Coming back from North Carolina to Connecticut this past weekend solidified that sweater weather is officially here! If you don’t follow me on Instagram (@livelearnluxeit) then you might not know we were away celebrating two of our dear friends getting married. The wedding was spectacular and the weather was a mix of sun, a little rain, and chilly nights. When we got back we were greeted with 40-degree weather, which made it pretty hard to deny it was time to get out all my cozy sweaters out of storage.
What I’m Wearing
Fall is known for its iconic browns, beautiful shades of burgundy, and deep oranges but there’s something about wearing unexpected colors that I’m completely here for this season. Take my blue sweater for instance; It has all the right components for sweater weather but the fun shade adds a twist. And I am all about subtle ways of adding personality to your wardrobe.
Pairing the blue sweater with white jeans only adds to the serene vibe I was going for. Some people don’t dare wear white after Labor Day, but I love it! I live for fall neutrals. They keep an outfit crisp and add a touch of class. White jeans, specifically, pair so well with any color cozy sweater or oversized cardigan that it’s hard not to add them as a staple to your fall wardrobe.
This week my husband and I are gearing up for another quick getaway. We’re heading to Las Vegas this weekend then going separate ways. I’m going to Arizona to visit family and he was more work to do in Charlotte. We’ll both reunite back in Connecticut before Thanksgiving. We’re both a little bummed to be leaving our westie, Scottie for this trip since he can’t fly. It’s always tough but we leave him with family which makes it so much easier and gives us ease of mind.
I would love to hear your favorite part about sweater weather and if you normally opt for the normal fall shades or go a little different with unique colors? What’s your favorite if you do? Let me know below!
Thanks for stopping by today! Make sure to come back later this week for another post!
