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!!
