1979- Smashing Pumpkins
What's better on a crisp fall day than layering a bunch of knits, one on top of another until you're as snug as a bug? I was deliciously cozy wearing my many layers this evening while running my (last minute!) errands. I love both this crochet dress and the knit sweater so much, it had never occurred to me to mash them up together though, until I found a gorgeous photo of an outfit full of knit pieces. Lightbulb! 

Crochet Dress: French Connection, Knit Sweater: Urban Outfitters, Grey Scarf: Ralph Lauren, Camel Desert Boots: Liz Claiborne via Winners, Grey Knee High Socks: Dollarama, Turquoise Earrings: Aldo

Time is flying by, in a mere 4 days I'll be heading out on my France trip!! Which I'm so thrilled about (and also secretly terrified for! I've never been traveling by myself, but I've heard it's something everyone should try...wish me luck!) There are a million loose ends to tie before then, hence the blogging absence :(. But I think I've almost covered everything... even lining up a few posts while I'm away! Now excuse me while I pat myself on the back lol! 


  1. I love knit layers!!
    I'm so jealous of your trip..I hope you have a great time tho!

  2. This is divine! Layering knits is the best part about this season. I mean hell, I've even taken up knitting as a hobby! You look gorgeous Louise. I love the soft, light neutrals.
    Traveling by yourself will be the most amazing experience. I count it as one of the most incredible, eye opening experiences of my life. I'm so excited for you. See you on Friday! xx

  7. Where in France are you going? I loved loved Arles, Leon and Avignon even more than Paris!
    Love your chunky scarf I have plenty of scarves but not as warm as that!

  8. If you don't post before, have a fabulous time! France is gorgeous!
