So I have to first rave about the boots I'm wearing here. They're Dolce Vita and I am OBSESSED. No seriously. I think I wear them at least four times a week. Excessive? Maybe. But hey! We don't have as much opportunity down here in Texas to wear our cold weather gear like you folks out East do.
What I love about these boots though is their versatility and comfort. I could literally be on my feet all day in these and still be comfortable. It's like walking on a cloud. Okay, that's a stretch. But they are super comfy.
Plus they're on trend by being over-the-knee and all. Fancy.
I'm pretty sure the ones I'm wearing are sold out now, BUT I have found some very similar alternatives. You'll have to check them out below. They are definitely worth investing in.
As for the cable knit, again, I'm going to geek out here... but I just found out there's more to this sweater than just keeping you warm!
Much like the tartan scarf we talked about last week, the cable knit has a pretty storied history itself.
The cable knit sweater originated on the west coast of Ireland to help protect the locals from the harsh Atlantic elements. Traditionally they were 100% wool making them water resistant (not proof- don't get any crazy ideas).
Much like the tartan patterns of Scotland, there were different cable knit patterns to identify those with specific clans and jobs.
For instance, the Cable Stitch, represents a fisherman's rope. I.E. This would be worn by a fisherman. Or the Zig-Zag Stitch, resembling the winding paths of those living and working in the high cliffs.
The pattern I'm wearing is called the Diamond Stitch. It represents those that worked in the small fields off the Aran Islands. Not that I do a lot of work in the fields, but who's keeping track?
What are your winter weather favorites right now?
