Fall means cozy pieces, like sweaters and cardigans. These two pictured here are my favorites. There’s just something about stripes that draws me in. It’s such a fun patten without being overwhelming. I will say this, I did stay away from stripe prints for a while because it was said that strips could make a person look wider but I’ve learned to embrace them. That’s not so say that they don’t have this effect on people, I just think it’s all in how one wears them.
Slightly oversized sweaters and cardigans are the way to go in my opinion. The sweater because it is slightly bigger fitting, doesn’t overwhelm a figure. While a cardigan is balanced by the layering effect. If you’re a stripes lover, items similar to these will be a great addition. These two options are under $40 and linked below for you to shop. Before you head off, tell me which is your favorite in the comments below. 😀
Chenille… Did you get any this winter? I did! I mean, this is one of the softest fabrics there is when it comes to clothing, so why wouldn’t I? At first I wasn’t sure if I’d add any to my closet but when I saw this sweater I caved. I love the fabric, like I’ve said but there’s also something about this color and how rich it is that I had to get the sweater. I don’t love winter but I do love some of the styles that come with it… and besides chenille, I have been obsessing over booties. This black pair has been my go-to all season long.
Speaking of go-to, these Levi’s jeans are also on the list. I have worn these over and over again. They’re at a higher price point but it’s one of those pieces that are worth the money. I am linking all the items on today’s look below for you to check out. 😉 I hope you have a great weekend; and I’ll see you next week!
Faux leather leggings are an item that I’ve had my eye on forever. On a trip to Express, I found these! I wasn’t sure how they’d fit on my but decided to try them anyway and I actually liked the fit. I don’t have any regrets on this buy because… I feel that these are so versatile and can be worn in so many way! Dress them up or dress them down, however they’re worn, they’d make a nice outfit.
This time, I decided to pair them with OTK boots and the prettiest sweater which seems to have sold out, but I am linking a similar item for you. I love that ruffle details on this sweater – apparently I have a thing for ruffles. 🙂 And as far as accessories, I didn’t really wear much other than my go-to handbag, earrings and the Starbucks cup (which seems to be a thing with me lately).

Since being back from my trip, Houston has been cold. I mean high 50s low 60s kind of cold. I’m not sure if it’s a cold front or here to stay… The bad thing is that I had to adjust coming back from Central America’s warm weather. The good, is that it is finally cooler and officially sweater weather. Today I’m sharing one of my favorite sweaters that I picked up during this year’s N Sale. While this one is available in very few sizes, I have linked some favorite styles from the same brand for you to shop. I have also linked the jeans – yes, I plan to wear white for as long as I can regardless of the no-white after labor day rule. 😉 The handbag and block heel sandals are also linked below, so get to shopping!
