Oversized and Pink
I posted a poll on my Instagram stories a few days ago and asked if my followers wanted to see the details on this look or a grey slip dress. The race was pretty close but as the day came to an end, hot pink won! Be sure to follow me if you want in on the action. This blog will be a team effort. We in it togetha!
I stalked this sweater on the Zara site for weeks after first seeing it on my favorite style gal, Helena over at the Brooklyn Blonde. She posted it in one of her blog posts where she talked about all of her Fall finds and go to looks. I also ended up purchasing a handbag she mentioned in that post as well however, I was able to get mine on sale at ShopBop. Unfortunately it’s sold out there now:( When I first went to purchase the sweater it was sold out and sadness overtook me. Dramatic, I know…
Well after a few more weeks of diligently checking the site, finally it became available. There are several other colors but the pink stole my heart and I’m so happy I got my hands on it. Guys, don’t be mad…it’s currently sold out again. I’m SAWRY! But I would suggest to keep your eyes open and a quick note that Zara goes on sale the day after Christmas. Hint Hint
Who would have thought that hot pink and red would look pretty darn good together? I saw Brooklyn Blonde pair the sweater with a red handbag and some two toned mules in red/pink. I know these two colors with the cream loafers I opted for isn’t a typical paring but I think as long as it is subtly done, it can work. Try to avoid printed garments in the baby steps of mixing non traditional pairings.
The sweater is super warm and I will most definitely be packing this up for my holiday travels home to Philly! Who else is stalking the sweater? I’ll keep an eye out for you too!
