Well, I think that’s a wrap on winter in Houston. It’s back up in the 70s and even low 80s, but cool in the morning and evening. So what does that mean? It’s sweater weather once again! I love living in a climate where we such beautiful and mild weather from fall until spring. Now the summers are something else altogether, but I’m going to keep on the sunny side and enjoy these humidity and mosquito-free days as long as they last!
J.Jill has a new collection every month, and almost all of them include a “topper”. Some are thicker and warmer, and some, like this one, is just perfect for the weather we’re having right now. It’s also a great coverup for when I’m running to-and-fro the studio where I work out, especially if I walk my kiddos into school.
I’m wearing it over my trusty distressed skinny jeans and my new Superga sneakers, also from J.Jill. I once spotted a similar pair on a friend at school, and I knew I needed a pair in my closet. They are kind of a grown-up version of Chucks. A little preppy and super comfortable. I ordered a 1/2 size up and I’m happy I did – they are a bit on the narrow side. I wear them with a no-show sock by Sperry – the best ones I’ve found so far that don’t slip off my heel and curl up in the shoe when I walk.
Shop quickly – this sweater is super popular and nearly sold out online. Check your local stores – they may have it in stock!
