Spring teaser.

February 5, 2013

Filed Under: Style

This sweater reminds me so much of spring. It’s perfect for this time of year when all I really want to do is wear black and gray. I’ve been craving chunky knits, and over the past couple of weeks I’ve acquired more new sweaters than I’d care to admit. This is one of them. The pastel colors are completely uncharacteristic for winter wear but I absolutely love it. Plus, it’s metallic. I mean, seriously?

Don’t be afraid of pieces of clothing that feel a little out of place for the season. The heaviness of this sweater is perfect for winter, but the color scheme will allow me to wear it on a cold summer night as well. Hello, versatile!

    I’ve seen a lot of that lately. Pastels everywhere! Maybe designers know something we don’t. Maybe winter is staying WELL into spring!
    jk. Very cute top though.

  13. Absolutely love the sweater! I love lighter/pastel colors in winter…makes the cold season a bit more cheerful. :)

    I’m in the same place with my wardrobe lately. Now that it seems like the weather is going to stay cold for a while, I want heavier clothes. But by February, I’m already craving spring and all its lively colors. Good choice on the sweater!

  18. Love the sweater with the light jeans. I think I will wear something similar to work on Friday (jeans day!).

    On an unrelated note I recently bought a blazer and for some reason I’m having a hard time styling it, crazy right!?!?! I was wondering if you could put together a post with a bunch of ways you have styled a blazer in the past. That way I can get lots of ideas and you don’t have to take new pictures! Do you have your posts tagged? If you do that would be another great way for me to find all the ones where you are wearing a blazer.

    Thanks so much!!! – Jesse
