Sweaters Rock!

Hello there!
It has been some time since I have done an outfit post, so I thought I would get one together with some of my favorite elements for the cold weather. If I want to dress warm & cozy and cute & trendy, here is what I run to... a sweater!

I LOVE sweaters! And this season I have loved layering with them. Many people stay away from sweaters because they can add weight by hiding your figure, but I have found that adding some layers, like a long sleeve cotton tee, turtle neck, or button up, you can make the sweater much more flattering to your shape.

Another thing that helps with the fluffiness of sweaters is wearing a necklace. Being the right length, a necklace can help make the sweater less frumpy. This is something I always try to use to work the sweater. If I do want more of a frumpy look, I will trade the necklace out for a scarf.

And of course boots!
You've got to have the boots. I have yet to answer the rave and get me a pair of brown riding boots, but I did invest in these awesome brown combat style boots this season, and let me tell you I have been wearing the fire out of them! They just go with so much and put an edge on just about any outfit.

I can't take myself seriously. hehe

My hair is finally long enough to pull off this hairstyle! Yay! I have tried it before, but even though my hair is pretty long, layers always complicate things. You have probably seen this look on Pinterest, that is where I found it.

And then here is a cute little ring that I just love. 

Sweater: Gap
Plaid button up: thrifted
Skinny jeans: NY&Co.
Cross necklace: Purse-a-nality
Necklace & earring set: Charming Charlie's
Heart ring: Aerie's 
Brown Combat Boots: Target

What are your favorite winter wear pieces?


  1. I LOVE sweaters! They are a must for me in the winter, since I don't like being cold.

  2. I love this look, and I was always afraid of sweaters because they made me look big! I am just going to have to try your method, seems just about right. And, I love that hairstyle! :)

  6. Hi! Just stopping by from the FTF blog hop! New follower on your lovely blog, would love to have you stop by my blog sometime and follow back if you like. I have been loving me some plaid this fall/winter. I haven't worn it layered with a sweater though, may have to do that.
