I’ve had my eye out for a striped sweater pretty much since June, but I couldn’t find one that I loved that wasn’t sold out (isn’t that always the case). I scoured the internet, and finally found this one from Forever 21 that checked all my boxes. I’ve been over the moon for it since I got it, and it’s a total compliment magnet that happens to be light enough for 85 degree days, but warm enough for those 60 degree days. That’s what fall sweaters are all about, right?! I originally wanted a sweater with more basic rainbow colors, but these colors turned out to be really great with my warm skin tone, and the orange matches my favorite matte Mac lipstick (Chili).
I also *finally* got my hands on a pair of wide leg crop pants from Everlane! They’re somehow super thick but stretchy and comfortable at the same time – a combination that I’m surprised works so well. I always look at pants like this and think they would only look really good on super skinny, 5’9″ models, but true to the reviews they look great on everyone! The waist gapes a little, but I’m used to that issue since a larger bum and smaller waist are problems too complex for even the most skilled clothing manufacturers. *sigh*. Despite that, I really do love these pants. They met all of my expectations and much more. I think I may get them in another color as well!
Thanks for stopping by!
