Dear Los Angeles,
How do I love thee, let me count the ways… Except I have a bone to pick with you. Why is it 85 degrees in January? Here I am sweating in my apartment, trying to come up with design plans and all I want to do is wear a sweater and maybe see a raindrop or two. I know this whining is probably totally annoying to anyone reading this in a cold place, sitting in front of their computers shivering like the Little Match Girl, but I really wouldn’t mind a few more months of wintry weather before pool party season. My fantasizing about sweaters has led me to some online shopping. And here is what I found.
This sweater reminds me of one my mom knitted for my dad in the 70s. Totally classic and comfy looking. Topman, $84.
This one has the same vibe, but in tasty navy. Levis, $100 (on sale).
This is also from Levi’s, which is maybe my favorite clothing company in the whole world. I’m loving the festive snowflakes, wishing I could see some snow soon… $100 (also on sale).
This is a totally dorky picture, but don’t you love that color? I do. Ralph Lauren, $410 (on sale from $895, what a bargain, right. Not).
I love this Native American-inspired pattern on the sweater. Those 90z Abercrombie & Fitch pants? Not so much (Sidenote: a friend of mine recently outlawed us all from tucking our pants into our boots. Thoughts? I’m agnostic on the issue). Ralph Lauren, $185.
I love how white, tidy, and perfect this one is. And the sweater isn’t bad either. Ralph Lauren, $265.
Because the Ralph Lauren sweaters were giving me sticker shock, I had to end with something a little more attainable. I love myself a hoodie. And this one is knitted, which makes it even more luxurious. H&M, $35.
If you’re looking for me you’ll find me in my apartment, fantasizing about sweaters, sweater weather, and hommes in sweaters. Because there really is nothing more glamourous in the whole world. Sigh.
