Chunky Knits and Leggings
This outfit is how I get away with wearing leggings to work! (Seriously!)
It's so cozy! Especially for colder winter days when you want to wear a skirt or dress but tights just aren't going to cut it--reach for leggings and this sweater dress instead! I particularly like these leggings because they're super black! And they're stretchy, but the fabric is also fairly thick at the same time so you feel like you're wearing more than just thin tights and it makes it even better as something that is appropriate for the office.
The sweater dress is also so warm and comfy. It's from Gap but sadly, it was on major sale and now they have very limited sizes. I linked to some similar options below if they don't have your size!
When I wear this dress to work, I pair it with my favorite pointy toe black suede heels from Nine West (which you can find here) but if you were to wear this outfit for a dressier occasion, a pretty patent leather heel does the trick! My favorite patent shoes right now are the pair of Loubs below... which were a Christmas present from Matt. Bless him. If you can't find it in your budget to splurge on a pair of heels right now though, don't worry, I gotchu! I linked to some similar pairs below that are just as beautiful, but easier on the wallet.
I hope everyone is having a good week. I've had a "meh" week because Matt went back to Rio and now I'm alone (sad face). But it's okay because I plan on using our time apart productively. I am going to focus on getting back in shape, writing for this blog, cooking, investing (P.S. I just opened an account with Vanguard which was recommended to me by both my father and my boyfriend separately. Will let you know how it goes!) and just hanging out with friends that I haven't seen since I've been in Rio and traveling!
Whew, this year is off to a whirlwind start. But when is life ever not a whirlwind? Never.
I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week! <3
