Daily Mom Style: Plum + Black

Good Saturday morning to you! I hope yours is lovely. The weather has been so incredibly mild here lately that I’ve hardly needed a coat. It’s glorious! I can’t remember such a beautiful fall in like ever.

Today I’m styling this cable sleeve sweater that I picked up at LOFT on their 40% off sale last month. It comes in several colors, but I chose the plum because it’s different from anything else I currently have in my closet, and I thought it would be pretty with my black jeans.

I was drawn to this sweater because of the detailing on the sleeves and the shirttail hem. It’s those small details that make all the difference, isn’t it!? I’m also sharing my new bangles. These were sent to me from Alex and Ani, and I love the color palette.

My nail polish, by the way, is CND Field Fox. I love it with this outfit. I wore my Silpada chevron plunge necklace because I wanted something to brighten up the sweater. I also considered a scarf, but I don’t really have one that would work with this outfit. Perhaps I should remedy that!

I went with black riding boots, although grey would work too. I kind of like keeping the outfit almost monotone, though. The jewelry and the detail on the sleeves is enough pizazz for me.

  1. The sweater is gorgeous Jo-Lynne! Oh how I wish I could justify ordering one!! It is very mild in GA as well, going up to 75 today. Not feeling like Christmas. Have a blessed day!

  2. I love the whole outfit, especially the plum sweater! So bummed that it wasn’t available when I went to order, trying to decide if I want the navy. Love your posts!

  3. You are so classy! Love your style posts! Your poor hubby seeing you so adorable all the time! What I wouldn’t give to have your hand me downs! Wink, wink;)

    1. Ha, a lot of people say that. I send all hand-me-downs to Liberty Thrift, a local thrift shop that has a Christian ministry. But I guess that’s no help if you’re not in our area. 🙂

  4. Hi jo Lynne, you look so stylish as my granddaughter would say:) love your posts and look forward to it. You look great in plum and you constantly give me ideas on. How to wear certain things. I have s petite frame so I have to be careful with some things. But I love the styles you post and make it work for me. Thanks a bunch.

  5. Hi…what size did you get in this sweater…have loved it on you…but now it is a final sale…so I’m just wondering if it runs big/small?
