sweater weather


I've never been one to pass up on a good sale and so I have been slowly scooping up pieces here and there as the summer winds down, this J. Crew sweater was one of them. I cannot stress enough how much I love lightweight sweaters. Wearing sweaters in the summer should probably be on my list of favorite pastimes. Weird, I know. There is just something about long sleeves and shorts that I love, that and the day to (casual) night transition is seamless.

Yesterday the heat finally broke in the city. It was so nice and breezy, so I broke out my new sweater and jeans and paired it with my birthday boots. I saw these in the store the very day they were put out, they hadn't gone up on the website yet. I fell in love immediately and miraculously summoned the strength to leave without trying them on. I had no business being in there anyway. For quite a while I had been debating getting a new pair of Harrows, in black this time, because as much as I love my Newburys, the zipper on the back of my left boot falls down every time I walk and constantly fixing it got annoying after a couple of years. I wanted a pair that would stay put. So naturally, I choose one with four zippers that I am very much hoping don't cause me any trouble. I love these boots so much already. You have been forewarned, I will be wearing these every day until May.

Thank you so much for your sweet birthday wishes! Have a great day!

  7. Yay for new boots! Love these.
    And I'm with you- I keep a few lightweight sweaters around all summer long to throw on over tanks + pair with shorts. It works!

    1. Thanks girl! I basically just curl it with an inch and a half barrel and let it fall out before spraying it.

  21. Unfortunately, it's far from sweater weather in Texas, but I've been eyeballing those boots for a while. I have them in brown but 'need' them in black. Don't you agree? Soon enough, my hubby will, too. :)
