Dear Fashion Diary,

Usually I'm all about layers, layers, layers. But this time I decided to take 
David Thorough's advice and "simplify"! 
Sometimes a girl just needs to be warm and comfy without the fuss of a bunch of accessories. This was on a freezing cold day and this go-to cable knit sweater is just what I need to warm up in! I look forward to winters Specifically because of this sweater :)

And if I ever want to be very comfortable but feel like a million bucks- I simply put on these jeans. I'm sure we all saw them on The Daybook, 
and I coveted them ever since their appearance on her blog. I almost bought them full price, but my patience paid off because I got them on sale for about 80% off! 
It never fails to wait for a sale. 
Yes, you can quote me on that proverb.

As for the shoes- I decided there still wasn't enough sparkle in my life and bought these on clearance, $9! They go with just about everything so prepare to see these babies around here more often.

Pants/sweater: Gap///Sparkle flats: Old Navy

I love, love this outfit! Simple, classy, and pretty :) I definitely did see those amazing jeans on the Daybook. They didn't quite work for me, but I found a similar wide leg pair from Madewell via Ebay that I love :)

I really like those kind of sweaters but they really make me look huge BUT who cares!! Like what you said! Every girl needs their comfort day! <3


Jessi said...

Sara you are seriously the sweetest person! Thanks so much for your commet on my post friday, it made my day!
You ROCK those wide-leg jeans. I have some but they're not nearly this cute and I don't look as amazing in them...haha. Love the sweater too, it looks so comfy but the texture definitely gives it style. And I just bought some glitter flats not too long ago and can't stop wearing them everyday! They seriouly do go with EVERYTHING.

The first thing I thought when I saw this post was "weren't those the pants Sydney wore", hahaha. I also wanted to buy them, but the flare jeans just don't look great on my body. You, however, look fantastic in them...thanks for linking up :)

Corinne said...

I absolutely love this-- I am a total jeans gal who keeps it simple during the wintertime (accessories never go well with scarves and bundling) & those pants are FANTASTIC! i have been looking for wide leg pants (but have failed on the jean/pant adventure thus far) haha
as for your sale quote, I CONCUR! :DD
