I picked up this sweater at Nordstrom's Half-Yearly Sale after Christmas. I always love shopping the post-holiday sales, and this warm pumpkin-spice colored sweater was one of my best finds this time. This BP pullover is so buttery soft that the only way I could think to describe it would be like vegan cashmere.
I used to love luxurious cashmere before I went vegan- I always thought that wool shearing didn't hurt the sheep and was even good for them, but that's not true at all. I had no idea that sheep often die in the process and almost always end up with bleeding wounds. Now I turn to cotton and synthetic knits, which are still warm but can lack that extra coziness. This sweater fills the void- it's light and swingy enough to be suited to California's more temperate winters, but it's got that smooth cashmere texture I love with none of the harm.
I also added on some of my favorite accessories to this otherwise simple outfit. I splurged out on this Stella McCartney cherry red Falabella wallet. I love Stella McCartney- she's the only luxury designer that doesn't use leather and other animal based materials, instead opting for innovative vegan leathers. And I'm wearing my Kylie Cosmetics Kristen lip kit again- I've been obsessed with this color since I got it and I basically wear it every single day.
Happy Monday, loves!
