Oversized Sweater and Leopard Pants (Featuring SWELL Checker Open Shoulder Sweater)

February 09, 2014

Parts of the U.S. have been experiencing one of the wettest and most unforgiving winters in recent memory, marked by unbroken chains of winter storms that dumped a punishing amount of snow and ice on the ground. I mostly live in boots (dressy ones like these Ralph Lauren heeled boots (worn here) and functional ones like my Hunter tall boots (last worn here)) but allow myself one or two impractical "heel" days a week.
J. Crew Bow Coat (from 2012) | c/o SWELL Checker Open Shoulder Sweater | Ann Taylor Maven Leopard Jacquard Ankle Pants | Forever 21 Classic Oversized Faux Leather Clutch | J. Crew Cashmere-lined Leather Gloves (this year's version here) | Zara Leather High Heel Court Shoe (similar)
A few words about SWELL, an OC-based e-tailer I plan to discuss in greater detail in a future post (will talk more specifically about these styles: 1/2/3). On the topic of sizing, items from the Private collection run true to size (the majority run S-L) but most styles are oversized in design, consistent with the laid back aesthetic of the brand, so consider sizing down for a more fitted look.

The team at SWELL gave me a coupon to share in case you decide to place an order. FF20 will take 20% off full-priced purchases.
Happy Sunday, all!

  1. I love the cut outs in that sweater! And the coat is such a rich color, beautiful :)

    1. The coat is one of my favorites. Definitely something I hope J. Crew brings back in more colors! :)

  2. those pants are so ill-fitting on you, especially in the knees

    1. I tend to agree; especially in these pictures. I think my bottom half is kind of unpredictable sometimes...there are days when these pants fit better than others and I can only really blame myself. :)

  3. Very ill-fitting pants.

    1. The more I look at them, the more I agree with you. Will take these with me on my next trip to the tailor's. Thanks for the feedback. :)

  4. All coat is choice full for me. Definitely something I hope J. Crew brings back in more colors!

  5. I like the rock-chic aesthetic with the prim and proper coat :-)
