Friday Favorites

Friday is here! YAY! I am so ready for the weekend. So, in all honesty, I am not a cropped top girl. Maybe in my younger days, but….yeh, not so much now. However, I have to say, I was very pleasantly surprised when I slipped into this cropped funnel neck cable knit sweater from Express. They may have converted me. 😀

Outfit Details: Funnel Neck Cable Knit Sweater (wearing XS) // High-rise Cozy Fleece Jean Legging (wearing size 2) // Buckle Peep Toe Heeled Booties (wearing 8.5)

I love the cable knit design, the color is divine (it really brightens and lightens the whole face), it’s very soft and even though it’s got a shorter length, it doesn’t feel as short as some other cropped tops I’ve tried on. I don’t feel as exposed (i.e. the midriff area), I think is what it is. The sleeves are on the longer side (and I have long arms), so just keep that in mind if you decide to purchase. Personally, that doesn’t bother me because in the fall/winter months, I like the extra sleeve length to pull up on my wrists (I’m always cold). But, you can always cuff the sleeves. 🙂

With a shorter length sweater, you want to select a high-waist bottom. I’ve paired this cable knit sweater with high waist, light wash jeans for a laid back weekend look. But, you could also wear this sweater over dresses or pair with high waist skirts.

Speaking of jeans, this pair that I’m wearing are so nice for the fall and winter months, especially if you live in a colder climate. And that’s all thanks to the fleece lining. The fleece material is not too heavy or bulky, but just enough to keep you warmer than your other jeans on a cold winter day. If you are not a fan of the light wash (or the high waist), you’ll be happy to know that Express also offers these in a mid-rise dark wash. Definitely consider picking these up; they’re just winter-friendly jeans that I’m sure you’ll get lots of wear out of.

Another favorite, also from Express, are these Peep Toe Booties. First of all, the cognac color is so rich and saturated. Just gorgeous! They are made of faux suede with gold buckle detailing which gives them such a chic look. Love the stacked block heel, which is about 3 3/4″. Available in whole and half sizes, these lovelies fit TTS.
