The Fashion Magpie Sweater 2018 2

I Feel It Coming…

Cooler weather!  It’s around the corner!  I’ve already been daydreaming about my fall wardrobe (P.S. – should I go for the Quant or the Kitty for my fall boot?! I love both of these brands so much.  Also debating whether to do an animal print or go practical with black or even trendy white), but I’ve done a deeper dive on refreshing my sweater game in anticipation…

+This is very on-trend for a good price.  I like it in the millennial pink color, but there are a bunch of options!

+I’m swooning over this pastel fair isle.

+In love with this lace stitch statement sweater — on sale!

+I’m drawn to the dimensions of this cable knit.  And what a fun color!  I’m into that kelly green hue right now — I am also eyeing these fun slides in the same color (on sale!).

+Loving this slim-fit ribbed henley sweater.

+A classic.  I’d order a size up and wear with skinny jeans and some smoking shoes.  I want to curl up in a window with a cup of coffee and a good book in that outfit.

+Speaking of classic — I adore this flag sweater from RL.  It’s the perfect back-to-school look, even if you’re a decade out of school!  I love the idea of it with dark wash denim or even white jeans and some loafers.

+One of my favorite sweaters from last year.  So comfortable and breathable.  Also a throwback — it looks like something one of the boys in Dead Poets Society might have worn.

+$100 cashmere in a rainbow of colors.  Love the sophisticated look of a cashmere sweater with perfect fitting jeans and sharp flats.  They’ll take you anywhere.

P.S.  Before we let summer get away from us, you must consider these late-in-the-game additions: a $23 sandal that looks a helluva lot like something by The Row or ODLR (I cannot decide which color!  Navy is so sophisticated and would look amazing with a white dress, but green!  yellow!  so fun!), and the chic-est little blouse I ever did see.  Would look excellent with those slides in the navy!

P.P.S.  Speaking of sweaters, I’ve wanted to buy Mr. Magpie one of these tuxedo bear sweaters for like twenty seasons in a row.  Would look so adorable for a holiday party…AND, also, speaking of Mr. Magpie, I think he needs one of these classic Baracuta coats for the transition-to-fall.


  1. I am SO excited for autumn — I always am, as I admittedly do not love hot & humid temps — but there’s something about fall fashion that is just so good.

    I vote for the Quant booties, either in black or in that beautiful caramel leopard color (I am firm in my belief that leopard is a neutral!)

    I recently picked up a tunic-length grey cabled Demylee sweater (one of my favorite knitwear brands), and am also looking forward to wearing a pair of light-wash Levi’s that I picked up in June but have seldom worn during this very hot summer. I need a new pair of No. 6 clog boots, and would love another pair of Everlane loafers, maybe in camel or navy? Decisions!

    P.S. That Loveshackfancy sweater reminds me SO much of a pastel fair isle sweater I had when I was in 4th grade (in a good way!) AND, I have that rollneck J.Crew sweater in pale pink and looooove it.

    1. That Demylee sweater sounds divine — you introduced me to the brand last year!!! Sounds super chic. Love a new season for some new fashion decision-making…xo
