Must-Have Chunky Sweater for Fall
Hey guys, welcome back to 26 Days of Fall Fashion! There’s nothing that says fall quite like a chunky sweater and a pair of suede boots, can I get an amen??
I like easy when it comes to fashion, which is why I love outfits like this one. There is enough detail in the sweater for it to stand alone, so all I have to do is throw it on with my favorite skinnies tucked into knee-high boots, and I’m good to go.
This Chunky Pointelle Sweater is from the Gap, and I think it’s so super cute. I love the ribbed cuffs and hem, the wide boat neckline, and most of all the pointelle detailing throughout yoke and sleeves. The sleeves are extra long too, which makes it so cozy.
I try to use the term “must-have” sparingly when I’m talking about products on the blog. There are very few must-have items, let’s be honest. But this sweater is truly one of my favorite fall finds so far this year. It comes in 9 gorgeous colors, and it’s made of rayon, polyester, nylon, and alpaca, so it is incredibly soft and not itchy at all. It can be machine washed and laid flat to dry. For size reference, I’m wearing the medium. It is a bit roomy, but I think it’s supposed to fit this way. I wouldn’t want it to be clingy. Also, it is currently 30% off with code STYLE!
I felt there was a lot going on in the sweater so I bypassed a necklace and wore bigger earrings. These Crystal Marquise Drop Earrings are great. They’re lightweight, very affordable, and add a fun hint of bling to a casual outfit.
And then there’s these boots. I LOVE these boots. They suede is super luxe, the heel is the perfect height for comfort and style, and they are so flattering to the leg. Funny thing, I didn’t plan to keep them. (They were an #NSale purchase.) I was just going to photograph a few mirror selfies with them for Instagram outfits, but I love them so much I decided to hold onto them.
Knee-high boots are definitely taking a backseat this year to booties and over-the-knee boots, but these are classics that will never go out of style. Plus, they are weather resistant, which is practically unheard of for suede. They’re UGGs and they have the signature shearling footbed, which makes them super warm and cozy. I guess cozy is the word of the day!
Once again, I’m carrying the Rebecca Minkoff Large Suki Crossbody. I love everything about this bag except that it is awkward to get in and out of. It has a zipper in addition to the flap so it’s kind of cumbersome when you’re trying to get inside of it.
I often pick this up when we’re going out to a photo shoot because it goes with so much and it is just so super cute, but when I want a grey bag to carry for daily use, I usually grab this one. I also have a larger grey satchel that is gorgeous, but I am sad to say I haven’t used it much lately. It’s almost too big for my needs these days.
I usually stick with more neutral lipsticks, but this time I mixed in some of this bright pink Candy Yum Yum to get a color that was a better compliment to the outfit. I should probably experiment more with lipsticks. It does make a big difference to an outfit.
The nail polish I’m wearing is called Winter Glow. It’s a light chalky pink, and it comes in both the CND Shellac and their Vinylux.
I love how these pictures turned out. The day we did this photo shoot, it wasn’t terribly hot outside, and there were some leaves on the ground. It really felt like fall was coming.
Now it’s hot and sticky again and feels like it should be August. I’m in no rush for cold weather, but it sure would be nice to have some crisp fall-like days sometime soon!
UPDATE: Well, I got what I asked for. The day I wrote this post it was in the 90s and humid (I often write my posts a few days ahead) and this morning I woke up to 56 and a weightless breeze. I actually had to throw on a sweater to take my son to school. BLISS!
