Looking over my posts from the last couple of weeks, one could reasonably guess that I am looking forward to fall. One would be right. September is the time in Texas when you know that fall is coming, and so have to balance the desire to wear sweaters and boots against temperatures that still are often in the 90s. One way to balance this is to wear transitional sweaters–they are not the cable-knit, bulky items worn in December and January, but thinner, more shirt-like sweaters that are comfortable in an air-conditioned office or plane. Here are a few of my favorites!
This faux wrap from Ann Taylor is pretty, interesting, and should be soft against the skin with its cotton-bamboo-wool blend.
Banana Republic has a lot of sweaters right now, and I like the colorblock, the contrast trim, and especially this long sleeved open cardigan. It would be perfect on a plane, and layered with sophisticated basics could definitely be work-appropriate. Love the deep blue color.
