Sparkly Sweater-off

Since it’s almost Black Friday, let’s talk some shopping!

I love, LOVE this sweater from asos. First of all, sequins. Second of all, argyle. Do I really need a third of all?
However, I’m being strong and not buying it. I mean, I love and ADORE sequins, but this is like “HI I’m a giant sequin!” I mean, look at the back:
That’s a whole lot of glitter.
Instead, I went for this pretty (and decidedly more low-key) option from J. Crew:

The white sequined stripes are subtle but still have a lovely shimmer, and the rugby stripes keep it all grounded with a slightly sporty vibe. I still have a secret crush on the first sweater though-definitely keeping my eye open for subtly sequined argyle!

    I love both of these and was seriously just looking at them yesterday! That J Crew one is awesome.
