Black Swan Wildflower

I have partnered up with LuLu*s again to bring you a "LuLu*s all day long" series for the transition from relaxing summer girl to busy fall woman! It is no secret fall is approaching us, I mean you can read it from almost any fashion blogger who has put a post out in the last two weeks. I have spoken about adding little accessories, or mixing summer staples with new fall trends for this transition time, but what do we do now that our schedules have suddenly been filled?

I will be taking one key item from LuLu*s each Wednesday & showing how to style it on the go! Whether it is coffee date with a friend in the morning, to shopping during the day, to a dinner night out - I will show you how to stay fabulous from 8am to 8pm! This week I am featuring the Black Swan Wildflower sweater!

While the weather seems to still be warm, there is always that little chance of shower or cool breeze that can come in a split second. Tying the sweater around my waist gives me the option if I need something to keep me warm, however if not needed, it doesn't interrupt my stylish attire!

This is probably one of my fav. outfits to date! The pink pleated maxi skirt is so comfy and romantic that it can almost be styled with anything. I added a lace crop top to contrast with the pleats, also giving some texture.  I have the sweater hung over my shoulders but not tied in front so the sleeves can hang down making a statement down my sides. The material of the sweater is very heavy so even just having it on my solders provided lots of warmth!

The final look of the day is when you are home lounging about or headed off to a friends house on Monday night for the new season of The Bachelor! The sweater has an underneath soft layer that is separate from the crochet lace over top. This allows for you to curl up on the couch and be super comfy without worrying about snagging the lace. I threw on some jeggings and leopard flats to finish it off! 

Come back next Wednesday to see my how I take nude heels from normal to sass for those "my feet hurt but I look great" days!

A sweater that you can pull over what you're already wearing is so nice during the fall!
