#OOTD – Baby it’s cold outside

Cold lips, pale face, breathing in snowflakes…winter has officially arrived in Pittsburgh!  As much as I dread getting my toddler bundled up to leave the house, I love winter fashion.  Cozy knits,  draped cardigans, boots & scarves, all of it!  Though it would be easier to just throw on leggings & an oversized sweater I’ve been trying to maintain my sanity through chic ensembles that make me look & feel great!  Plus, I grabbed all of these styles at great prices, which makes my hubby happy too 🙂

#OOTD – Cozy Sweater

The first snowfall has officially hit the ground in Pittsburgh & I’m loving it!  It’s that perfect snow that gently blankets the grass & trees but melts as soon as it hits the pavement.

I am always challenged with what to wear while running errands this time of year.  Wearing a bulky jacket does not make carrying my son & “diaper bag” easy.  I say diaper bag lightly because he’s almost fully potty trained, but I carry his snacks & an extra pair of pants just in case.  Though the air is crisp & cool, it’s not exactly freezing yet so I’m able to wear a comfy sweater & leggings with ease.

While running errands yesterday I decided to wear my oversized mock-neck sweater by Trouve.  My husband gifted this to me for Christmas two years ago & it has become a staple in my winter wardrobe.

I love playing with textures, so I paired this cozy sweater with a faux leather legging & faux suede bootie.  Below is an up-close picture of just how soft & comfortable this pullover sweater is!20161121_195149
