My Oldest Clothing Item (that I wear every fall and winter)


If my memory serves me I first discovered the Splendid Waffle Knit Thermal Cardigan at Anthropologie. I know it’s been sold there over the years and I honestly cannot remember when I first found this cardigan.

I’ve since seen it at Splendid’s online store (they are doing 40% off today 10/3 on some colors with code “friends” taking nearly $30 off), and also on Amazon.

It’s the *perfect* open cardigan. I’ve gotten so much wear out of it, both the grey and black version, and there’s not an item I think you need more in your closet this fall and winter than this one.

It can be thrown on over athleisure wear, or dressed up with knee high boots and a striped or basic tank underneath.

I usually wear this sweater every time I’m traveling because it’s long and comfortable but doesn’t feel too heavy or bulky of a sweater.

I love the hood, the pockets, and it has a flattering drape around the front.

I don’t think they are making this dark charcoal grey anymore but there is a lighter grey option available that is really pretty.

I genuinely think this is one of the oldest items of clothing that I have in my wardrobe. Before this I had an 11 year old trench coat from Gap that I finally replaced because a hole had finally ripped through the right hand pocket.

We’re still sitting in the 80’s here in North Carolina, which is par for the course for October, but I’m inching this sweater closer and closer to the front of my closet to get ready to wear as soon as we dip below 79 degrees 🙂

    I have this same cardigan in white. I find I keep reaching for it all the time. Just a classic! I don’t even know how old mine is….but it still looks great.

    I love this idea, but I have a question about hosting……..I was curious how many rooms do you actually utilize in your home throughout the mystery?
