Often I struggle finding the perfect top to go with a skirt. Do I need to tuck a shirt in or can it just flow? Well, this sweater is perfect for any high waisted skirt. The sweater sits right at the top of the skirt, so the details of the skirt are fully exposed. I found this cropped sweater at a Helmut Lang sample sale in New York, but I’ve found similar options for you!

PS. my skirt is on sale!!!

White After Labor Day?

This is a blast from the past – I wore this Helmut Lang dress to SMU’s first tailgate. Although, I do fully support wearing white after labor day. Pair a cozy sweater with white denim, and you are good to go. Here are a couple of winter white pieces that I think will carry you right to spring. AND note my new favorite nail polish: OPI Taupe-Less Beach.
