Sunday Styles no. 2

Sooo, autumn came and then left again! It's another hot Sunday here in Los Angeles, but this past week had many magical moments of chilliness, scarves, hot beverages, crisp air and morning dew. (Let me spell it out for you: I miss New York City in October.)

With that said, today's Sunday Style is a shoutout to my New York friends! (And those of you who are actually experiencing autumnal weather right now.) Definitely a little less menswear and a lot more...sheep.

Pretending it's cold outside.

I love a good sweater...especially one that's thin and warm. It's the type of sweater you can throw a jacket over without feeling like you suddenly have no elbows or that you can't lay your arms at your sides because there's too much knit bunched up in your armpits. (I'm talking to you, cableknit!)

This sweater in particular is my new favorite thing. I never knew how much I loved sheep until I saw it and now I have to fight not to wear it everyday. (The return of the LA heatwave is making that an easier decision.) What's more, these sheep are wearing socks. Bestill my heart! Sock-wearin' sheep in a heap! I'd like to meet whoever designed this sweater and give them a hug, a high-five, or a handshake, depending on their comfort level with complete strangers.

So, take this holy grail sweater, pair it with my favorite jeans and a stylin' head wrap (a.k.a "Lazy Nami is growing her hair out and can't figure out how to style it right now" wrap) and you got yourself an easy Sunday look perfect for a brisk walk through the park with your hot coffee (or chocolate...mmmmm.)

For all of you who are enjoying chilly weather today, hope you have a cozy one!
...and for those of us sitting in the LA heat? Hope you're stayin' cool! xo!

  1. I've been drooling over Madewell's sheep sweaters, I'm totally obsessed with sweaters of all kinds lately. I really like the way you styled yours and your loafers are adorable! >^__^<

    1. Nina!!!

      I was just at Madewell today in search of their OTHER sheep sweater (yes, there's another one!), but, alas, they didn't have it. Booo.

      In other news, totally just checked out your blog and, HELLO, can we say "new girl crush!" I'm obsessed with that vader sweatshirt. Way to rock the geekiness. I'm one myself. Most nights, you'll find me curled up on the couch, playing Skyrim. I'm currently on the hunt for some choice Star Wars iphone alert sounds as well. Anyway, you get the picture. I'm totally feelin' your blog. It's awesome.

      Thanks for stoppin' in and glad you liked the outfit. I'm trying not to wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY. :) Keep up the good work on the blogging and thank you SO much for checking out mine. It really means a lot to me!

    2. Thanks for checking my blog out! So you're a geeky gamer? That's cool! I suck at video games -- I played Epic Mickey last year and got an EPIC headache because the camera angles are all wonky. I do love the Lego games though (mostly because you just break stuff) :) And are you talking about the burgundy sheep sweater at Madewell? I've been drooling over it since I saw it a few weeks ago in San Francisco! I kept showing it to my boyfriend, like, "OMG, look how cute it is! AND IT'S BURGUNDY!"

    3. It's probably better off that you "suck at video games." They just end up taking over your life, so it's not worth it. Oh, the hours I've spent playing videogames when I could have been doing more productive things!

      As for the sweater, yessssss! I'm totally talking about the burgundy sweater! I haven't been able to track it down yet, but I'm hoping to figure it out soon. I would order it online, but I feel like I need to try it on before I buy it. Two sheep sweaters is a commitment.

      Speaking of showing boyfriends things, I was showing my husband your Vader sweatshirt and freaking out. I was all, "HOLY CRAP! I NEED TO CHECK OUT THE MEN'S SECTION OF H&M MORE!!!" I hope to one day find something as cool there. Amazing. Love that damn sweatshirt!
