Melodic_Thrifty_Chic 's Thoughts:

After a little research I discovered that this hand knit floral sweater dates back to the late 70s, early 80s. Score! It’s a ramie/cotton blend, super heavy, thick and warm. I love the colors. The vintage look and feel of this piece was just so overpowering. I just had to have it and now that I do, I’m even more in love with it. Is it a total grandma sweater? Yes. Do I care? Nope! :D I can’t wait to do more layering with this vintage jewel!

You should know that I’m wearing a long sleeved striped tunic underneath. I just couldn’t resist adding the lace collar of the tunic to the floral mix. The collar makes the sweater uber vintage with even more grandma flavors! :D I think the oversized tortoise cat eye specs catapulted me into full on nerdy hipster grandma territory. I wasn’t so sure about these glasses at first, but they’re growing on me. Seriously, though. Best. Sweater. Ever.

oh that hat is cuter than my pink panther hat. I like the mustard sweater I have been looking for a mustard cardigan but as soon as you start looking for something, it escapes you.
