Wearing long, oversized knit cardigans has been a thing I’ve wanted to do. One because they look comfortable AF and two because they give an air of effortlessness while still put together that I love. Problem is when you’re short these things tend to swallow you whole and you end up feeling like Jonah in a whale. However during the infamous Zara sale I saw this fabulous knit and thought, yes! my grandma chic desires will finally happen this year! The best part about this sweater is its ability to go with any and everything. When I tell you I’ve worn it with jeans, over sweats during a late night Target run, with dresses as seen here and sometimes even in the house while I take in a film, a la Masterpiece Theater. I basically feel wise beyond my years and like fabulous while I watch Netflix. I know you Beyonce fans are not impressed by my cardigan as much as you may be drawn toward the yellow lemonade number I’m dawning here. I’ll be honest as a non-Beyhive member, even I thought about that when I scooped this off the Zara rack too. If there is one thing we can agree on it’s that, that damn Yoncé is styled pretty well.
The best thing that happened while I shot this look was the little girl that stopped me to say she loved my hair and how pretty I looked. Which only then confirmed two things.
One, grandma chic is in and two, Black girl magic is absolutely a real thing.
