The weather has finally taken a turn for the slightly-cooler in sunny Dallas, Texas. Finally! I love this time of year: slight chill in the air, no longer sweating whenever you’re outside for more than 3 minutes but not quite cold enough to prohibit you from sitting on a patio at lunchtime… it’s perfect.

This is the comfiest sweater like… ever. I bought it a few months ago and essentially haven’t taken it off since. The elbow patches kinda make me feel like Basil in The Great Mouse Detective (totally reasonable feeling). I love pairing this sweater with my vest (yeah, the one I snaked from the men’s section at J.Crew) or with a big, comfy scarf (or with both!)… or even with leggings and camp socks for lounging around the house.

I’m currently in Austin to see the Austin Lyric Opera‘s production of Verdi’s A Masked Ball tonight! I’ve heard it’s absolutely incredible, so I cannot wait to see it (ps tickets are still available for tomorrow’s matinee performance – individual ticket prices start at $15). Verdi’s operas tend to be some of my favorites – with his La Traviata being my all-time favorite – so I have pretty high hopes for this evening. I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

Have you gotten into the elbow patch trend yet?
