Knits and Things

The first time I saw this sweater, I experienced a deep bittersweet feeling. I thought it was such a rich, pretty color, but the weight made it too heavy: it would never be that cold here.

Cut to what might be the coldest El Niño since 1997, and it made sense to own the crop medium-weight pullover.

I dressed it up with some sensible, yet stylish, tailored trousers. Personally, I am a big fan of dressing ankle length trousers with sleek pumps. That’s what’s so great about ankle length: they show off whichever cute shoes you choose.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside. . . (So Put On A Dress)

The temperatures are dropping. The wind is colder, less of a kiss, and more of a smack, on your cheeks. I’m almost going through my lip balm by the bucket load.

If I sound dramatic, it’s because I am: in L.A., where we’re used to year-round sunshine, cold weather brings out the worst in us. So, I fight it, by wearing a bright and breezy sun-dress.

We’ve already discussed the color choice :)

Willfully ignoring the cold wind, instead choosing to delight in how it plays with the light fabric of the dress.

The print and color reminds me of a honeycomb.
