Sweaters and stripes – my two favorite things to wear in the winter. I know I know, I bought another stripe! But seriously, this one is so soft I wear it all the time! Actually, after I picked this one up, I did a purge of my closet and got rid of a ton of stripes I no longer wear in order to keep my collection somewhat in control. Do y’all do closet clean-outs a lot? I swear I do them all the time! My closet in our apartment is so small, and we have such limited storage, I really try hard not to let things get out of hand. I also do this with beauty products too. Some times you just have to say “no, I’m never ever going to use/wear this” and chuck it (or donate!) just to get it out of the house! In any case, as I was putting this look together, I knew I wanted to add a bit of color, so I decided to throw on my neon pink sweater that really packs a punch! I love how you can slightly see the stripes through the sweater when they’re worn together, but I ended up keeping it tied around my waist most of the day and layered with my black coat that goes with just about everything this winter.
