Here’s a great example of being over-prepared: Having lived through countless Minnesota winters that involved long stretches of sub-zero temperatures, and being a person who is naturally SUPER cold, I finally sprung for some truly massive sweaters to wear when this one was at the cleaners. The one you see here has been on my wishlist for at least three years, and was ordered direct from a lovely woman named Helga who told me that since it was out of stock, they’d have to knit one up special for me. Totally worth the investment and the month-long wait. ALTHOUGH this blissfully abbreviated winter meant I only wore it once. read more

I bought this scarf at Zara in Cardiff, more or less on a whim. It’s a cozy and versatile scarf, to be sure, but I thought of it as more utilitarian than anything. But holy moly, does it ever draw comments. Of all of the wildly printed, brightly colored scarves I own and wear, I would never have pegged this one as the crowd favorite. Go figure. read more

I’m pretty sure I lusted after this sweatshirt dress for a full year before pulling the trigger. And it’s a little on the boxy side, but I DON’T EVEN CARE BECAUSE IT IS THE COMFIEST EVER. And a wonderful, heavy, cozy, washable cotton. Can you tell I’m smitten? I’ve worn this exact outfit three times in the past month, plus a few other variations. I love it when a longed-for item lives up to my hopes. read more
