Every year when summer starts to turn into fall, I feel a little sulky. I love warm weather and even though I love fall clothes, I don’t like the temperature change. To me there are few things worse than finding yourself in complete darkness at 7 PM and being greeted by freezing cold air when you step out of the shower first thing in the morning (GRR!).
Whenever the sulks come on in early September, I always do a little splurge on a fall sweater. I love sweaters! I adore the feeling of being cozy and wrapped up in a great knit. I’ll typically buy a few sweaters fall/winter season but since I already have a lot, I am careful about each one I add.
This year, I wanted to share with you my favorite and first new sweater that I picked out for fall – that I absolutely love! It’s by Vince – a brand that I always find great basics at. I still have and wear my Vince sweaters from 4-5 years ago.
What really drew me to this sweater was the cowl neck. I’m usually not a huge cowl neck person but I liked how Vince incorporated their version as a cozy turtleneck. The length is also great – shorter in front but longer in back (so you can get away with wearing it with leggings). The knit is mostly all natural fibers (a must for me unless I’m doing a cheapie splurge at H&M) and very soft.
I made my husband take this photo while he undoubtedly rolled his eyes while I was blinded by fabric. See how long the neck is? There’s a lot of ways you can wear this sweater – casual with the neck bunched around, or more formally with careful folds of the neck.
I bought my sweater with a 20% code (currently there’s a Friends and Family sale at Bloomingdale’s here, code is FNF). If there’s a bigger sale I might want to add the camel color as well! Revolve (here), Nordstrom (here) will also price match, and it’s also on Shopbop (here) for tax free shopping.
What do you all think of the sweater? And what are some of your go to sweater brands?
