Double Knit

After a sometimes balmy week, it’s finally turned pretty chilly here in Pasadena: chilly enough for tights and legwarmers, hurray! This afternoon I was wishing for a long-sleeved dress, so I transformed this summer one for winter with my trusty red sweater. Because this dress is in neutral tones, I like to wear lots of colors with it. I felt a little like Rainbow Brite, but maybe that’s not such a bad thing!

I have been dying to wear my new (to me) blue shoes, and I thought they’d be lovely with these lavender tights. I stepped out on the balcony and realized how very cold it was, so I ran back in to grab my legwarmers. I made these myself a few years ago (and they were so much fun that I made red ones and blue ones too, in different stitches: yay colors!)

My little purple belt is a perennial favorite–it came with a BB Dakota dress, but it has found many other uses! My nails unintentionally match my belt, but they are getting a bit worn down and could use another coat!

My red sweater is actually 100% cotton, so it is satisfyingly chunky and warm without being at all itchy. When I was in Oakland, I lived in it (it was so cold in my apartment!)

I wore my yellow earrings for a little splash of color and because I like to have a small sense of sunshine in these days when it gets dark far too early for my taste (only a few weeks left until the trend turns around!)

In spite of the cold (or because of it!), Eric and I had a lovely weekend, featuring homemade hot chocolate with fresh whipped cream and my all-time favorite Christmas movie, Christmas Vacation. My family knows pretty much every line by heart and uses them all year round: “Bee-yoo-ti-ful, Clark!” 🙂 Hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!
