Twist Style Friday: Megunticook
Every Friday we feature one of the garments from the magazine in a post about styling. We suggest different ways to wear the garment in question using mock-ups from Polyvore. We encourage readers to tell us what they think about these outfits via our Facebook page or Twitter, and if folks want to make their own outfits, please tweet them at us with the hashtag #twiststyle. You can find all of the Style Friday posts here.
Happy Friday Twistfans, and welcome to another installment of Style Fridays. Marnie stepped in for me last weekend with a post about our newest pattern Conservatory, and she did such a stunning job!! I'm happy to be back in the saddle though, now that my move is done! I have a new home folks! I spent a *long* time today unpacking and organizing my stash and unfinished projects; I may be developing a medium sized collection of extremely beautiful single socks, including the in-progress first of my newest love, Barolo. I am kind of in love with these socks. Or maybe I should say "this sock" as history tells me I may only make the one.
I had been in housing limbo for a little while, staying with friends until I could find a place I was excited to move into, so I'd been living out of a suitcase and with a limited quantity of my shoes, lipsticks, and clothes. I can't tell you how happy I was to fill my (BIG) new closet with all of my dresses. If you follow Style Fridays, you know that I have a strong (basically exclusive) fondness for dresses. While unpacking I made the somewhat questionable decision to count them all. Folks, I have 87. I could wear a different dress every day for nearly three months without repetition.
This is awesome. You know what else is awesome? This sweater. Check out Megunticook:
Things I like about this sweater include: the little pleat at the sleeve; the low neckline; simple shaping; the textured edges and tie; the easy fit; how it just seems like the perfect thing to wear over just about anything.
Take a look from another angle, would you?
I would like to wear this to the potluck picnic I am going to tomorrow afternoon. Ideally with gingham and maryjane flats.
That idea pretty much inspired the set below.
I thought I might also try something a little dressier, but still kind of breezy and cool.
I think this top could take you all sorts of places. How will you wear Megunticook?
