Asymmetrical Sweater & Floral Shorts

Confession time: I have a pretty unhealthy obsession with sweaters. There is something about them that is so cozy and comforting, and if the weather would allow for it, I would probably wear one every day of the week.

When I saw this particular sweater on the sale rack at Nordstrom, I was immediately smitten. It was quite a bit more than I ever normally spend, but this top was special. The asymmetrical hemlines on the front and sleeves were so fascinating to me, and after much debate, I decided it was worth the splurge if it meant cutting back on other purchases for a while. (Some sacrifices are worth making!)

    […] I was immediately drawn to this flowy top because of the unique pleating detail and the longer, asymmetric cut. (Clearly, I love asymmetry!) […]
