Style: Sweater Weather

Elizabeth and James sweater, J. Crew pants (similar),
Aquatalia boots (similar), Chanel handbag, antique button ring

You may have noticed that I changed the title of this section from “Fashion” to “Style.”  When I really thought about it, I realized I’m not always into the latest fashions, instead wearing what I like and what flatters my body type.  However, I try to wear what is current and to dress with style and √©lan.

Moving on…

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but December was pretty mild in Boston, or at least compared to last year.  Now that it’s January, though, it’s sweater weather.  And even though there isn’t snow on the ground, when the weather is in the 20’s and 30’s, it’s pretty chilly!

Strangely enough, I found this warm, cozy sweater in Southern California back in September.  I just couldn’t bring myself to wear it, though, until recently.  What attracted me about this sweater is the layered crop top.  It’s a fun way to wear the trend without showing any belly.

I paired the sweater with J. Crew pants from last year (though I’ve added a link to a similar pair) and knee-high boots (because it’s too cold to wear ballet flats).  An aubergine handbag was added for a pop of color.
