Fall Sweater Roundup (on a Budget!)

So let’s just say I’m very picky when it comes to sweaters. Don’t get me wrong, they don’t have to be cashmere or designer (did I mention I’m the bargain queen?), but I just happen to go through a very elaborate checklist when I try on a sweater:

Is it soft? Does it itch even the slightest bit? Is it slouchy enough? Is it long enough to wear with leggings, but short enough to tuck? Is it thin enough to be cute, but thick enough to be warm?

Trust me: the list goes on. So when I do a sweater roundup post, you know it’s because I love these sweaters. They’ve passed the test. They’re on my favorites list… That says alot.
