I knew our balmy faux-summer couldn’t last forever, and alas, I was right. Yesterday was grey and cold and generally icky. I didn’t have the heart to try to be springy in my wardrobe choices, especially since my one and only objective was simply to stay warm. My solution was to pull out this sleek but often overlook cowl-neck sweater dress, which I had purchased a year or so ago with the hopes that it would fulfill my need to keep warm and feel professional/snazzy. I tried to add a little extra pizzazz with the aubergine tights. Although you can’t tell from the photo, my final touch was to add a little “spring” to my step with a pair of butterfly earrings from Etsy – see detail shot, below.
