Cozy Ribbed Knits.
Happy Monday and Happy November you all! 2 more months left to 2015. BIG GASP!!! I hope you all had a fantastic Halloween!! I hadn't been feeling so well and with Vivian's allergy problems, her weak immune system and the flu bug around, we decided not to take her trick or treating. I even had an Elsa from Frozen costume for her and all. I ended up returning it on Halloween day. Oh well. We all feel better now.
Big cozy knits are a huge trend this season, well more so than in the past few years, at least. You know the type of sweaters that are chunky and super warm, oversized big yarn scarves, sweater dresses that feel like blankets, thick cozy socks scrunched on top of the boots and such. Today, I shopped my closet for big cozy knits and put this outfit together to go grocery shopping (overdressed I know, especially since I wore a trench-coat over it). You know I featured an Infinity Burgundy Sweater Scarf a couple of posts ago. This is another Infinity Scarf but it is bigger and made of the softest thick ribbed knitting. This is the "Forenza" Scarf from The Limited. The Limited was the first store to come up with the Infinity Scarves about 7 years ago and I purchased the Forenza Scarf you see here in this gorgeous shade of Coral and in a Deep Purple. You will see this scarf again - I can think of at least 5 more ways to style these big circle sweater scarves.
Paired with my Cozy Sweater Scarf, I have on another Thick Knit by The Limited - this Cream/Tan Cropped Ribbed Cardigan. And I added a third knit with my Light Ribbed Silver Sleeveless Turtleneck from Casual Corner (from many years ago). So between my three ribbed knits layered on top, even without a full-length sleeve I was very warm. I also shopped my closet for the Boots and Bag. The Jeans are new though. I have had them for about a couple of months but this is their first time on the blog. I finally tried a pair of Denizen by Levi's Jeans (sold at Target) and this particular "Modern Skinny" pair fit beautifully. I wish to find a very dark blue distressed wash and a light blue distressed pair in this style, too, in my size. Last but not least, I wanted to say that I wrapped up the week by wearing both Pink (the color of breast cancer month) and orange (the color of Halloween) since this scarf is between both colors and how perfect that I wore this outfit on Halloween night while grocery shopping and clothes-shopping (for Vivian) with my mom.
And, coming up this week: more layers and more orange, a "Currently" post, a Link-Up on Wednesday November 4th so welcome by and link up your stylish outfits, as well as a 6 Remix post. So stay tuned. Thank you for reading and as always I appreciate your feedback, comments and compliments you all give me. Have a Fantastic first week of November!!
