There’s something so satisfying about working two or more underutilized items into a single outfit. I’ve adored this cardigan for as long as I’ve owned it, but it’s actually quite a bit longer than most of my coats, so unless I want to do some creative tucking it is best worn in fall and spring when it’s possible to go coatless. And these boots seem to have a secret fan club, since at least two of you have inquired about them in the past few weeks. I still love them, but discovered upon reviewing old outfit posts that they hit really high on my leg and are, therefore, a bit tough to style. There were also several winter months during which I couldn’t get them zipped! (Fluevog cuts narrow, people.) Amazingly, these two tricky pieces play well together. Triumph! read more

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep I thought, “Wow, tomorrow is the first. How bizarre to enter December with no snow on the ground.” And then Mother Nature was all, “MUAH HA HAAAAAA.” I remember that last year at this time we had around 20 inches of snow. And I remember that snow sticking around till May, so I’m good and grateful that we have a mere dusting today. But I still found said dusting utterly sadlarious in light of my errant snow-related thought last night. read more
