The New Year has started with a bang and I am so thrilled it’s 2015. I don’t know about you, but I just have a feeling that this is going to be a good year! Hopefully I didn’t just jinx it! Jeremy & I decided to ring the New Year in together since we both worked during the day and it would’ve been tough to shuttle around to our friends big New Years Eve bash. So we ended up heading out to a lovely little spot called Prohibition in Yaletown. We were treated to a few tasty drinks (ahem, maybe a few too many!), lots of tasty bites, and champagne at midnight.
I’ll be the first to tell you that come the cold weather, I just want to keep indoors and plan trips to warm tropic destinations. My winter is usually filled with movie nights, spa-day’s at home, and cuddling up under the covers with a good book. Especially after our big New Year’s Eve night out at Prohibition, I figured that we’d likely want to spend a few days indoors (recovering and recouping from out late night festivities); But my lazy day schedule of watching a trilogy, reading Cameron Diaz’s The Body Book, and spa-daying it up was quickly nixed, and suddenly food and coffee was on the menu instead.
With the promise of BKH Jerky and a cappuccino from Revolver, I was lured from my comfortable home and out into the cold blustery rain. That guy really knows how to get me motivated- food and coffee! He even said once we were out “I know there’s nothing that’ll get you out of the house quicker than the thought of coffee!” – I guess I really am transparent!
How to Wear a Oversized Sweater
Since I was tearing myself away from the comfy warm indoor blanket-shelter that I’ve created, I decided to take a little comfort with me in the form of a super-cozy sweater and over-sized neutral-tone plaid blanket scarf. Over the last few weeks, I have been obsessed with these pieces, they are cozy and perfect for the chilly weather.
The key to wearing oversized pieces is to balance them with items that fit you properly. Rather than wearing a large sweater, slouchy jeans, and a ill fitted shirt, wear a large sweater with a pair of slim fitting jeans and a shirt that skims over your torso.
Add on Cozy Looking Pieces
There’s nothing like plaid, and knit scarves to create a really cozy and winter-ready look. Add in a oversized sweater, and suddenly you’ve created a look that’ll keep you warm and look great!!
