That’s me in the fall, and it’s kind of the best. Cozy, unpretentious, warm.
When it comes to my wardrobe, I’ve moved from buying cheap, on-trend pieces to quality items that are versatile, classic, and durable. (Keeping up with two little boys leads to many trips to the spin-cycle.)
My go-to piece for transitioning to cooler weather? A thick, open cardigan that I can layer over pretty much anything. My favorite summer dress and tights, a tank and denim, an oversized tee and leggings. It all works. And it’s easy. (And bump-friendly for those of you who are expecting mamas.)
Sweaters abound — but a good sweater? One that’s soft but sturdy, thick but breathable? One that makes you want to light a candle, play some vinyl (or hey, a good Spotify playlist does the trick), and dig into good book? That, my friends, is hard to come by.
Right now, I’m gravitating toward neutral colors with bold southwestern-inspired patterns, like this:
This Jetset in Motion Cardigan in Taupe ($74.99 at Modcloth) is on-trend while versatile enough to mix + match with what’s already in my closet. I love that it’s low maintenance — just throw and go. (Free shipping on orders $50+. Just sayin’.)
So, yay or nay? Do you have a cozy sweater you grab that makes you feel fierce like Bey?
