Did you survive going back to real life today after a long holiday weekend? Ben actually had most of today off and the kids are sick so we kept them in pajamas, put up our tree, and snuggled to a few episodes of Barney. Lincoln’s voice has started going hoarse and it is as adorable as it is sad.
In the late afternoon Ben and I snuck out for a little rainy hot chocolate date downtown and I threw on the coziest of sweaters I picked up at Charming Charlie’s. It’s the kind of outfit in which you won’t begrudge having to get off the couch and head to a holiday party because you won’t have to change. It works just as well for running holiday errands as it does for Christmas dinner parties. And really, I’m just dreaming of snuggling up in it next to a crackling fire in a ski lodge somewhere in snow drenched mountains (if you have a ski lodge and want company, we’ll join you 😉 ).
The key to the cozy + flattering fit is the side slits that manage to hide your post-feasting pooch while still elongating your legs. It comes in a caramel color too that I’ve already ordered here (my size was sold out in store) and five hours after our hot chocolate date, I’ve ditched the skinny jeans but still have on this sweater with my sweatpants. So, whether you’re shopping for a sister or a friend…or you’re just looking for the perfect clothing item to live in for the next few months, this is it. Use the code HOL1060 for $10 off your purchase of $60 or more through December 6th.
sweater // under $40! I’m wearing a medium for an oversized fit but it runs true to size (also available in a great caramel color I ordered today)
bag // My store had almost completely sold out of this tote because it’s that good but it’s fully stocked online (comes in 4 colors and is under $40)
lace-up flats // I can’t find them online but they had lots in my local Charming Charlie’s store
watch // love the deep wine color
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of CHARMING CHARLIE. But the two hours of trying on everything in the store to find the very perfect sweater worth obsessing over, along with all the pictures + opinions are my own ;).
