When I was younger I used to beg my mom to let me jump in puddles barefoot.  Only sometimes she would say yes and I thought it was such a special treat to wander around the yard by myself and walk through the mud!  I still love the rain, but as an adult I tend to dress a little more appropriately for the weather.  Flat waterproof shoes, clothing that doesn’t skim the ground, a soft sweater, and my bubble umbrella are my choice favorites.  Duchess prefers the look of a classic yellow rain jacket, or she just enjoys being the center of attention, we’ll never know.  Either way, she’s always jumping in puddles barefoot.

Knit-wear can be tricky.  Yes, it’s very cozy, but there’s always the potential of an itchy, bulky, Grandma-esque sweater situation.   I prefer to wear a lightweight sweater with a tank underneath to minimize the bulk, and I always look for soft fabrics, such a cashmere, to avoid constant fidgeting.  That’s why I love this sweater from Lord & Taylor.  It’s thin, velvety soft, and very modern with the color blocking and asymmetric hem.  It meets all my knit-wear needs!
