my everyday style: bejeweled!

Earlier this week I was touting the simplicity and versatility of a simple sweater + jeans combo.  This outfit may even be easier… Because some days you want multiple layers and a lots of visual interest with an outfit. And some days, well, you might just not.  I know that I love to have a few outfits on hand that are just really basic, but beautiful… and even more importantly - comfortable.

I love this jeweled sweatshirt that I have from a previous season.  It soft and comfortable, but the embellishment takes it to the next level.  So it's a really handy piece to have on hand when your closet is saying "dress up!" but your mind is saying "keep it simple."  You know those days? (I have them more than I would like to admit!)

Read on to see the full look and I link to a lot of great jeweled sweaters and sweatshirts that you can add to your closet for those days you are feeling more "keep it simple" than "dress up!"

my everyday style: simple fall outfit!

I'm all about simple fall outfits lately… if it's a no-brainer, I'm wearing it!  (exhibit a, exhibit b, exhibit c)  Nothing is as effortless as my favorite sweater + jeans + ankle boots formula.  I'm pretty hooked on it lately… and it's a good thing because I'm going to need as many easy and stylish outfits as possible to get me through winter.

This navy sweater is a no-brainer on it's own… I snagged this sweater during the recent J.Crew sale.  When it arrived I couldn't believe I didn't already own a navy cable-knit sweater.  It's easy and comfortable and goes with pretty much everything in my closet.  It will be perfect paired with a jean jacket and scarf or a puffer vest and a scarf as fall turns into winter.  But today I love it just on it's own. Because these sunny and warm fall days won't last forever - unfortunately. But THIS navy sweater will be sticking around all winter.
