I saw that Isabel Marant Lace Up knit in the window of their store in Soho... I had an iced coffee in hand, was making my way to the Lacoste show and almost stacked it on the sidewalk because, that sweater! Lucky for me the store wasn't actually open yet, and thanks to my reflexes (maybe?) I was able to regain balance and make it on time to the show.
I considered going back once or twice but sadly I had already done my dash in NY and knew that knit was just a little out of my reach. So, plan B! A friend of mine introduced me to this little ASOS number which filled the lace up knit void in my wardrobe perfectly. This is now one of those trans-seasonal pieces that I love to pull out when the weather is a little unpredictable, and it easily makes the transition from weekend to work-day looking equally great with jeans or a black mini and blazer.
Next on my list is this grey lace up from Urban Outfitters, a slightly lighter weight which I'll reserve for balmy evenings and crisp weekend mornings.
