Hey everyone! After the last post where I talked about how I didn’t care for cardigans, I thought I’d show you the kind of sweater I really love.
This sweater gets so much wear October through April. When someone talks about a “wardrobe workhorse” this is what they mean. I wear it tons. Wash and dry it carelessly. Then throw it back on.
I know these pictures don’t show it well with the black blending into the black so I’ll try to explain it well. It has some weight from the knit jersey so it hangs nicely and has stretch. It has some structure so it dips in a bit at the waist then flares out a bit. It has this shawl collar that gives coverage and it has a nice vertical line.
And it has pockets!
This is a comfort sweater. When I was anticipating a stressful day at work I would wear this. It looked good and gave me comfort. It was my comfort armor. I own it in black and gray (though I keep hoping the burgundy comes back in stock and then I will snatch it up) and I have the summer version in white. It is from White House Black Market and black is available here, gray is available here, tan here and white here.
About this dress. I bought it in the spring and realized that I loved everything about it but the hem was a bit too high. No problem. Just wait until fall and wear tights or leggings with it and all of a sudden it doesn’t look too short. This dress is from J. Jill and is old but a similar dress (though it’s a bit heavier material) available here.
Where we’re photographing
And how about this wind and cold? These were taken on the Detroit River last Sunday and it was cold and windy. Of course, it’s gotten colder since then so be prepared for lots of red-nosed photos for the next few months! And, yes, that is Canada on the other side of the river. So exotic!
