Oversized Sweater FTW

This oversized knitted poncho has been my serious #1 go to sweater this season. Almost anytime someone would come to visit the baby, I’d throw this on.

During holiday shopping I grabbed it on sale at Banana Republic Factory for $30. At the time, I was 34+ weeks pregnant and even at an xs, this sweater fit over the bump. Even though it runs large, I saved it for post-baby anyway. I’ve been head over heels with the burgundy/wine/blood red color since fall and I adore the chunky knit.

It’s super easy to throw a long sleeve tshirt underneath and pair with jeggings and booties for happy hour with the girls. Pair it with leggings and slippers for a cozy winter day inside. Seriously, it’s the perfect oversized sweater.


Sweater: Banana Republic Factory, $30 (similiar look)
Long Sleeve Tee: Target, $9
Jeggings: Old Navy, $20
Boots: JCPenny, $10

I headed to Hobby Lobby for black sequin […]
