My New Favorite Neutral: Navy Blue

Well, the weather turned overnight, and it feels like fall again. I wonder how long it will last this time… ha! Meanwhile, it’s a good opportunity to share this cozy outfit.

I styled this sweater once before, and today I’m wearing it for more of a casual look. It was an #NSale purchase, so I was thrilled to find it still fully stocked!

Some of you weren’t sure you loved the blouson sleeves when I shared this the first time, and goodness knows I don’t need any extra volume on top, but for some reason I really like this sweater.

It’s all about the details… the ribbed knit with the extra detailing around the arms, the puffy blouson sleeves, and the feminine ruffle mock neck. For size reference, I have this in an XS, so if you order one, definitely size down.

I wore it with my favorite AG legging ankle jeans and accessorized with this double circle pendant from Kohl’s and my David Yurman silver link bracelet.

I love the way the hammered silver in the necklace pops against the pink sweater, and the bracelet is a versatile piece that I wear with many of my casual outfits.

Accessorizing Tip: I have a few higher end designer pieces that I wear often and will have for years — most of them gifts from my husband. Then each season I like to add a few pieces of inexpensive fashion jewelry that are more trendy. When you mix it up, it’s often hard to tell the difference, and blending high and low fashions like this is a modern way to accessorize.

All that said, the purpose of this outfit was actually to talk about these navy suede loafers!

These smoking slippers are from J.Crew, and they’re up to 40% off right now with code SAVEMORE. They broke in easily and never bothered my feet, and I think they’re really flattering.

I’m calling navy my new favorite neutral because these have replaced my usual taupe or nude shoes as my go-to neutral with blue jeans for casual outfits. I love the way they almost match the denim, extending the line of the leg and creating an effortlessly classy look.

The pink creates a nice contrast, but I could throw on any casual sweater or t-shirt with the rest of this outfit, and it would totally work. In fact, I’m planning to wear it today with this ivory v-neck sweater that came in the mail earlier this week.
