I can not believe it's December. The Holidays are in full swing and my time has been spent looking for presents, and getting ready for all of the Holiday parties. For me when temps start to drop, I go to my tried and true all black ensembles. Black is my comfort blanket. Throw on a black sweater and pants and some booties and I am out the door. This Holiday, I'm making an effort to wear more color and I'm starting with a twist on one my favorite jeans: the boyfriend.
I love the way boyfriend jeans fit on me. They are the perfect amount of slouch without looking sloppy. These paint splattered versions from Melissa McCarthy are fun and amazingly comfortable. I have been eyeing these for a while, and when the site was having a 40% off sale, I went for it and bought them. If you have not tried her jeans before I suggest them. I wear a size 16, and they hug where they need to and I have yet to deal with them stretching out.
I wanted to keep the color going so I went with one of my favorite sweaters from the Gap. The Crazy Stripe sweater has been a favorite of mines since I was in high school and over the past couple of years they have brought them back in different variations. I have had this button neck one for a couple of years, but there is a new variation available with more of a metallic look which is super cute. Chunky knits and jeans are the perfect weekend look. It can be dressed down with sneakers to run errands or with booties to meet with the gals for brunch.
With all my pops of colors, I went with some neutrals to tie in the rest of my look. This quilted coat from Melissa McCarthy has been a go to over the past couple of months for me. Oversized coats have been all over the runways for Fall, and this one has the right amount of volume without swallowing you whole. I wear a 20 in coats, and with this coat the 1X was perfect. I have room to layer underneath, and its quite warm. I finished off my look with my booties from Lane Bryant. I love the bow detailing and the wide width which makes them very comfortable. Well I am off to finish up my shopping. Enjoy lovers!!!
