I think the Groundhog didn’t see his shadow on February 2nd. And that means an early spring? Or does it mean 6 more weeks of winter? I grew up in New Hampshire and have always found this very confusing. In New Hampshire, if spring starts in mid-March, that is an early spring. Regardless, the take-away for The Directrice (the blog, not the person) is that we only have a few more weeks to show heavy winter clothes.
Let’s make the most of it, shall we?
Behold a jacket that is technically a tweed, but looks like a marled knit, worn over a sweater that is unequivocally a marled knit.
For those who are curious, a marled knit is made from marled yarn. Marled yarn is made by combining different strands of thread (called plies, e.g., 3-ply embroidery floss) and the end result is a knit product that has color variations. Black is typically used in marled yarn and you may be able to see that my sweater is red with black mixed in.
If you come a little closer, you may be able to behold this marling I’ve described a little better.
You will also be able to see my scarf (you’ve seen it before), which provides an elegant finishing touch and a little warmth around the vulnerable neck. I like having my neck covered when it’s cold.
Even though this fabric is visually complex, the black trim works.
The Photographer and I are usually all business when taking pictures because I am a busy lawyer and he is a busy writer. But there are times when we horse around. Sometimes there is play-acting.
