Sweater Weather, Vintage Style

Even though it's January, we have had very little coat weather around here.  Not that I'm complaining; I love the crisp, sunny 50+ degree days!

 It's the perfect weather to feature a fabulous sweater in style!

A simple pullover paired with winter walking shorts and tights is just right right now!

A ski sweater makes the perfect focal point for a winter day outfit, no snow required!

Tips for buying the perfect sweater from 'Co-Ed', October 1962.

Even though we've made it into January without snow or any true winter weather, I have no real expectation of escaping it entirely.  Just take a look at these photos from the storm dubbed Snowpocalypse, that blanketed (and shut down!) the Mid-Atlantic in February, 2010.

That was quite a storm!  What's the weather like where you are right now?  I would love to hear!

  1. I love those sweaters and the idea of having a long, serious talk with the salesgirl about how you want to wear the sweater. Take her advice!
    Hope you get a nice bit of wintry weather but no snowpocalypse.

  2. Love these Nordic style knits. I'm knitting some socks with a Fair Isle pattern on top at the moment.
    Weather here today in North East UK - bright blue skies, cold and clear, no wind for a change and no best of all snow.

  3. I never wear sweaters but love the Nordic ones, I wouldn't fancy knitting one myself, it would take years! x
