Atlanta weather was overcast and chilly this weekend. I was finally able to pull out some cozy sweaters and scarves. It’s a romantic type of chill. It makes you want to drink hot cider by the fire. I actually have a few friends who blamed the weather on the fact that they’ve already began decorating for Christmas. Fall fashion, in my opinion, is the most fun to put together. Something as simple as a knitted sweater can be glamorous with the right accessories and details. I bought this white sweater (available in yellow here) at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July. I fell in love with the back and knew that I could do something special with it… and it was less than $50! Not familiar with the #Nsale? Each Summer, Nordstorm hosts a sale that lasts a few weeks, card holders have early access (which is awesome because many items sell out fast). These are all new pieces from the Fall collections, available for a discounted price during the first few weeks of their release (kind of backwards, right?). It is awesome. This crossover cz ring in rose gold (see below) was another #Nsale find, and is still available here. I went nuts.
The crisscross back and long flared sleeves make this otherwise simple, oversized sweater something unique. I added a crochet front bralette from Victoria’s Secret, a grey wool hat with felt flower applique, which I found at Target many years ago, but here it is on eBay for $12.99, and pointed toe “ginger booties” by Nicole Miller (available here via Poshmark). So, look for an ordinary piece and add to it… a classic Fall staple can become something special.
