How to style a sweater and skirt in the winter
Lately, I can't get enough of a dramatic sleeve. Statement sleeves have been SO major the past season and I, for one, am totally on board. Gimme all the sweaters, tops, and dresses with a ruffle or bell sleeve. I MEAN... you know that I'm a sucker for a ruffle just IN GENERAL. Ruffles are all the yes to me.
So when I spotted this blush sweater, it clearly had to be mine. (Available in 4 other colors, btw.) Seriously considering wearing all blush, all the time. I just love the color and I especially love pairing it with leopard. When I got this sweater, I had a VISION of the outfit I wanted to make it into. (Does that only happen to me?? LOL!) I knew I wanted a jean skirt, my leopard Clare V. clutch and these amazing Chanel slingback dupes that are only $33.90. If you've been drooling over the classic Chanel slingbacks but don't want to drop the $$ for them... they are a PERFECT affordable alternative and I can't recommend them enough! They're very comfortable. I am kind of loving this move towards a more comfortable shoe, aren't you?? I can actually WALK PLACES IN MY SHOES it is a miracle. I checked and it seems sizes are limited, but they are constantly restocking them, so I will keep you posted on when they restock. (Stay tuned to Instagram!)
But back to the skirt. I literally had this outfit in my mind for, like, 3 weeks while I tried to track down the perfect skirt. Ummm jean skirts are sort of tough to find by the way. Like, a good one I mean.This jean skirt was on sale and I had sort of been eyeing it, so decided that for $31, I had to take the plunge. I like that it has a higher waist and I feel SUPER skinny in it. As always, don't forget to size up in Topshop. (I am wearing an 8, but don't tell anyone.) I can already tell it's going to be on major repeat. It's just such a good skirt! I'm into a skirt all the sudden. Bring back the jean skirt, I say.
