The Usual Uniform

When I fell in love with this elbow patch sweater at J.Crew, I bought it in almost every color. Naturally.

I’ve always exercised that thought process when it comes to buying multiples in differing color ways… When it’s good, it’s good. Might as well have more of a good thing, right? πŸ™‚

I love how this sweater is just the right amount of loose. (I’m wearing a Small, btw.) The shape is perfect for layering turtlenecks, chambray shirts, or button-front shirts underneath when the temperature really drops.Β And the elbow patch is just too perfect!

Also can’t stop wearing this tassel necklace! It’s the perfect little necklace to toss on over a tee or sweater. It’s not too dainty, but isn’t too much a statement either. Love it!
