Warm On A Cold Night

 


Slip dress: Make Me Chic | Cardigan: Target (Similar) | Boots: Target (Similar)

Hey everyone! So sorry for the lag in updating these past few weeks! I've been super busy as of lately but I finally found some time today to put up a much-needed posted on here. I really don't like leaving this blog empty for too long, it bums me out. :c

I didn't even realize until editing these photos that this outfit could easily work as a Valentine's Day themed look so that's what I'm gonna go with here. Slips and a cozy, oversized cardigan are often my go-to outfit and it's nice to know that this cozy glam combo can also seamlessly transition into a flirty and romantic look. This gorgeous, burgundy slip is perfect for Valentine's Day and I especially adore the delicate lace detail that lines the bottom. I also strayed from my usual nude-toned lip to don a matching burgundy lip stain from ELF. I would usually wear nude heels with this look but since its been on the chillier side, I rocked a classic pair of leather ankle boots instead. The boots paired with the dark oversized cardigan gave the look a slightly grungier feel, which I found to be a fun little stray from my usual feminine getups. One of my favorite aspects about the slip dress is that it's a super versatile piece that can be worn year round, regardless of the occasion or season. They can be dressed up or down, layered to toasty perfection or worn in their breezy simplicity, and be styled to fit whatever aesthetic it is that you want to go for. I usually go for a more girly, blush-adorned feminine feel (like with this look) but I'm loving the simpler, edgier feel that comes along with this particular outfit. 

Also, fun fact about this cardigan: it's got an incredibly great oversized feel to it, but only because it actually is oversized! I stumbled upon this gem over winter in the Target back up in Capitola and was at first bummed to see that they didn't have it in anything close to my size. I decided to try it on anyway just for fun, only to discover that this piece fit like a perfectly oversized cardigan. I now wear it everywhere. It is literally one of the coziest items I own and it feels like I'm wearing a blanket without actually looking like I'm being drowned out in one. Next time you want to find that perfect oversized sweater, I would suggest just finding a normal sized piece you like and going a few sizes up. I think Target may now be sold out of this specific cardigan but they've definitely got a whole lot of other options to sift through. I would also recommend trying them on in person if you can because not all oversized items will actually give you that effortless oversized fit. Sometimes they'll just look baggy lol. It's all about finding that one special piece and making it work just for you!
