It’s here!  My first outfit post of 2014.  It feels good to have something to share with you.  But I have to admit, it feels better not to have the nagging stress of everyday posting hanging over my head.  In fact, I haven’t really done my hair or make-up in two weeks (thanks to the holidays, working from home and the weather).  I curled my hair for the first time today and it felt like I was getting ready for prom.  But I digress…

This outfit is my new favorite.  It’s especially perfect right now because the high-low style of the sweater hides the high-high number on the scale since I pretty much dieted on Christmas cookies for two weeks straight.  I love how it masks imperfections, has great slitted cuffs and is super comfy and warm  I paired it with some ankle booties and a red lip as my only accessory.

Pear Shaped Pointer: There’s an ongoing struggle with all women I know right now and that is with where to put your hem when you wear skinny jeans and ankle boots.  Cardinal rule? Always tuck them in.  If you are lucky with some skinny calves, go for cut cuff and some fun socks peeking out.  Or, even better, make sure you pants hit at the top of your booties.  Otherwise, opt for a tuck in.  It always looks better.

sweater: aritzia (In stores but not online anymore. Similar high-low style here.) // jeans: loft // booties: dolce vita // lipstick: revlon just bitten kissable balm stain in smitten

    That sweater looks cozy and comfy! And I think I like your idea of cuffing jeans and letting sock show between the boots and the jeans–I haven’t tried it before, but I think that would be cute!
