Hello, Happy Monday. I hope you thoroughly enjoyed your weekend. My weekend was weird and I for one feel like it went too quickly. A good portion of it was spent reading and trying not to read Amy Poehler's "Yes Please" and having train trouble. I get weird about books I really like and stall reading them. I have been known to stretch a final chapter over a month. If this one could never end that would be ideal. I lost count of how many times I've read "Bossypants". As for the train trouble, my only comment is a resounding UGH.
I have been in the market for a cozy cowl neck sweater for quite a while. Slightly oversized sweaters are probably my favorite thing to wear once the temperatures drop. We've been so spoiled with a warm and completely unseasonal fall. I'm really not feeling very prepared this season. I spent a good chunk of yesterday looking at snow boots online. And wouldn't you be surprised that the pair I settled on no longer exists? Neither am I. Lucky for me, loose fitting cowl neck sweaters have been a popular style this year so there has been no lack of options. My biggest concern has been finding one at my desired, reasonable price point. I'm not about to spend an obscene amount of money on a sweater that is going to lose it's shape after half an hour. Those slouchy elbows drive me crazy. Needless to say I was thrilled when my mom found this gem at Century 21 for $20 last week. We both got one. We also have the same black Sam Edelman boots so I made a joke that we should probably run home and put on the same outfit. She was not amused. I guess those days of mother-daughter outfits are behind us, though I'm pretty sure that never happened either.
I wore this on Saturday in the typical New York winter style of all black with distressed pants and ankle boots. Coat and gloves not pictured. I obviously didn't walk around without those all day. It's cold here.
