Fall Must-Have: Cable Knits






(White + Warren cashmere sweater, H&M skirt, Dolce Vita boots, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Accessorize rings)

Taken just after a photoshoot down in Tribeca, I became inspired by the quiet and gorgeous cobblestone streets of the area. It was one of the most beautiful days in the city. I live for the clear skies and cool breeze coming from the Hudson. But now, as the chill slowly creeps back, I feel more and more safe reaching for an easy cable knit sweater before leaving my apartment. I'm pretty awful at predicting the weather just by looking outside! Paired with a high-waisted knee skirt, it's totally granny approved! Sometimes the granniest looks are the chicest. Do mama proud.

You are right about granny clothing is the most chic. I think the way someone styles it can make it work. I love the wash of the skirt and the color of the knit looks great.
