there are some pieces that i swear gain a cult-following nearly overnight. this pom pom cardigan from the brand chicwish is precisely one of those garments. all of a sudden, dozens of my favorite style bloggers were sporting it in their instagram feeds (including my girl, natalie). in true fomo form (the only time i have fomo is when it comes to clothes, otherwise, i’m happy to forgo a party in exchange for pajamas and a shark tank marathon), i ordered myself one at a discount over the black friday sales weekend.

when the sweater finally arrived, it was even better than i expected. having never ordered from chicwish before, i was nervous that the cozy knit wouldn’t live up to its hype. however, i was instantly impressed by its quality, texture (it’s SO soft), and design. it’s a total dupe for this similar style from anthropologie but for half the price! as far as sizing goes, i’m in the small/medium and it fits perfectly oversized -with enough room to layer a thin sweater underneath.
on a particularly stormy day (we’re experiencing a true “winter” in san diego standards at least), i layered my new favorite knit over my burgundy-colored suunday top and paired it with my distressed jeans and leopard flats. after years in the corporate world, i feel like i’m still getting the hang of layering in a more casual capacity. but if this outfit is any indication of my progress, i’d say i’m headed in the right direction.
