Knit Sweater Weather
What is cozier than a heavy knit sweater during the fall and winter seasons? It is the closest thing you can get to wearing a blanket outside the house and is so easy to wear. I picked this sweater out because the color, size, and strappy detail on the back. It was a little tricky trying to style this one at first because I bought it at Forever 21 when it was still 90 degrees outside. Also, because it is so heavy, it is easy for this to become unflattering. Oversized knit sweaters and skinny jeans are always a good combination. But to lighten up the heaviness & darkness of the sweater, I thought adding pale pink accents made for a pretty & girly contrast.

Here, I am wearing my blush pink Kate Spade Monday purse and my Steve Madden Carrson sandals also in a matching pink. The purse is one of my favorites and I have taken it almost everywhere. It is so easy to wear and I like small bags in general. The sandals are something I have been trying to wear more lately. I initially bought them to wear with a dress but I think these look great with jeans too. Pink is generally a color I like to save for the Spring time but I think it works for the Fall when pairing it with darker colors. I love the little touch the pink adds to the outfit, especially with the darkness of the knit sweater.
A Hidden Gem
I love visiting local hidden gems. In the middle of a busy residential area where I live, lies an eccentric little garden. This park is known for it’s Wishing Tree. Located in the depths of the small garden is a walkway leading up to the Wishing Tree where people actually do hang their wishes on. In the picture below, you can see various notes strung up on the tree. There is also a stone labyrinth in the middle of this park which is supposedly ancient, and made the place seem a little magical. I thought the park was really cool and reminded me a bit of Alice in Wonderland. For anyone who happens to be in the area, I am adding the yelp page here.
Thanks for reading, until next time!
