This is truly my favorite time of the year. The weather is beginning to cool down and the layers start to come out. It’s the time of year when boots come out of hiding and sweaters get to be unfolded after a year of hibernation. This year I’m all about the crewneck sweater. For a while all I bought was either v-neck sweaters or cardigans and while I still love all of them, crewnecks are where it’s at right now.
I’m loving this windowpane crew from Banana Republic. Everything about it is so perfect. It’s made of a super-fine merino wool so it’s beyond soft. It feels like butter. I love the modern oversized windowpane; it adds just enough personality without being too trendy. Perhaps the thing I love the most, and it’s something I’m very particular about, is the fit. I hate when sweaters are loose at my waist or too boxy and shapeless. This crewneck fits like a glove and is perfectly tailored. This sweater has quickly become a staple of mine to layer over shirts or wear by itself.
Speaking of staples, if you’re in the market for a pair of jeans you’ve got to consider these. They’re made of this soft, Japanese denim and have just the right amount of give in them that makes them so comfortable. I decided the moment I put them on that I’m wearing them the next time I fly anywhere. They look great and versatile enough to go with anything, but are so comfortable that I can foresee a plane ride in their future.
Funny side note, anyone who works with me knows that I tend to sit like a pretzel at work. No matter the office chair, my legs are always curled up under me or hanging off the side. Normally jeans or dress pants make it so that I can’t sit like that for too long because they’re constricting. These guys have eliminated that problem and I cannot tell you how happy that makes me. If I’m going to be forced to sit at a desk all day I better be damn comfortable. And still look good. Am I right?
Holiday season mantra: Make sure I look good and stay comfortable all holiday season long. And eat lots of stuffing. Oh man, do I love stuffing.
