Sweater Weather (Plus Help Me Choose Sunglasses)

This week’s IFB Project is to put together one’s best “sweater weather style.”  Well, this isn’t best-best in terms of prettiness, but it’s one of my favourite weekend outfits and a look that I’ve gone with for at least two or three ears – just about as long as I’ve had this cardigan – or rather, blardigan (since it’s blazer-like).  While the weather is still on the warmer side, I’d wear the outfit with pumps or ballerina flats, while in the winter, I’d pair the outfit with taller boots, pants tucked in. You might also find me in a regular cardigan paired with boot cut jeans. If I’m in a dress mood, I might be seen in a sweater dress and tall boots.

Blardigan and skinny pants (paired with the Aiden sunglasses in violet tortoise by Kay Tran):

  • Scarf Blardigan: Old, from Anthropologie (purchased circa 2009)
  • Camisole: Smartset
  • Skinny Pants: White House Black Market
  • Pumps: Stuart Weitzman “Blogger”

 

Regular cardigan and boot cut jeans (paired with the Olivia glasses in black cherry):

 

 

Sweater dress and tall boots (paired with the Allison sunglasses in golden maple):

  • Sweater dress: Alice & Trixie, purchased on the Peacock Parade (Canadian flash sale site) in July or August
  • Boots: Saunda
  • Clutch: Auslini (also from Peacock Parade)

By the way, which sunglasses work better for me?  All three pairs are by Kay Tran, a Toronto-based designer who specializes in sunglasses for people with more petite and lower-bridge noses.  You can read a write-up of her glasses here.  I’m leaning towards the Aiden or Allison, but if I were to get the Allison, I’d go with a darker shade (but which one – see below).

    Both red and black Allisons are nice. Love the Blardigan, did the scarf part come like that? Very unusual and cute. Could be a DIY project.
