If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that we took a whirlwind trip to California last weekend to surprise my parents for their 50th anniversary (which was amazing!). It was so hot in Los Angeles that I had to pull my sleeveless tops & shorts out of storage to take with me. Needless to say, it felt so good to arrive back in New York on Monday to find cooler temperatures & leaves all over the ground.
I recently picked up this sweater & absolutely love how warm & cozy it is – thanks to the merino wool/cashmere blend, it’s super soft & great for layering (it also comes in a striped version here). I try to avoid acrylic knitwear as much as I can because it doesn’t hold up as well and tends to look cheaper…so, I try to find well-made sweaters in classic styles & wait for a good sale to snatch them up. Another way I’d style this is worn under a faux fur vest with coated jeans & pointed flats for a modern chic look.
