Recap Of My Weekend
How was everyone’s weekend? I did not do too much, which is really nice. I did a little bit of work so that I will not be overwhelmed going into work this week. However, I did treat myself to some Colectivo Cold Brew and Aloha Poke Bowl – they opened a new location by me (so dangerous because I love Poke!). Also, my blush sneakers came in the mail. I’ve been wanting blush sneakers for a while now and I am so excited to be wearing mine to Disney World!
This weekend I also started shooting more Fall outfits. Unfortunately, after 3 outfits I was done. It is too hot to be wearing sweaters outside. It was close to 100 degrees!
Keeping It Basic
However, as I was planning my outfits, I noticed I lean towards basic pieces for Fall. I don’t know why but I gravitate towards anything that is classic. I rely on the fabric and fit to elevate my outfit. Even the the color of my choices are very neutral. I can’t get enough of camel during Fall!
So Classy In Front, So Adventurous In The Back
But I do try to keep it fun as well. If you noticed this sweater of mine, it looks like a classic knitted sweater. It has a slight slouch to it – aka super cozy. When I turn around, it has a split back or some would say an open back.
The front of this outfit is classic and tailored and totally work appropriate. When I turn around the back is an unexpected surprise. I decided to have fun with the open back by wearing a lace bralette. I’m all about lace bralettes and I think wearing it this way is a great way to show-off the lace while still looking classy. This outfit to me screams business in the front and party in the back.
Top 6 Open Back Sweaters
I know my sweater is old, so I thought I’d share my favorite open back sweaters.
What are your thoughts on the open sweater? Would you ever wear an outfit that is all business in the front and adventurous in the back?
