Sophisticated in a Sweater


Sweaters are usually what I wear on a lazy day, but today went a little differently… I wore this sweater because it made me feel sophisticated! A ribbed crew neck style made of an Italian cashmere blend not only made this a stylish basic, but oh so cozy as well. 




This ribbed knit pullover is the perfect shade of gray and hits right at the waist, so I thought, why keep this sweater limited to only styling with jeans or trousers? That gets so boring sometimes! I decided to tuck it into my olive green wrap skirt from Banana Republic as well! Another basic piece that now has a happy home in my wardrobe where it will be styled so many different ways throughout the year. This skirt is also practical – it has two buttons on the inside to adjust the waistline and a pocket which makes it a total win.



Basic pieces like this sweater and shirt are so essential and it’s not until I have them that I don’t know what I’d do without them! Life savers hanging up in my closet, always being chosen to help style together new outfits every month. Versatility is so important and now I wish I had this skirt and sweater in every color they are available in!


Banana Republic is always a brand that I can rely on to help me feel my most sophisticated self. It’s always fun to style up their pieces in a fun way, whether it be to make them more edgy or casual. Today I just kept it simple and let the clothes do the talking here, I didn’t over-accessorize, and I just wore my favorite cat-eye sunnies and a pair of brown booties. This would’ve easily looked cute with opaque tights, or a blazer/jacket for cooler weather. 




Banana Republic compensated me for this post. All opinions expressed are my own.
