Sweater Styling

As we approach the end of summer, I am giving thought of how I want to style sweaters.

Banana Republic. Side tie under one arm is a fresh way to wear your sweater.
Photo: STYLE DU MONDE. The sweater tied over the shoulder as an element of the total monochromatic look.
COS. When it’s not time to stop wearing tank tops but you may need a cover for a/c or a temperature dip.

COS. Another side tide sweater styling.

Pinterest. Wear a sweater over a summer dress.

Nightstand Bed

With integrated lights, storage, upholstery and tables, a nightstand bed is a marriage of form and function. I have seen them in luxurious bedrooms and hotels of varying stars. Ever the design statement, they can be fashioned simply or decadently in a multitude of materials.
