Soft purple and black crochet

IMG_2646Late November is such an exciting time: the Christmas decorations start coming out, the first snowfall usually takes place and everyone starts gearing up for the winter season. I love this time of year; the atmosphere is so alive and bustling, and it’s the perfect time to get cozy with a warm sweater and some thick socks.

Today, I wore muted purple hues and a black crochet sweater. As I begin to transition into winter clothes, I always find myself wearing fewer bright colours and more subtle neutrals.

I love the way Free People does winter clothes: they’re not too preppy or tailored, but still have that boho edge that’s usually reserved for the summer. I decided to pair this crochet sweater with this lavender slip because I love the way the netting peeks out from under the sweater. The velvet floral detailing on the slip is also so romantic, and such a lovely way to bring it into the fall/winter season.

I paired this outfit with black accessories to go with the sweater and protect me from this chilly, wet day. I can’t wait to start mixing and matching more layers during the winter — it’s so much fun to put unexpected pieces together, and it’s so much easier to do this during the colder months.
