Sweater Weather

 

3

How is it almost October, already?! Fall is here and I can’t believe it.  My bikinis are all packed away and it is time to break out all of my comfy sweaters.  However, it can be a real challenge deciding what to wear this time of the year, since the weather is all over the place.  I have found that chunky cotton sweaters are the best solution.  It is still too warm for wool or cashmere, but a good cotton sweater is the perfect weight for this awkward Fall weather.

I have more sweaters than anything else in my closet – primarily because they are so versatile!  A great sweater is the perfect addition to any outfit.  Of course, the classic combo of a cozy sweater and a great pair of jeans is my go to outfit.  However, you can also throw a sweater over a slip dress or pair it with a cute mini skirt on those warmer Fall days.  Chic and comfy, yes please.

The best part about fashion is how much fun you can have with clothes that used to be super boring.  I am all about the different trendy sleeves and cuts on sweaters these days – it is a total upgrade from my boring prep school cardigans!  I have linked a few of my favorite cotton sweaters, as well as my outfit pictured above!

Shorts of the Summer

Now that the weather is consistently warm and I can wear shorts everyday, my love for One Teaspoon denim has become an obsession.  I wear my One Teaspoon jean shorts all the time. I have already bought three pairs – with a fourth pair en route! I have never had great luck with denim shorts in the past, but that all changed once I discovered One Teaspoon. They are stylish, they fit me perfectly, and they are extremely well made – check, check, and check!

Since I have already blogged about where you can buy them, this go around I am going to show you how I have styled mine so far this Summer.

Although the One Teaspoon bandits are a bit short, you can still make them look like more than just a pair of cut-off booty shorts.  This was actually today’s “fourth of July” outfit – which I wore to work.

These are the exact same shorts from the first picture, just styled a bit different, since this outfit was for date night.

These bandits are the same exact style as the ones above, just in a different color. Unfortunately, these ‘le surf’ bandits are practically sold out everywhere. Which is no surprise since they are so awesome! You can hardly see in this picture, but the left side has “Free Love” embroidered above the front pocket.

Since I love the bandits sooo much, I have decided to get them in white.  It was clearly meant to be because I just found the on sale via ShopBop!

bonitas

These One Teaspoon bonitas were beyond difficult to get my hands on.  Not only have they been sold out for months, they also appear to have been discontinued.  However, I recently stumbled into a local boutique and found one pair left – that just happened to be my size!!  Oddly enough, it was my first time at Bungalow Seven and I had no clue that they even carried One Teaspoon.  These shorts were clearly meant for my closet!

I just bought the bonitas a few days ago, however, I’ll be sure to share how I styled them once I break them in!
