Sleeveless Sweater Weather

"I allow myself to accept and enjoy all that is good and positive in my life."

Later this week we will be marking the first day of fall, but I'm enjoying our little heatwave at the moment - it feels good to have the windows open and the fan on. I'm not always sure where pieces like sleeveless sweaters really fit into my wardrobe, but hopefully I'll find some great ways to layer it up as the days grow colder.

  1. Sleeveless sweaters are one of those funny pieces that I find myself endlessly attracted to - I've had more of them than I can count over the years, starting with a mauve one when I was about fifteen - but never seem to find much time to wear. The sleeveless sweater season is far too short, as far as I'm concerned, but obviously I'm biased because they're a style I like a lot. I have a black one right now that I don't get to wear nearly enough. It's a much heavier (and thus even less practical) knit than yours, which I also love. It's already started to feel like what I'm used to winter being like here, so I've dived straight into sweaters with sleeves, but I'm crossing my fingers for a few more warm days before the season officially ends.

  2. I just wore my sleeveless sweater dress last week because it's the perfect weather for them now! I remember when this style came out many years ago, and I thought it was silly!! I'm glad I've gotten smarter..ha ha!!

  3. I'm glad you're getting a last kick of summer before the fall really sets in - and I could see that sleeveless sweater being a pretty good layering piece when it gets cool enough that you need your arms covered. It would be great with a blazer.

  4. I do love that sweater! I should have bought it yesterday but I was too busy scavenging to see if they still had it!

  5. I think that sleeveless sweaters are hilarious but also so practical in such a weird way! I love them for layering in these transitions!

  7. If not now, when ?
    I like the laid back look here, you're looking great my friend !

  8. Sleeveless sweaters are super cute. I love yours in gray and that adorable Rocksbox ring.

  9. Even though this is a jean skirt and a tank it still says fall time! It's nice to get a sunny last summer weather before the fall starts!

  10. That sleeveless sweater will look great underneath a jacket too! And perhaps a scarf? I like pieces like this because they don't add bulk under layers.

  11. This is so perfect for fall! The weather is cold in the mornings and hot in the afternoon your still covered! Love it!

  12. I'm copying down that opening quote! What a great reminder. This sleeveless sweater is so versatile. I like how you've styled it here, but could also see it over a button down shirt with jeans. I hope your week is off to a great start!

  13. Love your denim skirt! It's still been pretty hot here in NC, today was 85 degrees! As much as I love summer, I always look forward to Fall. Something about the crisp air, and and changing leaves. If we could just have Spring, Summer, and Fall as seasons I'd be happy!


  14. I LOVE sleeveless sweaters too! They're my favorite and I find them so flattering. I wish the season for sleeveless sweaters would last longer LOL! Love how you styled this sweater with a denim skirt. So cute!

  15. Super cute look for transitioning into fall (can't believe it's official later this week!). We are still warm here too, so I'm with you on the sleeveless and skirts still. But I'm ready for boots and sweaters now, that's for sure!


  16. I love this denim skirt, it fits you perfectly. This is a great casual look.


  17. Yesss, this is the perfect time of year for sleeveless sweaters- and I love this one with a denim skirt!

  19. Sleeveless sweaters are great for this time of year.

  20. This is the perfect compromise to this crazy weather. Love it with your skirt.
