Out With The Old, In With The New

A couple of my favorite sweaters from this season are already looking a little sad from pilling (if anyone has a good prevention or solution to that, please comment!). I purchased this one on sale the other day to replace a more ragged one in my rotation because two things are certain – (1) sweater weather will be around for a few more weeks and (2) I can never have enough navy. I love the relaxed look of this one, and have my fingers crossed that the fabric combination will not show wear as quickly as some of my other purchases this season.

Reality Check. When writing this post, I did a little research about how to prevent sweaters from piling and the most common tip was to “limit wear.” That’s not very helpful.

    The website that says “limit wear” must live in Florida, that is not an option! I limit the washing of my favorite clothes. My grandma’s house has a certain smell to it, not bad, just a smell and those clothes if I leave in hanging for a couple days the smell will dissipate and I can hang back in my clothes good as new. When I was I try to wash with delicates and I lay flat to dry, never dryer. I’ve got a bcbg sweater that I love from a couple years ago and the wear isn’t showing too bad as I only wash it a couple times a year.

      Thanks Katie! You have more patience than I do when it comes to cleaning! (; But I agree with your last statment, the ones that look best are the ones that I don’t wear that much (back to the obvious advice from the article!).
