The Lola Sweater
from Amalli Talli
‘a store for Tall Ladies’Some days ago, I shared a blog post, TRIPping, which highlighted the clothing I packed for my upcoming trip to Phoenix. Since the temperature dropped, the feel of the winds called for a nice, cozy piece of outerwear, which could easily accessorize each of my looks; from professional to business casual to casual. I wore 6 different looks; however, only have photos to share of 4. You won’t be upset that I missed 3, no worries. I absolutely love this Lola Sweater from +Amalli Talli which I grabbed from the Cyber Monday sale. The sweater is extremely versatile, lightweight, cozy, and comfy. The color was a favorite of mine because it makes any look pop and matches well with all color tones. I’ll stop talking now and share with you how/what I paired the Lola Sweater with.
Lola on the GO
As I took off from San Antonio (60 degree weather), I paired Lola with a pair of Gap jeans; thick cuffed, a black high lo shirt, Leopard print belt, Hat, Cognac Booties, and my Dooney & Bourke tote. Each piece was chosen to fit perfectly with Lola as we headed for the sky.
I have never visited Phoenix, before and had very little time to do so on this trip; as I was going for a work training. I woke to a day with plans to have my laptop repaired, visiting friends, and a little work since that’s my life during the week, which called for a bit of comfort, but chic all in the same. Lola went for a busy day accessorizing a long-sleeved turtleneck shirt, which just so happens to be velvet. That shirt along with flare Gap jeans, Sam Edelman booties, and the leopard print belt from the day before were all parts that captured by busy day look. Not only was I comfortable, I was stylish and cozy for the Phoenix winds.
The training room was extremely cold and uncomfortable. I chose to dress Business Professional, although the training only called for Business Casual. Since no one at my job ever seems to know what that mean, I stuck to what I knew, and lived by my motto…you can never be overdressed. Lola was paired with a look from Banana Republic; of which both were Clearance grabs. The top is a striped, ruffled oxford shirt in white, pink, and maroon; paired with a fitted maroon pencil skirt and same colored booties. I figured I give a little monochromatic with this look. For the total classic look, I pinned my hair up to mimic that of a vintage hairstyle from the classic era. The look was definitely noticed and appreciated. Ahhhh, the feeling when people get you.
