I am not one to wear a lot of colour and if I look closely, my wardrobe mainly consists of black, white, grey and navy blue…a lot of blue. What started off as wearing darker colours to appear slimmer has revamped my entire wardrobe and style. I often envy girls who wear bright colours and I always tell myself that next time I go shopping, I should buy something colourful.However, every single time I’m at the store, it’s like the dark forces draw me to them and the next thing I know I’m holding ten things to try and non of them have colour.
This purple sweater is the perfect in between- a nice transition if you will from my neutral wardrobe into colour. It’s not bright enough that I feel overwhelmed but it’s something new!! I don’t own anything that’s purple and I’m baffled as to why that is because I am in love with this colour! I think it’s so beautiful with so many different skin tones and it’s perfect for the winter months to bring out some pop of colour when everything is dark and grey all the time.
I love the loose fit of this sweater as well. The main reason being that the holidays brings out my inner desire to eat everything and self control goes out the door. Home girl does not need a tight sweater to hold me down. That’s the magic of a baggy loose sweater- eat as much as you want and no one has to know. Pull on some leggings and you’re ready for a feast.
I usually don’t write a lot of fashion inspired posts but I think I may start doing these because I’ve really been discovering my personal style this year and I want to share it with you guys! Let me know if you have any suggestions and I hope everyone is having an amazing christmas eve!! (or happy holidays in general!)
