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!

I’m all about neutrals, and this diagonal-stitch sweater in barley heather has been an instant ‘moody’ day go-to for me. You know those days when you’re just not in the mood for anything except Bravo TV and a pint of ice cream? Unfortunately, being an adult comes with responsibilities and there’s no snooze button strong enough to shut down your job, however this cozy knit makes getting dressed for work on a ‘moody’ day much easier. It’s like wearing your favorite quilt. All you have to do is throw on a pair of pants and some booties and you’re ready for the day. Then, after you work you can eat all of the ice cream and watch all the Real Housewives episodes that you want! AND if you’re looking for a good bootie this season, these GEE’WAWA for J. Jill’s chocolate suede booties are a suitable option. The heel is reasonably stacked giving you the support you need while still adding some necessary height.

Don’t worry, once you stock up on quilt-like knits those ‘moody’ days will get easier… I promise!
