The Best Sweater Ever?

Friday, January 20, 2012



The older I get the more I realize that if something's not comfortable I won't wear it. No matter how fabulous it looks, what a great deal it was or how outfit post worthy it might be - if it itches, hangs weird or feels slightly "off" it will just end up just taking space in my already cramped closet. (Except for shoes, thou shall suffer for shoes.) Enter, The Best Sweater Ever?. I say that with a question mark because I'm leaving it open for opinions (after all, that's a pretty bold claim) but for this girl, it's working. Here's the thing about sweaters: I adore the look of big chunky cable knit, the luxury of cashmere, and the warmth af an extra layer. But here's the reality: most are itchy, hot or heavy and as discussed, I'm stubborn about that. Yet I'm completely smitten with this one. Why? It's lightweight, breathable, is totally an effortless layer (I love it over dresses!) but it's not itchy, hot or dry clean only (I do hand wash it.) I belt it, leave it flowy and even tuck it in to high waisted trousers. Therefore, it's quite possibly the best sweater ever. I purchased cornflower blue in fall and wore it here. And I recently bought 2 more - strawberry and olive. Sorry for sharing my epiphany so late, it really hadn't been cold enough yet here to want to reach for it daily (which I totally do now) {oh hi, 7 degrees} but there are still some left - and cheap - hurry!

  4. I'm such a sucker for a good sweater! I usually can't pull off an open knit, so my go-to has been the Tippi sweater from JCrew-thin, with a long body!

  13. I simply adore finding things like this. Simply adore. They always seem to be the pieces that don't involve much... ie just a sweater. But when you find ways to spice it up with everything you wear, it becomes a bit different. Love the way you've done it here.
