Basic Cable

Hi friends, happy Monday! With the weather cooling down here in Madison, it’s quite literally sweater weather, and who doesn’t love a good cable-knit? When I think of the classic fisherman’s sweater, my mind first jumps to being around five or six at my grandparents house. Whenever I was chilly, I would borrow one of several sweaters my “Ahma” had knitted for either my mom or my aunt when they were little. They were the perfect, cozy, cabled cardigans with pretty brass buttons. Though those are long gone, they are definitely the standard I look to when on the hunt for a new sweater. I personally believe everyone should own a great cable-knit, and this season, there’s so much to choose from. It’s anything but basic cable with punchy colors, or fringe, or colorblocking, cable-knit is cool y’all. You can even incorporate it into your look in the form of leggings or even a poncho, whatever floats your boat. If you live in the Great White North, like me, you’ll definitely be requiring a chunky knit to keep you warm all fall/winter, and cable-knit is the way to go. Check out some of my picks in the list below!

IT’S SCARF SEASON, Y’ALL

Scarf: Plum Boutique

Happy first day of FALL! Not to be cliche, but Fall is by far my favorite season. I think every girl ever would agree with that statement, but for me the season is about so much more than pumpkin spice lattes. It’s about clothes, y’all. We finally bid farewell to the sweatiness of summer (maybe that’s just me…) and get to pile on the layers! Ok, so there’s still a couple weeks until the cool weather really sets in, but now is the time to stock up on fall faves, such as scarves. A great scarf, like the one pictured above, is the best way to pull your outfit together…with minimal effort. Leggings, a little sweater (bonus points for a cape), topped with a plaid infinity, and you’re good to go. I love this one, from Plum Boutique in Waco, TX! It’s super cozy, but also thin enough to double loop without looking like you’re wearing a neck brace haha. Plus, the price is most certainly right, at only $28!

Plum recently launched their new website (Plumtique.com) and I’m pretty much obsessed with everything. From apparel, to jewelry, and home accessories, they’ve got you covered. Definitely go check out the site and treat yourself to some goodies. For my Baylor readers (sic ’em!), head to their adorable shop in Spice Village. Also, give them a follow on Instagram for a wonderful feed full of inspiration! Be sure to check back on Friday, as I’ll be hosting a little Plum Boutique giveaway!

I hope everyone is having a great first day of fall, thanks for popping by!

So I’m clearly in a very Fall mood these days. Sweaters, coats, and comfy tees for layering are definitely all on my radar right now. I’ve mostly been “window shopping” or I’ll fill my shopping bag online and then just leave it after realizing the total is into the thousands. I did, however, purchase a couple things from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I linked them in the little widget below if you’re curious. The red Tory flats above are included in the sale as well, so if you’re in the market, go grab these (they come in black and gold, too!). I hope everyone’s week is starting on a high note! Check back here tomorrow!

Weekly Wishlist: #NSale

Long time no see, ya’ll! I took a week or so off after July 4th to just kind of enjoy summer a bit. I’ve been frolicking around Madison, shopping, and working this past week, but I’m back with some fun things planned for the next few days. First up is the Weekly Wishlist, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale edition! Everyone touts this sale as the best of the year and that’s no joke, plus it’s prime time to stock up on fall essentials (jeans, boots, coats). The sale is open only to cardholders until the 16th, but I would definitely recommend applying for a card if you don’t already have one. You can even be a peasant, like me, and get a Nordstrom debit card. Apply here. Anyway, here are my sale picks! It’s seriously all I can do not to snap up all of this stuff right now, but I think my bank account would audibly cry out in pain…whoops. Happy shopping!
