Hello faithful readers! We are sorry we didn't post an accessory on Friday. The Shirt Snob had a conference to go to, and we didn't leave enough time to pack! And moving around with the big pregger belly is getting harder and harder to do. We hope to make it up to all of you with this cute top. The Monterey Sweater by Ya-Ya is great for those of you who still want sweaters, whether it's because you live in a colder area or just like them. Made of a rayon and linen mix, this cardigan is crocheted, has a draped collar and a belt that goes around the waist. There is tassle detail at the ties, wooded bead detail at the sleeves and edges, and wide sleeves. This is a great sweater to throw over your favorite top.

Boy does the Shirt Snob wish she was going on vacation soon! It is so cold up here! Sure they say the temperatures will go up higher than the ever do in January later this week, but we can't concentrate on that fact now when we're shivering and afraid to leave the house it's so cold and icy. For those of you more lucky than us, check out this new top, the Beach Comber Sweater in Lagoon by LaRok. This cotton and cashmere mix has bead and embroidery detail and the scoop neck, behind the neck, at the cuffs and at the bottom hem. There is also a tie at the neck. There are elbow-length sleeves and a 2 inch slit at each side. Also comes in coconut.

Here's a cute sweater that the Shirt Snob would love to wear. It might actually fit around the big pregger belly! The Long Circle Sweater by Cue & Emm is very simple but with a twist. There is one clasp by the bust, but instead the usual button, it's held with a chopstick. You won't find many other shirts with a chopstick on it! It is made of a mix of cotton, acrylic, and wool, has cables on the front, and ribbing along the collar, down the front to the bottom hem. The back has a neat design of a circle knit into the sweater like a bulls eye, hence it's name. You can wear this sweater over a cute tank or cami or a long sleeve shirt.

Watching football last night, the Shirt Snob heard that it was 10 degrees in Chicago. This made us want to bundle up just imagining it, even though we are lucky to be in above freezing weather right now (although barely). Therefore, the first thing we did this morning is find a cute sweater that all of those in the freezing temperatures can wear. The Sleeping Beauty Sweater Coat by Free People is a beauty! You will definitely feel like a princess in this sweater! It has a lovely, romantic looking knit design that would go great over anything. Wear it with a dressy outfit or with a pair of jeans to instantly look a little more dressed up. This sweater is very long, has a ribbon closure that ties in front under the bust, an dis made of an acrylic, nylon, and alpaca blend.

Here is a sweater that the Shirt Snob almost overlooked. It seemed a little weird to us at first. But once we sat and considered it, we actually decided that we love it. The Drape Collar Cardigan in heather cinder by Vince is a great way to spice up your sweater collection with something flirty and a little more feminine than most. The sweater is 100% cashmere, has long sleeves, and 1/4 inch banding at the edges. The drape collar is what stands out on this top, giving it a little something extra. Also comes in black, white, mahogany, cappuccino, and heather port.

The Shirt Snob loves cashmere, I'm sure we've told you all that many times before. Well, here's another sweater made of 100% cashmere that is perfect for the winter, and any holiday gifts that the men out there may want to buy for the women in their lives (hint, hint). The Cashmere with Lace by Paul & Joe is soft and snug, you just want to curl up by the fire in it. The sweater has 2 inch lace banding across the front under the bust line, and 1 inch banding along the V-neck. The knit texture varies throughout the sweater as well. We love the color of the sweater, it's so fresh that you can almost pretend that spring will be here soon, instead of in over 3 months!

The Shirt Snob is a huge fan of hoodies. You should see our closet, there must be at least 15 in there right now. Here's one that we think you'll love, it's fun and definitely not boring. The All Over Print Cashmere Hoodie in black by L.A.M.B. is a great way to stand out while still looking and feeling comfortable, which to us at least is very important in this cold weather. Made of 100% cashmere, this hoodie has a zipper closure in the front, as well as pouch pockets. There is 1 inch banding on the hood and 2 inch banding at the cuffs, with fringe detail cuffs and bottom hem as well as the hood. All over the entire piece is print detail. Also comes in moss, white, and red.
The Shirt Snob has found another sweater that we want, and this one might even work over the large pregger belly! The Cutaway Crochet Top by Vince is a cardigan, so you can wear it either as a top over your shirt or as a jacket. The sweater has a shawl collar, ribbed banding at the front and bottom hem as well as on the cuffs. It is knit loosely, so there are holes all throughout the sweater where the banding isn't. It's also made of a great mix of alpaca, cashmere, and merino wool, so it's super warm and comfortable. Besides charcoal, it also comes in camel and coffee. If you like this you might also like the Cutaway Cardigan also be Vince in monk and wheat.

Here's the cutest sweater ever. Really, we mean it. It is so classy and put together, wearing this would be a huge confidence boost for any woman. The Knit Sweater by LaRok is what we would want for Christmas if we didn't have a forever growing belly that would never fit in this snug piece. The sweater have 3/4 length sleeves, pockets in the front, four silver clasps, and tiny eyelit holes throughout the knit piece. The knit design is actually quite complex and beautiful with wavy horizontal lines throughout. Comes in two colors, ivory and heather grey.

What woman doesn't love cashmere? How about jewels? I love this next item because they both are represented, and in such a beautiful way. The Cashmere Jeweled Crop Cardigan by Cynthia Steffe would be at the top of my holiday wish list if only my pregnant belly would fit into it. This sweater has a high rounded neckline, snap closures in the front, and is 3/4 length sleeved. But it's obvious what makes this sweater so wonderful, it's the detailing, made up of velvet flowers with beaded leaves that are on the neckline, hem, and down the front. They are colorful, fun, and yet still very classy and lady-like. This cardigan comes in two colors, chocolate and eggplant, and the best part is that it's on sale!
