What I Wore: Oatmeal Sweater w/ Red Fringe Scarf & Converse

One of my outfits that made the cut during my recent closet purge was this one, and I’m THRILLED to tell you that this fringe scarf has been restocked in FOUR colors, including this oxblood color. WOOT!

Funny thing, I wouldn’t typically think of this sweater as one of my go-to wardrobe pieces, and it may not even be familiar to my regular readers, but I’ve had it for almost a year. It was from the J.Jill early spring collection last year. At the time, I loved the modern cut — relaxed without being oversized — and the high-low hemline. It skims my upper body nicely without clinging, and it holds its shape through multiple wears without bagging out.

The color, also, is highly versatile, which is the main reason I kept it in my new minimized closet. I knew I’d be able to wear it with a variety of scarves and other accessories, plus I can layer it under a quilted vest or leather jacket.

This fringe trim infinity scarf in port is the perfect pop of color in this otherwise neutral outfit.

This time, I kept it casual by pairing it with cropped skinny jeans and Converse sneakers.

The red perforated tote coordinates with the scarf, and I also like how it pulls out the red stripe in my Converse. I often find myself wearing red when I wear these shoes. This bag is no longer available, but I linked to a similar one below. Sole Society and Poverty Flats make a ton of cute bags at a moderate price point.
