you may be wondering why oscar is making an appearance mid-week. and why i’m having a cocktail before friday… well, these photos first appeared in a post in January of this year. before the s**t hit the fan in 2020. but this chunky knit sweater from Talbots is back in stock, as are the faux leather leggings from Ann Taylor. since this is one of my favorite sweaters, i wanted to share it with you again! love when brands trot out old favorites. this time of year, nothing is easier to wear than a chunky knit sweater and faux leather leggings, especially when there’s a cold winter wind blowing.
the cocktail recipe can be found here. it’s called Winter Aperol Spritz. if you’re looking for a refreshing cocktail, this is it. many of you know i’m a big fan of Aperol, and i’m always looking to incorporate it into a delicious aperitif.
yes! this chunky knit sweater is a favorite of mine due to the longer length and the side zip. this sweater is available in ivory and black and is so cozy to wear. there were reviews that the fabric was cheap, but i didn’t find this to be the case. it washes well in cold water, and i always line dry my sweaters. so no problems on my end.
since my days in san francisco (can you believe it’s been five years since i relocated to athens?), i’ve loved faux leather leggings. these days, i not only wear leggings but joggers and trousers too. and i have navy, black and burgundy stocked on my shelf. faux leather pants are a nice alternative to denim all winter long that keep us looking modern and fresh. this pair has a side zip, which is flattering along with seams down the front and back.
it’s wednesday, gang! time to put a smile on someone’s face, including yours!
