Sweater Weather

Hey guys!

Happy almost December and almost end of the semester! I have been absolutely swamped (per usual) with tons of work. Thankfully I have a bunch of content for you guys these next few weeks though! I wanted to share this look because we've all been in the sweater rut...Looking for a sweater that's extra warm and cute, but not $50.

Although I haven't posted much about it lately, I've been thrifting a lot and have been finding the most amazing pieces - including this sweater! This sweater was $4.99 from Salvation Army, but the best part is that it's originally from Barney's and is 100% cashmere! I found it randomly among a bunch of other sweaters and it was in such good condition I couldn't say no.

Although we all love a chunky knit, I loved this cashmere sweater because it's a little bit more tailored and is super versatile. Sometimes I don't like wearing the super oversized sweaters because they can either be a. too big to tuck into my skirts/pants or b. make me disappear in my clothes. If you're like me and only 2 ft tall, then it's really important to have pieces that define your shape - although I like cozying up in a big sweater every now and again.

I really love this look as well because it can totally be dressed up or down, like most of my outfits on here. I paired the sweater with a pleated plum skirt from H&M, which I've been wearing with everything lately (more pleats please). And although I'm wearing a casual chunky heeled boot, you could definitely slip on some heels for a dinner or get-together. During the holiday season I always find that Im crunched for time, so an outfit like this could be transitioned from school/work to whatever night festivities you have going on by changing your shoe or adding jewelry. 

I also wanted to just remind you again that this is typically a great time of year to go thrifting as many people are going through closets getting ready to make room for their holiday pieces. Although I can't show you exactly the same sweater, I'll link some items below for you guys to check out but I definitely recommend hitting the thrift stores first!

Can't wait to share some more looks for this season soon!
