Last night as we went to bed, I looked at the weather forecast one last time. I love snow, so I was pretty pumped to see that we were still supposed to get between 4″-5″ inches with another 1″-2″ the next day. I’m just like a kid when it comes to snow, so I jumped out of bed and ran to the window to see how much snow had already accumulated.
The back patio was covered enough that I couldn’t see any bricks, but there wasn’t any accumulation. I was a little disappointed, but I figured that the snow was just taking its time and would be here as the day went on. As a kid, there was nothing worse than a huge snowfall prediction that didn’t materialize. I would have visions of school closings, snowmen, riding a sled down the hill, and lots of hot chocolate. I always felt let down and cheated when the snow didn’t come. It looks like I’ve not changed that much since I was young, I still feel cheated, but at least I can have hot chocolate anytime that I want. Lol!
When I did a survey a couple of weeks ago, affordable fashions were something that many people asked for me to continue showing. So, at least one day a week, I’ll have a post that consists of affordable fashions. Today, I’m showing you a casual style that you can wear at home or around town. Even though I’m wearing these items together, that doesn’t mean that this is the best way they should be worn. This is like a try-on haul, not a styling session.
The first item I’m showing you is this cozy leopard print crew-neck sweater. This sweater is very soft and comfortable, and it is very thick, especially for the price point. I love how the neckline, hem, and cuffs are a solid color, which contrasts nicely against the animal print. This sweater is a tad oversized, but I wish that it was even more relaxed. The medium that I’m wearing fits fine, but I would love to try a large one and see if it would give me the look I’m after.
I didn’t order any “affordable” jewelry for this post, but I think that I’ve worn my statement hoop earrings so much that I’ve gotten my money’s worth from them. This would be an example of how price isn’t a factor when it comes to being affordable. If you don’t pay much for something and never wear it, then that item was not affordable; it was a waste.
The multi-strand necklace that I’m wearing is two of the three strands of the Davis necklace. I like this necklace since you can remove the chains to create the look you want. I left the chains, but I took off the strand that had the colored stone.
These ultra-cozy high-performance leggings are so comfortable. They have a plush, fleece interior making them soft and cozy against your skin. And, they feature Go-Dry moisture-wicking technology that keeps you dry & comfortable. I love black leggings, and I own several in this color, but these also come in five other colors. I’m wearing a size large because I don’t like my leggings to fit too tightly.
These leopard print duck boots are super cute and very soft and warm. However, usually, I probably wouldn’t wear them with the leopard sweater. Instead, I would wear them with one of the sweaters below. I think that the boots are too cute to share the spotlight, so I would wear a solid sweater with them instead of a print.
Here is a close-up of the duck boots so you can see the print better. These boots are temperature rated -5F, have a memory foam insole, and are skid resistant.
Plus, look at that soft and cozy lining! These genuinely are warm and cozy, but I’m not going to test them out in -5 weather. I’ll be keeping my butt inside during that kind of weather. I’m wearing my usual size 9, and they fit great with enough room for a heavier sock.
I wanted to thank all of you for being so patient with me last week. I’m feeling much better now, and I finally put on makeup. And, I was smarts enough to take a lot of photos of several different outfits. I will try and do better about having a post of two ahead for times like those.
It sure is nice to SEE all of you today, and I hope you liked this affordable fashion post. Let me know if this is something you could see yourself wearing.
