Nothing says "bring it on, fall!" like a cozy, chunky sweater. This was one of those items that never really caught my eye online or on the hanger, but once I saw a sales associate wearing it in the store last fall, I knew I had to have it. Luckily, it was in the sale section. I love the burnished olive color that seems to be so popular right now, and I think it's a great transitional piece. The bulkiness of the sweater makes it hard to layer under a coat, so this brisk autumn weather is perfect for this. I just threw on a striped tee underneath, and I don't even need a cardigan or jacket!
I've been on the search for a great slouchy satchel, and of course the famous Mulberry Alexa one is a little out of my reach right now. I found this great leather-trimmed canvas alternative at the Gap of all places, and I love that it has a similar vibe. I love that it fits everything I need for work, with room for more. This doesn't quench my lemming for the Alexa of course, that bag will always be at the top of my wishlist!
