Sweater Weather

I’m all about sweaters for fall and when I find a perfect one, I will absolutely wear it to death until every combination in my closet has been attempted, really maximizing its utility. This particular one, I actually found sort of by accident, though I had been looking for a long oversized throw for a long time.  There I am at Bloomingdales, and in the very last corner, there’s a Free People sale, and on one of the very last racks, there’s this sweater, and in my size. It was meant to be.

Free People actually makes really nice casual clothing. They’re vibe is very boho and carefree, which forces me to take some risks with my clothing, which I really like. All their details are a bit lacy, a bit see through, a bit just threw this on without thinking about it, but still look fabulous. I highly recommend testing them out for your next girl’s brunch or date.

I paired this white sweater with a red dress and love the contrast in colors. Both hues are applicable for fall, and this look is a great transition for that weather right in between hot at cold. The dress, which is from Zara and has cool lining and cut details, makes me reminisce of summer, but throwing on the sweater keeps it current and fall ready. Since I was headed to the office, I slipped on a pair of classic black heels from Coach and my Michael Kors watch, and viola! I think that this is a little unexpected for the office, while still being appropriate, which is a great way to break up the sometimes monotonous pattern of pencil skirts and blazers for work.

I can’t wait to incorporate this piece for the fall season and well into the winter months. It’s awesome for layering, has a wonderful soft white color, acts as a neutral, and is so versatile. What more can you ask for!
