Sweaters

Patch Me Up

It can make a simple sweater or dress pop a bit or it can take a fancy sweater and bring it down to an everyday occasion depending on what you pair it with.

This green sweater is perfect for the cold winter months with a muted tone color scheme. It can go from fall through early spring and still look fashionable and appropriate. The length is great because it’s long enough to wear without tights on those balmy fall nights or you can add in tights and boots to handle the winter months.

Invested in Fur

Fur vests are one of my go to looks for fall. If it’s real or fake I love the way it finishes off an outfit. It not only helps to add a layer of warmth but also makes simple outfits more exciting. Wearing black or camel sweaters underneath fur vests can help to bring out the natural tones within the fur.

Fall weather is always confusing. Boston has been a yo-yo from hot to cold. This weekend has felt like the summer was back again. I have friends who even got sunburns at the beach! Most have started the transition from summer to winter clothes in their wardrobe and it’s tough with you hit that in between.

I use these warm days as the perfect excuse to bring out longer skirts with light tops to blend the two seasons. The changing weather makes this skirt easy to pair with a lightweight three-quarters shirt for now and change to a fun turtle neck in the winter!

I absolutely, positively love big bulky sweaters in the cold months when you are at home relaxing. There’s nothing better after a full day of work to shimmy out of your shift dress and snuggle into a warm, cozy sweater. There’s something about the thick layers that makes stress roll off and TV marathons even better. If you need to pop out throw on some boots, leggings and you are good to go.
