Gold Sweater

I am not a huge fan of sweaters.  I own them and wear them, but I don’t really love them.  If it is a whisper thin, then I like it a whole lot more, but generally speaking I find sweaters to be bulky and unflattering.  Yet, I keep wearing them.  And apparently buying them.  This is a new sweater I picked up at Ann Taylor last week. I love its gold color, but really dislike the way it photographs.  And it snags.  Easily.  I think I snagged it three times in an hour.  I do think this sweater easily transitions from day to night.  I wore this during the day, but would wear it out at night with dark skinny jeans and a statement necklace. What are your thoughts on sweaters?

I wore this to meet with a client and then to get a massage.  Every time I get a massage I wind up with a huge dent on my forehead that somehow lasts for hours.   So, please excuse my dented forehead.  It was totally worth it.

  1. I think that sweater is great, but I agree I prefer thinner, less bulky sweaters.

    Also, thank you so much for your kind email. If you’re interested in a sort of Throw-Momma-From-the-Train agreement to take care of our idiot physicians, I’m totally in. 😉

  2. Sometimes I feel the same about sweaters – I prefer something a little more streamlined, but the thick ones can be quite a necessity where I live (such as today). I like the looks of this one though – looks great with the distressed jeans and makes them a little fancy; I also love the idea of being able to transition it to evening (because again, winters around here can make it a little difficult to dress for date night…).

  3. I am such a sweater girl! I think it comes with the territory of growing up in Wisconsin in frigid cold winters. But I’m finding that the older and “bulkier” I get, the less chunky my sweaters can be. I’m going for better fabrics, i.e. more cashmere, and more drape. (p.s. I am dying over the “massage dent.” I once stuck one of my little brother’s highchair toys with a suction cup on my forehead on Christmas day when I was around 6, and every single photograph taken that day shows our family, all dressed-up and me with a giant red circle on my forehead!! lol…)
