I stopped in the J.Crew Flatiron store on a whim with no intention to buy anything but I saw this sweater, tried it on, and couldn't leave without it! Luckily, I ended up asking the manager and got it 40% off and I've been loving it ever since. The fit is perfect and I love the neutral color and apres-ski vibe. 

I thought it would be the perfect thing to wear to brunch with my best friend Caroline at The Wren, the coziest little place in East Village. The restaurant has a sort-of luxury cabin vibe so I felt right at home in my Fair Isle sweater. 

When I say cozy, think tattered leather armchairs, burning candles, and beautiful black-and-white photography on the walls plus a menu full of elevated comfort food that's perfect for the morning after a night out.
