The Perfect Chunky Knit Sweater for Fall

Hey guys, if you recall I shared this cardigan in my Instagram stories last week and said I’d be sharing it as an outfit soon. Well, here it is. I present to you THE BEST cardigan for fall. This is one of the outfits we shot in Pasadena this past week. By the way, can I just say how much I love Pasadena? The weather was a perfect 86 degrees and as the sun went down, we were greeted by a light cool breeze. The city is so picturesque and two of my favorite things are that it’s the home of the Huntington Library and it also offers a wide variety of vegan dining options— one of my faves is Real Food Daily (yelp them!).

Ok, now let me tell ya about this cardi. This chunky knit oversized cardigan is super soft, cozy, and best of all, it’s wool-free! I can not tell you how hard it is to find chunky knit cardigans for fall and winter. It seems like 90% of all cardigans manufactured are made with wool or other animal materials. For as long as I could remember, I’ve been allergic to wool. I had always loved chunky knit oversized cardigans made of wool. They looked so warm and cozy but I wouldn’t even dare try them on because the times I did, my skin would become so irritated. It wasn’t until I worked at James Perse that I found out I wasn’t allergic to cashmere, so I started buying that. Then last year, I went vegan and slowly started eliminated all animal products from my wardrobe, including all my cashmere pieces. So now when I find a really well made, chunky knit cardigan that’s not made of wool or animal materials, I immediately jump on it. This is one of those pieces. The material is a little heavy, but not in a bad way, it has the perfect weight to it. I love the oversized fit and it has pockets! It also has beautiful movement and pairs equally as well with jeans and a tee. If you buy one cardigan this fall, I would suggest investing in this piece! I’m OBSESSED with it!

This is such a comfortable and cozy outfit. It was perfect for sitting at a coffee shop while catching up on some computer work. It may be over 100 degrees outside but indoors everyone is blasting the AC and I’m always freezing, so I carry a cardigan with me everywhere. The one I’m wearing here is from Anthropologie from last year. Its so hard to find a good chunky knit cardigan that isn’t made from wool, to which I’m allergic and also I don’t wear animal products. I found another nice one that is also wool-free and, comes in 3 different colors and it’s on sale! It’s actually part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (ends August 5th!), so go snag one before they’re all gone!

This tee from Urban Outfitters is sooo soft and perfect for everyday. I bought 3 of them and have been wearing them nearly everyday. They’re such a staple piece that you can pair with jeans, like I did here, or tucked into a pencil skirt paired with heels for a casual chic look.

We’re still in Utah and it’s been pretty chilly the past few days. I was looking forward to the cooler weather so I packed these over the knee boots and this cozy, knit cardigan. You guys, these boots are THE best. If you’re like me and have a really hard time finding over-the-knee boots because you have gigantic calves, then these are the boots for you. They stretch a lot but aren’t loose at the top and the half zipper on the back makes them super easy to put on. These are hands down my favorite boots. I also love the thick heel, they give you a little more support and makes them quite comfortable.
