This is a really great transitional outfit. All you need is a sweater that is 100% cotton. This sweater from A.L.C. is just that and it lends itself to slightly cooler weather. However, it also features the most amazing tropical leaf print down the arms in neon green. This makes it perfect for summer as well. The mix of black and gray with the neon green gives it a darker fall feel. In essence, this sweater is perfect for the summer to fall transition. I bought this sweater at the end of June, but it was always too hot to wear it despite its cotton fabrication. Long sleeves in Denver in the summer is hard to get away with. Now it seems just right. I love the color combination on this sweater. Intermix actually had a different variation where the body of the sweater was green while the leaves were black, but I much prefer this version. They still have some left at Forward if you are interested in purchasing. The neon green really is a nice pop of color as much as that saying is overused.
I wore the sweater with one of my favorite pairs of shorts from last year. See how I styled them in a completely different way here. These shorts feature a really soft fabric with leather trim. They have a sporty vibe and a nice cut for athletic legs thanks to the slit on the side. They can also be dressed up or dressed down making them very versatile. I wore my gray Givenchy antigona bag yet again as I thought it highlighted the colors in the sweater quite nicely. I never thought I would get so much use out of a gray handbag. I really wanted some extra length in my legs so I went for these Alaia hiking boots which never fail me. They are cut extremely low on the ankle and they have a huge platform. This makes them perfect for enlongating the legs without sacrificing comfort. I wish more shoe designers would make lower cut heels that fit wide feet. It is difficult to find ones that flatter your legs and fit your feet. Last but not least, I have a thin diamond ring on my finger from EF Collection. I am very impressed with their jewelry and have been slowly collecting some of their rings over the summer. My nails are still recovering from the gel nail manicure I received in Las Vegas so I have been giving the nail polish a break.
