Hiya mamas and thanks for checking back in for another Wednesday fashion post. Being a former college student of the 90’s, I’ve always harbored a passion for oversized sweaters. I lived in them during college and even knitted one of my own once during winter break. I love the warmth, comfort and ease of an oversize sweater. When this look boomeranged back into style a year or two back, I was thrilled.
To me there is one rule when it comes to oversized sweater outfits: your bottom has to be tight fitting. So for my lavender big sweater, I opted for some navy leather jeggings. I hesitated over these Zara leggings several years ago because they were not cheap, but I am SO happy I took the plunge because they have since become a wardrobe staple.
Here I am before Marielle’s “birthday share” in her classroom last week.To be honest, the classroom was so hot that I got a bit warm in my thick sweater, but that’s ok.When it comes to what shoes to wear with tight leggings or leggings, you’ve got a choice. I say either do high suede boots that go up over the knee or opt for booties, like this pair of Stewart Weitzman grey suede booties I’ve had now for almost five years!
Marielle was thrilled with her pink and purple cupcakes decorated with a big M. Mama was feeling good in her comfy outfit that matched the cupcakes. After a serious sugar overload, we headed home on the cross-town bus.Thanks so much for reading and check back in next week for another fashion post.
