Monochromie Homie

October 17, 2011

I’ve been really into monochromatic outfits lately - obviously my all black ensembles don’t count, but just the other day I wore red from head-to-toe and loved looking like a tomato. This look is obviously much more subtle but I love how polished grey looks when paired with similar charcoal hues.

The other great thing about this outfit is that it’s as comfortable as a grey sweatsuit. The trapeze shaped cashmere sweater is as cozy as wearing a blanket and trousers with a little breathing room are a nice change from my everyday skinny jeans. If both pieces came in multiple colors I would definitely own them; I mean how great would this outfit look in emeraldy greens?! Peacock blues?! MUSTARD YELLOWS!? Oy!

The good thing is that this is an easy look to re-create no matter what pieces you have in your closet (sweater and trousers? I know you all have some of those in your wardrobe), so stay tuned for something similar coming real soon…

Warm and Cozy

January 3, 2011

Let me just say that there’s nothing like ringing in the new year with a bad cold like the one I’ve got (note the sarcasm…). Although I made it through the holidays and New Years Day sickness free, January 2nd brought me a despicable cold that has me curled up in cozy knits and warm blankets on my couch with a box of tissues in close reach. But duty calls and staying in bed is not on my agenda, so in attempt to make my sick day uniform look a little more fashion forward as I venture out into the world, I’ve turned my inspiration toward some delightful personal style photos that make thick cozy knits look both warm and chic.

Now if there were only some magical way to get rid of this wretched cold, although this method seemed to work out pretty well last time.

No print screams Winter quite like Fair Isle; a cozy knit technique featuring complicated patterns and images of snowflakes and/or reindeer. Each winter stores bust out some of the most deliciously soft fair isle knits and for some reason I have yet to purchase any. Although I grew up in California, I’ve lived in snowy climates for over six years now and think it’s about time that I add some of these snuggly knits to my winter wardrobe. Just looking at the pieces I’ve selected below make me want to curl up in front of a fire with a cup of hot chocolate while watching the snow fall outside my window - one of the best parts of the cold, blustery season.
