Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the frigid temperatures seem to be here to stay, and it got me thinking that snowy weather is just around the corner. I’ve never been a fan of the snow. Yeah, the first snow fall always looks beautiful and peaceful but after a few snow storms I’m over it. Plus, have you ever walked through the streets of Manhattan while it’s snowing or after a big snow storm? It’s a slushy mess that just makes my commute unbearable. I’d rather an autumn wonderland than a winter wonderland, so before the snow arrives, I’m holding onto the fall season a little longer. Keep on scrolling to read all about one of my favorite autumn inspired outfits.
Chenille is all the rage this season. To be honest, I never really heard knew much about this unique type of fabric until recently. After doing a little research on this fabric, I learned that the word “chenille” is French for caterpillar because the threads resemble tiny caterpillars. My mind was completely blown away! But it does make sense because the threads are very thin and rigid. My favorite chenille sweater is this oversized sweater from Zara. I love the burnt orange color which to me is the color of autumn. The chenille fabric is so soft and cozy you never want to take it off!
The burnt orange, rusty, color looks best when paired with a dark wash colored denim. My distressed boyfriend jeans from Madewell are the perfect match. I’m not sure how long these jeans will last because every time I wear them the holes get bigger and bigger, but I still love them. I guess they served me a good 4 years, but I’m still not ready to retire them yet.
To add a little more of the autumn color palette, of course, I had to wear my metallic gold slides from the brand Restricted which you can find at Marshalls. The metallic color really completes any look and pops against anything, like the pile of leaves in this photo.
Since my sweater has a low neckline, a choker style necklace is the best for pairing with this sweater. I’m really digging the mixing of metals like gold and silver so this cool spiked necklace from the brand Design Lab sold at Lord and Taylor’s has a mix of gold and silver that pairs nicely with my rust colored sweater. Plus the spikes add an edgier vibe to this somewhat classic outfit.
Let the season begin of anxiously checking the weekly forecast to see if snow is on the way. Am I totally weird to hate the cold weather and snow this much? Let me know in the comments what kind of weather you prefer. See you all in my next post!
