Walking Neutrals

 Sweater - Handmade by reader Sonja
Tee - thrifted
Jeans - Levi Strauss, thrifted
Ride boots - Cydwoq
Scarf-as-a-hat - thrifted

Feeling very unlike myself lately leads me to being a chameleon. Thankfully my closet is adaptable like I am. Today I am channeling the lovely Joni of WalkingColors, a beautiful blogger and a customer. Her style appeals to me greatly, always well thought out, modern, and unique. I didn't employ her lovely use of color, but instead focused on her hat, layering skills, and jewelry.

Clearer shot of the sweater. Sorry for the blurry full length.
There are doors on the garage now. Gotta re-learn the light.
And further thanks must go to one of my readers, Sonja, who gifted me with this gorgeous wool sweater that she made. It is truly one of the most beautiful things I own, soft and airy, but really warm despite it's lightness. I've been anxious ever since summer to wear it. The grey color with the open weave reminds me of chainmail. I cannot thank her enough.

And to top things off, my jewelry from my blog-sisters.


PS. My posts have gotten a lot more picture heavy recently. Do you all prefer the addition of detail shots?

  3. Wow, what a beautiful sweater! I used to have a similar one - though not as nicely handmade as that - and I miss it. I love your hat and all the layers too. Layers are my favorite at this time of year. I like the detailed pictures too. Nothing wrong with that at all, I sometimes think of doing more of that sometimes.

    Thanks again for chatting with me last night - thankfully the hubby wasn't cranky when he finally rolled in, just super tired. Hoping he has a better day today.

  12. What a beautiful jumper, Sonja is very talented. I like the detail shots, it is nice if you can point out the lttle details... Keep them, please!

  13. Way cool, and a further reminder that I need to do something with all the knitting wool I have sitting in Rubbermaid coffins. I'm also crazy about that hat!

    I appreciate the detail pics, and have been considering doing some myself, as my accessories often get lost in my cruddy poor-lighting photos. (Probably I should just bite the bullet and get an electrician in to improve the lighting in here.)

    I love your turban. It's magical. :-)

  20. First of all that sweater is gorgeous. I have one very similar, almost identical color too, from The Limited. I love how you are monochromatic but fresh & modern. You gotta teach me how you turned a scarf into a hat. =)

    Love the last 3 shots of the jewelry and girl you are so lucky for all the free packiages you get from your blogger friends. =) My favorite is that 3-finger snake ring, love it.

  21. Hey Megan,
    how nice to see my sweater online. It was a good decision to send it to you, you look absolutely stunning in it! And I understand this chameleon-thing, sometimes I want to bring out a different part of me every day.
    Hugs!
    Sonja
