Hello and welcome to Fashion Files here where we link up to show our style each Thursday.
Here are my real life clothes!
My vibe last week was jeans and sweaters while I taught virtually from my classroom. This is my black Amazon sweater that I bought to wear with my leopard skirt, my Target jeans, and my new sneakers. While the sweater has some pills, I have worn it and washed it (laid flat to dry) enough to recommend it. I could have gone up one size I think.
Speaking of going up one size…a sweet reader talked to me in the comments about people gravitating towards ponchos to hide (and that I shouldn’t) and that is quite true. I am not excited to wear my ponchos anymore.
So, I can’t seem to help it – I want my holiday clothing. I ordered this but in no way is it off the shoulder. I don’t even think it would be off the shoulder on anyone because the neck is just not that wide.
Here is how it fits on me:
I wore non-jeans to start this week back with students.
Here I am wearing it with jeans on Saturday:
It comes in multiple colors and at $37, it is a bit pricey for an Amazon sweater, but this also fits my theory that one needs to pay a bit more for an Amazon clothing purchase to be a worthwhile one? And, maybe this isn’t true, but it has seemed true for me.
I also ordered this one:
And, this is how it fits me:
Again, this price point was a little higher.
I am happy with both of them and decided to keep both. My son did tell me I look like a Care Bear in the second one and gosh, I’m just happy that he knows all of the 80s pop culture I worked to instill in him.
I don’t know if dropped shoulders are that great for me, but on these two items I decided I didn’t care.
I know I said I was done with winter clothing, but I got bored. I needed something to show up on my doorstep, you know?
