Ok, so it winter time and I’ve been doing what any self-respecting Midwest woman is doing right now; which is looking for warm new sweaters to wear. Especially now that I’ve noticed all I own is hoodies all of a sudden (don’t ask). So after several hours during a shopping trip with my mom and sister I came away extremely disappointed that even though I did find a great New Years outfit I found not a single cute sweater that was warm! I’ve made several trips out to different stores since then and came away even more annoyed. What happened to designers out there!? Did we get lazy or am I just on a way different wavelength fashion wise right now, because if the sweater was cute it was paper-thin and everything else was horrendous! For example I went onto H&M’s website to show exactly what I mean.

Here is an example of a sweater that has a design on it (most just seem to be thrown on there as if ugly sweater’s are now the “In” thing which is really annoying if you were to ask me). Looking at this pattern and color scheme I can imagine myself wearing it without feeling embarrassed (especially tied in with a cute red scarf or my rose gold one).

Cute Sweater

Then we have the same sweater, but different color scheme and design. What I wonder is…were they drunk or maybe high when they thought this up? I’m a bit disgruntled!

What were they thinking!? Seriously!

What were they thinking!? Seriously!

So for those of you that may be reading…am I alone on this or does it seem like it is really hard to find cute sweaters (or blouses for that matter) without having to dig through the internet because frankly I’ve given up on finding them in stores…unless maybe if I go to H&M because from looking at their website there is some hope yet. Also I would like to add they have this cool new feature on their website where you can dress up a model to see how the outfit you want looks and it adds up the total of the outfit. Big thumbs up H&M, LOVE IT!
