It was brought to my attention yesterday by a reader that even though we're very much in cool temperature territory (cheers to the few flakes that fell yesterday morning!), I have continued to recommend tops more appropriate for Spring and Summer than Fall and Winter.
And of course, she's right, because quite honestly, I don't "do" cold weather tops. Whenever I start to get a case of the chippy nippies, which is often, I just turn up the heat -- a miserably uncomfortable habit to which both my dog and work colleagues can attest.
I recognize, however, that just because every blouse/shirt/sweater I own is either 3/4-sleeved, short-sleeved, cap-sleeved or sleeveless doesn't mean every blouse/shirt/sweater you would like to own is of that same sort as well.
So, I've done my do-gooder duty and compiled for you a collection of what I consider to be office-suitable Winter tops.
