Sweater weather has finally hit for us and I’m more than ready. Don’t get me wrong, the woolies aren’t coming out anytime soon, but I can wear a sweater all day and not roast. Fall in California is different than other places because we really only need two-season clothes. Hot and cool.
It won’t be cashmere or wool weather for a while so I’m loving cotton sweaters. They are the perfect wear now, wear later option for mild climates. This one is quickly becoming my go-to sweater and I expect it to be in heavy rotation this winter. They call this color bone, but I’m calling it off white. It’s strange how things can creep you out. Some women would never wear a snake print, I have no problem with that. But bone as a color bother’s me and doesn’t sound all that flattering.
OFF WHITE SWEATERS
I decided I was going to wear more color this winter so what did I fall for? An off white sweater. I’m having a love affair with everything off white these days. It looks richer than stark white and has an elegance that pure white will never have. There’s something about wearing off-white head to toe that has me needing off-white boots and pants.
These snake print booties go with everything I own so they’re getting a lot of wear. Have you noticed how there always seems to be a shoe, sandal or boot you reach for over and over in a season? These are it for me this fall. I may look for a different shape bootie so I don’t get totally sick of these. Their stacked heel has a slight cowboy vibe which makes them very casual, so maybe one that’s more refined.
These pants accidentally hit the dryer last week and fit better now than they did before. I don’t recommend the dryer for these Essex pants but sometimes accidents work out. I love how the plaid of the pants plays nicely with the texture on the sweater and the print of the booties. This is my kind of pattern play.
What are you embracing this fall, that you haven’t tried before?
Have a great day and wear what makes you feel confident.
