Fairytale Forest & A Cropped Cable Knit

Happy Monday Everyone ! 

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have been enjoying the posts going up this week ! I know I am extremely excited to share them with you and am very glad that I have actually managed to get them up knowing me haha. On this particular day when I shot the photos wearing said outfit it happened to be one of the first actual snow storms of the season, wonderful right lol ! None the less, I still wanted to shoot the photos even though I would freeze my butt off and they turned out wonderful if I do say so myself. The snow adds such a whimsical feeling, especially since it was actually snowing, unlike the photos we took in the snow earlier on in November which were also beautiful but not quite as magical. 

Today I am sharing with you a look that I have worn many times this year already featuring This Sweater from SammyDress that I am absolutely in love with. I have talked briefly about SammyDress in a previous post of my Black Purse Picks from the website, so you can check that out if you want to read more about it but just to reiterate; SammyDress is an online web store specializing in fashionable clothing at the lowest price. They also have things such as Beauty Products, Home Decor, Shoes, Accessories as well as Men’s and Children’s clothing. This was my first thing ever ordering from the site but I am really happy with how everything turned out.

I was really happy with the quality of the sweater when it arrived, it looked exactly how it did on the website and fit just as it would say it did as well. It is a cropped burgundy cable knit sweater with lace up back detailing which makes it extra special. It also has a light V-neck shape that is not super low and so it is easy to pair with scarves as I have done here or just to make sure you aren’t showing too much cleavage on it’s own. The sweater is very cropped as well so it looks beautiful with high waisted skirts and pants as it hits just at the waistline where you want your shirt to begin and your skirt or pants to end. It is also a 3/4 length sleeve which makes it perfect for showing off bracelets or even gloves during the wintertime because your sweater won’t be all bunched underneath them. 

Like I was saying above, the sweater goes perfectly with high waisted skirts and so lately I have been wearing it with my trust black skater skirt as it seemed like the most natural thing to do. This skater skirt is a little bit higher in the waist so I wore it to make sure that no skin was showing in between the two as it is very cold outside and bare skin isn’t fun. It would be lovely to have some skin showing at the waist in the fall though, I think that would look beautiful when it was not as cold. I decided to go with nude tights to break up the volume on top and add a way for my boots to pop (sometimes with black legging everything tends to blend together). 

To keep me warm and also add a little extra texture and winter appropriateness to the outfit, I added my faux fur circle scarf which is one of my favorite things during the colder months. It is very voluminous so it keeps you warm but also adds an element of glamour because the fur is pretty realistic looking. To finish off the look I just decided to pair it with my trusty Michael Kors Selma which keeps the warm tone going throughout the outfit and also brings out the warmer tones in the scarf. Lastly, to accessorize I just have on my Thomas Sabo charm bracelet which was perfect to wear with the sweater because it highlights it beautifully and I was also wearing my Return to Tiffany Necklace which you can not see because the scarf is covering it but if I were to take the scarf off that is what would be there haha.

I am extremely happy with this sweater as I can confirm by how many times I have worn it already and will definitely be purchasing from SammyDress again in the future. For the price, the clothing is amazing and definitely worth a look if you have not checked them out already ! 

Now I am off to work unfortunately, even though I have been deathly sick for the past few days (again) it seems to be going around a lot this year. Oh well, hopefully it will be over with soon, and even if it isn’t I’m not really complaining because it gives me more time to work on blog posts while I am stuck in bed !

I hope you all have a wonderful day, there should be at least one more post this week so stay tuned ! 

Thank you all for reading <3
