[Meg's note: When I met Jaina and learned about her Jackie cardigan lifestyle, I knew she could write an amazing post for F.E., and once I learned that she documented her cardi-based outfits on Jaina in Jackie, I was hooked! Thanks for sharing, Jaina! xo]
The Jackie had the perfect sleeve length to cover up my tattoo, it held up after multiple washings, and it was affordable ($62). Although I had solely worn black cardigans my entire life, the Jackie opened up my eyes to color. Red! Yellow! Green! OMG Orange! I began to see cardigans not as a way to cover-up an outfit, but to enhance it.
Some ladies do shoes, others do purses, I do cardigans. It's a less glamorous obsession than most, but in the end, librarians are practical people.
