Crisp fall temperatures definitely have me reaching in to my closet for some sweaters lately! In comparison to states up north, I don’t need to don heavy jackets and sweaters throughout the fall and winter. However, I find it hard to resist a cozy, chunky knit sweater.
I picked up this chunky open sweater at Old Navy last year. It was the end of the season, so I didn’t have many chances to wear it before packing it away. However, now that the heat has subsided, I’m wearing it constantly! It is great to throw on as a “jacket” of sorts; if the weather heats up a bit mid-afternoon, I can always remove it.
I love that I can dress this sweater up and down. I’ve bummed around town wearing it with a pair of yoga pants, went casual-chic with skinny jeans and heels, and dressed it up a bit more by pairing it with a skirt/dress and boots. I’ll make any excuse to wear these boots. They’re the Naharra boots by Sam Edelman, and they’re about 2 years old at this point. I bought them in both brown AND black…I loved them that much. If you’re looking for a similar pair, Sam Edelman does have two lookalikes this season: the Penny (looks like the Naharra without the heel) and the Loren boot. I definitely recommend Sam Edelman boots for both quality and style – they might be a bit of an investment, but if you go with a classic style they are going to last you a long time!
But, back to the sweater! If you’re eager to get a similar look, you’re in luck! There are SO many open chunky knit sweaters in stores right now…score!
