I’m all about the oversized sweaters and over the knee boots for winter. I just got a small sweater haul in the mail that I wanted to share. Amazon of course comes through with the great prices (everything is under $30!) and free 2 day shipping.
OVERSIZED SWEATERS AND OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
It’s a bit dark in the photo so hard to see but there is a ruffle detailing at the sleeve which makes this otherwise basic sweater so fun! It’s a bit baggier than I usually like but it’s a one size fits all sweater so if you are taller than me, it might fit better. However, in the winter, I’m all about the oversized baggy fit so I’m keeping this one as I think it looks really cute with skinny jeans and boots!
Just to note, I’m wearing my favorite high waisted skinnies that I featured in my post where I shared my secrets to finding the perfect jeans for ladies with short legs. I’ve been wearing them SO much and I love that they fit perfectly to your legs so that you can wear over the knee boots with it!
The sweater itself is a very nice thick knit. It’s a bit heavy and so will be difficult to wear a winter coat over it without looking like or feeling like the marshmallow man. It’s great for a trip to the mall where you know you’ll be indoors with the heat and not have to bring a coat with you.
I don’t think I’ll ever be over cutesy details like this but I adore the heart elbow patches! Just too cute. It comes in 5 colors and I’m wearing the size small which fits true to size.
This is a lightweight knit so if you think you might be cold (I am always cold!) I’d recommend wearing a thin long sleeve tee underneath to add enough warmth.
You may have already spotted it in my instagram post too!
Over the knee boots: High end or Affordable?
I like the chunky heel as it makes it a lot more comfortable to wear all day long and these are a little bit more forgiving in the calf area whereas some boots are super slim and so if you are wearing jeans it kind of bunches up and can be a bit awkward looking unless you are wearing leggings or perfectly fit skinny jeans. I highly recommend these over the knee boots if you are looking for a great quality and under $100.
With that said, the Stuart Weitzman boots look great on because they are slim fitting. They don’t slide down and and they are extremely comfortable. (Check my latest instagram post here to see them on me).
This one is a little bit more fun with the pearl details and the peplum. I think it’s a little short on me so I’m thinking about exchanging for a size up (I’m wearing the size small here) as I don’t really love the cropped look. I already have a short waist and where the peplum is hitting on my waist, make it look even shorter. But I think in a size up it might work as it really is a cute top and I love the details.
This is the same sweater as the black one above. I couldn’t decide which color so I ordered both! Thank goodness for Amazon prime with their free shipping and returns right? (Get 30 day free trial for Amazon Prime with my link!) You can see the ruffles a lot better here, aren’t they so cute?
The sleeves are so long which is always a problem of mine. Short arm problems, right? But like I said previously I do love the oversized look so I think I can make it work!
I’m also loving my new full length mirror that I just got! This is in my home office where I’m always trying on samples for my clothing line or trying on stuff that I get in the mail. I’m always needing a mirror so I figured it was about time that I get one.
I looked at a bunch of stores and was so happy to have found this full length mirror on Amazon of course! It’s under $100 and the perfect size and I love the modern design. It was not only the design I was looking for but it was also the most inexpensive one and free shipping! And I wonder why I always just buy everything on Amazon these days. Anyway, I love that it’s a stand alone mirror so I can move it around easily when I need to.
WINTER OUTFIT IDEAS: SWEATER, LEGGINGS & OVER THE KNEE BOOTS
This is such an easy outfit to put together so I’ve been wearing a variation at least twice a week. Here’s a recent look from my instagram. Did you know you can easily shop my instagram on my blog? All details are always linked on this page.
SWEATER: Full disclosure that the photo on the website looks nothing like that in real life. I still kept it but was a bit disappointed how far off from the photo it was!
LEGGINGS: On sale! Very thick and appropriate to wear to work leggings. Just make sure your top covers your butt! 🙂
OVER THE KNEE BOOTS: Yup, these are the same one as above!
BAG: I got this Saint Laurent years ago (when they still went by YSL!) and it’s still a favorite bag as it’s the perfect size.
BAG STRAP: Another awesome Amazon buy that I literally use all the time. I put these bag straps on every bag that I can as it’s made all my bags sturdier and easier to carry.
