Sweater – Madewell / Denim – Forever21 / Scarf – Aritzia
I could never be the girl that could be content in a t-shirt and jeans. Believe me, I’ve tried. I would probably be able to cut my daily routine by 65% if I could just throw on that kind of an outfit every day. However, just when I think it’s possible, I look in the mirror and always find that something is missing. In personality, I’m not a very girly girl, but in terms of style and what my closet looks like, I am very much a girly girl. So yes, I could have paired this sweater and jeans with a pair of sneakers or flats, but then I wouldn’t have felt like myself. Instead, if I’m going to wear a pretty basic outfit, there needs to be a bit of a statement piece with it. Instead of one, I chose two. I wanted these boots that you’ve all seen me wear a lot, but are a little bit pointy and suede, which adds more texture to this look. Secondly, I added in my Aritzia diamond blanket scarf – functional, chic, still in the same color family as the sweater, and adding just enough warmth for a fall day in Cambridge. I didn’t need to go on a shopping trip while I was on a work trip in Cambridge, but the opportunity presented itself and that’s where I picked up this adorable sweater. I actually don’t have very many pieces in pink and I was worried that this wouldn’t work with the rest of my closet, but it’s a piece that I get quite a few compliments on. Apparently, it works really well with my skin tone? Additionally, it’s also just very cozy and great for layering. This sweater was already on sale and I was able to get a “student” discount on it. Wins all around!
