Sweater Weather?

Fall is hands down my favorite season, or at least it was when I lived on the East Coast! Here in Los Angeles, it seems like we get a handful of days that might qualify as being fall-like but even that's a stretch. I'm always envious of seeing bloggers in sweaters standing near fall foliage because it reminds me about what I miss most about the season! This Monday, the temperatures here dipped to the 70s, hardly sweater weather, but it was cool in the morning so I decided just to pretend like it was fall and don a cashmere heart sweater. While 70 degrees probably doesn't count as cool weather in most places, when most days are in the 90s, you take what you can get. It's all relative!

I actually purchased this sweater last spring (although it's back for fall) when it went on sale and I've been dying to wear it! At first, I thought it would look good with a blue and white polka dot skirt but at the last minute I chose this more colorful rainbow striped option from the Australian designer Gorman. (On our next "cool" day, I'll have to try out the polka dots!) The skirt makes for some fun and colorful pattern mixing. It was the perfect look to brighten up a cold dreary day, even if it was neither cold nor dreary! I guess I can at least hope for some of these days to come my way in the near future!
