What I'm Wearing: Chaps Cable-Knit Sweater

Lately the weather is lending itself to light layers and cozy knits, and right now my Chaps cable-knit sweater has become an absolute wardrobe staple. I've been wearing mine with skinny jeans and printed button-downs for a preppy-with-a twist vibe but they'd pair equally well with skirts or layered over dresses for a more feminine feel. The perfect blend of soft and warm, these cotton-blend sweaters are ideal for those with sensitive skin (totally not itchy, which I love). Chaps sent me a cable-knit sweater in emerald green and another in dark plum, two rich colors I'm loving for fall. Now I want one in ivory, black and pink (how cute would it look paired with a leopard pencil skirt and sequin clutch?!) The price on these sweaters is just right, too, only $34.99 at Kohl's (down from $50) which means you can stock up!

Love the outfit! Been wanting to order those jeans at but I'm not sure about the fit and they don't have them in the store. I know they are junior sized, so how did you find they fit you? Thanks!

OMG! Those jeans! I love how they're subtle, but have a bit of sass to them. Love it!
