Crossback Sweater

This fun and edgy combination of a crossback sweater with a pair of faux leather leggings will surely give you an inspiration for your cold weather outfit - fall and winter. Click on the image to learn more.

I love adding fun pieces to my closet like this yellow crossback sweater that I recently got from Express. I like how chunky and flowy it is making it easy to move around into; which is also ideal for layering. I especially adore the fun and edgy combination of this crossback sweater paired with my faux leather leggings which has been my favorite leggings so far.

Since this crossback sweater doesn’t have any prints on it, I can already see myself having fun pairing it with some of my printed leggings, like the plaid ones, or the aztec-printed ones, or even the polka-dotted ones, for an absolutely fun look.

And, can I just say how much I love my hair is in these photos? You’re probably already used to me always having my hair up in a ponytail or in a bun which I’ve been doing for the past few years. But I’ve recently discovered a new hair straightening tool, the Jade Hair Straightening Brush from Irresistible Me, which allowed me to achieve this beautifully straightened hair in such a short time. Check out my post about it here if you haven’t yet and you just might find yourself longing for it.
