Cozy Knits + Wednesday Style Connection

Over-sized knit sweaters are officially my favorite thing this season. I think I wore this outfit like 3 times last week because I was so in love with it. I got this sweater at H&M during their amazing Buy 1 Get 1 Free sale a few weeks ago and it's definitely my go-to item this year. These printed leggings are such a fun addition to this outfit I love layering long socks & boots! It's frigid here so you'll be seeing me in these comfy pieces lots this winter!

Day & Night Looks: Nordic Sweater

I fell in love with this Nordic sweater when it went viral a few months ago on Pinterest. The best part: It was only $22.00 at OASAP.com! I had never purchased from this site but let me tell you, I wasn’t disappointed. They offer free shipping and all of their clothing is reasonably priced. This sweater was a little bit longer than I had hoped for when I first received it but I’ve come to love that about it. It’s long enough to pair with leggings and it still keeps my bum warm when it gets freaking cold outside! During winter all I want to wear is sweaters. One thing I struggle with is how to make oversized sweaters look “appropriate” for dinner parties and going out so I don’t look like a completely hobo! It’s got to be a perfect combo of grunge and glam. See my Day & Night looks below, which one do you like best?


For a DAY look, I wore the Nordic sweater with leggings, brown combat boots and a messenger bag. I recreated this outfit from Pinterest and I must say, I’m pretty proud of myself.



For a NIGHT look, I paired the sweater with ankle booties, an infinity scarf, red pea coat and some layered rings/jewelry. I love the multiple colors in this outfit and the neutralizing scarf, clutch & booties tie it all together.

My Inner Katniss

Not much can go wrong when you’re wearing neutrals and a fitted military jacket.  These lace-up boots make me feel a bit like Katniss Everdeen which I’m definitely not complaining about.  I’m beyond excited for the Hunger Games Catching Fire movie that comes out today...just saying! I've loved Jennifer Lawrence, on and off the big screen, for a REALLY long time. I love how personable she is and her brutal honesty with reporters! I also have grown to love her strict stance on body image and encouraging women to find beauty within themselves, not base it soley on their weight or physical features. Check out these articles, here, here, and here to read some of my favorite thoughts & quotes from Jennifer! I truly admire her sense of self and she is a great role model in proving to women everywhere that being truly happy and successful comes from being yourself, no matter the situation you are put in. Side note- I seriously wish I could pull off short hair as good as she does, she seriously is gorgeous no matter what. I think most girls would agree they've got a girl crush on her too. See my Pinterest board of my favorite looks of JLaw here. Anyway I'm waiting until my sister comes home from college this next weekend to see the movie so I've got to endure the anticipation a few more days! The book is amazing so I’m excited to see how it is portrayed on film.

These lovely photos were taken by my very talented friend, Christine Olsen who is the photography at Christine Barlow Photography. She takes amazing photos and she does everything from weddings, engagements, to family pictures, and whatever else you want captured!
