sweater dressing is a dream to wear. i still remember a favorite of mine from about twenty years ago. it was an adrienne vittadini knife pleat skirt and matching long cardigan in poppy red. the cardi had brass buttons painted in blue and i paired it with a yellow vee neck silk blouse with matching orange/red suede shoes. i loved to wear this outfit on sunday as we marched off to church with our three young boys in tow. their hair slicked over to one side, plaid button-down shirts and khaki pants. they were always up to their usual shenanigans sitting side-by-side in the pew. one of their favorites was to slip notes¬†to each other with prose harry potter style. “dear mr. djalali, i’m pleased to inform you…isn’t it funny how an outfit can capture a moment in time? today’s ootd is a sweater ensemble that i couldn’t resist. what drew me in was the graphic black and white print that’s easy on the eyes, but oh so sixtiesish. a red clutch and pointy-toed shoes are the¬†perfect accessories, but i think the oversized necklace just might steal the show.
