Fall Fashion: Knit Sweaters

Fall has officially arrived in Chicago and I'm so excited! I don't know about you, but as soon as the air gets crisp and the leaves start to change, I want to start singing "Sweater Weather" (if you know, you know). Which leads us to today's post - sweaters! I love fall fashion because it can be so effortless. Throw on jeans and a cute sweater, and you are good to go. 

Today I've rounded up some of the best knit sweaters for fall in my favorite colors, patterns, and styles. But first, my go-to sweater/jean combo.

Fall Fashion: White after Labor Day

A couple weekends ago, a group of friends and I met for brunch at Hampton Social. One-by-one, we each showed up, all wearing white. It was quite the coincidence! It got me thinking about the "no white after Labor Day" rule. White is one of my favorite shades to wear, so I've never shied away from wearing it come September.
 
Inspired by our brunch coincidence, I'm officially kicking off my month of Fall Fashion with my favorite pieces, all in beautiful shades of white.

Month in Photos - September

 It's officially fall and I'm so excited! October is always one of my favorite months and I just have a feeling this one is going to be great. But, before we officially kick-off this month, it's time to recap September. 
 
Catching up on Lavender Elizabeth's September
 
September Highlights:
 
1. Right at the end of August, my mom had a knee replacement, so I spent a lot of the month at my parents' house. We went to physical therapy appointments, watched HGTV, and snuggled the pups.
 
2. My best friend, Betty, came to visit over Labor Day weekend. We celebrated a friend's birthday, had a spa day, and enjoyed a much needed day off downtown.
 
3. The best part of the month: my sister came to visit. She was here to help take care of my mom, but I spent as much time with her as I could. We were able to take a day trip to Chicago for some quality sister time, filled with shopping, showing her my apartment, and introducing her to some friends. It was the best ten days having her here.

4. I added some finishing touches to my apartment, including a new mirror, a second dresser, and bathroom shelves.
