After a month’s worth of holiday-ready outfits that included lots of red and green, trendy velvet, and added sparkle, an all-black look was a much needed change. This convertible sweater is under $70 and I have already worn it so many different ways this winter.  Here, I styled it super casually for a walk through the desert.  Since you are able to wear it as a cowl-neck or off-the-shoulder, it is the perfect item to pack for a trip where the temperature will vary from day to day.  I paired it with my favorite pair of leggings and these new boots that Santa left under the tree.  I’m sure you’ve heard it before if you know anyone else who has gotten these leggings, but it’s true: they are worth every penny.  Hands-down the most flattering (and comfortable) fit.  I saw some reviews that said to size up, but I disagree, I find that they run very true to size.  They kind of conform to your body and I think that is exactly what makes them so amazing.
