Sweater Weather

Fall is here! It's getting colder and colder. Time to pull out your sweaters or have a shopping spree.

Last week, I ventured into my local Goodwill to see what sweaters they had that needed a good home. Their sweaters are only $5.99 and I found 2 sweater dresses for $7.99 but they were half off since it was red tag day. You cannot beat those prices for sweaters! I bought eight. Yup, guilty.

Another great place for sweaters is Ross. (Or is it Ross Dress for Less? I call it Ross.) I bought a gorgeous sweater dress there for $10.99! Their sweaters vary in price, but I bought two the other day for $13.99. Bargains, I tell ya!

10 Reasons You Should Own a Sweater:

1. They keep you warm. Obviously.
2. They come in different weights. There are heavy ones and lightweight ones.
3. You can dress a sweater up or dress a sweater down and still be comfy!
4. You can wear an oversized sweater with leggings, boots and a scarf and look instantly presentable.
5. You can layer sweaters and remove your sweater if you're too warm.
6. Sweaters are cute over button downs for the office.
7. They are cozy and make you want to read a book and drink hot cocoa.
8. You can find grandma's old sweaters at Goodwill and they're actually in style right now.
9. You can wear sweaters indoors while coats are sometimes less welcome. ("Take off your coat and stay awhile!")
10. Ugly sweaters can even make you the winner of an ugly sweater contest. (True story. I won an Ugly Christmas Sweater contest.)

10 Ways to Wear a Sweater:

Colored leggings add a pop of color to neutral accessories, lace up boots and a cream colored cable knit sweater. Patterned socks add detail and interest. This outfit appeals to your need to be cute and comfortable.
I adore Aztec ANYTHING so sweaters are no exception. Use an Aztec sweater as your focal piece, then stay neutral with the rest of your outfit. Black leggings, tan boots and a gold necklace finish this look.
Mix up your patterns! These bright blue patterned leggings pair well with this tan and black polka dot sweater. Add brown riding boots, neutral tone scarf and dangling earrings to complete your outfit.
This outfit is great for a chilly day at work. Black slacks, baby blue button down and a gray sweater with a bow necklace, gray boots and black Michael Kors handbag.

I love the mustard yellow and brown color combination. It gives off so much warmth. You can pair a sweater with a pencil skirt for fall. I love the shoes.
 
Wear a chambray under a bright colored light weight sweater. Pair with black slacks, dark gray flats and a multi-strand necklace. Another great office outfit for casual Friday. 

Wear boyfriend jeans with a bright scarf, patterned sweater and booties. This is a very popular look right now and easy to pull off.

 Wear a colorful button down under a striped sweater. Wear with dark wash jeans and tall boots. This is cute for work or an afternoon shopping.
A lightweight sweater can be worn with a flirty skirt and flats. This outfit looks cute with a pendant or statement necklace. I love the color combination of navy, yellow and brown.

This look is adorable for date night. It has girly charm. Wear a sweater over a dress with a collar and add flirty heels. Keep jewelry simple with diamond and pearl stud earrings.
 
 
Pull out those sweaters and wear away!
