have you ever done an instagram poll?
i did for the very first time recently and it was actually to determine whether or not i needed this sweater. turns out, people were split. of the five votes i received (thank you, fab five!), the opinion was mixed -three thought it was a no, while the other two told me to go for it, girl (well not really but they voted “yes” which is the same thing). i initially left the madewell store empty-handed, but after thinking about the sweater all weekend, i ended up going back to snag it (and at 25% off, too!). while i absolutely took other’s opinions to heart, ultimately, i wanted to follow my own and it led me to this fringed sweater, perfect for pairing with all of my high-waisted things.
a note about the fit -depending on the piece, i’m between an xs and small at madewell. i ended up opting for the small for a little extra room in the shoulders and a slightly blousier fit. this sweater is meant to fit boxy so if you’re looking for something closer to the body, this isn’t the knit for you. but i loved the idea of pairing it with a high-waisted cropped pant (like these jeans) or tucked into my skinny denim so i decided to snag it and i’m glad i did! the fringe detail gives it a little character -so much that i kept my accessories very simple -opting for my grey tassel earrings instead of my usual studs. i wore this outfit to christmas eve brunch and again on saturday when S and i treated ourselves to a midday showing of star wars.
lucky for you, this sweater is actually an additional 40% off the already discounted price through tonight (1/8)! just use code: YESPLEASE.
