Clean Slate: Cozy Layers

I had a slight glimpse of Spring this weekend (since it was above 30 in the Chicagoland area) and I loved it. While I’m not fooled into thinking this is the start of Spring and know there are likely many more frigid days ahead, there was just something in the air this weekend. Hope. We know spring is coming eventually, and with it will come new blooms, fresh air, and a clean slate.

And cozy layers. I’ve been living in this sweater lately (remember it here?) and I’ve found the perfect, most comfy tee to wear underneath it. Yes, you guessed it: they’re both on sale. 

I’m never giving up my mega flares. Any chance for my short, little legs to look longer, I’ll take. I paired these flares with higher heels than I would normally wear. Flares + heels = perfection.

Happy Monday, sweet people. Here’s to a week filled with hope, cozy layers and everything sweet.

      Thank you! I love them, too. So chic and comfortable, you just can’t go wrong!

  • The Sicilian Swede

    I love how you styled your flares! I have some denim flares hiding in my closet from ages ago…perhaps I should pull those out! You’ve given me some style inspiration, thank you :).

    • suzanne

      Thank you! I’m so glad. Dust ’em off and rock ’em! 🙂

  • Marguerite

    First, you are stunning! Second- that sweater looks beyond cozy! I wish I could look like you do in those flares! Damn girl! Love it

    • suzanne

      You are so sweet! You could totally rock some flares 🙂

  • Sarah @ Windy City Wanderlust

    Those jeans are amazing. I feel like flares can sometimes make you look stumpy, but on you they look long and lean. Love this look!

    • suzanne

      Thank you! And it’s so funny, because I’m not long and lean – I’m only 5’6″!

  • Lydia Guanga

    What a great look! It’s incredibly comfortable looking, but still very pulled together – not slouchy! I have a pair of wide boot-cut jeans that I’ll also never get rid of – they make my legs look miles long!

    • suzanne

      Thank you! They truly are magic 🙂

  • Carolyn Rose

    Way to totally rock that outfit! I will have to dig up my old flare pants; you’ve inspired me. Btw, your daughter is absolutely adorable. 🙂

    • suzanne

      Awww, thank you, Carolyn. And yes – dust them off! 🙂

  • Christine W

    I am not usually into flared jeans, but girl you rock that outfit! I love how you incorporated stripes with a cozy sweater too. Definitely going to use that as inspiration for my next trip!

    • suzanne

      Awesome! So glad I could help. Thank you!

  • Ali

    This is such a fashionable yet functional outfit! I love it so much. It’s not everyday that you see that 🙂

    • suzanne

      Thanks, Ali! It’s super comfortable, which is a mama must have 🙂
