Monogram Monday

I hope everyone had a great weekend. We had a political fund raiser at La Veranda, a restaurant on the water in Philadelphia. I had to share my newest love--a Lilly Pulitzer sweater. Black sweaters are a key staple in my wardrobe. The ones I currently wear are getting up there in age. So investing in a new cashmere cable knit from Lilly Pulitzer was a no brainer. But the best part is how it wraps around the neck, it reminds me of a retro 60s look which is my absolute favorite fashion era.

Do you have a closet full of black sweaters? What is your wardrobe staple?

  4. I have tons of black sweaters, but you're right, they do need to be replaced often, especially since I wear mine all the time.

    I really love your Lilly one! That neckline is perfection and the 60s are my favorite fashion era, too!

    Have a great week!

  11. I personally prefer navy sweater, so it seems like my closet's always full of those. I do love a good black blazer, though.

  24. After being in Italy, my closet is slowly filling up with all kinds of black wardrobe items. Those Italian women (at least in Rome) really have it all *going on*, which I've decided is going to be my new *go-to* look.

    Besides, if you look good in it then you have a responsibilty to yourself to run with it, LOL!
