Hey babes! I know its been over a week since my last post, but you know how busy things can get with the holidays. Last minute shopping, wrapping, all the running around and the family get-togethers. But better late than never.
A sweater and jeans combo is about as casual as it gets and this is something I would normally wear for an afternoon of shopping (minus maybe the open-toe sandals, weather permitting). I’ve been into looser fitting denim lately and today, I’m not only rocking a pair of cute boyfriends, but I’m literally wearing my boyfriend’s jeans. No matter how tall you are, men’s jeans will typically always fit too long in the leg, so its okay to roll them a couple of times like I’ve done with mine (um… I mean “his”). The sweater is another seasonal essential. I was hesitant to break out a printed sweater after December 25th, but then I remembered the one golden rule of fashion: There are no rules. I’d say you can get away with wearing certain monotone printed knits in January. For instance, the greys, blacks and whites in this sweater keep it more of a ‘winter vibes ski bunny’ look as opposed to the colourful prints typically associated with more traditional seasonal sweaters. And as I mentioned earlier, if its not too cold outside, I usually opt for a nice heel because heels in my opinion just make everything look better haha. Of course, a black ankle boot would work just as well though if you have to trudge through slush and snowy sidewalks. :(
If you’re going out tomorrow night, please remember not to drive if you’re planning on drinking. Take an Uber instead and if you’ve never tried it, I recommend you install the app on your phone and give it a try, they’re a fun and very convenient way to get around town. Here’s hoping for an amazing 2016 and thank you to everyone who has followed my blog this year. I appreciate the feedback on here and on the ‘Gram and I promise to always try my best to respond to all your comments and questions.
