This grey sweater and black leggings look is definitely my kind of outfit! While not a fan of cold weather, I am a huge fan of cold weather attire. When I saw this cozy, cute and affordable sweater in TJMaxx a month ago, I knew it had to be mine! Frantically scouring the racks, I found the last of my size and placed it in my cart. Mission accomplished! I was so sure the sweater would fit, I didn’t even try it on. That’s very unlike me. I always like to try on items before purchasing, but in this case I went with my gut and purchased it anyway. In the end it worked out in my favor.

Before this purchase, I’d been looking to add a grey sweater to my wardrobe for quite sometime. It’s not secret that I wear leggings, a lot, so over-sized sweaters and tunics have become a wardrobe staple. When wearing leggings your top should cover your bottom. I also think wearing tops that flare out a bit or have slits on the side look very flattering on my figure when styling them with leggings, or even straight leg jeans/bottoms.
Aside from warm and cozy sweaters, I’m also a fan of stylish winter coats. Now let me clarify; I’ll choose to wear a fly cape over a heavy, bulky coat any day! I detest being hot, so capes are usually my go-to winter outerwear choices. However when the temperatures are disrespectfully low, I can suck it up and deal with a heavy, yet stylish, winter coat. This DKNY coat was a Valentine’s Day gift from hubs 2 years ago. He was tired of me wearing only capes and “heavy cardigans” during the winter and then complaining about being cold. Nice gesture, huh?
So tell me, what do you think of my grey sweater and black leggings outfit? Also, how do you feel about heavy winter coats? Let me know!
Thanks for stopping by today! Your readership and comments are always appreciated. Until next time, be blessed and stay safe…XO!
