With February winding down and the weather warming up over these past couple of days, I thought I’d try to manifest an early Spring with the help of a bright, floral-printed cardigan I picked up recently from New York & Company– which had originally been a part of their Valentine’s Day collection for 2020.
I know that floral printed anything in the Spring is overdone and redundant- but floral print when we’re still in the middle of a New England Winter is still very much acceptable- and I love this cozy little sweater too much to say no to wearing it out and about whenever I can. It’s vibrant, and eye-catching- and pairs well with jeans and a plain white t-shirt.
And, although I’m still wearing boots until *all* of the snow has melted and I know my feet won’t get wet or muddy- I have a feeling this cardigan will be cute with a nice pair of white sneakers, too. It’s the perfect thing to throw on for a laid-back brunch with friends or during weekend errands.
And while I love how this sweater fits and how cute I think it looks on- I don’t think I’ll ever get over the price. Originally marked at $69.95, I had first seen this sweater while looking for some V-Day accessories and knew I wanted it for the Spring- but patience was key. A week after Valentine’s Day, the sweater was marked down to $29.95 and there appeared to still be plenty of size options available.
I decided to wait another week- and sure enough there was another markdown as New York & Company prepared to make room for their newer Spring collections. The cardigan’s final price was listed as $9.99 and I scooped it up as quickly as I could.
I love being able to take advantage of a great deal and discount like that- since it doesn’t happen too often!
And despite how others may feel- I know I’ll be wearing this sweater well after the first day of Spring. I love it- even if floral print is overdone.
