winter and chunky cable knits go together like cookies and milk, cheese and wine, pizza and beer. ha! and you thought i was going to say peanut butter and jelly. see, there are all sorts of things that go together nicely. but i digress from the issue at hand which is today’s ootd that features a gorgeous oversized grey cable knit from everlane. this brand is my new favorite online shopping destination and my go-to source for simple classics. if you’re interested there is a video at the end of the post where i briefly discuss everlane and the items purchased thus far. the modern loafer, the cashmere crew, the crew sweatshirt, have all found a new home in my closet. the newest addition is this beautiful cable knit sweater that’s perfect for a cold winter day. what i like about everlane is their simplistic take on classic items and the quality they offer.
in case you hadn’t heard white denim is perfectly fine to wear 365 days a year. this particular pair is a girlfriend jean from talbots that offers a roomier, relaxed fit. to top off the outfit i choose a slouchy pair of suede booties from frye. this is another brand that gets my vote for quality. it appears that frye is restocking the cara suede booties. you may have luck here.

Your blog makes it so much more fun to get dressed. I want to especially thank you for your post of a couple of weeks ago about building your ootd from the colors in a scarf. Brilliant! And what fun! Thanks.
hi carol! happy 2018. i’m so happy you found a little inspiration from a style tip. that’s what the blog is all about.
When you buy girlfriend jeans, Beth, do you take your regular size? I never know if I should go down a size because of the more relaxed fit. I read recently that you can get the same girlfriend effect by buying one size larger than your usual one in your regular jean style. First world problems. . .
these girlfriend jeans have a relaxed fit so i chose my regular size which gives an over sized look. sometimes, i think i should have sized down one size for a slimmer yet relaxed fit. it’s a toss up! and you’re so right about those first world problems. at the very least, i’ve always thought of fashion as a neutral zone where socio and economic barriers are non-existent. it’s our love of fashion that unifies us!
I’m also a huge Everlane fan–I’ve purchased a few things of theirs that I just love. The cable sweater is beautiful–I have a few similar oversized sweaters and they’re sooooo comfy during cold temps. That’s a winner. I hadn’t seen that one–I was tempted by the cream colored one, but realize I have several similar, and I recently found a hole in a grey sweater I loved, so this miiiiight just have to find its way into my closet! 😉 love the neutrals with browns–they’re great together.
i recently found a moth had eaten a lovely hole in a beloved italian cashmere sweater! ugh! nothing worse than that especially since i had forgotten to unwrap the cedar strip that was hanging in my closet for prevention.
anyhoo, you will love this sweater, sue, if it finds its way into your closet. i love grey and brown together. perfectly chic.
It DID find its way into my closet–and I wore it today–temps outside are in the 30’s again, and it is soooooo cozy. Already had 2 compliments at brunch. I’d say that was a win. Thanks for profiling it!
I’m so sad!!! I did get my daily email today!!! I know you have said there are computer problems. I’m hoping that its not on my end???
hi debbie! this coming monday there will be no more issues with email’s or site speed after the migration is complete. can’t wait.
I look forward to seeing how you style the green striped dress in your video. I just purchased something very similar in black and ivory. My default is always a denim jacket but I’m looking forward to seeing if you have other ideas. Love your blog and get so much inspiration from you!
hi donna! thanks so much for stopping by! i’m looking forward to the temps that will match that striped dress. a jean jacket always works but i’ll see what else i can come up with!
