Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1, Blog Tour! {+ a chance to win!}

Last week we released our new book, Kelbourne Woolens: Volume 1, a collection of some of our favorite, and most popular patterns from the past five years. When putting together this anthology, we were able to take a look back and bring some of our favorites like Alice, Give a Hoot, and Hawthorn back to our daily wardrobe, and by giving some of our favorites a new look, it made us look at our closet as well.

We turned to Polyvore, an online-styling website, where people can generate outfits from different online merchants.  From small Etsy stores to large companies like Gap and Madewell, Polyvore takes online shopping and puts it all in one place, allowing the participant to see how that grey sweater will look with those mint jeans.  So, for the Kelbourne Woolens Volume One Blog Tour, we decided to ask some of our favorite shops, designers and bloggers, "what is your favorite item and what would you pair with it?".  So far we've received some pretty amazing outfits, but you'll have to follow the tour to see more!  To kick it off, here's some of our favorites paired with our infinate Polyvore wardrobe, enjoy!

kate

Kate chose to showcase Hawthorn, a simple and feminine cardigan, paired with an adorable pair of mint oxfords and a utilitarian leather purse, this outfit is perfect for a Saturday filled with activity.

Leah planned for a transitional night out on the town, the classic combination of black jeans with a simple white shirt compliments the Rhodalite colorway of the Alice cowl. Throw on a jean jacket and some ankle booties and you'll be set to dance the night away.

maura

Maura was inspired by the need for warmth when running errands on the town during the winter months. She paired the Give a Hoot Mittens with this amazing vintage poncho and fair isle inspired leggings. Add a pair of knee-high lace-up boots and you're set for any temperature!

For Courtney she chose to showcase the Linden Shawl, a non-traditional lace shawl in our Cabernet colorway.  Throw on some mint jeans, black motorcycle boots and a black denim jacket and you're ready to go out to an awesome concert or to a small hole in the wall bar for a drink.
