I've been known to like a sweater or two, so today I wore three: sweater dress, cardigan, sweater tights. There's no such thing as too much knitwear when the mercury drops. Usually I am not so bold with color, but I got a little help with this outfit. I tend to get in ruts with the way I wear things, and in college I used to beg my stylish friend Jen to come over and pick out different outfits for me; lately I've been missing having a nearby girlfriend to help me figure out how to wear certain items of clothing. Foolishly, my friend Lauren (from my closet in sketches) mentioned to me that she's started to do closet consultations and I immediately began buttering her up to spend the afternoon in my closet in exchange for my best lentil soup and homemade bread. It was great to see my clothes through fresh eyes, and Lauren helped me think of ways to style a few tricky pieces and basically catapulted me out of my I-can't-decide-what-to-wear rut that I always fall into early in winter. It was so much fun and made me miss living with girlfriends.
