There are two fabrics that people, myself included, can’t get enough of in the winter and they are velvet and chenille. I’d throw cashmere in there too but velvet and chenille are much more budget friendly. Chenille is so cozy and soft and one of those fabrics that you can’t help but touch. Last month when I was looking at Macy’s for a birthday gift for my mom I came across this chenille sweater on sale and of course had to pick it up for myself along with my mom’s gifts.
The sweater is in the color “rare emerald” but it’s definitely a little more blue based than green giving off a more teal look than emerald. I still think the sweater and color are beautiful but I do wish it was more emerald. The sweater is as soft and cozy as you would think. It also features a seam down the center which is so popular this year.
Sweater: Macy’s | Leggings: Nordstrom Rack | Boots: UGG
I wore this sweater with leggings and UGGs for these photos, but to work last week I wore this sweater with dark grey pants and black flats. This is the kind of sweater that’s so easy to dress up or down. Wear it with black dress pants or a black pencil skirt for a more dressy look or wear it like I did here with leggings or with jeans and make it more casual. I live for versatile pieces!
Have a great Monday – I have 4 work days (including today) until winter break!
