So many new things are happening over here! Like, that time I threw you for a loop and shared my typical Friday cocktail on Wednesday (do it for #NationalPumpkinDay, right?). Or like this weekend when I led my first-ever workshop on photography & social media! Or like today, where I’m in front of the camera instead of behind it.

And you know what? I was as sufficiently awkward as I thought I’d be. Don’t worry, not at the workshop, I mean in front of the camera. (The workshop did, in fact, go swimmingly). That’s okay though, I’ve accepted it. The being awkward in front of the camera thing. Plus, I simply had to show you this adorable off the shoulder sweater. #worthit

Though it is technically an off the shoulder sweater, you can actually wear it two ways. 1. Like in the photo above, where it’s true to its name – and hanging off my shoulders. or 2. As seen below, where you can pull it up and let it drape over one side, almost like an exaggerated mock neck sweater. For chillier days, option 2 might be the way to go.

Transition season is always one of the toughest, especially up here in the Northeast. In fact, last week, it was 70 degrees. 70. People were outside in short sleeve shirts. I was biking without a a jacket or gloves! And the week before that? It was 40 degrees. Right, we live in a weird, weird place (don’t worry, I still love you, Boston!).

Regardless, transition wear is one of the hardest types of clothing to find. It may be 35 degrees in the morning, but climb to the 70s within a few hours. So, I try to get my hand on versatile clothing (like this off the shoulder sweater) as much as possible.
