Light as a Feather

December 2015
December 2015

Hello! A few days ago, I picked up this incredible, feather-y sweater at Ashby. The second that I spotted it in Ashby, I knew that it had to be mine. As you guys probably know, I'm very attracted to texture and the texture of this sweater is superb. Like wow. Wow, wow, wow. It resembles faux fur slightly but it also has a very feather-y texture to it. In reality, it's actually just a knit sweater with lots of airy yarn attached to it. It's unlike any sweater that I've ever seen before. There's a very rich, luxe, boho, free-spirited one-of-a-kind nature to the sweater. Bonus points for how incredibly soft and cozy this sweater is! Even better yet, this sweater only cost about $25. Personally, I feel like this looks like it would cost $100+ so I'm really stoked to have scooped it up at Ashby for just $25. 

For this look, I styled the sweater with a modern lace-up top. The beautiful green color and trendy detailing of this top make it one of my favorite tops in my wardrobe right now. With this outfit, I like the contrast of the very "now", trendy feel of the top with the sort of "old soul" feel of the sweater. I highlighted the color of the top with a cool pair of vintage DKNY dark green chelsea boots as well as a printed pair of lace-trimmed shorts. A swipe of lipstick, bed-head curls and a pretty crystal necklace pulled the look together.
