“The color line has reached the north” wrote John T. McCutcheon, a famous cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune in the early 1900s.

Wednesday brings another new Florentine outfit! This long knit sweater is just perfect for a cold day in Chicago. I paired it with black 50-50 over-the-knee boots, dark jeans and a black belt for a polished winter look.   Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
