There are few things I delight in much more on cool fall days than throwing on a giant, cozy, chunky-knit sweater.  There are few things I delight in less on cool fall days than realizing after shoving my head through aforementioned comfortable deliciousness that I now have to put on pants (or a skirt or whatever) before facing the world.  The dichotomy of your upper half being swaddled in the soft and ever-forgiving embrace of low-gauge knits while your lower half is suffocated by… well anything that’s NOT a low-gauge knit, especially on a Monday, can often be too much to bear.


Enter this glorious sweater SKIRT.  I’ve seen numerous iterations of knit pencil skirts before and have commonly found them to be too body-skimming (read: awkward) to wear to the office.  This one, however, is a Monday morning dream come true.  It’s cozy, it’s forgiving, it holds its shape well, it’s a great neutral, and it has a sort of Angelina, but not too Angelina, side slit for a little stylistic oomph.  Sign me up.
