Hey beauties! Friday is here, and officially so is fall - two of my favorite things! The temps are definitely dropping here a bit, and every though I could still get away with wearing light layers for another week or two, I am embracing fall head on!
It's been a few seasons since I've hit up a Banana Republic store or browsed online, which is crazy because I used to be such an addict! I still have a closet filled with their sleeveless blouses, but somewhere down the line the selection just started to bore me. After hearing good things are the Olivia Palermo curated collection they debuted at NY Fashion Week, I poped over to their website to see whats up!
A lot of the same old, some really great basics I already have, but then a simple crew neck sweater caught my eye. And I'm here to tell you, this sweater is FAB, and definitely easy fall uniform material. It's available in 11 colors and in sizes XXS-XL (I'm wearing a S for reference) and it's the easiest go-to piece for fall. It has just enough stretch to hold its shape perfectly no mater how many times you push the sleeves up and down, and just enough drape to hide a Thanksgiving bulge (or belly full of pumpkin spiced EVERYTHING, if you're me). It's made of fine knit merino wool, and a total deal coming in at under $50 (30% off this weekend). I'm already planning on wearing it mixed with my green utility vest, burgundy fur vest, layering my glitzy gold necklace from our wedding over it to dress it up (with a black leather skirt) for date night, the possibilities are endless. This sweater is going to get a lot of milage as the temperatures drop!
Matthew and I headed to a dinner party last night and I wore it paired with ankle booties and gold jewlery. It's so comfortable and easy, I cant wait to pair it with a leopard scarf and leather jackets once it dips below 40! Did I mention I love fall?!?
Also worth mentioning is This top on sale at The Outnet. It's the CUTEST transition piece to bridge the off the shoulder trend from summer with the micro bell sleeved trend for fall! And a great deal at $69!
Happy Shopping lovelies!
