Here’s what I’ve figured out about my personal coziness level: My legs are virtually impervious to cold. So long as I’ve got tights and boots, it can be bitterly cold out and I’m pretty much fine.* But if I want to be truly warm my arms and upper body MUST be covered. Ideally, my neck should be covered, too. This cardigan is gorgeous, quite heavy and it does, in fact, do well in the neck department, but dang those are some breezy sleeves.

That’s right, I decided it would be a grand idea to wear tall leather boots on a day when it was 95 and humid. Why, you ask? Well, since I was running late and didn’t have time to shave my legs before meeting with a closet consult client, it was boots. Flat boots, since I knew I’d be standing or walking around for three-plus hours. Luckily, her apartment was air-conditioned! read more
