Gimme All the Cozy Cocoons

My friend, Meghan, recently celebrated the fifth anniversary of her boutique, m.marie. She had a big open house a few weeks ago, and I scooped up this Olive + Oak cocoon sweater. It called to me from the rack: big chunky knit, neutral color, long enough to cover my butt in leggings; checkity-check-check. When I tried it on and got the nod of approval from my girl, Lisa, it was a done deal.

Now I’m thinking I need a couple more open knit cocoon sweaters to get me through fall and winter; they’re kinda like wrapping yourself in your favorite throw blanket, and I’m alllll about it.

    • Their iOS app is my favorite. It makes shopping both sites super easy (maybe too easy; I order too much, ha!).

  33. I love cozy comfort, too! Love the bag and the gold bling on the wrist, too! I always look forward to your posts! So far my fave blog since I entered blogosphere last March. :) I thought I made that up, but auto-correct just took off the extra g — blogosphere is a word, imagine that! :)

  35. I’ve been wonderng about the praticalities of cocoon knitts and waterfall cardies for a while. I love how long they are but I never manage to put anything warm enough underneath, just a tee. Any ideas?

      I have a jumper that is basically a knitted short sleeved tee shirt in cashmere which is great for layering under my waterfall cardigans. Twin sets and layering woolens is very British :) (with thermal long sleeved teeshirts underneath, Marks and Spencer always do pretty ones)
      If the cardigan is made of wool, it’s usually warm in its own right in my experience

      • I’m allergic to wool but I love the tip about long sleeved tees from M&S and cute tank tops like your cashmere one – thanks :0)
