Happy hump day everyone! I can't believe that it's Wednesday already. This week has just flown by, but I'm glad because I'm one day closer to the weekend and the New Year :) Who has plans for this weekend already? I do!! This year instead of going to someone's house or to some big event, me and my sweetie are staying home and relaxing in front of the TV. Unfortunately I have to work New Year's Day so for New Year's Eve I just want to relax and enjoy time with my sweetie. If, like me, you also plan to spend the day relaxing then I have the perfect sweater for you. Not only is it super comfy but it's also really cute and will be perfect for lounging around the house or doing a little shopping. So, what is this sweater and where can you snag one for yourself?
I found this sweater while out black Friday shopping at JCPenney and I thought it was super cute and I knew I had the perfect boots to go with it. I LOVE wearing sweaters during the winter and I can get a little crazy buying them, but in my personal opinion you can never have too many sweaters...kinda like shoes ;) This particular sweater caught my attention because of the slight sporty look. I love the little stripes on the arms and the number on the chest give this sweater just enough of the sporty look to be cute, but not over the top (FYI I'm not a huge sports fan) The fact that this sweater is also a tunic is a huge plus because I'll also be able to wear this cutie with some adorable leggings in the future. I also love the slits on the sides. I'm a bit hippy so these slits help to keep the sweater from hugging my hips too tightly and of course give this sweater just one more notch on the cuteness factor :) Combine all this together with the fact I got this sweater on sale for less than $10 and it's a huge score for this fashionista!! This sweater is no longer available online so I linked a similar one below. I'm sure they may still have a few on the clearance rack of your local store ;) So, how did I end up styling this cutie and how can you change it up to match your style?
I knew the moment I bought this sweater that I wanted the style to be comfy and casual. I've had an awesome pair of Union Jack Dr. Martens that I got from Journeys for a couple of years now that I hardly ever wear because I can never find anything to match them without wearing just a plain solid top. I was excited that this sweater went great with them so I decided to make this look sporty meets grunge :) Throw on a pair of skinny jeans from Abercrombie and Fitch and I had a super adorable and comfy outfit that I loved wearing. If Dr. Martens aren't your thing you can always wear a cute pair of Converse sneakers instead. In fact this sweater would go great with my white Converse and I may just wear them next time with those leggings I was talking about ;) You can also wear a cute pair of flats or even some fur boots like UGGs.
Are you a fan of Dr. Martens? If not, how would you style this sweater differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love by sharing this post with all your friends who would love this sweater as much as I do. I hope you have an amazing week and happy shopping :)
Goodbye for now...Fashionable Tigress
