A Winter's Day

This sweater would be a good illustration of why I don't really wear oversized pieces often...things that are loose or baggy on an average-height person border on ridiculous when you're 5'1". The proportions of this sweater are quite difficult for me to work with. Still, it's cozy to wear around the house or out on a winter's day down by the water. I was quite pleased to discover how icy the shore had gotten; beach foam transformed into sheets of ice and icicles dripping from the rocks. It hasn't looked this seasonally appropriate in ages.

I'm (almost) 5'2" and I love big chunky over-sized sweaters. I think this is a lovely solution to make them more flattering. You look adorable.

Oh my gosh! I love that sweater. Sweaters are my weakness at the moment. I think it looks beautiful on you and, as always, I am jealous of your gorgeous hair. I hope you have a happy Monday Rebecca! :)

Best wishes! Xx

I love the colours in this outfit. And while the sweater is a tad big, it looks so cute and cozy, I might need one of those for myself.
Also loving the mittens, so cute!

I actually love the oversized sweater on you! The color is perfect and it looks so cozy for a winter outfit. Plus, the sweater has enough interest with the fun detail to keep it from looking anything but chic!

I think you did a great job with styling that sweater -- the blazer gives it some structure so it doesn't look too oversized. Of course, that sweater looks so cozy and chic -- I loved how you styled for the sad clone outfit, too!

Love how the oversized sweater looks on you! Being very big sized, I find it hard to find oversized clothes and sometimes have to look at men's wear. So I envy you, guess grass is always greener on the other side. :)
