Happy Monday friends! With fall in full swing, I’m currently all about cozy knits. There are few things I love quite as much as pulling on my favorite cable-knit sweater, brewing a cup of tea, and curling up with a book. One great thing about knitted sweaters is that the styles have remained relatively the same for years, making them wonderful pieces to source at vintage shops. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite vintage knits from across Etsy, including a lot of sweaters, and a couple of sweater dresses! If you are still looking for that perfect cozy piece for fall, or just for a bit of autumnal inspiration, I hope you enjoy perusing these vintage picks.

Happy Monday friends! I’m starting to plan for my fall capsule wardrobe, even though the weather has gone back up to summer-esque proportions this week. I recently pulled all of my autumn clothing out of storage, and began to evaluate what I wanted to keep, get rid of, and purchase for the new season. Unfortunately a few of my pieces were attacked by some moths with expensive taste, so I’m anticipating having to replace a few more pieces than usual. While I’ll be thrifting and sewing several items, I also want to purchase from a few ethical brands this fall, both so that I can try them out, and so I can share my experiences with you. Here are some of the pieces I’m eyeing for autumn!
