Wise Old Cowl

I went through several outfits last night before I picked this one.  I was having one of those "closet full of clothes but nothing to wear" moments.  I've been trying not to feed my desire to go shopping for new fabulous fall clothes, and instead have opted to shop my closet more.  I tried one unfortunate outfit only to have The Turk ask "Um, what's with that outfit?"  Point taken: I scrapped it.
 Sweater: H&M
Skirt: Banana Republic
Belt: Anne Klein
Tights: HUE from Macy's
Shoes: Bumper

I love the cowl neck of this sweater.  I've worn it before here.  I loved it so much that I went back and bought it in a few more colors, because I knew it would become a fall/winter staple.

That's a lovely outfit for fall. I am digging the sweater and the belt. You're right, the cowl neck makes the sweater versatile and chic looking. :)

Neutrals look great on you.. and I love how you have the refined skirt on with such a raw and rough looking backdrop for the photo!!

Great outfit- I also like the neckline!!

I love the sweater too. The color is really pretty - and the skirt is a showstopper too!! Is it lace? The texture is perfect.

I just bought a cowl neck sweater dress from ON and I wasn't too sure if I like the neckline but after seeing this, I think I will keep it.

p.s. Thank you for telling Frances she won, that was so funny that she didn't even know!
