The Fair Isle Sweater

           The Fair Isle sweater is a piece with staying power. They’re fashionable, warm, and come in so many wonderful patterns. Many of the fashion blogs I read have featured this style of sweater (see how other bloggers wore it below).
            I picked up this sweater over the summer and since the weather has cooled down, I’ve been trying to think up a way to style it with a twist. In my mind, the expected route is to pair the sweater with jeans and a pair of riding boots. Despite my consideration, I was stumped.
            Enter—Pinterest. I randomly stumbled across a photo of fashion blogger Sealed with Style

I loved how she chose the pop of pink as an accent under the sweater. What a simple answer! I decided to go a step further and integrate another Pinterest discovery—using bold stud earrings as collar studs (credit to B Soup).

I'd be remiss if I didn't include Blair from Atlantic Pacific

Thriftfully Yours,
