what I wore // autumnal evening

I recently cleared out my closet of all the clothing I haven't worn for the last... like 5 years. I admit it, I have hoarding tendencies, but mostly because I am practical and think I might just need that one weird sweater in 2 years. but I keep buying more weird sweaters and never end up wearing it, so that's not very practical, now is it? I finally have my wardrobe down to a more manageable and realistic size, and what do I do? go shopping to fill it back up, duh! I felt the need for more cozy fall items to replace the ones I gave away and sold... but with a better mind set I am making better decisions and investing in more items I can see myself wearing multiple seasons, multiple years down the road.

I am obsessed with this new sweater/blazer/jacket I found at Forever 21. [score!] I have received so many compliments on it every day I have worn it, and been told it looks expensive, when it wasn't more than $30! it's the greatest lightweight knit material for this time of the year, plus it has a modern, boxy kind of fit so it can be layered under. I love that it is simple and has no buttons and can be casual or dressy... it's perfect!!
