Fall Casual

While I really like the way I feel in a vintage dress or at least more pulled together ensemble with fox print blouse and coordinating skirt sometimes you simply can't beat the ease of a good sweater and jeans. I definitely don't spend all my days in skirts! In fall especially it's just so easy to throw on a trusty pair of jeans, brogues, and classic sweater. But I am a bit picky about my sweaters; I like traditional looking designs that mimic some of my favorite vintage finds. Year after year I find myself more dedicated to vintage-inspired, if not actual vintage pieces. While others sometimes find their "timeless" or "investment" pieces in minimal, sleek designs I find my lasting pieces in the classic. For sweaters (or jumpers, as my husband would say) fair isle inspired designs are some of my favorites. I probably have a half dozen fair isle style sweaters, although only one vintage piece made in the traditional weaving technique. This latest one Modcloth sent me comes in one of my favorite color combinations and will definitely be worn often this autumn and the next! Like my old, very worn jeans, much-abused brogues, and cozy blanket scarf (which I've been using quite a bit as an actual blanket this year) it's a new classic I plan to wear again and again.




  1. What a lovely colour combination - I can see why you'd wear the sweater (and outfit!) again and again. It really suits you!

  3. Hi! Could you please tell me if you manage to buy from Modcloth without paying customs charges? Thanks a lot!

    1. Hi Emanuela, I don't have a tip for avoiding customs charges; I pay them the same as everyone else when I order from shops based in the States. What I tend to do is to have my packages sent to my family in the States and then collect my packages when I visit them or have them bring them to me when the visit me. Not sure a plane ticket is cheaper than customs fees, but it works when I already have visits to them planned :p

    2. Thank you for your reply! I think Modcloth should set up a shop in Europe as well. :-)

  4. Love your jumper! The print is so autumnal and the wool looks so cozy. Such beautiful pictures too, I especially like the last one ✨

    I don't wear jeans myself but you look great in yours

  6. I think this is the most Autumnal jumper I've ever seen, it is beautiful!

  7. That sweater is so pretty and the faire isle design really is just timeless for this time of year. I love that the burnt orange and brown colors give it even more of a vintage vibe.
