Oversized Sweater Three Ways




As I discussed in my 2019 Style post I really want to challenge myself this year and wear things a little differently and mix up my style. It’s so easy to have a favorite outfit and wear it on repeat but part of the fun of fashion in my opinion is personal style – and part of that is taking one item and styling it multiple ways.
One of my favorite items currently being that it’s winter is an oversized sweater- in fact I love this style so much I have two very similar sweaters. It’s warm, cozy and super easy to throw on so what’s not to love? My default way of styling is just that –super casual thrown over a pair of skinny jeans or pants with ballet flats and a fun necklace.




 




To dress up this casual look I swapped the jeans for black skinny pants (ok, actually when I took the photos I couldn't find my jeans that day but pretend I was wearing them, haha!), the flats for heels and the necklace for a long scarf and added some sparkly earrings and a clutch. With a regular purse I could wear this to the office but I think this makes for a really nice (and comfortable) night out outfit.



On the other end of the spectrum I also wear my sweater even more casual and use it as an outer layer when coming and going to the gym. I fully admit that my biggest struggle with the gym is getting there and I’m not one to run errands in my gym outfit but throwing on my sweater (which clearly I wouldn’t work out in, lol) gives the look enough style where I’m not embarrassed to run into Target. I might have even worn my black workout leggings with boots to the office and just changed shoes at the gym, shhh!



 


 I hope this post has inspired you to mix up something in your own closet. I plan on sharing more of these posts so if there's something you'd like to see styled three ways I'd love to hear it!

  1. I'd love to see a striped tee styled different ways, dressier and casual - I'm the same and default to wearing jeans and flats!

Sensible Portions

I'm Sometimes you have to recognize your strengths and when it's time to outsource . For me a healthy lifestyle is not a strength. I love the idea of eating small healthy meals and working out everyday but then I get hangry and eat anything in sight. Or I have a busy weekend and don't have time to meal prep, and then I'm screwed for the week and one bad week turns into a bad month, and a bad year and a decade of gaining weight. So, when a sorority sister posted a meal plan she had found success with I was very interested. Shaun and I tried a similar program last year but it was very expensive ($170 for one person for 5 days) That's a great investment if you need to lose 10 or 20 lbs but when you have a lot to lose you need a long term plan that is viable from a time, nutrition and financial aspect. 
Long term it's still pricey but I was very impressed with the value and results of sensible portions and decided to give it a try. Like most meal plans the plan is …

20 Rules for Modern Feminine Style

One of the things I love about the digital age is the ability to connect with others! I recently got a great idea from a youtuber I follow to make a list of 20 "rules" that define my lifestyle and I really loved this idea and thought not only would this be a good exercise for myself but a good topic to share with y'all. So, obviously you do you and wear whatever you want but these are my guidelines for my modern feminine without breaking the bank aesthetic.
1. Focus on pieces with wear ability beyond one season, don't get sucked into too many trends. For example, gingham will always be wearable for summer, plaid for fall, sweaters for winter and floral for spring - but get pieces with classic cuts so you can wear them year after year. For example, a gingham shirt dress is classic, a gingham top with bell sleeves will look dated the second that shape is out. 2. Don't be afraid to spend a little more for quality timeless pieces - a cashmere sweater, a great blac…

Lauren James Warehouse Sale Haul

Hello Friends! I know many of y'all kept up with my Lauren James warehouse sale journey over the weekend and if you're anything like me you like following along even if you couldn't make it yourself. When Lauren James announced the warehouse sale I was super excited but not sure I could make it work - it was short notice, a five hour drive and I'd already spent my June spending money. Luckily I have a good hubby who recognizes that sometimes you just need something fun in your life and was ok not only making the trip but with me borrowing from ourselves against my July spending money. Since this is the last warehouse sale Lauren James plans on holding I really didn't want the opportunity to slip by.
Warehouse sales can serve many purposes for a business - as a way to move excess inventory, create buzz and excitement for the brand, reward the most loyal brand fans by giving them access to great deal (which also puts more product into the hands of those most excite…

Wedding Guest PSA

Over the weekend my husband and I packed up all of the wedding gifts we received and moved them into storage in preparation of our anticipated move later this year and it was a wonderful reminder of all the love and support we received during our wedding. Because I personally enjoyed hearing from recent brides in wedding chats prior to our wedding I am still in a wedding chat and from time to time will comment when something similar to something we experienced pops up in my newsfeed. One thing that I see a common frustration with is guest lists and as a recent bride I  have a few thoughts on this. Since it's almost time for the 2017 wedding season to begin which means invites for spring weddings have already gone out I figure now is a good time for a little PSA when it comes to wedding invites. Our wedding invite Not only from my own wedding but from my numerous conversations with fellow brides I can say with certainty that the guest list is one of the biggest considerations a c…

Lane Bryant Best Fitting Denim

Ask 100 women what is the most versatile items in their closet and I bet 98% will say a pair of jeans. As I mentioned in my 2019 wardrobe goals getting another pair of jeans is on my closet to do this year since right now I only have one pair. And wouldn't you know it but the folks at Lane Bryant must have read my mind since they're offering the Best Fitting Denim event this upcoming weekend and they have asked me to be their special guest so not only I could find my own perfect fitting jeans but help y'all do the same. Lane Bryant offers a good variety of jeans not only in shape but in color, wash and fun details. Before showing the perfect pair for me here's a look at just a few of the options. It was really nice to be able to play around with the wash, length and fit so see what I liked about each.


Although I LOVE the fun ruffle and ribbon embellishments I felt like a traditional pair of jeans matches my lifestyle. I tried on the straight leg and boot cut three ti…
