The Gap is my kryptonite, I swear. My mom and I wandered in while I was visiting Chicago, and this sweater absolutely leapt into my arms. It’s not the most versatile piece in the world, as it looks a bit odd worn unzipped and is too long in the body to wear with skirts, but it’s heavy, cozy, comfy, and form-fitting so a great bet for MN winters and springs. Its first outfit is extremely simple, but I felt fabulous in it nonetheless.

This tunic was a mega-bargain and I loved the easy fit and asymmetric neckline … but once I got it home, it felt like a whole lotta leopard. Somehow more leopard-y than a leopard-print dress, even! Could be because it’s such a high-contrast print. ANYHOO I finally discovered that a plain pair of dark-wash skinnies worked to tone it down, and I could still add some sassy red accents.
Yeah, I know. It’s lovely and warm out, the trees are greening up beautifully, and the crocuses are in full bloom. Sadly, that doesn’t make it any warmer in my little home office. And I’ve realized that cozy-yet-bulky sweaters like this one don’t actually fit inside most of my coats, so they’re ideal for transitional weather. So I swaddled myself in this ensemble, cranked the heat, and dug into my workday.
