Red Hats and Shoes and Shoulder Raccoons

In case you were worried, it’s not real! The raccoon on my shoulder is only a fake but he’s totally adorbs and super friendly.  His name is Rocky.

This sweater and stripy turtleneck (which you’ve seen before in my post ‘Fashionably Breaking and Entering’) are from one of my favorite french designers, Sonia Rykiel. She’s been called ‘Queen of the knits’ and here you can see why.  Her clothing can be whimsical and interesting but it’s also comfortingly practical.  The sweater and turtleneck are such exquisitely fun things to just throw on in the morning but they also fit like a gem and go with anything.   Here I put them with a Marissa Webb tweed striped blazer and then to frame the whole thing, I added a pillar box red beanie and plush red heels.

Rocky the Raccoon approves.
