For some time, I’ve been looking to add some playful, whimsical elements to my wardrobe. Whimsical, but not too frou-frou or twee or goofy. Ok, so maybe this lemon-print sweater is a little goofy, but I love it.
I wore this out to dinner with friends a few nights ago. I’m still figuring out how much color and pattern I’m comfortable with, and this little bit of bold pattern peeking out from underneath the coat felt Just Right. A striped or printed sweater or top is one of my favorite ways to add visual interest to a simple outfit.
I picked up this printed sweater on sale, as well as the coat. The coat is unlined boiled wool, so isn’t overkill for our mild winters. This color is almost sold out, but there are several others available.
I like how the bag adds a bit of texture and sparkle without being too focus-pulling. This style is sold out; here’s one that’s very similar.
Looks like the Meyer lemon bush we planted last year is working on a bumper crop!
Still crazy about these loafers…
