Speaking of sweaters, can I just say? One of the hands-down best parts of home ownership (or, so I hear, of living anywhere outside Manhattan) is the presence of an actual washer and dryer in your house.
There are some pieces that are wardrobe musts, and a lightweight sweater with a gorgeous fit is one of them.
I think this sweater is totally perfect for work, weekend, day, night...you name it.
When one doesn't really go out all that much, and then suddenly one does get to go out - like on, say, a date night with one's husband where canoodling (!) may occur - it's fun to...you know...dress-up.
And when I dress up, I always like to go just a little bit overboard. LBD and subtly elegant extras? I don't think so. Not now. Not today.
Why? Because it's fun to wear animal print...and glamorous, poofy faux-fur boleros...and chiffon bows...and gold sparkle...all at the same time.
Just fun. That's all.
