Beat the Chill in Oversized Sweater + Distressed Denim




Oh em efing G, it's been cold! I live under my covers literally and when I need to go out, my oversized sweaters are what I reach for. They are as effortless as they are cozy and get the job of keeping me warm done without leaving me looking frumpy. And if truth be told, no one can resist the comfort and the appeal of oversized knits. It’s safe to say I am currently obsessed with them. Beanies too!

Paired with distressed denim, this is a match made in Winter heaven. Wear your knits over a slip dress or even a body con dress and thigh high boots for that model off duty look. I finished this look with a pair of open toe boots that I love am in love with. I kid you not, this pair is my uniform both to work and play cos it's extra comfy so you’ll be seeing it a lot. 
Just a heads up.

A little girl at work today stated that she should be called smartie pants dress because she had on a dress and not pants. The term 'hearty laugh' was redefined.
The joys of teaching!

Hard to believe that January has come and gone. Never to come again, at least this year. If I weren’t a teacher and and didn't have to go over the calendar daily as a part of my daily schedule, I'd probably not be able to keep up with how fast time is zipping by. Saying happy new year is no longer appropriate. The year ain’t that new anymore. Happy year perhaps? Happy rest of the year? Or just ‘Happy' with a wave of the hand? Don’t ask me, I don’t know. Let me know when you figure it out. For now, I’ll just stick with 
'Happy Weekend' everyone!

  2. love the combo of those distressed jeans and oversized sweater...and how cute are those matching gloves! you look utterly gorgeous. The open toe boots are a nice touch. Perfect hairdo and make up as well.

    I totally agree with you about knits...nobody can resist an appeal of a nice knitted item be it a sweater or a dress or whatever...Knits keep us warm in the winter and we love them for it. You can't beat feeling cozy!

    The time is flying like crazy...isn't it? I can't believe that February is already here. When you think of it, the spring is almost here... It is so exciting. However, for the moment I'm enjoying the winter:)

  35. It's been crazy cold on my side too and worse, it's been snowing non stop since Friday so we're literally buried in snow. :-( Oversized sweater has been my outfit too, it's the best way to stay warm and cosy with style.

  52. Idu, I love that little girls idea of her thinking she should be called smartie dress... lol ... too cute xox

    You make oversized sweaters look incredible girl... I like the color, it looks really great on you. I wish I could just wear a sweater to keep warm here but sadly I would freeze without the whole 9 yards... luckily I don't have to go out in it often ♡

    Happy week and happy upcoming week♡♡♡

  53. Dear Idu, for me it is absolutely the same! I love wearing sweaters when it is cold and would be happy to own such a beautiful sweater like you combined with your super cool look. Yes, time is flying ... for me it is the same in this context, too!
