I had been on the hunt for the perfect pastel pink sweater for the longest time and couldn’t find one. In typical fashion, it is when I am not specifically looking for it that I find it.
I was in, of all places, Target for something other than clothes. Per usual, I have to walk past women’s clothing to get to the rest of the store (would you believe me if I said that was the only way in and out?) when I saw it. But in the maternity section. The perfect, pale pink sweater. It was light weight enough, long enough, and cute enough. But it was maternity.
Now I have been known to purchase something maternity when I was not pregnant, so I figured I should at least give it a try. I mean it seems now that maternity clothes don’t even look maternity! Into the fitting room I went (I sized down two sizes), and it was a perfect, non maternity looking fit. I had found it! The pink sweater I had been looking for! It isn’t online but it is currently in stores!
With all the thinking that I had been doing about said sweater, I knew I wanted to pair it with one of my utility jackets and my nude lace up flats for the perfect feminine, yet casual look.
