I got this yellow turtleneck for only $5 at Forever 21. Originally, it was $17.99, but I snagged this sweater for way cheaper because it was during their big sale after New Year’s Eve. I love wearing sweaters during the winter time, but the cropped ones definitely flatter my shape more and look great with high waisted jeans.
This was my Christmas outfit. I got this H&M dress on black Friday, and it came in this blood orange color and a floral print. Even though it was a spring dress, I paired it with a cozy knitted cardigan and a simple diamond pendant necklace.
I have not blogged in ages because I’ve been busy with school, but I decided to end the year with a handful of posts. I wanted to share a Christmas Wishlist with some of my favorite Pinterest finds. Here are some of my clothing and accessory finds that I’ll be looking for this season.
Chunky Sweater – I have so many chunky knits, but I especially love the long baggy sweaters. They’re comfortable to wear with just leggings and converse, but they also work for dressier occasions with skirts or statement necklaces.
Long Cardigan– When I first started seeing these long cardigans, I didn’t initially like them, but after seeing how people wear them, I want one. They’re great to wear over any outfit. I’ve also seen people wear them with skirts and dresses too.
Leather Leggings– This is a trend I’ve wanted for a while. I didn’t really like leather until my mom bought me a burgundy pair of leggings with leather panels on the sides. For the wintertime, these leggings would be great for playing around with textures.
Crop Top– I love crop tops. The fit is great on my shape. However, for the winter, they’re not functional. These cropped ribbed sweaters are perfect because they’re warm, but still have a crop top fit.
Watch– I’ve really wanted a nice watch for a while. I just haven’t found the right one. I love the over sized ones and think they look great with dainty layered bracelets.
Phone Case– I need a new phone case. So far, I’ve gone through a couple cases, and they haven’t been anything special. On Amazon, they have so many designs and patterns to choose from.
Wallet– When I run errands, I like to carry a smaller bag, and it’s hard to find a wallet that’s small and still has the necessary compartments.
Hope you liked the list! If you liked any of the items from above, I left the link to each of the pins.
If the weather has been too chilly to be wearing tank tops and shorts every day, here are some ways to incorporate your winter clothes into the spring weather.
1) Wear Cardigans with Dresses– This a nice cover up for an event or a night out. These sweaters are warm enough to wear outside and pair well with summery and spring dresses.
2) Wear chunky/cropped sweaters with cutoff shorts- This is a cute fun look if you’re just going to run errands. You can finish the look with a pair of sandals or flats, and add a long chain. I think it is casual, but still girly. If the weather is too chilly for either shoe, opt for a short boot like the photo below.
3) Wear a scarf with a tank top- I’ve seen a lot of people do this look as a sporty “on the go” outfit. It is easy to pair a loose printed scarf with a basic tank top. I think a messy bun and sunglasses would be great finishes too.
4) Wear a turtleneck with a midi skirt- These skirts are super cute and flirty. This is a super cute day look to wear. That being said, don’t wear a chunky turtleneck. Stick to the fitted ones to pair with a nice billowy skirt.
Hope you liked this post! Have a happy Sunday! 🙂
I got this lovely hat and knitted scarf from H&M for ten dollars from my sister! They come as a set and I love both pieces a lot! Both are super cozy and the red color makes for standout accessories. For both pieces, ten dollars isn’t half bad! You should definitely check out their scarves and hats because they’re perfect for the insanely cold weather!

Forever 21 has always been one of my favorite stores to check out, but you can also shop at home! Online, the deals are still great and you can get them in your pajamas! Since it’s sweater weather, I’d figured I would give some fashion steals from the website! I found all of these under the sale category!
$39.99- This coat is perfect for any formal event, but you can also wear it with jeans and a scarf! Very versatile for the cold weather.
$16.99- This baggy turtleneck is great for curling up and watching Netflix. Wear the sweater with leggings and boots for going out.
$11.99- This mustard cropped sweater is chic on its own, but you can also wear it with a button down underneath for a preppy look.
$24.99- For a more formal event, you can still dress warm with this cream colored blazer. I love the shape and it can be paired with a nice blouse and dress pants, or a skirt. It can also be thrown over any dress.
$16.99- The sleeves definitely elevate the sweater into a more interesting piece. Still, it’s super cozy!
