The Brown Sweater

I was on the hunt for a brown sweater for so long, and then I found this one on etsy. It was more modern than I like (I think ’70’s) but it was in bouclé so I bought it. I’m not sure if I was already thinking of changing the buttons or if that idea came to me when I received the cartigan. I got kind of obsessed with buttons and I bought all three colors, which I thought would look good on brown. Yellow, red or green? I finally decided on the green.
