As the leaves begin changing, and the mornings grow colder, I finally hunkered down and spent part of this weekend switching out my closet from summer to fall items. I actually did keep my part of the closet pretty neat since I last moved things around (click here for my closet switcharoo last season), so it didn’t take that long.
The best part about taking out and rediscovering my fall and winter clothing? Sweaters!
The freshman class
I’ve purchased 3 new sweaters this season, including this argyle sweater cardigan, as well as the heart sweater and striped one that you’ve seen me wear already. I’ve definitely gravitated toward more pattern recently.
These solid-color sweaters and turtlenecks are my workhorse items of fall and winter. Most of my solid-color sweaters have subtle textures and details: the purple one has a cowl neck; the pink one has rolled edges along the collar and cuffs; the red cashmere (that I got on clearance years ago!) has a cable knit pattern down the front; and the dark blue sweater has subtle ribbed panels. Looking at these pics, it’s interesting to me that I’ve gone for cooler tones in the sweaters, and warmer tones in the turtlenecks.
This one’s just right for the ski lounge (or sofa/bed/wherever), and oh, what a sweater! It’s vintage, and the label reads “Product of Norway.” And how cool are those metal buttons?! ♥
I love this sweater, as its mix of colors just says “autumn” to me. And I love that it’s a mix of patterns all-in-one! This striped-and-argyle beauty is cool enough on its own, and I’ve also layered it over button-downs.
