Sweater Weather, Finally!


It’s finally getting cool enough to get out my sweaters here in northeast Pennsylvania! It’s always an exciting time of year when I can get out my boots, tights, scarves and sweaters. I like the changing of the seasons as much as I like the changing of my closet.

This boucle-textured grey and black cowl-neck sweater from Loft is perfectly comfortable and polished for work. Blog1For this look I added simple black trousers from the Gap. Black pants are always a great staple and I have plenty in different cuts and styles depending on the look I am going for.

Boucle-textured purple and black bejeweled flats from Etienne Aigner were the perfect partner. Blog5I paid $6.97 for this cute pair at Goodwill, but they were marked new-with-tags for $69! To add a little sparkle, a pearl and glass bead necklace added some bling.Blog3

The large suede and silver-studded Tignanello bag was a great find at the Reading Outlet. Blog4I estimate I paid only about $2.50 for this high-quality bag. Outlets are great for searching for hidden treasures when you have the time! A bag like this would have retailed for about $200!

For the weekend, I would pair this sweater with skinny blue jeans and tall back boots. Blog2Goodwill Keystone Area stores are stocked with all your fall needs – sweaters, jackets and scarves. Go pick some up now! Colder weather is right around the corner!
