It’s no secret that I love a cozy fall sweater and this wool one from Aritzia is no different. This sweater has a perfect relaxed, cropped fit and is incredibly warm. I’ve recently talked about my newly found love of merino wool (see here) and the fact that it’s not itchy like traditional wool.
This week the temps really dropped in Seattle so when I spotted this burgundy wool coat at Uniqlo I knew I needed to add into my rotation this fall. This week the temps really dropped in Seattle making it the perfect time to pull out the warm coats. As much as I love my puffer down North Face jacket I also love a chic wool coat. I immediately was drawn to this one because of the color which I bought in wine or more commonly burgundy.
Jackets are probably something that I have too much of but in Seattle we tend to live in these for a large part of the year. Basic necessity? I think so. When I came across this drape front jacket at Nordstrom Rack I was sold on it pretty quickly. As we head into fall, Seattle is in this awkward transitional period where its not cold enough for a heavy jacket but also cool enough where I want some type of outerwear over my shirt. This jacket is perfect for that. Made from 100% Tencel, also known as lyocell, this is probably one of the softest materials I own! Read More
I’ve always been someone that stuck to a pretty safe color palette when it came to my clothes. I think a lot of it was when I was a child shopping with my mom I’d see her write off certain colors of because they didn’t match her skin tone. From there, I always assumed those colors were not for me either. It’s only been later in life to where I realized that we look better in differing color tones. On a recent Aritzia shopping trip I originally picked up a black merino wool sweater that I wanted to try on and then the associate pulled this sweater and showed it to me. I wasn’t sure about the color, called Tamarind, but decided to try it on and ended up loving it. After doing more online research, its clear to see this yellow-goldish tone is a pretty popular sweater color this fall see here and here.
