Let’s start right off with this little mohair beauty from Maria Cornejo, which it’s possible I purchased over the weekend.

Red and black adds a little edge to the ethnic vibe here.

It’s all about the cool interplay between the the silver lapel—which looks painted on—and the grey here.



Rag & Bone leopard

I like how the (excellent) grey leopard print takes up the top part of the sweater and then fades out. Almost, just a tiny bit like a Fair Isle.

And here’s the one you’ll throw on every day.

    I love sweaters especially my favs by Eileen Fisher. They are great for women of a certain age who need to dress in layers because you never know what the temps in the office will be.

    OT –
    in my heart lies a 12 year old boy, everytime I see “Maria Cornejo”, I read it as “Maria Cornhole”

    lovely sweater though

    I love that Madewell sweater. Living in Wisconsin and working in a drafty, weirdly heated public library, I feel like 50% of my wardrobe is big old huggy sweaters. It makes me really happy that there are so many great, interesting ones available this year.

    How about a cashmere version?

    • Calypso St. Barth has a 100% cashmere sweater line. I see 3 cocoon cardigan styles online: Uma (hits at the lower hip) and a stripe and solid version of a longer (knee length) cocoon cardigan with pockets. There’s more cardigan styles if cocoon is not your thing.

      I’m really digging the striped cocoon cardigan.

    I second the cashmere version. I live in Wisconsin, too, and love sweaters in many varieties.

    This is becoming “Wisconsin Old-home week”! I was raised there and lived in the nether regions of Minong, where we once had an actual temperature of -51 degrees.I will always be a sweater girl, even though as a GOACA, I’m now constantly warm enough to live through a Long Island winter in a tank top. But I love all of ’em.

  8. Love the blue mohair sweater, it looks so kitten soft. I’m now contemplating the purchase of the Madewell cardi.

    I’ve only just clicked that ‘sweater’ is American for ‘cardigan’ (to me, a sweater is a jumper is a pullover is a jersey). Makes so much more sense now!
