Did you get buried by snow this weekend? Here in the Cities, we got covered in a foot of snow (AKA a few inches). In this type of weather, I’m all about layering. You know the drill, you’re freezing outside but as soon as you step inside it feels like a furnace so you have to start shedding layers. And, we all have that friend whose house is always cold, so you wear all the layers, all the time 😉
This gray marled sweater from Express is the perfect layering sweater and has been on repeat for a few months. It’s not too thick so is easy to layer under a cardigan or lighter jacket like I did in the first photo. I’ve also worn it on its own with a scarf for added warmth. Because it is a lighter material, this sweater will easily transition to springtime. And, what’s especially great about a piece like this is that it’s a classic style. It’s sure to be a closet staple year over year. You can easily update it for a new year with different accessories or cardigans.
This particular sweater comes in 4 other colors and definitely runs small. I’d order up a size or two, especially if you’re looking for a looser fit. This sweater has gone in and out of stock throughout the winter, so if it’s not in stock in your size now be sure to check back throughout the week! It’s currently under $60. Because some sizes are out of stock, this sweater and this one are both very similar styles and are in the same price range!
For this outfit, I paired this sweater with a chunky, trendy necklace from Sugarfix by Baublebar. A necklace like this one can be hard to style given it’s such a statement piece. But, wearing it with a plain colored sweater and minimal other accessories is the perfect balance. Pro-tip – a statement necklace like this one is an easy way to update existing tops you already own. You can simply add it to your current wardrobe to elevate pieces you’ve had for years! Sugarfix by Baublebar is a great place to look for on-trend, on-budget jewelry as all of their pieces are under $30!
As promised in my last post, the shop tab as well as the “Currently Obsessed” section on my sidebar have been updated for the coming week! You may see some warm-weather styles appearing in these sections. I’M SORRY!! I know, especially if you live in the North, warm weather seems like years away (Kevin won’t even let me talk about it LOL). But, Kev & I booked our tickets to Sanibel Island for our trip with my family in March, and ALL I can think about is how warm it’ll be. So, of course, I’ve already started putting items on my wish list 😇. I figure we call could use a little Spring cheer to get us through the next few dreary months. And, some of you may also be taking trips coming up and may need some warm-weather gear for your travels!
After a very relaxing weekend, I’m ready to get to work this week and pound out some stuff on my to-do list. I hope you all have a productive start to your week! Be sure to check back Wednesday for a brand new post. 😘
