THE SWEATER THAT STOLE MY HEART

Details: Light Shawl Collar Topper c/o J.Jill, here |

It certainly doesn’t feel like fall today, but it’s not gonna stop me from sharing another cozy knit today. I probably have like 4 or 5 of the same sweater. I like neutral colors (taupe, brown, black and beige) and a chunky, mock or high collar. When I shop for pullovers I make sure they are petite, but when I’m in the market for long cardigans, I tend to go big and baggy. This heather red shawl collar topper is one cardigan I can’t wait to cuddle up in all season long. It is in fact available in petite and tall, but it still has that nice oversized effect without appearing like I’m taking a swim in some knitwear. It’s a rare color for me, but because it has that heather effect, I can wear it with a variety of colors and garments. I haven’t tried it yet, but I think it would like super cute over a sleek black dress. Putting it on my “to-try” list. I really kept this look simple, with a black top and true blue denim jeans, but it’s easy enough to mix and match. I know I shouldn’t, but I’m eyeing a few more serious J.Jill must-haves including this boat neck tunic in cream,  another topper, this long cardi and yet another topper.

What are some of your favorite fall knits?!

COATIGANS & LEATHER

dsc_0677editeddsc_0690editeddsc_0704editeddsc_0708editeddsc_0718editeddsc_0721editeddsc_0725Details: LOFT Plaid Cape Coat, here | Hue black faux leather leggings, here | Gap turtleneck sweater, similar here |

I’ve always shopped at Ann Taylor, but I was never really a fan of the LOFT until I happened to pass by recently and a few things caught my eye. And I was pleasantly surprised to find a ton of cute sweaters, cardigans, and dresses. They even have activewear from Lou & Grey–really cute, and reasonably priced. I wasn’t even in there 5 minutes before I had an arm full of clothing to try on. I was going nuts, and as soon as I laid my eyes on this coatigan (that’s what they call it, a coatigan; clever right?!), I knew I had to have it. It’s perfect, I love the classic check pattern, especially the light gray, black and beige color combination. For the chilly days ahead, layering it over an extra comfy knit is a must, and this oversized turtleneck from GAP is SO comfortable that I have it another a couple different colors (not sorry). I’m also pretty excited that leather legging season is back. I have several pairs of leather leggings, all from different places, but these HUE leggings are by far my favorite. They are perfectly priced, comfortable and not too heavy or warm. Some leather leggings are so uncomfortably hot that it’s difficult to wear them. It finally feels like I can get in full fall/winter wardrobe and now, I can add the LOFT to my list. Sorry bank account!

MY FAVORITE TWOFER

dsc_0593editeddsc_0610editeddsc_0605editeddsc_0647editeddsc_0648editeddsc_0650editeddsc_0655Details: Circle Scarf Open-Neck Cardigan c/o Zaful, here  | Hue black faux leather leggings, here | Black Sperry booties, here |

I know you’re absolutely tired of me talking about my “chunky knits”, but you’re going to have to get used to it. The Boston fall weather is here to stay and I think there may even be a winter chill in the air lately. Fortunately, I haven’t had to pull out my puffer coat yet, but it’s only a matter of time. In high school, I rarely wore sweatshirts, even though I likely had a dozen as mementos from every family vacation. But I love them; they are the comfort food of clothing. And while they aren’t very flattering and don’t necessarily accentuate the features of your top half, the warmth and coziness are undeniable. This open-neck cardigan with circle scarf attached is the answer to my chunky knit dreams. It’s like wearing a blanket and did I mention, the scarf is ATTACHED?! It’s even long enough to wrap twice, but can also be left to lay across your chest. It’s from Zaful and I have to say, Zaful is the place to go to fulfill your fall fashion needs. There are so many sweaters I’m pining for at the moment. Like this one, this one, this one and this one. I can go on, but I’ll let you get some shopping done.

MY FOREVER SWEATER

IMG_7820 editedIMG_7819 editedIMG_7827 edited 2IMG_7829 edited 2IMG_7834 editedDetails: Zara floral pants (old), similar here  | Banana Republic ivory tank/blouse, similar here  | J. Crew cardigan (old), similar here  |

I guess you can say I’m into the floral and orange combo lately—floral patterns have become a bit of an (unhealthy) obsession for me. And I couldn’t leave out my beloved orange cardigan this spring. This orange beauty has a past, I’ve had it since my junior year of high school  (does that make it vintage?) it has seen my style evolve, through the good and bad—my faithful cardigan. We’ve been through a lot, and its resilience through changing trends proves that it is a timeless piece, thus it has been named my forever sweater. I especially love its large vintage buttons—I mean I didn’t know her, but I feel Jackie O would even approve!
