What I’m wearing:
I’m in love with this cashmere sweater. All cashmere really. There’s just something about the quality, how durable, yet soft it is, that can’t be beat. And it’s versatile too. Of course, traditionally it’s reserved for the colder months of the year, but I decided to start early and styled this white cashmere sweater two ways for the fall. The first look is perfect for a patio date night on a late October night (you know when you can still wear shorts, but want to pretend it’s fall so you also throw on a sweater), and the second look is great for work or a networking coffee. Read on to see how easy both are to style.
Let’s start with the first look. I think sweaters and shorts paired together are actually quite stylish, and are a great way to take advantage of the transitional weather. I stuck with classics here- very basic jean shorts, and black suede booties with some gold buckle detailing. It’s nice that the sweater is looser, as it offsets the tightness of the shorts (this outfit would be equally as good with a looser fit shorts, and when it gets cold, jeans will also do). Vince really does make some the best sweaters out there; make sure you’re checking the tag for cashmere. It’ll cost more, but it’ll be worth it. To recreate the look I’ve linked to a couple Vince cashmere sweaters I’m currently coveting here and here, these super cute shorts, and these booties (obsessed!!).
The second outfit has a more romantic vibe. Must be all the blush, white, and flower print. Usually, I like to balance looser pieces with something that’s fits a little closer to the body, but sometimes you have to break the rules. I think the key to wearing two flowy items together, is to make sure you have a third piece that completes the cohesiveness of the outfit. In this case, I chose my lace-up heeled sandals to do the trick. I want to show you guys that you don’t always have to take risks in small doses; you can make a bold statement with it too. Overall, this feels really soft and feminine to me. I’ve linked some of my favorite blush (it’s having such a moment right now and I think a skirt is such a cute way to showcase it!) skirts here (velvet and blush? Perfect fall combination) and here. I have this one actually and styled it for a cocktail rooftop party). I can see this being the perfect daytime look, either for the office, coffee with a friend, or casual meeting.
I’ve added two more cashmere pieces to my wardrobe recently, and I’m so excited for it to get cold so I can finally style them and show you guys!
Tonight, I’m going to a quick reception with Greg, and then headed to New York City immediately after. I’m so excited; it’s been a while since I’ve been! Follow along on my Instagram and Insta Stories for all the details this weekend.
