Cold Temperatures and Cozy Sweaters

Happy Thursday loves!  This week has definitely been tough getting back into the swing of things after the holidays, but with the new blog launch, I’ve felt a new surge of energy with the new year.  I hope you all have been enjoying the site, and I’d love to hear what you think of it!

With the holidays coming to an end, so does my love of Wisconsin’s snow/winter weather.  For the next 3 months, consider over-sized sweaters, leggings, and boots my best friends.  This sweater from Apricot Lane Peoria (of course!!) is my go to this season.  It’s super warm and cozy!

Because of the chunkiness of the sweater like this, it’s best to pair it with a form fitting bottom:  leggings or skinny jeans.  I got these leggings from Victoria’s Secret PINK a long time ago as a gift.  They are STILL my go-to.  I swear by Victoria’s Secret leggings that last forever without being see-through.

I actually borrowed my roommates black boots to complete the look!  Isn’t it crazy that I don’t own a pair of tall black boots???  Anyway, I didn’t want to detract from the beautiful mauve color of the sweater with my brown boots so Kayla lent me her super cute pair (you’ll remember her from my my last post).

I kept the accessories pretty neutral with my fossil watch and the usual rings, with the exception of my new statement earrings from Charming Charlie!  These earrings are gorgeous and add some major flare to the outfit.

A off the shoulder chunky sweater is perfect for both happy hour with coworkers and an afternoon of running errands.  It’s flattering on any body type and is an effortless look for any occasion.  Off the shoulder is a crazy big trend right now, so I challenge you to try a few out next time your out shopping at the mall!  Trust me, it’s everywhere!  I promise you won’t be disappointed.

  1. I am for sure stuck on my black off the shoulder slashed up back chunky sweater 😉 got it on today with my gray leggings and black boots; and of course since the back is all slashed out I have a neon pink tank underneath… because color! and I’m loud!
