how to wear oversized sweater style

Spotting oversize sweaters everywhere? We’re not talking about loose or slightly baggy sweaters. We’re talking about huge, body-swallowing sweater styles remixed into some really original looks. It’s officially sweater weather, and winter fashion 2017 is updating the trend with a casual update on this season’s favorite staple, sweaters. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | oversized sweater c/o:GRANA | boots c/o:SHOES OF PREY Wearing a sweater just got more fun If you’re like me, your closet is literally bursting at the seams with thick, chunky knits wadded up on shelves and hangers alike.

Check out some of my favorite fashion blockers rocking the trend! You’ll notice in the below ootd inspo, each oversized sweater outfit is centralized on the cozy, comfort factor of the knit.

knot dress and luxury streetstyle

Too in love with this dress gifted from Too Damn Expensive to not write a blog post about it. If you caught the IG post, you know it’s one of my favorite looks of the season. Knotted everything is so on point for a fresh take on deconstructed basics. From knot-back sweaters to knotted slides, this twisted classic has been flooding streetstyle looks starting from spring and moving heavily into fall. What’s great about the trend? It’s completely fresh, but totally wearable so you’re not screaming “oh, that girl must be in fashion.” It’s edgy, but still wearable for a night out or day in the office. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | dress c/o:TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE | luxury tote:GIVENCHY | shoes c/o:SHOES OF PREY | sunnies:RAYBAN In regards to this dress in particular, the look is also extremely versatile. You can choose to leave the straps tied or untied for a more relaxed fit. Looking for an even more dramatic update? You can knot the bottom of the hem with the side panels …

not the same as I was with you

Back where we started, and doin’ just fine. Change is in the water, and the water feels right. The sky is pale, and the faint smell of my packed sandwich is somehow suffocating. The train is in motion, and it’s moving fast – goodbye NYC, the journey back to where it started begins. The mood? Calm. Still like the water in the windless exterior on the other side of the glass. Out there it’s deceivingly cold, with only a faint chill creeping through the window sill. Song on repeat: Frenship’s Capsize. 8 hours left to go and I’ll once again be home. Catching up on notes from the week, sorting through holiday photos reliving time well spent. Giving in to the journey set before me, today and for the years to come. Contemplating life’s most recent twists and turns, and once again find myself facing uncertainty… but with open arms. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III |ootd c/o:LULU’S | luxury sterling silver and diamond jewelry c/o:MICHAEL HILL Change is inevitable.

say you’ll remember me

Walked into the grocery store this weekend to the welcoming aroma of freshly brewed, pumpkin spice latte, only to discover on my way out that it was actually perfumed pinecones… who came up with this madness?! While usually apprehensive of the changing of the seasons (hey fall fans… did you forget that WINTER comes next??)… this year I actually find myself quite ready for the cool morning air. Feels like a fresh start every day. Plus, I have been eying my growing stack of knit sweaters that I’m dying to get into. So much so, that I would actually feel a bit deceitful if I did not also share with you, that I am currently wearing said sweater – even though outdoors should reach the mid-eighties today. Hey – it’s cool in the air conditioning. #dontjudge White after Labor Day? Bring it on. (I just realized all of my paragraphs begin with “W” today… weird) Wearing a new top from Danice Stores that was a total steal, and layering on the white for fall transition. Fashion rules are made to …

some days can be classic

So this wardrobe combo isn’t particularly in my preferred choice of adorning myself. Though nothing is inherently wrong with it. In fact, I find it to be a quite pleasant combo – it’s just not very “me”. The shoot was for a corporate project for one of our brands, Nicole Shoes. Classy, sophisticated, homey. I tend to lean towards modern, minimal, and even a bit cold. So needless to say this left me feeling a bit froo-froo by the time we wrapped the day up. Many times in the fashion industry, one has to become flexible with adopting a unique persona for the brands or items they will be representing. And to be quite good, one must actually put themselves aside and “become” that person. After all, if you want to convince someone else, you’re going to have to be convinced yourself! Which can leave one feeling a bit like a disorientated chameleon. Blogging, I’m refreshed to find to be the complete opposite. Here, one has the freedom to express yourself fully, completely, and unconditionally. The clearer version of yourself you become, …
