It’s officially that time of the year when it’s cool enough to wear a sweater in the morning, but it’s warm by the end of the day. I’ve found the perfect solution with my new short sleeve sweater!

I’ll be honest, I always thought the concept of a short sleeve sweater was silly, but I have completely changed my mind! This sweater gives me cozy fall vibes but doesn’t make me too hot when it gets to the 80s later in the day. I know fall is here in full force for a lot of the country, but in Louisiana, we probably won’t have highs below 80 until late October. In keeping with this fall’s Victorian trend, I added a cameo brooch and a braided updo to pull the outfit together. I can already tell I’ll be wearing this sweater a lot over the next few months!

What trend are you looking forward to rocking this fall? Let me know in the comments!

    Short sleeved sweaters for the win! My mom has a gorgeous pale pink one that I’m actually borrowing in Chicago right now. And she’s even got a knitted tank that’s basically a tank top sweater. Things you have to do to pretend it’s cool in the south, haha!

    • I’m sure you’ll be in full sweaters and coats pretty soon!

  • I was finally back to seeing patients today after the holiday weekend was extended by TWO snow days. I was going a little crazy being cooped up inside! The clinic had faux marble counter tops, so of course I had to take a pic of my stethoscope on it. (oh, Instagram, you’re weird, but fun). #medschool #lifeloveandmedicine
