sweater + cut off jeans

Hello, friends! I hope everyone had a fabulous Labor Day weekend. I am just now getting a post up after a dreamy getaway to the Texas hill country with the cowboy and his family! The fresh air, fly fishing and complete lack of laptop did my heart good. I’m hoping your weekend was equally refreshing as we jump into the next few days ahead!

I thought we’d start this Wednesday off with an ensemble that is soon to be my go-to during these next couple of months… the easy, comfortable jean shorts + oversized sweater look.


SWEATER   oversized vneck sweater   |   SHORTS   denim cutoffs (flea market find, similar linked)   |   TOTE   embellished tassel tote (also available here)  c/o   |   SHOES   adidas stan smith sneakers   |   SUNGLASSES   black ray ban aviators 

This Pinterest-worthy look (follow me here) is surprisingly easy to recreate. All it takes is a couple staple ingredients, and you’ve got an ensemble perfect for these tricky fall transition days.

I purchased this oversized-sleeved sweater for the plane ride to Paris this summer, and it’s quickly become one of the most-worn pieces in my closet. I paired it with my go-to denim cutoffs (found at a flea market in California a few years back) and an extravagantly embellished tote for a laid back, bohemian vibe.

The finishing touch that brings this whole look together? A pair of Adidas Stan Smith sneakers! I loved this trend the second I saw it, but was wary to try it myself thinking there was no way I could pull it off. I was proved wrong though – they work on every person I’ve seen them in! If you don’t have a pair yet (I know you already love them if you do) I can’t recommend these enough for adding effortless cool to your fall shoe collection.

Have you tried the sneaker trend yet? I’m all ears!

Love from Texas,
