Big. Chunky. Knits.~A definite fall essential

We have hit September!!! Yess!! My jacket, layering, and boot-loving self is cheering quite eagerly for the upcoming season of fall. And yes, I'm aware it's still 95 degrees outside, but at least the month title "September" makes me seem a bit less ridiculous when all I want to do it make posts about sweaters and boots, right?? I'm just soo in love with the season of fall because it's just the right amount of cold where you don't have to look like you just got off of a ski left to stay warm, but you can certainly break out all of your favorite jackets to wear! So, when I begin posting cold-weather clothes like a mad man(..or "woman" for that matter) over the next couple of weeks, don't say you weren't warned:).

Which brings me to the first thing I am excited about for fall! Big chunky knits! We saw them all over the runways for fall 2010 from everywhere from Michael Kors to Thakoon, and now they are hitting all of the stores! The way I see it, a big knitted sweater is the stylish way to getting away with leaving the house with a warm blanket wrapped around you. They are so warm and cozy, but they look chic and effortless at the same time! What more could a girl want??

Like I said, you can find chunky knits pretty much anywhere you go once it gets cold enough outside. I've noticed that lately (for a cheaper option) Express has had some really fantastic cardigans and sweaters. I even got one for myself! And, (for a higher-end option) of course no one does knits like Missoni. I'm so excited to go stock up on these warm essentials for the upcoming months!!

xoxo, Audrey

Weird.. I was planning my fall wardrobe last month and I told myself that I want some chunky knits. Didn't know it would be the trend for fall 2010. I am tres avant-garde! ;D

I use to hate sweaters because my mom always made me wear them when I was little, but I am starting to love them again! So glad they are in style.

About me

I started Dressing Up In Daisies about four years ago for the purpose of sharing my opinions, ideas, and personal style on the internet, rather than keeping them bottled up in my head. In my first post on Dressing Up In Daisies, my then thirteen year old self said, “Fashion is about taking risks, and dressing up for yourself, and no one else. Ever since I was two years old, my favorite game to play has been dress up...and it still is. The amazing thing about this game is that you get to play it every single morning, so why not have some fun with it? Wear some massive heels, opt for the leopard coat, throw some daisies in your hair. Whatever your mood is that day.”

This statement is something I continue to stand by, and will for the rest of my existence. I believe it is important to show the world that fashion should celebrate the beauty in risk-taking and oddities, which vastly transcends the limitations of "trends" and other rules often imposed by members of the fashion industry.

I use my blog to connect to the world of fashion that I know I’ll be a part of one day. Feel free to leave comments with feedback, or click the "contact" link above to email me.
