Nov 8th, Oversize Sweater

I’m feeling the need for something extremely cozy today. Maybe it’s because it was so cold, windy and wet out yesterday.

My first attempt is jeans, a white shirt and this oatmeal colored cardigan thing. However, it’s just too shapeless and dull. There’s nothing exciting about this look.

On the left is my re-worked outfit.

Rather than jeans, I’m wearing my black Sanctuary pants which are made of the softest cotton. Plus, they are very thick- so no skin could possibly show through.

On top I’ve replaced the limp cardigan with this large oversize oatmeal colored sweater. Here is why I love this sweater- I can eat WHATEVER I want for lunch and there will be absolutely no evidence of a ‘food baby’. This sucker hides all!

The key is to balance it out- since I’m going with skinny and fitted on bottom, I can go large on top.

To complete the look, I’ve added black boots, a necklace and a cool purse. I love the stud details. Gives my look a little ‘edge’ to it, don’t you think?

Do you have a favorite ‘go to’ outfit for days when you just want to be cozy, or just want to lounge around. Not that I’m lounging today. I’m working, I swear!

When wearing something large and oversize like this, be sure to balance the other half of the outfit with something very fitted!

Sweater: Banana Republic, Leggings: Marshalls, Boots: Nordstroms, Necklace: H&M, Purse: Gift
