We talked swobes recently. I think it’s safe to say that this is the One Swobe to Rule Them All. Heavy, cozy pure British wool done up in amazing cables? Yes please. This sweater coat will join with my Icelandic tunic as one of the few items of clothing I own that can stand up to subzero temps. Though, as you can see, worn open it works beautifully in warmer weather, too. I loved pairing it with skinny faux leather pants for a fun juxtaposition.

It was 50 degrees on Sunday. AMAZING. All of the snow melted, and everyone in the Twin Cities did a dance of joy. Now it is 20 degrees and we’ve got snow again. Joy-dancing has mostly ceased. This outfit got worn for a day of weekend errands that included visiting George’s to pick up some leather dyeing supplies. Project post to come as soon as I can get it together!

I’d been ogling a few Curator pieces, and was lucky enough to receive this Georgie Hoody from the amazing team at Shop Adorn. Organic cotton, thick and cozy, supercool design … Georgie’s got it all. I love the super long ribbed cuffs and asymmetric zipper. Check out the other Curator pieces over at Adorn. And! If you’re shopping today or tomorrow you can get 25% off Nicole’s picks, which includes the Georgie hoody!

Dressed for: Winter Tie Dye

Like many kids, I grew up making rainbow tie dye shirts at summer camp, and associated them with youth. And eventually Deadheads. But now I totally dig black tie dye prints, and this one is no exception. Kinda looks like BADASS SNOW. Or maybe polluted snow. OK, let’s step off that train of thought …

My poor sparkly leggings have now been worn and washed so many times that they’re somewhere between leggings and tights. I’ve ordered the pair I linked to above – these high-waisted ones – and am hoping they’ll have the same subtle sparkle. My cotton leggings just get pilly and gross after a couple of years of wear, but these seem to be getting gradually thinner. Eventually, I guess, they will BECOME tights. A most unexpected transformation.
