The Alma Pullover & Link Up

November 30, 2017

Sweater weather is here!  Do you love sweaters? I’ve always had a wild enthusiasm for cozy sweaters. I blame this on my mom’s influence.  My memories of her include a large linen closet,  filled with sweaters top to bottom!  (I’m not sure where the linen was, but who cares?)

Soft Surroundings gave me this sweater to share on my blog.  All thoughts and words are my own, as always.

The Alma Oversized Pullover

When Soft Surroundings invited me to pick something from their new collection, I fell in love with this sweater right away … the gray neutral tone with the subtle chevron pattern was so pretty.  And I was crazy over the dolman sleeves which fold up to reveal a bolder chevron pattern!  The cute pockets were just the cherry on top.

Wouldn’t this sweater be perfect after a cold day of skiing, around a fire pit with a hot chocolate?  I’m ready to plan a snow trip!  Until then, I’m sure it will gets of wear at school and on the weekends.

Other Outfit Details

The jeans and the booties are both Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks from way back in July.  Remember them?   The Ab-solution Jeans have a little tummy control which is so flattering.  The Vince Camuto booties are a great basic and come in gray and taupe.

This amazing leather cuff and crystal cuff bracelet is also from Soft Surroundings (c/0) and the earrings are Kendra Scott.

Soft Surroundings review


Thanks so much to everyone who linked up last week! So many fabulous looks!  I picked Emelia of The Em Alexander as my look of the week. Isn’t she darling?

So, how did the Black Friday/Cyber Week shopping go, Dolls?  I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m just about done with my Christmas shopping.  The sales were so good to me that I treated myself to a couple of things too.

Are you feeling the holiday spirit yet, Dear Readers?  I am!  We don’t have our tree yet, but we have the outside of our house decorated.  And I can’t wait for some holiday parties because you know I love an excuse to dress up!  See my list of ways to add some glam to your outfits this month. I bet you have some of these items in your closet already.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to share your style with us in the link up (remember you don’t need to be a blogger, you can share an Instagram post too!)

Fun & Fashion,

Dawn Lucy

    I’m a huge sweater lover also, Dawn!! Which is probably why I started knitting in the first place! Now my closet is filled, but does that stop me from getting more–no way!!

    Oh, I love those jeans – that split hem is fabulous. I’m also drooling over that leather cuff – very cool! Happy Friday!

    I’m a cozy sweater lover too and so many of the items offered at Soft Surroundings are as dreamy as the one you chose. My misfortune to leave in SoCal where the temps are still in the 70s at the end of November ?. Hurray for you to be nearly done with your gift shopping. It just leaves more time in the season to shop for yourself ?. Thanks for sharing your styling ideas and for the link up. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.

    Your new Soft Surroundings sweater looks SO snuggly, dearest Dawn!! I am most definitely a “sweater girl” – I always say it’s the only thing about winter that I like! – and the colour and pattern of this one are right up my alley. Plus, it has pockets!! ? And of course your flare jeans are fab, too…the slit hem detail gets me drooling every time!! ? Happy Friday!!
