Personal Style Monday – Fall Sweaters & the Simply Be Jacket

Happy Monday! Not sure about you but with the temperatures dropping, I had to pull out a few fall sweaters and jackets this weekend. In today’s OOTD, I’m actually showing off another one of my favorite (thrifted) fall sweaters. I’ve had this sweater for years and every time I wear it I think of Christmastime, lol. It’s nice and cozy, super soft but doesn’t take well to ironing (ugh). Nonetheless, I wear the heck out of it during the fall and winter. I mean, what’s not to love about a big comfy green sweater?!

Fall Sweaters - Simply Be Jacket

I also pulled out my Simply Be jacket this weekend. This jacket, faux leather detailing and all, is another piece I wear A LOT during the fall and winter. I won this beauty a few years ago from a Love Brown Sugar giveaway. It’s a staple item in my wardrobe and it’s such a classic. I like that I’m able wear a big sweater, like this green one, under the jacket without feeling stuffed. Talk about an uncomfortable feeling. There’s nothing worse than feeling stuffed and stiff in a jacket/coat!

Going back to the green sweater for a minute – can you imagine the endless ways you can style it? I can wear this sweater to work by styling it the way I did above, and still be professional and stylish. I can pair the sweater with my favorite denim pants and some funky heels (or boots) for a more chic look. I can also go super casual and throw on some leggings, sneakers and obnoxious jewelry for a fun OOTD. Clearly, there are several styling options. Be on the look out for some more fall and winter looks ft. “The Green Sweater”.

In keeping with the fall OOTD theme, I have to give my blogging buddy Antionette a shout out. Her outfit from last week’s linkup was one of my faves. I’m all about the fabulous pattern mixing and I love slouchy neck striped top. It’s a classic top and it can probably be worn year round. Pairing it with a long maxi and leopard flats is perfect for early-mid fall. I love it, Antionette!
