It’s hard to believe that this is the last week of August, time seriously flies! The typical August weather didn’t fail to perform, considering these past couple days have been unmanageably steamy. Today, however is clear and crisp which leads me to believe that fall is on the horizon. I’m not trying to rush the fall season into play or anything, but my cutoffs and flip flops are tired and I’m becoming uninspired with my summer selection. I’ve slowly begun my fall wardrobe search and number one on my list are sweaters; you can never have enough. This J. Jill textured-stripes pullover is unlike my typical fall knits, that are bulky and oversized, however it has quickly become one of my favorites. I absolutely love its fit, I’ve realized with time how important it is to find garments that really fit. I appreciate brands like J. Jill, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor that have wide selections of petite clothing. I’ve always been short and my frame is narrow, so the average sweater always seems to look unattractively oversized, draping down well past my torso. This striped beauty is what a sweater is supposed to look like, it hits right above my hip, and is well fitted in the arms and shoulders. I paired it with my light grey wash denim pants to give it an edgy contrast and concluded the look with my d’Orsay flats also c/o J. Jill, which are the most COMFORTABLE flats I’ve ever worn. They come in a variety of colors, giving you the option to mix it up! So when you begin your fall shopping, you don’t have to steer away from the bulky oversized goodness of some sweaters, but keep in mind it’s important to have a selection of pullovers that ACTUALLY fit you well, making your weekend date nights manageable, yet cute in the cold months ahead (omg did I just say that….) Okay forget fall, just go outside and lay in the sun now!!!
