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.
I’m starting to get my apartment ready for fall, including a big cleaning session. I’m so sad to tuck away my summer pieces. But I know in my small city apartment, I need to make room for my winter knits to come out. I’m also looking for a better way to store out-of-season clothes. Storage solutions under the bed are currently piquing my interest. Speaking of knits, I have plenty of cozy sweaters and cardigans I can’t wait to share on Instagram and here on the blog. One of them has a lace-up back, which is incredibly romantic.
