    it's getting quite a bit colder here, and we've definitely made the transition to full-on sweaters-and-boots weather. every year around this time, when the temps drop for winter, I like to stock up on cozy sweaters from jcrew and jcrew factory. (the sweater I'm wearing here is from last year, but a couple other styles I love are here and here, as well as below). jcrew and jcrew factory are my go-tos for easy, casual sweaters because their prices are always fantastic, they each offer a good range of styles, and the quality is good. I've included some of the sweaters currently on my shopping list below, so be sure to scroll all the way down to shop!
    the perfect seven necklace I'm wearing is coming soon to the online store - so be on the look out for it! it's a personal favorite, and is a style that holds a special meaning to me (more on that later, though). the cross necklace is another favorite - and I love to layer it with other, shorter pieces.
    don't forget that you can now shop straight from my instagram feed! sign up at shopstyle.it to get items pictured sent straight to your inbox.

    layer a long necklace with one or two shorter, delicate styles to make more of an impact than wearing just one necklace alone.
    when you layer multiple necklaces - even delicate ones - keep your earrings and / or bracelets on the smaller side. your layered look should be the primary jewelry focus, and large earrings or millions of bracelets can be too much.
