Entries in Cable knit sweater weather (2)




Emersonmade is out with a line of three seriously covetable "Travelling Coats" and after much deliberation I've decided the "Big Hound Wool Tweed" - top - is my favorite. It's irresistably blustery in D.C. today and I'd like nothing more than to burrow right in to all that houndstooth. Of course I had to tack on the bottom shot, too, of the cotton "Year Rounder" - sipping a cuppa in tailored trenchy stripes? Get cuter.



Rock and wool

Happy Monday! Incredible fall weekend here in D.C. - crispy cable knit sweater weather and I loved every minute. Among other things (does anybody know how to preserve boxwood leaves?) I made headway with a big studio project (more on that later!) and then checked a bunch of other stuff off my list of things to do before this Friday's trip out west. Which brings me to our first matter of business. A fall wedding in San Diego. What to wear? I immediately thought of these photos, posted last month by Garance Doré and Scott Schuman, respectively. I looove the look of a wool crew neck pulled on over a full-ish skirt. It's so cozy, and yet, so chic! And while I'm certain my own take will hew decidedly toward the cozier end of the cozy/chic spectrum, I think it might be just the thing for this weekend's coastal revelry!
