{ the sweater side }

when i first moved to new york from my mostly-balmy hometown of austin, texas, i was pretty sweater-inept. i never really had to wear them before (in my past environs, one jacket layer would typically suffice for the coldest days of the year), and definitely did not appreciate their chic possibilities. fast-forward a few years and i’ve more than come around to the sweater-side of life (see yesterday’s post for proof)! i am happily wearing THIS WONDERFUL ONE while typing this post, and currently have a few quirkier varietals queued up on my mental wishlist:

{ top row, from left: cooperative raccoon sweater ($54), carin wester top-stripe sweater ($184), hot topic (shocking, i know!!) panda sweater ($36.50) // middle row: fred perry laurel wreath sweater in ivory ($319), dkny lipstick sweater ($195), dkny cherry-stripe sweater ($225) // bottom row: zac posen cardigan ($288), cooperative porcupine sweater ($54), fred perry laurel wreath sweater in navy ($319) }

    I pretty much stock up on Cooperative sweaters every year. They always have the cutest motifs. x

    That Zac Posen cardigan is killing it! I like the cute animal sweaters too, and yes, I am VERY surprised that little number in the top row comes from Hot Topic.

    the laurel navy sweater is darling, as is the dkny, though admittedly, all are absolutely charming and hold lots of possibility for northeast autumn.

    You have just inspired me to pick up some fun sweaters–I tend to stick to lots of solid cashmere/drapey James Perse etc. but these are soooo fun!

    You have such a gorgeous collection of sweaters. Somehow, I still found out that they are a little bit expensive. I have bookmarked an e-shopping store named lnlclothing.com and I found out that its a great discounted store that offer cheap clothing and other fashionable items.

    I was so entirely the same way! moving to NYC from MIA but originally from SC – had no clue how to dress for the cold!

    I'm getting better though!
