Fall For Knits


Don’t you just love sweater weather? Honestly, it’s just the quintessential time to cozy up to that special someone with a mug of warm cider and a good book. Not to mention apple picking, finding the perfect pumpkin, and all the other fantastic fall activities. With all this great stuff to do, the perfect fall look shouldn’t be too complicated. My go-to of course is the chunky knit sweater in a range of neutrals. While shopping for the perfect fall sweater, be mindful of the different types of yarns for your choosing. From thick-to-thin varieties, wool or cotton, even a boucle…there are tons of options. As for color, I am obsessed with oatmeal and ivory for that classic, comfy layered look. It just feels so of-the-season, don’t you think? Plus, ivory sweaters pair really well with a favorite flannel and your boyfriend jeans.


Then, for the home, I suggest staying within the same color palette and opting for these more textural rugs. One option is a chunky shag rug, like this one from Orian Rugs. The creamy ivory color goes with practically everything and the rug’s style itself can veer from loft-modern to global bohemian depending on your home’s existing style. Another option is to go for a chunkier woven wool rug. A great neutral base for any room, I am torn between whether I love the all ivory colored rug or whether I prefer tonal shades of ivory to grey to charcoal. Both are a winner in my book when it comes to getting your home ready for fall this year!
