Sometimes inspiration strikes in the strangest places. Back in February, I was lined up at the start of the Rock 'N' Roll Half Marathon in St. Petersburg, Florida, wishing that I had dressed for the 34-degree temperatures (seriously, Florida in February? I was expecting IDEAL running weather) when I noticed a woman just ahead of me wearing an awesome purple, white, and yellow running jacket. I was struck by the unexpected color combination, and I practically warmed myself up thinking about how I could design a sweater with those same colors.
Fast forward (some might say "slow forward") five months, and here is the Volta Place sweater! I love the colors just as much as I did that cold morning in Florida. I think they're both sporty and surprising, and I adore the two little pockets in the front, as well as the slightly mismatched sleeves.
