The Daisy Chain Shoulderette is definitely the runaway hit of Yarn Shop Love this year. The poncho is such a great option for alternate cosy outerwear to spice up the long winter months. Meghan recently knit this festive red version in Tundra in Bearberry and Daisy Chain in Chili Pepper, so I thought it would be nice to do a Style It post to show the versatile ways to wear this cute and quick knit!
STYLE ONE: First Friday
First Friday nights are popular here in Philadelphia, with a variety of galleries and restaurants open late for special exhibitions or receptions with tasty snacks and drinks. It is a great way to get out into the city and support local businesses (Meadowsweet Mercantile is a favorite of ours). For this night on the town, a casual t-shirt and jeans is spruced up with leather and suede accessories and a springy phone case to help reduce the winter blues.
STYLE TWO: Cosy Winter Weekend
We have had an insanely mild winter so far (creepily so...it was 57 degrees last week...). Despite the obvious long-term ramifications of global warming, I have to admit, I do not miss waking up every morning and wondering how many inches of new snow have fallen, causing the city to fall deeper into a non-functional panic. (Strong feelings about Philadelphians and winter? Who, me?) One positive result of this cool - yet - tolerable weather is the ability to wear a variety of layers, both knit and otherwise, and be comfortably warm. This outfit is my ideal for winter - warm layers, practical accessories, and a pair of great boots.
STYLE THREE: New Year's Eve
As the years go by, raucous parties on New Years Eve become ever distant memories, but I find it hard to avoid the thrill of breaking out a fancy velvet dress, drinking 1 too many glasses of champagne, and wearing ridiculous shoes. If NYE celebrations aren't your thing, surely an alternate holiday party or trip to see the Nutcracker deserves such glamour.
