Lately I've kinda been in a funk when it comes to getting dressed. I just haven't been loving anything I put together. I feel like all I want to wear is big oversized sweaters that will cover my butt so I can wear leggings as pants. Problem is, I can't find any long sweaters! So, I gotta just work with what I got. What do you do when you don't know what to do with what ya got? You turn to Pinterest. As soon as I ordered this sweater, I looked on Pinterest for some pinspiration on how to style it. I got my pinspiration for this outfit from this pin and this pin put together.  Buttt as much as I love Pinterest and as much as I love this mustard sweater, I still just wanna wear big sweaters! Is that too much for a gal to ask?? People, please, where do I find the big sweaters? 


  1. Gap. I actually talked about big sweaters on my blog today. And they have a few big sweaters. You could get it in tall.

  2. I'm so obsessed with denim/chambray and mustard. I got the same idea from pinterest and have been wearing it probably too much, but it works!

    I mostly get my big sweaters from H&M, although I recently thrifted a men's sweater and love it! It's a little long on the arms, but it definitely covers the butt!


  3. I love this! Totally copying this style : ) I bought a cotton pencil skirt a few months ago and I just love it with practically anything.

  4. I've got some long sweaters from Old Navy that sound just about right, they aren't big and chunky though. I really like your outfit, and will probably copy it at some point =)

  5. Man, I hear ya. Forever 21 has some cute chunky sweaters online. I keep wanting to hit "place order!"

  6. ohemgee, I love your outfit :) Also, I feel like big chunky sweaters don't work-- if you try to wear an XXL, it's not big and chunky, it's just wide. Have you tried men's sweaters? Let me know if you do and how it works out!

  7. Love this outfit! The chambray and mustard is a great combination.

  8. I'm with you, girl! I just want to be comfy, cozy, and warm! Your outfit is SUPER cute, though!

  9. the set looks fabulous. I have a pinstripes tube skirt and I like to wear it something like this. It's really pinspiring <3


  10. Yes where the heck are all the super long, thick, beautiful sweaters long enough to wear with leggings?? If you find any, please share!! Long cardigans are cool and all but not quite what I'm going for. They all look so cozy!!

  11. I have been thinking the same thing about cozy sweaters! I cannot find any that are long enough without being too long, you know? Anyway, I love this combo - I have been looking for a mustard cardigan for a while because it seriously seems to go with everything!

  12. OMG I just totally wore the exact same outfit the other day! Except my boots were a different color, but seriously, how weird is that? I do love your version, and wish I had included a sparkly necklace, too!

  13. Just found your blog when I was searching mustard cardigans on Pinterest for my blog. I love it!!!! I have that same skirt.
