Every now and then I stumble upon a wardrobe staple so perfect I want to shout about it from the rooftops and the striped number in today’s post is exactly that! I spotted this La Ligne striped sweater in my daily perusal of Nordstrom’s new arrivals and it had all the makings of a go-to piece in my closet — the chunky knit, the rolled neck, the slightly cropped length… it’s honestly just perfect in every way. I find 100% cotton sweaters like this one extremely wearable because they’re comfy, super soft (I have no tolerance for itchy sweaters!), and hold up well to repeat wear. This one also comes in three colors and I’m extremely tempted to order the other two! I wind up doing a ton of my shopping from Nordstrom because it’s just nice to be able to order clothing, beauty (just reordered my favorite face oil), and baby things (I can’t wait to see these little snow boots on Teddy!) all in one place, especially with the holidays somehow already sneaking up on us!

I also wanted to write a little P.S. about these suede booties. I’ve long been on the hunt for a replacement pair of my all-time favorite booties (a pair with a stacked heel by Joie that’s no longer made that I wish I’d had the foresight to order in duplicate!) and this pair from Madewell is a pretty close runner-up. These have the same stacked heel (more practical/less precious than a suede or leather one in my opinion) and a similar heel and shaft height, plus a zipper that makes them even easier to get on and off. The only differences are the color (a little more chocolate than tan, but I like it!) and a slightly more squared toe. 100% worth trying if you’re searching for something similar!
