Brrr its cold in here: Sweater Roundup

sweaters
Its not officially winter yet but it sure does feel like it already. And this Cali girl is freezing her buns off! I usually just want to wrap up in some really warm sweats, a cozy sweater and fuzzy slipper….alas, since I can step out of the house like that. some comfy crew neck sweatshirts will have to do. I have a ton of favorites…too many to count so I wanted to do a little round up on my favorite and fun, accessible sweaters. Go pick them up now!!
I love how sweaters are definitely a great go-to piece to just throw on with some jeans or even a skirt! and you don’t have to feel like your are skimping out on style. Have fun with it! and with places like forever 21 and target having a lot of cute affordable options…there’s no reason to choose. you can get one of each (well that’s my theory anyways)

Roman Holiday… with a bump

Roman Holiday with a baby bump

Our Roman Getaway is a week away. This will be the last time we travel abroad before our little man makes an appearance…..so technically this is our babymoon! We planned it before we knew we were pregnant and when we found out, it was literally God’s grace that it ended up being in my second trimester when I could still travel. We had to tweak our itinerary a bit so the trip could be more “pregnant lady friendly”.  Instead of trotting all over the country, we picked two places we just had to go to in order to cut down on travel/transfer time giving us a chance to relax and settle down in each place rather than being… go go go all the time.

We will be settling in the hustle and bustle of Rome and all its Romance and then jetting out to the Italian Riviera for some R&R in Cinque Terre….Im looking for coastal views, hot sun, and some water time for this pregnant lady.

Try it Out-fit: Long Cardigans and Shorts

cardigan over short inspiration
Pairing a long cardigan with some sexy and flattering shorts is perfect for spring. You get to show a little leg while staying demure and a little bit warmer up top (for those sometimes chilly+sunny days). I was inspired by OPs look pictured above (looove her) and hopefully you try this outfit style yourself.
One tip: make sure the sweater hits below the hem of the shorts and pair with some demure heels…not too high.

I would love to wear a bold cardigan with some neutral shorts and blouse with a played down heal.
