CROPPED FLEECE: THE PERFECT BALANCE

Details: Funnel Vision Nude Cropped Sweatshirt c/o Tobi, here|   UNIQLO drape pants, similar here | Jessica Simpson two-tone pumps, similar here |

Feeling comfortable during the holidays is key. I mean, you’re overeating, there’s a lot of sitting, talking and traveling. Staying cozy and comfortable is almost necessary. While I love unearthing my “sexy” side, I feel more myself in cozy blanket-like knits and my favorite UNIQLO jogger pants. Now, to balance cute and comfortable, I found this perfect fleece cropped sweater and it even has bell sleeves. I’m super short and sometimes my chunky sweaters look a bit too long and chunky and a lot less cute. Not to mention, this nude mauve color is soft enough for my fair winter complexion (bonus points for not looking like a zombie!). The fleece material makes it ultra cozy, making it an absolute must-have for family gatherings filled with food. If it were up to me completely, I would wear my backless loafers (which is absolutely acceptable), but to add some sass, I went with a neutral pump. It definitely brings the outfit to the next level, but I’m still packing my flats in my purse.

While I’m in search of a balance between comfort and cute, I know I’ll hit some pitfalls but I will try my hardest stay balanced and stylish this season. What are your favorite holiday looks that you just can’t wait to wear?!

P.S. It’s on sale right now (50% OFF)

FROM BELL BOTTOMS TO BELL SLEEVES

DSC_0622editedDSC_0556editedDSC_0546editedDSC_0605editedDSC_0584editedDetails: Multi-color bell sleeve dress (old), similar here |

I don’t know why but I’ve been on quite the 70’s style era kick lately. Last week I was all about my bell bottoms and this week I’m flaunting a bell sleeved dress. The white and pink crochet reminds me of blankets my grandmother used to have and while that may sound outdated or evoke scents of moth balls I really like to associate my clothing with fond memories and/or family members, it makes them feel more meaningful. I can’t say I will be able to wear this dress anytime soon considering the frigid temps (I DEFINITELY spoke too soon), but this is definitely a winner for spring because it transitions easily with its long sleeves and light colors. I stupidly left most of my chunky knits back in Jersey so I’ll be repeat offending the ones I have (eye roll),  but I can’t wait to be donning dresses every other day–come on warm weather! Until then, I’ll be bundled in the knits I have and blazers… SOS.
