Why I Can’t Stop Wearing This Fall Staple

It’s finally that time of year again.

You know what I mean.

OMG Pumpkin Spice Lattee & Riding Boots!!!

Record scratch – hold it right there.

PSL’s and riding boots are all good (if you’re into that) but beautiful fall fashion & accessories come from a place of simplified elegance. I believe in styling oneself in a minimal but impactful way.

I want to share with you one staple style item that will serve you well this fall – not only will it keep you cozy but it looks beautiful in a very simple way.

Back in August I had the chance to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. In one of my Instagram stories try on sessions, I tried this cozy twist knot fleece pullover and got so many of you saying how cute it was. So naturally, I had to get it!

This fleece pullover is the coziest top I own. And that says a lot considering I own a lot of cozy tops! During the anniversary sale, I choose this grey color over the 6 others avaliable. All the colors were very pretty but here’s a big tip:

What I really love about this sweater is the fabric. Fleece is so comforting because it feels amazing against the skin. It keeps you warm without being scratchy or itchy (like wool). The little knot detailing is a cute twist on a trend we are seeing a lot this year. It gives it that hint of trendiness without being too overwhelming.

One of the things I believe in is effortless elegance and simplicity in everyday looks. Instead of wearing big and loud statement pieces, I would rather go for just a hint of a statement. For one, it doesn’t distract from your beautiful personality, but magnifies it. While a very loud apparel piece may predispose someone to make an assumption about your personality.

This sweater says = I’m cozy but modern.

This is a great sweater to dress up or dress down. You can pair it with jeans for a casual look or wear it over a dress, with a skirt, for a more refined look.

I went for a casual look today with my Paige denim skinny jeans and Calson black booties. I got both of these items at the sale.
