Unseasonably Warm

We’ve had some unseasonably warm weather this past week…like summertime warm, so I’ve been taking in the limited sunshine (anyone else struggling with the early sunsets and darkness by 6:00pm?) and baring my legs for all to see!

But enough about the silly weather….we have more important things to discuss. Like this sweater! It seems pretty unassuming and comes in a variety of colors, but let me tell you why this sweater is a must buy. 1.) I got it for $20 (on sale) and 2.) It’s both thin and thick at the same, which I understand makes NO sense at all. So let me try to explain it.

It’s a thin knit sweater, which helps it to be slim fitting and not as bulky as some heavy knit winter sweaters. I thought this would be a great layering piece for fall/winter under blazers or over buttondowns or flannels.

Well, it turns out it is a tight, thin knit sweater, which makes it pretty warm on its own. My workplace is super cold all the time (yes folks, I have a desk blanket!), and I was actually starting to get warm (which never happens) in this outfit. So score one for this sweater and score two for summer-fall temperatures in November (and score three for that Colts win yesterday!).

But then minus a million points, because…it’s Monday afterall!

    I love the belt over the skirt – I wouldn’t have thought of it! It was nice to have an extra week to go without tights in Indy. I’m begrudgingly wearing them today. :(

  • I do NOT understand DSL. The weather last week was amazing and I had initially thought we could do some family bike rides…until I realized how stinkin’ early the sun sets. Ugg.

  • Yes, LOVING this weather… only complaint is that there is hardly enough daylight to enjoy it! Our sunset is seriously at 5:30. Love this sweet and sassy skirt combo :)

  • This is such a cute, simple, and cozy fall outfit!

  • I love thick but thin sweaters! It doesn’t really get all that cold down here in ‘bama, so they’re what I live in during the winter months!

    I love this outfit! The skirt and ballerinas are perfect. Berlin has been unseasonably warm as well these past few days so I can totally hear you :)

  • Love the belt you’re wearing! I think the warm weather may be finally gone here in Cincinnati. It was close to freezing temps this morning :(

  • Such a cute outfit!! And I have a desk blanket too :)
