California Winter Outfit

One of the things I like the most about living in California is its warm winters. Back in my native Ukraine winter seasons are harsh. Brrr! 

On a warm and sunny day like today, all I needed was a light sweater, jeans, a pair of boots (don't really need boots to keep my feet warm, rather for fashion reasons) and a warm... Hmm, I'm not sure what to call it... An oversized infinity scarf? A cowl? A shrug maybe? Or even a poncho?

Whatever the name should be, I love this new crochet piece! 

It's lacy and light, but at the same time it's warm enough to keep me comfortable on a California winter day. 

I like how bright it is. 

But as I look at these pictures, I think my outfit is lacking one thing - a necklace. A short but chunky piece in a matching color would make my outfit complete. Ha! Now I have a reason to go shopping. 

I hope you all are having a nice day no matter what the weather is like in your neck of the woods.

My new pattern is available here and here

  1. Oh, what a great idea! I love to wear a shawl, but they are hard to keep on if you get active and move the arms a lot.

  2. This is great! The color and the pattern are magnificent!
    Little bit jealous of your 'wintertime' though, overhere in Belgium, Europe, it's been freezing cold the past few days.
    But this piece of crochet would be great for our springtime!
    Have a nice day, Sigrid

  3. Dear Olga. I am glad that you have such nice weather but severe winter also has its charm :) Now, in Poland, we have, several degrees of frost and wonderful, white, fluffy snow. I love this weather :)
    Your scarf is beautiful. Favorite color of my younger daughter.The perfect outfit for shopping. Best regards and I look forward to further your work crochet.

  4. Your crochet 'whatever' is looking very pretty and stylish !! :) You are a yummy mommy :)

  5. Piękny szał.Bardzo ładny kolor.Nie wszyscy mogą mieć tak ciepło. U mnie mróz i dużo śniegu.Pozdrawiam

  6. Very pretty. I always love this style or a poncho but I like a shoulder bag which is awkward.

  7. I think you look pretty adorable without the necklace.

  8. I think your shrug-cowl is stunning enough without an accessory... But don't let me ruin a reason to shop!

    Ooo, you could add a sparkly shawl pin!

  9. Gorgeous color and very pretty cowl/shawl/poncho/whatever :)
    You are looking very smart in it. Yes, go ahead and buy that necklace, you deserve it. Have a nice day. Love.

  10. Awesome! It's so elegant on you! I love the yarn you used and the color!
    Have a fabulous week!
    Hugs and love from Portugal,
