The pullover sweater

Sunnies: TOMS | Scarf: The Fashion Lane (c/o)(in cranberry) | Necklace: CS Gems (use code CARYLEE15 for 15% off) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Top: Express | Sweater: GapBottoms: Gap | Booties: Rag & Bone (budget option)

I realized I have a hole in my wardrobe when it comes to pullover sweaters. The few that I do have aren't solid colored, or they are thinner and not conducive to layering. So, during Black Fridayweek, I was on a hunt for the perfect one. These cotton sweaters from Gap got a lot of good reviews, so I took a chance and ordered three of them. I sized up based on a few reviews and based on how it looked on the model. I'm thinking I could have just gone with my regular Gap size, but I still like them just the same!

It's kind of funny because the night these sweaters arrived in the mail, the husband walked into the closet room as I was trying them on. He said (genuinely not sarcastically), "Wow! You look really nice!" I was a little surprised since it's just a basic pullover with a little bit of a boyfriend fit nonetheless, but it's amazing the things our significant others can like!

Speaking of like, more like LOVE - I tried these jeans based on a rec from Rachelle, and she was totally right. The fit is perfect and they are super, super soft. This won't be my last pair!



  1. Your top looks lovely and cosy! :)

    I'm always on a hunt for new knits every time the weather starts to cool, I have never found the perfect one yet, although some have come close!

  2. you look so cute and cozy and yes these jeans are so good right?


  3. I am with you on lacking pullover sweaters! I still LOVE that scarf!


  4. I think that sweater is a great find--perfect for layering but also cute on its own I'm sure. Love the mix of two plaids too! I know, I'm surprised too at the things my husband says he likes (or notices)! :)
