Chunky

Time flies. Somehow it is already February into 2015. It is also about that time when those of us who experience the harsh, deep cold in the winter months, are just getting sick of it and are itching for spring to come. As I long for warmer temperatures, I continue slip on those thick layers and chunky knits which by this time is completely tiresome.

I have spent all winter looking for an over-sized chunky grey sweater, since I had to give up my last cashmere turtleneck after wearing holes into the elbows last year. It is just so difficult to find a great quality, slightly over-sized wool sweater with a good fit for a small petite that is also within a reasonable price range. I finally came across this one from Aritzia, which also happened to be on sale. I actually had to go down a size from my regular Aritzia XS so I didn’t look I was being swallowed up, but it totally fit the bill. I am now wearing this constantly until spring rolls around and it gets too warm to wear it.

I guess it’s the perfect time of year to break out these J.Crew Double-Serge Wool skirts that I have. As soon as winter rolls around, I have absolutely no desire to wear skirts; I much prefer trousers where I can slip on some thick tights or leggings underneath. Our summer wasn’t exactly the warmest this year, so I’m not thrilled about the pending winter which is not so far away. Who knew the polar vortex wasn’t going to limit itself to the winter months?? I was so disappointed I actually found myself craving the hot, sticky D.C. summer. Yup, I said it. I miss hot and sticky weather. Grass is always greener, right?
