The weather in Vancouver over the past couple weeks has been quite dreary. We went from going through the polar vortex to having nonstop torrential downpour. I’ve been wanting to go for a jog around Stanley Park for a while nowm but the weather has prevented me from doing so. There’s hope that this weekend will be sunny though, so I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed for that.
My closet doesn’t really have any houndstooth pieces because I often find the pattern to be tacky and too grandpa-like. But, this new sweater of mine from Club Monaco convinced me that grandpa clothes can still be very stylish with a sophisticated appeal. This piece is made with luxurious Italian wool and features a small-scale houndstooth print. Other than wear it with a dress shirt like I did here, I also intend to wear it casually with a tee or more formally underneath a blazer.
