My Favorite Sweater

Sometimes, a girl comes across a piece of clothing that they know they simply cannot live without. For me this season, it was this sweater. I had been on the hunt for a chunky, cable-knit sweater, and when I came across this one with it’s cowl-neck and high/low hem making it long enough to pair with leggings, I knew it had to be mine.

This sweater has been worn more times than I care to admit since I’ve purchased it, and it is quite simply the coziest sweater that I currently own. I’ve worn it with both denim and black leggings, but I’ve found that a pair of white skinnies really makes the variations of gray in the sweater stand out for a true winter feel. And, with the upcoming holiday, it’s only natural that I would pop on a daytime-appropriate red lip.

I’m linking up with the ladies behind the Creative Closet today, so be sure to head over to their blogs to check out their favorite sweaters, too!

  5. That is probably my favorite red lipstick for this time of year – it's so moisturizing and doesn't dry my lips out!

  7. Girl, you need to start shopping there! I think Kohl's has really upped their game, and you can find some really fashionable pieces for not a lot of money. It's my favorite place to shop.

  9. I think I remember the one that you're talking about because I have a similar one from there that I also love. Cowl neck sweaters seem to have been everywhere this season!

  13. I couldn't agree with you more! I always gravitate toward simple pieces, so I'm glad I can glam it up a bit. 🙂

  26. This sweater looks so cozy! I love it when they are long enough to pair with tights too. It's so simply and comfy, but somehow always comes across put together. Magic! XO -Alexandra

@Disneyland is full of hidden scenes and little details. This area in particular, right around the corner from Fantasyland, was my favorite of them all! Maybe because we were there early before the crowds came pouring in, or maybe I was taking a moment to be nostalgic ... either way this was the first time in a few months that I felt happy and 100% myself. Perhaps that’s the magic of Disney that Walt always talked about.  #adultsatdisney #disneyland
