sugar and spice

I bought this sienna brown sweater last fall, wore it all the time, then put it away when it got too warm to wear it. When I pulled out my sweaters for fall I was so happy to see this one! I still love it! It's a classic but with interesting details. And I don't have a lot in this color, but now I want all the chestnut sweaters because it looks so great with so much.

Express brought this sweater back this year, just in different colors! But I'm going to link different sweaters in the same hue below! 

I decided to show two different ways to wear this sweater. I wore it with jeans, perfect for the weekend or if you're lucky enough to be able to wear jeans to work, I'm jealous. And then I dressed it up and made it workwear appropriate. I also get questioned at work about how I pull off my leggings and this is how. I dress 'em up! 

the casual | This sweater looks so good with lighter colored denim. I wore it with my boyfriend jeans and I unrolled them to give them more of a straight leg feel. I really liked this easy look. I added the booties that I now wear with everything and an oxblood bag. I felt like fall in an outfit. The booties and the jeans are pieces that I interchange all the time, but they work with almost everything in my closet. And that Kate Spade bag is the best color pop for fall. I love pulling it out!

the dressed up | Since the sweater does have side slits, I paired a lace top underneath for both modesty and to dress it up. But I love how layering it up a bit makes it more fun as well as professional! This is how I get to wear my leggings without looking more like work from home and less like suit and tie. Anytime I want to wear them, I add a silky tunic, a heel, or texture to make them appear put together. Layering is key. Also, I always buy leggings that are a thicker material, such as ponte and I really want a leather pair!
