Sweater Weather

Fashion

I am no fan of the cold, which is one of the reasons why I moved to Texas many years ago. However, there is one thing I do enjoy about the winter months…. chunky sweaters. Chunky sweaters are like a cozy blanket. Chunky soft sweaters that feel like a warm embrace from a beautiful fuzzy creature. Thankfully, there are a lot of ethical options when sweater shopping this winter. My Christmas present from my husband was this cotton-wool blend sweater from Pact Apparel.  (Grab it on sale in grey.)

I think the rust color suits my warm hair. This blended sweater is fantastic at keeping me warm (but not itchy) and works well alone on those days when it is a more mild temperature.

I also have my ojos on this gorgeous sweater through ThredUp with buttons on the back.

The classic Black Wrap Dress can be styled numerous ways because it is such a versatile piece. They also have a gorgeous fit and flare dress. Both dresses are only $40 each.
