As a true summer-lover there is nothing more dreadful to me than the idea of sweater shopping. It's basically conceding that the sun-kissed glory days of summer are dead, and the rainy, snowy and all-around glum days of fall have arrived.
Still, despite my general dread for temperatures below 65 degrees, I managed to find something to love in the sweater section: this chunky, blush Zara knit.
After spying it on the shelves, I tried it on and found myself feeling like Joan Smalls and Cara Delevingne at the Stella McCartney fall 2014 show – that is to say cozied up in knits and ready to dance. So if this sweater can make me, the eternal winter pessimist, excited about the cold, then imagine the wonders it can do for you.
