When I was in college, I acquired an impressive (and sadly misguided) collection of oversized (okay, huge) hoodies. In the following years, this did not serve me well, as most held sentimental value but were also way too ugly to wear after graduating. If I had only known then what we all know now — that soft sweaters serve the same purpose but look slouchy instead of shlumpy.

Anyway, American Living asked me and a few other bloggers to style some pieces, and I was happy to see this everyday off-the-shoulder sweater in the mix. It’s like old times. But better.

Take a look at the other bloggers’ looks too, if you’re curious. We’re all posting on various days this week.

    I’m with on the oversized hoodies. I actually wore one that was triple XL, if I remember correctly. It was actually given to me by a now pro basketball player, but since he was just a college player back then, that’s no excuse! I finally ditched it during a move after I tried it on and realized it was more like a tent dress. Anyhow, I love anything roomy and cozy and I can’t wait to wear chunky knits!

    I love the mix of proportions, and those boots are gorgeous! Looking lovely as usual, Natalie!

    I just LOVE the sweater!! I saw in in another look of yours, “uniform”, and have been dying to find one like it!
    Is there somewhere where I could go directly to find one like it?
