I have pretty much been living in variations on this sweater-and-leggings combination since the snowstorm last Saturday. Meet the newest addition to my granny sweater collection.
The vibrant colors, cozy knit, and wonderful oversizedness make it, I think, the sweater to end all sweaters. Sylvie, my dear, this is definitely one for the record books, and you must borrow it immediately!
These stirrup leggings I bought on Saturday are amazingly warm. Also, note the crazily thick socks. Under normal circumstances I usually wear thin cotton ankle socks, but in these chilly temperatures a good woolly pair is an absolute necessity. I feel like I am channeling Isabel of Hipster Musings in this outfit (never a bad thing, I am totally in love with her casual/cozy/insanely sequined style).
Between the glorious amount of snow and my newly blossomed love affair with leggings, I have been fantasizing lately about a winter vacation in some Scandinavian mountain cabin. Like this one, full of white walls, pale wood, minimalist furnishings, and huge windows for watching the blizzards. I can just picture sitting on a squashy couch in the loft, with only a mug of peppermint tea and a fresh notebook to keep me company, listening to The Mountain Goats. What's your fantasy winter locale?
