Folktale

Leggings: Target 'Mossimo Full Length Legging' (MY FAVORITES!)
Socks: Target










Nothing beats a super cozy sweater. Scratch that. Nothing beats this cozy sweater. When I saw it at Forever 21, I knew it had to be mine. The fringe, the pattern, the name (Folk Girl Fringed)...I automatically envisioned about a bajillion different outfit combos revolving around this sweater, but that all came crashing down when they only had two left..in XL. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so of course I tried it on, and even considered buying it despite the blanket cocooned like appearance it gave me. My mom quickly talked me out of it, but I kept circling the same part of the store, hoping I had missed it by some chance. With no luck, I headed to the dressing room to try on the two other items I had picked up that were now far less appealing. Walking into the dressing room, a tiny bit of maroon and brown coziness caught my eye from the try on castoff rack and I practically lunged to see if it was my size. Sure enough, perfect size, perfect fit = one happy girl. Folk tale? Nah...true story.

One day this week (I've worn it at least every other day since I got it...), I paired it with a chambray button down, leggings, chunky socks and wedge booties. A story that most definitely ends in a happy ever after<3 nbsp="" p="">

  3. I saw this cardigan on the F21 site and fell in love! I didn't snatch it up thanks to college girl budget issues, but it's nice to see someone style it so well! Love the outfit, especially the scrunched up socks. Isn't it lovely when you find THE piece just waiting for you after a tiresome search at a store?

  7. Man, it is a good thing there isn't a Forever 21 near where I live...I would spend all my money in that store...
    Aha, specifically on this awesome fringe cardigan! The print, color, drape...everything is perfection. You styled it up perfectly too!
