Weekend Wardrobe: Acorn Favorite Cotton Sweater Style Boards Redux

Acorn Favorite Cotton Sweater in Plum

At the beginning of the year I posted a comment about the Acorn Favorite Cotton Sweater in three different jewel-tone colors that I received from my husband for Christmas.  I love those sweaters, and even created some style boards in which they are featured.  The colors were perfect for winter, but I recently found out that these same sweaters come in three springlike colors as well.  I could not resist coming up with some ideas on how to wear these pastel-colored sweaters for mild weather.  My style boards feature a casual feel, perfect for an easy-going day in town or relaxed overnight getaway to the beach or the lake.  The sweaters make a perfect top layer for chilly nights or mornings, and can be removed during the heat of the day.

Clockwise from top left: Acorn Favorite Cotton Sweater in Iris; L.L. Bean Women's Elbow-Sleeve Scoopneck Pima Cotton Tee in Brightwater Blue; Pendleton Women's Cotton Rib Tank in Steel Blue; L.L. Bean Women's Sunwashed Canvas Cropped Pants in Khaki.

Clockwise from top left: Acorn Favorite Cotton Sweater in Turquoise; L.L. Bean Women's Elbow-Sleeve Scoopneck Pima Cotton Tee in White; Pendleton Women's Cotton Rib Tank in Mesa Rose; L.L. Bean Women's Sunwashed Canvas Cropped Pants in Burnished Orange.

Obviously these basic outfits need some accessories, and I think the same colorful set of four can be used for all three ensembles:

Our weather is still cool enough in the morning and evening to require a warm layer like a sweater, so now would be the perfect time for these ensembles.  And of course, once A/C season (i.e., summer) arrives, the sweaters will be indispensable for the great indoors!  Have a happy Mother's Day tomorrow, and also congratulations to the recent UGA graduates.  Vacation time is here!
