There's nothing more beautiful than the transition from summer to fall. Yeah, there's that whole gorgeous changing leaves thing, of course. But what's even better? Being able to disappear into an oversized, ridiculously comfortable sweater and still say that you are dressing with style in mind is a beautiful thing. Pair those sweaters with some cute booties, distressed jeans, and cute accessories... and you've got yourself a winning outfit.
Of course, the benefits of fall go beyond just sweaters (I see you all with your pre-season Pumpkin Spice Lattes... ), but sweaters were blankets with sleeves long before the Snuggie came along and if that's not reason enough to love them, I don't know what is.
