There’s a sweater in the truly excellent book Code Name Verity described as a sort of wooly, orangey red pullover. My copy of the book has tragically gone missing, rendering me incapable of pulling out the exact phrase, but the sweater I’m wearing here seems to be the book sweater’s twin. It’s the pinnacle of what a sweater should be; comforting, cozy, and in a happy color. I found this one at a rummage sale a few years ago. Since then, it has weathered four months of campfires, living in the woods, and cold Vermont nights, college tours, photoshoots, and countless adventures. It’s a comfort blanket, a perfect partner to jeans and a fashion statement, all in one. I teamed it here with some lovely silk pants from Everlane, which made the outfit feel like one’s most comfortable pajamas. To make this look a little less bedtime chic, I added in a pair of heels I picked up from Gap. Honestly, they’re pretty amazing. Comfortable, but still sufficiently fashion-y. Just the right heel hight too.
Have any of you read Code Name Verity? If not, please do. If you have read it, then I can think of no better way to ending this post than “Kiss me Hardy! Kiss me quick!”
