Must Have Monday

An item that you spot and instantly fall in love with is like having a song stuck in your head. As hard as you try, you can't get it out of your mind! Last week I spotted a woman on the street wearing a coat very similar to this. I instantly thought fell in love with it but with no way of knowing where she got it from (she was too far away to approach and ask) I tried to forget about it and go on with my day. Naturally, the next day I spot ANOTHER woman wearing a similar style cardigan/coat while I was at church. Typically spotting two people wearing something before I purchase it would make me probably want it less, but this cardigan/coat seemed like the perfect weekend throw on to combat the already cold weather we're having here in New York.

For the past week I've been frantically searching to find a similar (and affordable) option to this black and white geo patterned oversize cardigan. So far I've managed to find these three options:

The first one is a  Staring at Stars Reversible Knit Cardie from UO which actually probably looks the closest to the original one I spotted on the street. The second one is another Staring at Stars brand Knit Cardie from UO which is slightly less expensive since it's not reversible, and I actually like the pattern more on but wish that the overall color was white with black designs instead of the other way around. Last but not least I found a third option, a Blanket wrap Cardie from ASOS, that looks ridiculously comfy and warm!

  1. I love these! They are different than just a regular coat. I love the prints on them too.

  2. Thanks Amy!! Glad you like them too :)!!

  3. I think this is a great piece to just throw on and go. It could work with almost anything. I would put it on to run errands, hang out with my girls or even a date night. I would even think to make it work appropriate.

  4. Love these sweater-coats. I haven't been able to find the right one yet though, but these are great picks (the third one is my favourite)!

  5. Thanks Alex!! I'm still on the hunt for the perfect one myself and I love all three of these options so it's going to be really hard to choose!! :)

  6. Thanks Karen, I completely agree with you!!! It would definitely be a piece that you easily get your wear out of
