nyc sweater weather + link up

thrifted colorful sweater and pattern mixing  - Thrifting DivaSorry for my mini absence, but took some time off to visit family and friends in New York City — my true hometown!  While San Diego is still enjoying 80 degrees weather, I had to pack the sweaters to visit New York.  So, Keren Charles of Two Stylish Kays and I decided to show off our stylish sweaters this week.  Please check out Keren’s blog to see how she rocked this awesome neutral sweater with the pops of red color.
Fabulous as usual!

thrifted colorful sweater and pattern mixing  - Thrifting DivaOf course, if you have been following me for some time, my claim to fame in fashion is the use of colors and patterns.  It’s of course much easier to find colors in the spring and summer wardrobes.  However, people tend to shy away from the bright colors during the fall and winter — except me!  When I packed for my NYC trip, I was really happy to pull out my comfy and colorful sweaters.

thrifted colorful sweater and pattern mixing  - Thrifting DivaI quickly spotted this J Crew sweater at the Salvation Army in San Diego for $4.00 (tagged at $8, but 50% off on the weekends).  But, of course, San Diego is still too hot to wear something like this.  I rocked it in NYC for a day of shopping with one of my besties.  It was very overcast and cloudy with temps barely reaching 70 degrees that day! So this sweater definitely brightened up my mood when I stepped outside.

A comfortable and chic outfit for a day of shopping!

    That sweater is gorgeous, great color and pattern. Most of the shirts I thrift are too big for me, but as you said, no one really notices under sweaters and two of those I got during my summer holidays I specifically picked up to layer under during winter.
