i know, i know. i live in southern california where it hardly gets cold. my friends living in colder climes are always quick to point out that i am a total cold weather novice. but two things: 1. contrary to popular belief, it does get pretty cold out here. it doesn’t snow, but we’re out on the very edge of the desert, so we end up with pretty extreme temperature drops in the evenings, often dipping below freezing, and 2. despite that, i admit that it really is warm and sunny most of the year, which is why i am all the more obsessed with those rare occasions when i can wrap myself in a cozy sweater. but the truth is, i’m usually not prepared with nearly enough sweaters. so this year, i decided it was high time i started building a better cold weather wardrobe. and this season, one of the first places i looked was the canadian-based knitwear line good night, day.
i’ve followed designer tara-lynn morrison since i first started blogging, and have enjoyed watching her work evolve over time. in many ways, i feel like my aesthetic has grown and changed right along side hers. and i’ve only grown to appreciate her ethical stance in the business even more and more as the years pass by. all of her yarns are ethically sourced, and every single piece she sells is made by her, by hand. her goal is to create classic pieces that will last a lifetime so that you can reduce the amount you buy and contribute to a more sustainable, consciously political, slow fashion movement.
