Stand-Out Sweaters

So I’ve had this really cool sweater for about two years and any time I wear it, people give me some compelling looks. BUT, recently I’ve been seeing a few other girls wearing sweaters very similar to mine so I figured now would be a good time to style it. I found this 5/48 sweater at a Nordstrom’s Rack for a steal of $60 (it was originally $280). The only down side to this statement piece is that it gets stuck on everything

Festival goers: this look is for you! With the temperature dropping and the festival line ups bumping, this sweater is the perfect mix of grunge and warmth. Find the coolest bralette you can get your hands on and torn up jeans. Boyfriend jeans would also look really cool with this. Maybe even some trippy leggings if you’re into that kind of stuff (though I don’t recommend it…). I found this the-dye head band at The Hangout in OBA and am obsessed with it for some reason. Throw on your favorite ankle boots and jewelry to finish off the look.


(Feeling bird-like in this sweater… which calls for frolicking)


Jumper: NOLA || Necklace: H&M || Shoes: Steve Madden || Hat: Blink

Me and Bailey discovered the Secret Garden of Lafayette today and figured my felt hat and purple wedges looked great with the greenery… notice that I climbed on top of this little archway to snap a few of these pics.


Pull out that blank jumpsuit that you threw into the summer pile and put this sweater over it to create a totally new look. The fringe necklace adds another pop of brightness but doesn’t clash with the plum of my shoes.

Throwback: I wore this exact outfit last year for Thanksgiving and in my family Christmas card pictures. So, happy one year reunion to me and this outfit! And yes, I do form deep relationships with my clothes. Anyway. If you’re going to wear a skirt with this sweater, since it’s a high to low hem, wear a fit-to-flare skirt or pencil skirt to show off your curves. Black tights and black booties create one clean line to lengthen my legs (always necessary). I put on my green ceramic cross to add a little color and bring out the green in my eyes. I suggest wearing some gold bangles or a big gold cuff to brighten up the look a little bit! Unfortunately I forgot mine ad didn’t have time to go get it because we were in a race against the sun. Putting a black tank under this sweater makes it warmer and look a little more like a heat source rather than a dainty blouse, like in the first look.
