Good morning, and happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a fabulous Fourth. Today I’m styling a gorgeous teal sleeveless sweater outfit for summer, and this sweater is also a great transition piece for fall.
Yes, I actually said it. I am in no way, shape, or form ready to think about fall fashion, but I couldn’t help but think how perfect this sweater would be for those warm fall days when it’s too hot to wear fall clothes but you want to wear fall colors and weightier fabrics. That said, it’s also perfect for pairing with white jeans for summer.
I picked up this sleeveless sweater at Banana Republic last week. I was first drawn to the color, but I also love how it fits close to the body without being clingy. It is currently on sale for $44 and available in all sizes. I’m wearing the medium. I love the cable detail and the side slits in the hem.
I immediately envisioned this sweater with white jeans, but it would also be nice with black or dark denim. For summer I prefer it with a lighter color.
These are the Steve Madden Emmey wedges in cognac leather. I wanted to show an affordable but versatile wedge sandal, and I really like the braided strap across the toe. These shoes are extremely lightweight and easy to walk in.
The website advises you to size down in these shoes, but I ordered my usual 8, and they fit perfectly, as you can see. Occasionally I can wear an 8.5, but that’s rare in a sandal, so I would say they are pretty true to size.
These are my DL1961 Florence skinny jeans, which I had hemmed when I bought them. I’m noticing in these pictures that they’re looking awfully short, especially from behind. I don’t know if they have shrunk over the years, or if the extra 3-5 pounds I’m carrying is causing them to ride up, or if they’ve always been this way and I’m just starting to notice it, but I would recommend hemming your jeans so they almost rest on the back of the shoe (unless, of course, they’re supposed to be an ankle-length jean.)
These jeans are on sale at Bloomingdales for $99, and if they had my size, I’d grab a new pair and have them hemmed properly. I absolutely love these jeans — the style, the fit, and the weight of them is perfect, and I really hate that mine are looking short.
I didn’t want to wear a necklace and distract from the pretty cable pattern in the sweater, so I opted for statement earrings instead. These Havana Chandeliers are my favorites. They’re currently on backorder, but they should be restocked soon.
I also wore my white and gold beaded bangles from Alex and Ani. I always tend to wear these bracelets with these earrings because they compliment each other so nicely.
Finally, this Foldover Crossbody is only $39! It’s also available in grey and black. I know not everyone has the same affinity that I have for designer handbags, and I wanted to show you one that is super cute and on trend and won’t break the bank.
I really love how this outfit came together. It’s simple and comfortable, but the colors and textures are really pretty together.
