Nordic knits and a lot of ice

Snow sweater styleThe Ice Castles MN are closing for the season March 7. I’ve so enjoyed working there with Tiny Diva Princess Party and visiting for photo shoots, but it’s hard to be too sad because this means temperatures are climbing and spring is around the corner. For my last wintery outfit post, I had to share this Nordic knits ice castle outfit.

Ice and WoolWhile icy blue pastels look gorgeous on against the ice, the Norwegian red really pops in front of those blues.

So where do you get such an authentic knit sweater? I inherited this one second hand, so my knowledge of shopping for Nordic knits was limited. Short of flying to Norway to buy one or knitting one yourself, Dale of Norway seems to have some cute options for Nordic knits and they sell on Zappos. For more affordable but less authentic Nordic inspired sweaters, there are plenty available like the ones from this post.

Working at the Ice Castles is definitely one of the things I’ll miss most about winter, but I also look forward to not freezing when I take my blog pictures outside!

Are you looking forward to spring or sad to see winter go?

    I love the lace detailing! I am definitely looking forward to the spring time. As much as I loved all the snow days, I disliked them the same.
