Styling an Oversized Sweater



Hello All!  

Spring is just around the corner! Now is the time to start transitioning your outfits from those winter months while still staying nice & cozy until those flowers are in full bloom.

A couple of tips: If you are wearing something larger on top try streamlining the bottom half of your outfit. This oversized sweater by Free People is super on trend & the cowl neck is so comfortable! I’m obsessed with tops & sweaters that have a high-low hem. I think it really flatters the figure. Soft boyfriend jeans that are a bit more fitted are the perfect pairing. Casual & Cool.

I’m also really into metallic accents right now & incorporate them into a lot of my outfits. I focused on rose gold/gold for this look because of the pink in the sweater. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that you can’t mix metals because it looks amazing!!!!! Try a bold lip & throw on some chunky heels to elongate your legs. I love these soft pink velvet ones by Steve Madden because the thicker heel makes it more daytime appropriate but the gold adds a bit of glam.


My Outfit:

Free People ‘Arctic Blast’ Sweater (sold out currently but you can request a restock/special order through Revolve clothing here.) I’ve linked similar cowl neck sweaters here & here.

SP Black ‘Decon’ Distroyed Boyfriend Jeans (currently sold out) but I love this pair, as well as these & these. I also love this plus size option here.

Quay ‘Cherry Bomb’ Sunglasses in Rose Gold.

Sam Edelman ‘Camilla’ Leather Convertible Crossbody Bag (old.) Similar bags here, here, here & here.

Steve Madden ‘Carrson’ Strappy Sandal in Pink Velvet.

My hat is by the brand BP. at Nordstrom (old.) I found this amazing hat & this one. 

To add a little something extra, I pinned my favorite Mr. Kate brooch to my hat. You should try it! Shop the Mr. Kate jewelry line here. Her site is fantastic & she is doing a 30% off sale right now!

Baublebar ‘Corona’ Ring (on sale!)  ShopBop has a similar (18k gold) & beautiful (meaning I want it,) dome ring here. 

I’m wearing NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade ‘Amsterdam’ on my lips.


I hope everyone had an amazing Valentine’s Day with loved ones. The hubs scattered presents (that I had shown on my Valentine’s Gift Guide post) with cute little cards all over the house! I was so surprised!!! Later, we went to dinner in Newport Beach & then walked around the marina a bit. It was a great day!
