Belted Sweater, Navy Stripes & Almond Delight

Last Sunday was SO COLD! We were heading out to the park with the kids, and this is what I wore under my fall jacket:
Sweater: New Look (UK), Belt & Jeans: Garage, Boots: Old Navy (mine are the 2011 version), Necklace: Joe Fresh
I've had this white sweater from New Look for 5 years now - but I hardly wore it because it comes with a woolen belt that just keeps slipping open (so annoying!). Thanks to this image on Pinterest, I was inspired to switch it for a leather belt. Success: the sweater stayed closed all day - and it looked much nicer too!
Top: H&M, Jeans: Garage, Flats: Old Navy, Bag: Balenciaga, Necklace: JoeFresh
I wore my H&M navy striped top while out running errands today, paired with with black ballet flats and my black Bal bag. I'm really drawn to navy at the moment - I picked up a navy lace dress from H&M yesterday along with some peplum tops (a first for me!). Will share pics of those in another post.
I've been wanting L'Occitane's famous Almond Milk Concentrate for a while now (I adore L'Occitane bath products - they smell so luxurious and pure). However, since the cream is so pricey, I was waiting for a really special gift with purchase. Well - I found one! I purchased it from eBeauty.ca - and received a "Best of L'Occitane Body Care" bag for free - containing a travel sized Almond Shower Oil (another item on my wishlist!), Verbena Body Lotion (love the citrus scent), Lavender Body Soap and teeny hand and foot creams (always useful) in a colorful travel bag. Am so glad I waited and got all these freebies with my purchase!

Do you like L'Occitane products? Are you drawn to Navy clothes?

  5. I love both of those looks on you. I have a similar sweater but can't get it to sit right - I'll have to try a thicker leather belt :)

    1. Thanks Franziska! You should definitely try a thicker belt - I had relegated this sweater to bathrobe status - now that I've figured out how to make it stay closed, it's back in rotation LOL!
