The Blanket Sweater

Nov 11, 2014

Sweater: American Eagle (c/o) // Shirt: H&M (Similar) // Boots: American Eagle (c/o) // Socks: Forever 21 // Bracelets: Busywrist // Necklace: Shamelessy Sparkly (c/o) (Similar) // Bag: Asos // Sunnies: Cole Haan // Lipstick: ELF 

One of my favorite things about winter is walking around my apartment with a blanket draped over my shoulders at all times.




Which is probably why it only took a hot minute to fall in love with this drapey boho blanket sweater from American Eagle.  It’s chunky, thick and warm, and best of all, it’s basically a blanket with sleeves.

Here I paired it with high wasted jeans and my favorite graphic tee (my roommate Kate saw it in H&M and bought it for me just because — she knew it had my name written all over it!) You can find a similar one here (it’s  a PJ shirt but I think it’s equally as cute and comfy!) These silver boots are also my new obsession. I love the punky-glam element they add to pretty much anything I wear them with, and they might be the most comfortable boots I’ve ever worn.

Be sure to check out my feature on American Eagle’s style blog, along with my friend Megan from Lush to Blush, who also styled her favorite AEO blanket sweater!

On another note, my friend Kelly and I recently came up with a genius little partnership, recently realizing the dilemma that is daylight savings time. It puts a major damper on the whole boyfriend/husband photographer thing. It gets dark before they even get home from work! Luckily, Kelly and I decided we can just play photographer for each other! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, you definitely need to hop over there.  (P.S. you also might recognize her from this feature on The Everygirl!)
