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?!

NAVY KNITS + CORDS

I don’t really know what’s going on with this weather lately, but my wardrobe is just as confused as I am. One minute I’m coatless and the next I’m bundled up to my eyeballs. Fortunately, it looks like we’re going to have a fairly mild Christmas this year. I’m okay with that because I know these temps won’t last long. Despite the wardrobe confusion, one knit that has remained a constant  is this navy shaker-stitch topper from J.Jill. I especially love its double shawl collar and classic shaker stitching. It’s warm enough to wear without a coat (for now) and easy enough to dress up for special holiday occasions.

KNITWEAR PREP

I think I speak for most fall lovers when I say, that layering and chunky sweaters are the best part of a fall wardrobe. Considering  today marks the first official day of fall, I felt it was only appropriate to share one of my newest fall favorites. With the winters we’ve been experiencing, you can never have too many sweaters. This J. Jill mixed pattern topper is unlike my current knit selection, with its unique pattern mix and varying textures. It’s a perfect combination of marled yarns, herringbone and plaid patterns. OH! and cozy is an understatement, plus this topper is so warm  and not itchy like other heavy knits. Once it becomes weather appropriate I fully intend on pairing it with my black leather  pants and booties. I always feel that there’s a huge rush to jump into fall, and I prematurely start busting out my flannels but I think this week’s weather has proven that fall is actually beginning. With that being said, Happy Fall! (Let’s hold off on winter for as long as possible).

Also, since moving to Boston I happily reconnected with an old friend from college who started her own photography business Lindsay Connor’s Photography, check it out— she’s amazing and so easy and fun to work with!
