this cardigan to a low cost per wear ;)

  17. Why is it that when you are looking for something specific it never seems you can find it? This is the perfect cozy cardi, and I love it with your white denim.

  18. For me, if I splurge it has to be of good quality, and either something really unique, or something I will get a ton of use out of. I'm sure this cardigan will be on constant repeat, and I love your bright springtime colors!
