Cardigans: cozy. Blazers: polished. Why not combine the two and look put together while still being snuggly and warm? This cardigan features knitted lapels like a blazer, but it’s a bit oversized and bulky to keep you cozy all winter long. Belt the middle for a more work-ready look. Read More 

Blocks of lace in muted jewel tones come together in this scarf that is warm and fun to twirl. Color blocking is made fun by working a lovely lace stitch throughout the entire scarf and finished off with chunky tassels. Read More
