This sweater is a recent purchase; I bought it on the same trip to Zara as the blue pants. I’ll admit that my thought process was rather primitive. It went something like this: “Ooohhh, stripes…” and then I picked up the sweater, revealing elbow patches. “Ooohhh, elbow patches”. Done.
Putting together an outfit around it didn't require much more thought. Boyfriend jeans seemed to fit the preppy vibe of the elbow patches, and bright accessories kept it feminine. This outfit was perfectly comfortable for a windy but sunny afternoon spent wandering around with my boyfriend. (And believe me; after I ate what was maybe the largest wet burrito ever, I was thankful that I skipped the skinnies and went with a roomier fit!)
