So Fall is officially here! And I’ve already gained at least 5 pounds since Pumpkin Spice lattes made their seasonal debut on the Starbucks menu. And since my sweaters are somewhere buried in the depths of my closet, I’ve had to consciously take in to consideration pieces to invest in. First piece being this uhhmaaazzing A.L.C sweater!
I learned my lesson last winter. Desert winters are SIGNIFICANTLY different than LA winters. So coats from Forever 21 are just no longer an option. Thus, I’ve invested in a full on wool coat by Akris Punto. Can’t wait to debut that later on!
In the mean time I’ve decided knitted sweaters are a must! And believe it or not I’ve been finding a ridiculous amount of good deals on these as of lately. Did you know sweaters are actually sold during the summer? As someone who grew up relatively close enough to the beach, or at least close enough to where an ocean breeze was a deciding factor on exactly how many wardrobe changes I had to carry with me throughout the day, this makes total sense. Light weight sweaters are essential for us coastal gals all year round. However, typically during the summer we see these items come in more vibrant colors. Naturally, a lot of these pieces have been marked down and I love bright colors anyways! While yes, it is important to invest in certain fall staples (still working on some high-waisted black leather shorts) I can’t go the entire season without some happy colorful pieces. It’s not me.
