Summer is my favorite season. I love feeling the sun on my shoulders, and sitting outside for hours with a good book, and watching Lily roll around in the grass in the yard. There’s just something about summer that reminds me of the freedom that you feel as a kid when school lets out for the year.
But since my birthday is in September, of course I also enjoy fall. Nothing tastes better to me than a warm coffee outside when you can smell the fall crispness in the air. And my other favorite part about fall is that I can start wearing cashmere again! There is nothing like a soft, cozy sweater when the temperatures start to drop.
I have lots of long sleeved sweaters, but I actually don’t have many short sleeved options. Since I’m still trying to spend as much time as possible right now, I wanted something that would be warm, but not too heavy for these in-between temperatures. This short sleeved cashmere sweater from J. Crew is the perfect choice.
First of all, it is SO soft. Just so perfectly soft that it’s so incredibly comfortable to wear (not itchy at all) – the quality of the cashmere is clear! It’s very thin, so it doesn’t feel like you’re wearing something heavy or bulky. It’s really one of those things that you just don’t want to take off. I also love how perfectly fall-like the color is!
Sometime J.Crew sizing can confuse me, but I felt that this one was pretty true to size. I’m super petite, and the XXS fits me like a glove. It’s really rare for me to find a top that fits without me having to alter it in some way (usually, I just safety pin the neckline in the back, because my shoulders are so narrow), but this one fit perfectly without having to change anything.
I wish that I could buy this in every color! I’ll be keeping my eye on J. Crew’s site to find out the next time they’re having a sale on cashmere so I can pick up another one.
