Mixing in Fall :: Purple Balloon Sleeve Sweater

Happy Wednesday Y’all! While the weather is still fickle in Coastal Virginia, for the most part, things are cooling down. Transition pieces are still necessary for me, since some days it’s almost 90 degrees and some days it’s a crisp 60 degrees. This purple balloon sleeve sweater can easily be worn with shorts, skirts or jeans, depending on the weather. The color is incredibly eye-catching, yet easy to style. Balloon sleeves are a trend from last winter. However, they are sticking around and I’m really enjoying it. One aspect I really like about this purple balloon sleeve sweater is how the sleeve is cinched, so I don’t have to worry about it getting dirty or accidentally dipping itself into anything. This knit is ideal for fall because it’s not too thick. Even though it’s not wool or cashmere, it works super well as a transition piece. Read more…

This top is definitely versatile and can be something you wear both on the weekends and in the office.While this particular lace-up floral top will not work in my work environment, it’ll work for others. Here, I’m styling it casually and using one of my favorite methods of mixing and matching. I like to pull a color out of the print of the top and use that for my bottoms, as you may know.  Read more…
