Vintage, Cozy Cable-Knit

I now have a new-found appreciation for the Cold Climate Bloggers. This was the first time I dared to snap outfit photos in temperatures that were below freezing. Those who do it every day deserve continuous recognition. It has been mighty chilly in the former Hotlanta, but the relentless sunshine makes it a welcome departure from the warmer weather. It was the perfect opportunity to cozy up in an over-sized cable knit sweater.

While visiting my family for the holidays in NY, my boyfriend's uncle gifted me with this cuddly vintage Ralph Lauren cardigan. The best part? He wore the sweater for years before retiring it to HIS closet. A proud and unique addition to my wardrobe. Thanks again Uncle G. and Aunt B.! Your fashion foresight is incredible! :o)

Cable Knit Sweater: Vintage Ralph Lauren / Blouse & Skirt: Forever 21

Boots: Jessica Simpson

Every detail of the sweater, from the chunky knit design to the leather-bound buttons, makes this a classic winter staple, capable of being passed down from one generation (and one gender) to another.

I hope you all had wonderful weekends! How was the weather in your neck of the woods?
