COZY & CHAOTIC

We had a teensy bit of snow last night and since I wasn’t driving in it I was pretty giddy! Snow can be so peaceful but so chaotic at the same time. That’s kind of how I feel this week; lax laid back tired, but beyond chaotic and stressed. I don’t know what it is, but I am really not feeling 100% like myself. All I really want to do is wear chunky knits and (yoga) pants; it’s just that kind of week I guess. My boyfriend always tells me that I have 10 of the same sweater and he has a point; I can’t turn down a neutral chunky knit. To me, neutral knits are just so beautifully practical, so you can be sure that this beige Banana Republic carpet-stitch open cardigan was number one on my Christmas list. In addition to its neutral beige color, its large open collar makes it easy to wear with a variety of tops. I’m honestly not sure what I’ll be wearing for the rest of this chilly week, but if it were socially acceptable I would wear this cardigan until spring. Bring on the cozy!

KNITWEAR PREP

I think I speak for most fall lovers when I say, that layering and chunky sweaters are the best part of a fall wardrobe. Considering  today marks the first official day of fall, I felt it was only appropriate to share one of my newest fall favorites. With the winters we’ve been experiencing, you can never have too many sweaters. This J. Jill mixed pattern topper is unlike my current knit selection, with its unique pattern mix and varying textures. It’s a perfect combination of marled yarns, herringbone and plaid patterns. OH! and cozy is an understatement, plus this topper is so warm  and not itchy like other heavy knits. Once it becomes weather appropriate I fully intend on pairing it with my black leather  pants and booties. I always feel that there’s a huge rush to jump into fall, and I prematurely start busting out my flannels but I think this week’s weather has proven that fall is actually beginning. With that being said, Happy Fall! (Let’s hold off on winter for as long as possible).

Also, since moving to Boston I happily reconnected with an old friend from college who started her own photography business Lindsay Connor’s Photography, check it out— she’s amazing and so easy and fun to work with!
