On My Bod: Cozy & Cool

In this outfit:
Shorts: Vintage Levi's/Thrifted
Sandals: Birkenstock
Glasses c/o Bonlook
Necklace: Gift
Bracelets: Vintage

I always look forward to this time of year. The cool mornings require a cozy sweater thrown over chilly shoulders, the same goes for when the sun goes down. In anticipation of this weekend's backyard party, I dreamed up this comfy combination. Pairing the softest, rose-patterned cardigan with easy shorts and my latest obsession: my Birkenstocks.

I am dying over that rose cardigan. I don't see it on Aeropostale's site, though. Is it an older item?

I always forget about Aeropostale! Such a beautiful sweater. The roses really give it something extra. How I yearn for those cooler mornings and evenings. Unfortunately for Texas, they don't get here until later September, early October.

Always so inspired by your style.

Ashley- it's a new piece, but may have sold out online. I would definitely check in-store though! I highly recommend it, it's super versatile and incredibly soft!!

Orchid Grey said...

Annie- me too, but they have some super cute pieces, like this sweater, and the prices are really good for the quality :)

This was my first summer of Birkenstocks, and I don't think I ever want to have another without them. Yours are so cute, as is this entire outfit.
I feel the same way about this time of year. We've been having great weather for cool mornings and warm days lately too, so I think the universe is playing into my August dreams.

That's a really awesome sweater, especially with the lining. Although, I don't think we're quite cold enough in Pittsburgh yet to call for cardigans. Only some days.

Maybe in September?

Ashley said...

Sounds like my local store has just two left! Making a bee-line there after work. Thanks Julie!

Orchid Grey said...

Ashley, glad you found one! Prepare to be the coziest, ever.

Iris, I like to keep a cardigan handy in the mornings and evenings this time of year. Though the weather has been warm the past couple of days, it does cool down significantly in the evenings (I loved when it got down to the 40's at night last week!). Late summer- especially in PGH- is most definitely my favorite 'season' for this reason :)

Love the sweater and Birkenstocks -- I almost bought a faux pair whilst living in Korea. It won't be sweater time here for a couple more months, I'm trying not to force it.
