Pink & Red

Everyday Outfits, My Style

Pink & Red, Sweater Dress, how to wear pink and red, nyc fashion blogger, closet confections, red ankle boots{H&M Sweater Dress (similar), VINTAGE Beret, DOONEY & BOURKE Crossbody Bag, BAUBLE BAR Earrings, VALENTINO Sunglasses, MISS SELFRIDGE Ankle Boots}

I only got into this color combo a few years ago, but I’m totally digging it. Pink and red have been my favorite colors since childhood, but for some strange reason, I never thought to pair them together. In any case, I’m making up for lost time.

I’ve been living in this super cozy oversized sweater dress for the past few weeks with no plans to stop any time soon. It’s sold out online, but if you swing by your location H&M, I’ll be you can find one. I popped into two stores recently, and they still had a number of sizes in stock.

About the Fit
Even though this dress is definitely oversized, I went up a size for extra coziness (and to guard against shrinkage). My husband asked me if I bought the right size, but sometimes boys just don’t get it, lol! As the temps continue to drop, I’ll also be wearing this with leggings and tights for a different look.

The Best $20 I Ever Spent {H&M Chenille Sweater + Red Ankle Boots}

Everyday Outfits, My Style

how to wear red ankle boots, nyc fashion blog, closet confections{UNIQLO Coat (similar), H&M Chenille Sweater (only $20!) + Tassel Earrings (favorite earrings EVER!), ZARA Brocade Leggings, VINTAGE Red Beret, RALPH LAUREN Bucket Bag, VALENTINO, Sunglasses, MISS SELFRIDGE Red Ankle Boots}

If I look super-geeked in the above photo, it’s because I was pretty excited about this outfit. It’s full of all the things I love:

  1. Let’s start with this ahh-ma-zing chenille sweater I scooped up at H&M recently for just $20. If you follow me on the ‘gram (and if you don’t, I forgive you), then you may have caught my celebratory boomerang shimmy when I first bought it.
  2. My absolute favorite earrings – Seriously, I have these in three colors already, and I’m patiently awaiting my 4th pair to arrive in the mail. I get TONS of compliments whenever I wear them.
  3. This Ralph Lauren bucket bag is a life-saver on the weekends. It’s compact, yet large enough to hold all of my essentials, including my huge DSLR camera which can be a pain to lug around. I’ve had this black one for two years, and I purchased a gorgeous caramel version earlier this year.
  4. These red ankle boots are a new addition to my wardrobe, and I feel so sassy whenever I wear them. They also have a chunky heels which makes them perfect for pounding the pavement.

About the Fit:
This chenille sweater is officially my jam, and I’ve already decided I’m gonna get it in more colors. And at just $20 a pop, can you really blame me? It’s the perfect cropped length that makes it easy to wear with pants and skirts. I really love how it’s boxy, yet still feminine because of the slightly ballooned sleeves. This gorgeous red color is so cheery and festive that I know it’ll be a staple over the holidays. No ugly Christmas sweaters for me this year!

Uniqlo x J.W. Anderson

Everyday Outfits, My Style

{UNIQLO X J.W. ANDERSON Sweater & Scarf, FOREVER 21 Skirt, AMERICAN APPAREL Clutch, SALVATORE FERRAGAMO Sunglasses, J. CREW ‘Elsie’ Pumps}

Uniqlo is hands-down one of my favorite places to shop for quality basics, so I was super stoked when they announced their partnership with J.W. Anderson. Unlike the frenzies associated with a lot of high profile designer collaborations with lower-priced retailers, for some reason  the Uniqlo/J.W. collab was pretty low key. Whatever the reason, I wasn’t complaining as I was able to snatch up the two pieces I’d had my eye on with no problem at all. As soon as I saw this sweater and scarf combo online, I knew I had to have them in my wardrobe. The colors are so bright and bold, and they just bring a smile to my face whenever I wear them together.

About the Fit:
Believe it or not, this is a men’s sweater. I went with a medium for more of  relaxed feel that I can also wear untucked with jeans. There’s also a turtleneck version for women if rocking a boyfriend style isn’t your thing. The scarf is a really warm and cozy and made from a high-quality knit. Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with the Uniqlo x J.W. Anderson collection and would highly recommend it. There’s still quite a bit of pieces in stock, and I’m seriously considering going back for this reversible trench.
