Hey friends!! I hope your week has gotten off to a great start. First, can we just talk about how in the world we only have two more days of October? I swear time goes into overdrive after college. BUT that means it’s almost birthday month so I am pretty excited about that!
If you know me, you probably knew this blog topic was coming haha. Today’s post won’t be super long, just wanted to share some of my chenille obsession with you all. Spread the chenille love and such. So you know how they say you can have too much of a good thing? Lol well my husband might agree with that statement, but if you ask me, that rule does not apply to chenille sweaters. Or any other extremely soft piece of clothing. So today I’m going to share some of my favorite chenille sweaters that are out there right now + also talk a little bit about how I like to combine all kinds of textures in my outfits this time of year. Let’s get to it!

Chenille Sweaters I’m Loving + You Need
I’ve been on the chenille train since before it was really even a thing last year, and I am still here for it. It is SO SOFT yall, why wouldn’t you want all that soft, cozy goodness in your closet? The one I’m wearing here is from last year, but don’t worry, I’m going to link some similar to it! P.S. all of the ones I’m linking below are well under $100, so go crazy.
How To Mix Textures
All the different textures are part of the reason I love fall and winter clothing so much: leather, suede, velvet, faux fur, sherpa, chenille, etc. They’re so cozy and chic! And I usually can’t pick just one. So, why not wear all the textures? I’ve always really loved mixing patterns, but you have to be strategic about it, and the same goes for mixing textures. Basically, to make sure I’m not over doing it, I’ll wear longer piles/chunkier knits on top and shorter piles/leather on bottom, or vice versa. (pile just means the raised surface of the fabric!) In other words, I would pair a chunky chenille sweater with a smooth velvet skirt like I did here. An example of what you wouldn’t want to do is pair a faux fur coat with a sherpa pullover (that would be wild, I know, but you get the idea haha) because it’s a bit much…and you would probably die of heatstroke haha. Overall, balance is the key when it comes to wearing multiple textures in one outfit!
About the Outfit
Like I said, this sweater is from last year but it’s a slightly cropped turquoise chenille and I love this thing. I’ve paired it with a velvet ruffle mini skirt which I got last year from Madewell. I promise I’ve found some really similar items that I know you’ll love though! I threw on my favorite over the knee boots and finished off the outfit with these amazing earrings that I made at the Kendra Scott Color Bar for my birthday last year! Pro Tip: Slightly off topic, but in case you didn’t know, if you go to Kendra Scott during your birthday month you can get HALF OFF ANY ONE ITEM OMG.
