Happy first week of fall!! With all the fall fashion flooding my Instagram the past few months, it feels like fall has been here for weeks. I love fall fashion trends, if you want to read more about my love for fall fashion I posted about it here and here. I love fall fashion outfits so much but because of my location get very few opportunities to dress for the occasion.
Last Thursday, my husband said we should go to Denver next weekend and without skipping a beat I said sounds great. He has friends that will be in Denver for a geology conference and my oldest friend that just had a baby lives in Denver. Booking a trip so last minute stresses some people out but its par for the course with the two of us, we love spontaneous adventures.
I have really been looking forward to trips outside of Palm Springs. Don’t get me wrong, I love Palm Springs, but we are almost in October and every day the thermometer still reads 100 degrees. So when I have a trip planned to somewhere with cooler temps I count down the minutes until we hop on that plane.
Last year, when we were living in Birmingham, AL I stocked up on all kinds of fall weather clothes, now looking back it probably wasn’t my smartest choice. I knew I was moving to the desert and yet I couldn’t stop buying new sweaters and boots. One of the sweaters I purchased in multiple colors is this BP flare sleeve sweater from Nordstrom. At one point they were on sale for $23 so I really took advantage of that.
Side Note: Birmingham, Alabama in the fall is a wonderful place. The weather is PERFECT, the leaves are changing and everyone is in such a good mood because college football is back on.
Yesterday, I posted this picture on Instagram and got SO MANY questions about this sweater. I LOVE this sweater so I was so happy to see that my Instagram friends did as well. But there is one problem when I went to send links for this sweater I couldn’t find it anywhere; it’s sold out everywhere! I scoured the internet for hours looking for this sweater, and nothing. Believe me, I looked everywhere!
So I did what I know how to do best and I went on a shopping mission. Luckily, I found some super close dupes to this sweater. I hope you love these below-listed bell sleeve sweaters as much as I do.
