Our Antidote to the Dreaded Office Air-Conditioning

I’m one of those women who is perpetually cold. You would think this would be difficult in the winter, but I actually find it to be more challenging in the summer when you have to be prepared for two temperatures at all times. There is the scorching hot DC weather, with temperatures that get stuck in the 90s. And then there are the buildings with the air conditioning blasting around 58 degrees all summer. In July, grocery stores become my worst nightmare.

Are you like me? Do you keep heating pads and sweaters at your desk? We find that most women keep a random cardigan at the office, which is fine. We call it “the office sweater”, and like to designate something specific for our clients from what they already own so that they don’t end up ruining the fabulous look we put together with some faded, dated black cardigan. But we have an even better idea.

The MM.LaFleur “Jardigan” is made out of a stretchy knit material that is great all year long (and packs perfectly into a purse without wrinkling). What’s a Jardigan you ask? Imagine the ease of a cardigan with the structure of a jacket. Yes, the best of both worlds. There are two styles: the Sant Ambroeus, which is shorter and perfect over dresses and skirts, and the Woolf, which is a longer, modern look for pants.

For all my fellow ladies who dread the AC, you’re welcome. And if you’re in DC, don’t forget to stop by the new showroom at 14th and K! We’ve been taking our clients there on very successful shopping sprees during their lunch breaks. It is amazing what we can accomplish in an hour at the right store!

Happy Shopping,
