Today I’ve got an easy outfit that is perfect for weekend wear or a casual weekday at home. I picked up this sweater at American Eagle Outfitters last week.
Generally I think of AEO as a store for the younger set, but I occasionally find something that works for me, and the second I saw this sweater, I went right for it. The sales associate who had been helping me said that it just came in the day before, and that all the girls that work there snatched it up on the spot. One girl was even wearing hers, and she came over to show me what it looks like on. I knew right then that this sweater was coming home with me.
It’s just easy and comfortable. If I put a long tank underneath, I can wear it with leggings and UGGs this winter, and it will go great with blue jeans and ankle boots. It comes in Dark Graphite grey and Oatmeal as well as this Berry Jam. I almost bought the cream, but since I have 2 cream ponchos, I decided to go for this bold burgundy.
Here’s a look at the back.
Grey jeans have been on my radar for a while, so when I was shopping at White House Black Market last week and I saw these Saint Honore Grey Skinny Jeans, I immediately grabbed them to try on. I’ve never had jeans from WHBM. I usually buy premium denim, and I’ve never found the jeans at WHBM to give me quite the fit and feel I’m looking for. However, these I love. They fit perfectly, and I like the silky feel to them. I wore them all day on Saturday, and they didn’t stretch out much, so I’m pleased. For size reference, I’m wearing an 8.
The sweater is a small, by the way. I tried on both medium and small, and the medium swallowed me up. I hope this doesn’t shrink too much, but I think it’s the right size.
I carried my black moto satchel and accessorized with silver. I wanted a necklace that filled the neckline somewhat, and this Silpada Duomo Necklace seemed like the perfect thing. Then I just added silver stud earrings and my chain link bracelet and two-tone watch.
For shoes, I grabbed these black suede moccasins because I liked the casual laid-back style with this outfit. They are super duper old. I don’t even remember where I got them, but this Michael Kors Molly Loafer would make a good substitute, or the Minnetonka Kilty Moccasin works too.
