The Perfect Fall Sweater

KA3_3882While I love wearing girly dresses and heels – which I usually dedicate for the weekends – I’m most often seen wearing comfortable, flowy tops like above, and jeans (or leggings). With fall quickly approaching (or is it? because it’s been 90 degrees for the past week and a half…), there’s nothing better than light, oversized sweaters that’ll be an easy transition piece into the next season.KA3_3868I’ve been hitting up Old Navy like crazy over the summer, and stopped in before I headed back to school. They’ve been by go-to for stocking up on essential pieces – especially for the (hopefully) pending cooler temperatures. I thought I had found everything that I needed, but fate had is so that I spotted this oversized sweater on my way to the checkout counter!KA3_3916 My first thought of recognition was that it was Free People… until I remembered where I was. It has such a striking similarity to one of my favorite brands, so I knew I needed to try it on immediately.KA3_3898KA3_3881Thankfully it was another one of those perfect dressing room moments, because I loved it so much! I paired it with  blue jeans and sandals in today’s post, but already have ideas for black denim and ankle booties to give it an edgier vibe.

I know I keep talking about the weather, but you guys have no idea how much I’ve been praying for it to cool down. Mostly because I’m extremely uncomfortable, but mainly because I want to wear all of my cute clothes!KA3_3867I decided to size up to make it even more oversized, but don’t think that’s completely necessary. The sleeves are a bit too big, so I definitely suggest sticking to your normal size!

 Oversized Sweater: Old Navy // Jeans: Gap // Sandals: Dolce Vita // Bag: Wilson’s Leather (Exact)

      Omg thank you SO much for the sweet comments! I’ve always been pretty self conscious about the name, so that really means a lot! And the sandals were such a steal for $22!

    This sweater looks so utterly comfortable for any cool night. Too bad I already have way too many sweaters with not enough cold nights to wear them. :]

      Omg I agree! I’ve been buying all these fall clothes, and as soon as I think cool weather is here to stay, it goes back up to 80 degrees!
