The BEST Leopard Cardi + Anthropologie Favorites
I’m just going to come right out and say it: it’s rare that I purchase an item priced over $100, especially a sweater. In the past, I’ve always reached for fast-fashion items that were cheap and cute in the moment, but didn’t really last longer than a year. They would fall apart, pill after just a few wears or look tired and tattered by the end of the season.
Part of the reason I never invested in my wardrobe was because I refused to invest in a body that wasn’t perfect. I hadn’t hit my goal weight, so I didn’t think I was “worthy” of nice things. What if I bought something, then it was rendered useless soon after when I dropped a few sizes? That would be a waste. Why reward a body that doesn’t deserve to be rewarded?
I’ve come a long way in my body love journey, but it’s hard for me to share this because it breaks my heart that I spent so many years of my life associating my worth with size and weight. The girl who loved fashion, who preached to others to invest in well-made items that will last forever, wouldn’t do the same for herself. In the past year or so, I decided it was time to change all of that. It’s time I take that last step in my journey by investing in myself and my wardrobe.
SHOP THE LOOK
I’ve been slowly purchasing pieces, beginning with my now favorite jeans from Good American a last Spring, then my first fancy hat from Lack of Color, and now I’ve finally started shopping Anthropologie after they extended their size range. When I saw this leopard cardigan I knew I had to have it! It’s unique, I love the weight of the knit, and it’s so incredibly cozy. I can pair it with jeans, like I have here, or throw it on over leggings and a t-shirt. It’s already been worn multiple times each week since I purchased it!
Below are some more of my favorites that I snagged with the leopard cardi during Anthro Day. Then yesterday Anthropologie announced ANOTHER SALE: 50% off select items! So I stocked up on some more basics that I had been eyeing, too.
