I still can’t believe we are halfway through May. With Memorial Day coming up next week, I’m looking forward to barbecues, swim days, and lots of sunshine. The weather has been so unpredictable in the Midwest that I’m longing for warmer days. Lately I’ve been investing in lightweight sweaters to transition my wardrobe to feel just a little bit more like Spring.
Wooden Ships Knitwear by Paola Buendia have the most beautiful yet comfy sweaters, and their knitwear is the perfect addition to a Spring (and even Summer evening) ensemble. I love layering these lightweight pieces over tanks, and can easily be added for warmth to any outfit when the sun goes down.
In all honesty, I am extremely picky about sweaters and have a hard time wearing them unless they are cotton. These are not itchy or scratchy like others sweaters. They are made of an amazingly breathable material to not only be comfortable, but so the sweater keeps it’s ‘slouchy’ laid back style. The Riley sweater is the perfect all cotton sweater with a slight off the shoulder look.
The company’s founders were inspired by old wooden ships and I just love the nautical feel to such classic closet staples. You can read more about this family-owned company and how they give back here. It is pretty amazing.
I can’t wait to wear my Wooden Ships sweaters for Memorial Day and Fourth of July. You can also use code ‘Patrice15’ for 15% off any purchase.
Hope you have a safe Memorial Day weekend with your family and friends,
