Lightweight sweaters for fall. Tee: Handknit, "Sweet Lil' Tee" pattern; Coat: Burberry; Jeans: AG Jeans Bootcut.

Last Sunday, the Daylight Saving Time ended and we did "fall backward." (as in Spring Forward/Fall Backward, for those of you not in the U.S.) And as if the weather finally realized it was time to move on, it rained on Monday. 

And today, I officially feel chilly in my sleeveless top and PJ shorts. This, my friends, officially marks the beginning of "colder season" in Southern California. 

Obviously, I wait all year for this time to wear all my handknits. Socks for bedtime and morning, sweaters and shawls for walking the dogs, and hats for rainy days. And I like to wear lightweight sweaters like my Sweet Lil' Tee for this transitional time into more colder season. 

 

Although the tee has cap sleeves, it is knitted in 100% merino wool. It is very insulating and therefore, all it needs is a light coat or a jacket to complete the look for the season. 

To accessorize, I like to keep things simple -- a men's watch ("borrowed" from my husband), orange brown lipstick, with tall heels to match the bootcut jeans.
