Pattern Mixing with a Colorful Striped Sweater

I love the cool, rainy weather we've had here in Southern California lately! For starters, it finally feels and looks like fall, even though we are almost into winter. Second, the weather has provided me with the opportunity to wear a lot of my fall and winter sweaters and coats. One new acquisition to my sweater collection is this colorful chunky sweater from Gap. I picked it up a few weeks ago during Gap's Cyber Monday Sale but Gap continues to have some great deals throughout the holiday season, so you can probably also pick it up for a steal. While I don't shop that often at Gap, I always seem to buy one or two sweaters from them every winter because they always have some really fun and colorful sweaters around the holidays!

As you may know, I'm a big fan of pattern mixing, so in this outfit I am mixing it up with a striped sweater and wide leg plaid pants. Normally, I might wear this sweater with some jeans and boots, especially rain boots, given the rainy weather we've had lately, but I thought this time around I would make the sweater a little bit more dressy! As you can see, this is a versatile sweater that I am sure I will be enjoying for rainy falls and winters for years to come!
