Fair Isle, Two Ways.


There is something so wonderful and cozy about a great fair isle sweater. I think it’s that they make me think of my childhood… I had so many cute fair isle sweaters (often, knit by my grandmother… and matching my two sisters’.) Today I’ve teamed up with Old Navy to style this classic fair isle sweater two different ways. I should note that I bought my sweater in the “tall” size… I’ve mentioned it before, and even though I’m only 5’7 (and a half!) I am a big fan of Old Navy’s tall department as I like my shirts + sweaters long and lean.

The first look is perfect for everyday wear, while at home for the holidays. I could totally wear this ensemble to Christmas dinner with my family (we keep things casual and you better believe I’ll be packing this sweater for home!) Just add a few fun touches to dress things up a bit – I love adding a statement necklace and fancy pumps.

The second look is a little bit more casual — this time, I layered my sweater over my favorite plaid shirt, and put on my comfy suede over the knee boots. This look is extra warm, making it great for outdoor activities – holiday shopping, picking out your Christmas tree, or maybe even ice skating. Just add hot cocoa.

    You do the best high-low mixes, Grace. There is nothing a great pair of pumps or boots and a killer bag can’t carry off.
