I can’t just let everyone else have all the fun! Ann Leachman took her cabled pullover from cold weather to warm weather wear, and I thought it would be even easier to take my New Girl skirt into summer as well! And since here in the Midwest we are all still bundling up against this early spring freezing spell, I thought it would be nice to look at tank tops and flip flops and dream.
This skirt is so fun you barely need anything else to make your outfit pop. Throw it on with an easy solid color tank, comfy flats and matching sunnies and you are ready to hit the town looking amazing!
Take your New Girl on a date night by pairing it with a flowy, see through top with fun textured bandeau top underneath. Strappy sandals, a small shoulder bag, and a fun geographic necklace complete this fun summer night look.

We’ve all gotten a little carried away styling our favorite 2012 Holla Knits designs! Today’s post is all about Jennifer Dassau‘s design from the Holla Knits Fall Collection, Jilted.
From Jennifer: A high waisted pencil skirt in banker grey pairs with a slim polka dot blouse to balance the cropped fullness of Jilted. Add tasteful jewelry and a pop of oh-so-current mint, and even a bright color like Fairytale can go to work.
A crisp cotton blouse and skirt with pleats at the hips contrast nicely with the soft, cropped fullness of Jilted. Add classic pearls and a watch, then keep the look from going too safe with printed tights and stacked heel patent oxfords.
I’m not a great accessorize, so I love Jennifer’s use of jewelry in her boards!
Today’s guest stylist is Jessica Dekker of Making This Now, who’s finished Jilted, pictured modeled by Jessica above, is clearly super amazing! She styled her board the way she wears her Jilted – leggings and boots. Simple and stylish!
Me? I’m taking Jilted super casual and throwing this oversized sweater on over my gym clothes on a chilly morning. And that way when I stop to the grocery store on the way home from the gym I don’t have to feel ashamed of my grungy gym outfit.

More fun styling posts? Sounds good to me! Today designer Ann Leachman of Magical Grammar takes another look at her beautiful cabled Henri pattern from the Fall Collection, and talks about how to take your winter knits into spring.
I don’t know about the rest of the country, but it is still very much winter in Chicago. I left this morning without the usual giant scarf, and walked home this evening with snowflakes landing on my neck. These lingering winter weeks have done nothing but fuel hours of daydreaming about Spring’s arrival. To feed my springtime desire even more, I thought it would be fun to come up with a few different ways to style the Henri sweater into the warmer months… because they are coming (…..right??).
Imagine a day with absolutely no plans, no obligations, just hours of freedom ahead of you. The sun is out, there is no need for a coat. You throw on a pretty outfit (I love the effortlessness of a baggy sweater combined with the femininity of a maxi skirt. It’s one of the most put-together ways to feel like you’ve wrapped yourself in a blanket), and start walking. As you’re wandering around the city aimlessly, you stop in a coffee shop, order a giant cup of coffee, and spend hours making life lists in a notebook. By the time you’re heading home, the sun has set and the temperature drops enough to warrant your favorite knit scarf. It’s the perfect day.
After falling in love with Mamatronic‘s finished Henri on Ravelry, I knew I wanted her to play along, too. Here are Michelle’s awesome stylings:
While the weather is breezy and unpredictable, Henri is the kind of pullover I’d keep with me on a Saturday of window-shopping or bike riding. It’s equally appropriate for wearing to meet friends or on a long weekend ride. Paired with a skirt or capris, bright accessories, and some tennis shoes, it easily makes the transition to warmer weather. I can throw it on, tie my hair up in a scarf, and fly down the road without another thought.
