Margaret O'Leary's Color-Soaked Lookbook Makes Us Want To Bundle Up

We all know how tricky Mother Nature can be around here. Even though we may want to shop for hoards of mini dresses and graphic shorts, come summer, we end up giving in to the chill and coughing up dough for sweater, scarves, and other items fit for fog-filled days. Sigh.
But lucky for us, knit-maker extraordinaire Margaret O’Leary crafts cozy, one-of-a-kind pieces that are made for myriad temps. And the S.F. designer keeps the sweet stuff coming in her fall '12 lookbook, which has "made for S.F." written all over it.
The enchanting images feature a fiery-haired model in an array of comfy pullovers, bright denim, and floor-sweeping skirts. “For fall we are embracing the effortless California lifestyle with sweaters that draw inspiration from [pieces ranging from] Ireland’s fisherman cables to the Left Bank's pearl jacket," explained O’Leary. "There is also a slight tribute to the Southwest.”
We can't wait to cuddle up with some of these made-for-S.F. staples. Click through to see the vivid lookbook and wow-worthy creations (and get ready to mark your calendars — you're going to want it all).
