Sweater War

Next week Matt and I are going to New York for our engagement photos (a little late but we’ve had a long engagement!) The photography will be done by the adorable Karen Schlink of Karen Schlink Photography and we couldn’t be more excited!

Now the question on my mind is WHAT DO WE WEAR? I kept thinking, I used to work in fashion, my outfits need to be spectacular! So, I spent hours scouring the web for hot fashion finds and thinking “You can take the girl out of the city but not the city out of the girl.” I was wrong. It was only a matter of time but I of course have gone back to my roots and have ended up with a preppy ensemble from J.Crew. This girl is original from a sailing town in Maryland so I feel comfortable leaving the city style behind (and Matt is thrilled that there will be no ruffles or puffy sleeves in sight!)

Below is part of ensemble 1 which will be paired with kate spade ankle length jeans (the best out there ladies, check them out, I know the fit model very well) and tan Tory Burch Reva Flats. However, I am in debate between the cozy sweater to be worn on top. Outfit 2 will incorporate my go-to navy so for this look I was channeling Fall in NY. Sweater one is super soft but a little darker in person so I’m leery about the color (my tan from summer has sadly faded). Sweater two arrives on Monday and it’s from Crew Cuts so we’ll see if it fits, shrunken is in this year for sweaters so it’s promising!

Thoughts on the sweater war or engagement outfits in general? Please share your tips for this bride-to-be and all of our readers!!! Happy Fashion Friday!

Jillian…..I love both the sweaters, but I really love the pockets and boat neck of the 2nd choice… I’m so excited for you two to get your engagement pics! How fun!
