Outfit Post: Sweater Weather * TOMS for Target

Dec 4, 2014

If you are a human being, I’m guessing you’re like me in that whenever you go into Target to get ONE THING (toothpaste, paper towels, deodorant are usually the bait for me), you end up leaving with more than what you bargained for and way less money in your wallet. It’s a problem … with my willpower.

Most of the time I leave with the odd mix of guilt and delight but last time I popped in, I was able to take the guilty feeling entirely off the table. See I got to stop in and pick out a favorite from the TOMSforTarget collection to make my own. But inevitably, I ended up picking up way more than just one thing, going a little head over heels for all the gift goodies. A couple of the glass water bottles, one of the adorable leather pouches and one of the candles are all getting wrapped up and placed under the tree. I didn’t feel even a smidge bad for the splurge though since for every item purchased, Target will donate a blanket  through the American or Canadian Red Cross, or one week of meals through Feeding America or Food Banks Canada. The aim of the collaboration is to give more than 11 million meals, blankets, and shoes to those underserved.

My pick was this cozy sweater which may be changing my current love/hate relationship with sweaters. Pinterest and the countless number of gals that wear them so well make me endlessly wish I could make it work. But then I realize that I have broad shoulders and a long torso, both killers when it comes to pulling off the slouchy sweater look. Instead, I usually opt for jackets, tees with vests, cardigans or super light-weight, oversized sweaters. This sweater may make me turn the corner though. Granted I sized majorly up but it’s the perfect mix of slouchy yet fitted in the right spots. I think I can finally embrace sweater weather.

    LOVE that sweater!! I went to a couple of Targets on the hunt for the sweater and the poncho, but didn’t have any luck.

    It’s such a great collab and I love that you can feel good about these sorts of impulse buys!
