Well, Texas and Southern friends, I think the fall is officially upon us. To my friends in midwest and northeast, I’m sure it’s almost winter where you are (I saw in South Bend, IN that it snowed there two weeks ago, so y’all are probably starting to bundle in scarves, hats and puffers….oh how I don’t miss that part of the weather), but I digress. With the cooler weather upon all of us, it’s time to officially bring out the sweaters, jeans and booties full time.
I recently discovered a great online store to find classic styles that can be mixed and matched to create numerous outfits that work for the occasion and weather outside – Curvy Contemporary offers high-quality pieces, versatile enough to take you from running errands to date night and this . adorable cream sweater with fringe sleeves is one of the pieces I immediately fell in love with.
Let me take you back about 8 years ago, I was a junior in college at Notre Dame and I was totally in a fashion rut. It was in the single digit or negative temperatures with wind chill and I found myself reaching for the same cashmere sweater that I had in 6 different colors (you read that right….). I was layering them with the same handful of jeans, the exact same puffer coat and winter weather boots. It was BORING to the extreme. Ever since that rut, I’ve always been on the search for fall/winter items with unique details that would help me to avoid the rotation of the same sweater day after day. So, when I laid my eyes on this ivory beauty, I was extremely excited.
Not only is the sweater in a classic shape, which makes pairing it with jeans or slacks super easy, but it is extremely soft and more of a waffle shirt fabric (remember when those were all the rage?). What’s great about this fabric is that it is lightweight enough to be worn in the warmer fall temps or layered for those already starting to experience snow. Now, I’ll be the first to admit, I was a little worried about the fringe adding bulk on my arms, but the way it is placed is spectacular – it seems like it was strategically placed to be more flattering on most arm shapes. And the fabric is finer, so the sweater can be easily worn with a jacket.
