winter knits. the good and the bad.

Well, it is getting a little nippity out. I look outside in the morning and there is frost on the windshield of my car. Fun right? (Sense my sarcasm?) 

So with the cold, wintery weather coming around it is now time to get in to the warmer, snuggley clothes. That means knits. (I am using a lot of adverbs today, aren't I? Geesh.)

Knit sweaters, knit scarves, knit ear warmers, knit leggings.

That also means potential fashion DISASTER. Or fashion love. Here is your go-to guide with what not to wear this winter, and what to wear. (At least when it comes to knits) Enjoy.

First off - Don't wear this. "But Rach, it is so cute!" No, no it's not.

Chain Scarves. I love knit scarves, but not this. It just doesn't work.

The infamous ugly sweater. This is only acceptable at ugly sweater parties. 

Knit Necklace - Ahhh. Cozy, right? 

Okay, okay. Now on to the cute stuff. Are you excited? I am.

Ear Wamers. My favvvvvv. 


Over-sized sweaters. A definite winter staple. Mmh.

Okay, I want these leggings so bad.

And of course you can't forget the lovely scarves! 

What is your favorite (or least favorite) winter knit?
