My go-to-fall outfit is layering a sweater and a button up shirt. Sometimes I mix it up with some pattern on pattern love. Sometimes I opt for a cardigan instead of a sweater.
Ultimately, I am a big fan of a style that says classy, preppy, and a little bit librarian.
I bought this blue gingham button up shirt last year when I recreated a Favorite Fall Look I found on Pinterest. Best purchase ever. Seriously.
I practically wear it once a week. It pretty much goes with anything.
So when I found THIS PIN, showing me another possible way to where my favorite gingham shirt I pinned it to my For My Closet pin board.
I just had to keep my eye out for a striped sweater that would fit the look.
So when I found this black and white striped sweater at Old Navy I kind of squeaked and I almost pressed my face against the store window.
I immediately liked the sweater.
Then upon closer inspection, I found something really rather spectacular...
This sweater has elbow patches. Eek!!!
Not only are they elbow patches, but they are BLUE elbow patches. The exact blue of my favorite gingham shirt.
Guys...it was also on sale.
Bought. Done and done.
I paired it up with some ankle skinny jeans, black flats, and touches of gold jewelry.
Oh, I know it might seem silly, but man this sweater makes me happy.
Thanks again Pinterest for all the PINspiration. How did we dress ourselves before you?
