Happy Spring Equinox, World! I think Bostonians deserve a medal of valor for surviving the snowiest winter on record. Also, so does everyone who had to listen to us whine all winter! Instead of celebrating by bombarding you with colors and florals (don’t worry, there will be plenty of that too come!) I wanted to share what I’ve learned this winter, as Mother Nature fits in one more snow squall (it’s snowing outside as I type this!)
Ann Taylor and LOFT make some of my absolute favorite sweaters. They’re soft and comfortable, wicked cute, and super low maintenance. This one in particular may be one of my all time favorites, because I can wrap myself in it on a lazy Sunday and still feel put together, which is a major factor in my working from home productivity. I had around half a dozen “working from home” days this winter, and I’ve found that the feeling great in the right sweater can really help me buckle down and get to work, even when my couch and ten seasons of FRIENDS are calling my name ten feet away. I have wanted to head out to the Natick Mall (about 20 miles outside of Boston) to check out the new Lou & Grey store since it opened a few months ago, and I think this weekend I may finally pull the trigger! In case you haven’t yet heard of it, Lou & Grey is Ann Inc’s newest addition to the family which perfectly embodies the “comfortably confident” look and feel that I have in this particular Ann Taylor sweater. I’ve been perusing their website for ages now, and think I now is the perfect time to go and see the pieces and store for myself! With some of the snow melting and the weather hovering above freezing, I can finally venture out into the world to check out this wardrobe gap I have apparently had in my closet! Lou & Grey’s new spring arrivals are lightweight and perfect for the upcoming warmer weather, too! Though winter may be officially over, I have a feeling wearing sweaters at home is definitely not!
I listed some of my favorite pieces below, and if any of you have any experience with a Lou & Grey store I would love to hear about it!
Have a great weekend, and Happy Spring!
