Why You Need a Sleeveless Sweater

October 26, 2015

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend. Russ and I have been working on a master bedroom update and did a lot for it this weekend. I also had the opportunity to work with Jami of Photography by Jami Leavitt to shoot a couple blog looks. It’s always such a treat to hang out with her, much less work with her. If you are in the Oklahoma/Utah area, be sure to check her out.

Sleeveless sweaters have really become my fall essential. Today I am wearing my fringe accented sweater over a fun retro inspired blouse (great price) and flares. I’ve worn it alone here. Here’s why you need a sleeveless sweater:

  1. Sleeveless sweaters look good alone – seen here
  2. Sleeveless sweaters look great layered over a blouse – seen here and here
  3. Sleeveless sweaters are easy to layer over a dress – regular vest seen here
  4. Sleeveless sweaters are a good way to add interest to your outfit – seen here
  5. Sleeveless sweaters are perfect with you need extra warmth in the fall but not a coat. They also fit under a coat easily during the winter.

    Gorgeous outfit! I love this sweater over your blouse, it’s casual yet elegant! Those flare jeans look amazing on you, I never really wear them because I don’t think they would look good on me, but they fit you really well!

    xo, Esther

    I’ve honestly never thought to wear a sleeveless sweater, but your ideas are pretty convincing! I love the feathering on the shoulders of this one.
