THE LOOK | tiered sweater c/o, navy skirt (similar) chestnut booties (i’m obsessed)

Okay, I GIVE UP! This week officially has kicked my butt – and it’s only Thursday! So I did what any normal person would do. I took tomorrow off and made it a three day week. (PS: I have more vacation days to use until the end of the month, sooooo I kinda have to choose days, I’m not just being dramatic right now.)

But of course I’m not totally taking the day off. I have a lot of blog work and a shoot, so I’ll definitely still be busy. The only good thing is I’ll be able to sleep in. And I’m pretty excited about that.

I think statement (blanket) scarves came first. Then it was statement necklaces. And then I think it was statement earrings.

Now, it’s statement sweaters.

(PS: Check out this other post where I wore another Chicwish sweater that had a fun/bold detail!)

This Chicwish sweater is what I like to call “interesting”. But clearly, interesting is my type. I mean do you remember this post? I am ALL ABOUT a good (and somewhat crazy) sweater.  I love this one because of the cable detail, and at under $100, it’s a great piece to try out the trend. Once it gets ridiculously cold, I’ll probably swap the navy skirt out for a black one (I have my eye on this one) with tights.

I wanted to talk about my new booties because I’m literally OBSESSED! I was in desperate need of a new pair of booties because I’ve been wearing my Alexander Wang (If you search “booties” on my site, you’ll see JUST how much I wear them.) booties to death. After seeing these booties on Anna, I was hooked on them! I love the chestnut color and the slight heel. They’re SO comfortable, but if you have a wide foot, I definitely recommend sizing up because they’re a tiny bit narrow. OH WAIT! They also come in black and are currently 20% off making them under $100!

Overall, I think this is a pretty easy and simple look! Do you agree?
