Sexxxy Librarian Casual Style

Everyone is pretty sick of this insanely cold winter, so my styling post for Sexxxy Librarian week will be focused on warmer weather! Because I don’t know about you, but this last cold spell in Chicago killed any sense of style I had left. Hell – we’re friends here – I’ve taken to wearing fleece lined sweatpants to work to help keep my legs warm on my sub zero walk to work!

Sexxxy Librarian Casual Day Out

But let’s forget about all that for a moment and think about wearing skirts! And wearing cute flats without socks! What I love about Sexxxy Librarian is how you can throw it over a pretty normal outfit and voila! Super cute day out outfit!

I’m bookmarking these outfits and will be wearing them in like 6 weeks. YOU HEAR ME WINTER?! 6 weeks and I’m going out without socks whether you like it or not!

Sexxxy Librarian with Sleeves!

From designer Lilith Ubbelohde: Andrea took the basic shape of Sexxxy Librarian and made it completely her own. Working with Dirty Water DyeWorks in Edna in Tide Pool, a beautiful and rich blue she customized the pattern to fit her preferences. Details can be found on her project page here.

Adjusting the cable used along the side of the collar, decreasing the stitches picked up for the collar and most strikingly of all, adding sleeves!

Such a great mod!

Such a great mod!

I LOVE how the three-quarter sleeves look and really add to the slim fitted look of the sweater over all.

Thanks to Andrea for her beautiful knit and for letting me share this project with all of you!

From designer Lilith Ubbelohde: Deep in the winter cold in can be difficult to keep yourself looking stylish and cute, after a long enough time the idea of a down burrito can sound pretty appealing. I’ve always said I’d really just like to wear a snowmobile suit/onesie just made of down.

Luckily Sexxxy Librarian offers you an option that can keep you warm and toasty while also looking hot.

Textured Brown Goodness!

The side cabling provides waist shaping and structure while also giving you a fun project detail. The cabling is echoed on the doubled cowl neck, a surprise pop of texture, you seam the edge down for a double layer of warmth. Never worry about the wrong side of your work showing in this knit!

For my Sexxxy Librarian I played up the beautiful brown tweed with a cute textured jacket. I keep the whole outfit simple with a dark jean and fashion forward with a simple heeled brown boot. Top your look off with bright bold red lip and you’re on your way to warming your winter up!
