Change room diaries

 The images below were captured in the change rooms of French Connection
French Connection always has great pieces that you can count on.  I really loved the first sweater because of the glitter in the threads.  Not only is this a great casual sweater that fits loosely yet flattering with a flared sleeve, but the glitter makes it a perfect festive sweater to have for the holiday season.  The second sweater is amazing for it's versatility.  With a set of nylons and the right boot this is a great sweater dress to own this season.  However, if you hate being cold like myself and refuse to bare your legs that much then wearing it as a sweater with jeans or leggings is a great alternative!

Oh I'm such a sucker for jackets!  I have way too many, except cold weather flat out sucks especially when it comes to trying to look good while being bundled up.  That being said I figure it only makes sense to have a lot of options for jackets in fall/winter, right?  Clearly this jacket had me running for it because of it's colour.  I love a lot of colours and I even get super excited about some as they come along but I think oxblood actually has me obsessed - pretty strange since I've hated red my whole life until recently.  Anyway, aside from it being the perfect colour for fall it really does fit incredibly.  I love the cape-like style of it and I found the shape very flattering.  The jacket had a great over sized hood as well as draw-strings along the bottom to tighten it up for those really chilly days.

As you can see by this post I was recently on a major hunt for sweaters to keep me warm this season.  I was shocked at how many sweaters I tried on during my fall shopping before I settled on any!  Apparently finding the perfect knit can be a difficult task.  My shopping for the most part is usually planned.  I know what it is I'm looking for based on closet needs or specific pieces to complete looks I have in my head and of course I usually end up with a few extra things along the way that I just can't resist.  Anyway, as much as I just needed sweaters period because I realized I actually down really own any, I pictured myself living in a particular look over winter.  This outfit consists of faux-leather leggings and an over sized chunky knit.  The reason why most sweaters weren't working was because they didn't have the length I wanted.  Yes I love my cropped tops but that was seriously the majority of what I saw while shopping for sweaters.  Finally, I stumbled into H&M and found an armful of options to go through and I am pleased to say you can look forward to an outfit post soon of the look I was describing!
