9 Chic and Classic Sweater Options For Women


We’re in full on sweater weather temps here in Connecticut. So today I want to feature these classic sweater options for women.

I’ve recently taken out my sweaters and assessed what I’m keeping and what needs to go (I found a giant hole in a long loved sweater, really hoping it’s just from a snag or pull!) Now I’m looking to add a couple more new sweaters to my collection. It’s always nice to mix things up with my cold weather uniform.

What makes a sweater a classic?

In addition to fit and price, it’s important my sweaters feel good. I’m over trying to make wooly bulky and often acrylic blend sweaters work! No more itchy sweaters!

I’m all about investing in a few quality cashmere or cashmere blends and not having to worry about what to wear underneath.

If you love the layered look in the photo above, the sweater Irina Linovich is wearing is by ROKH  (and her sunglasses are Celine).

I happen to think the whole outfit is SO chic, I’m just not sure how a look like this one would look (and feel) under a coat or jacket…a major consideration here in New England.

I feel the same way about all the cute, long duster cardigans…how do they work under shorter coats?

But I digress…

Home Tour: Shelter Island Beach House Perfection

Thanks so much for all the great feedback on our new beach house!  And, just like last time – I’ll be posting updates on this project, in real time as much as possible, over on my Instagram stories.

One of the best parts of renovating a home (at least for me) is finding beautiful ideas and inspiration. So far, finding design inspiration for this home has been a total joy.

Beach houses are such happy places. I love to gather up all different styles, especially in the beginning phase of a new project. Basically, any beautiful space that catches my eye I’ll file away for further consideration. 

This stunning Shelter Island, New York home is a great example. The current owners fully renovated this Victorian beauty.

All the white paint is the perfect back drop for the intricate details of this historic home.

The back porch is my absolute favorite, it’s making me miss our old home’s porch so much! Luckily, our new house does have a charming, screened in back porch. We’re very excited about this.

The over all style of this lovely beach house is giving me a lot of great design ideas.

I’ve been scouting out similar design elements – like these antique brass sconces. Hoping to use them in our new beach house.

Scroll through to the bottom of this post to see what else I found to achieve this fresh, sophisticated coastal style.
