Holiday Off-Duty

The holidays are a time of getting together, memory making and celebration. The Christmas season is among one of my favourite times of the year. The lights, the treats, and the cozy clothing – all very important details when December begins! When the snow starts to fall, it’s time to pull out the over-sized sweaters and comfortable jeans!

I am in my last week of school for 2017! I can’t believe how quickly this degree has flown by. This is one of the busiest times of the year – not only because of all of the holiday shopping, baking and gift wrapping there is to do. It is also my birthday month, as well as (for this year, at least) time to be applying to jobs. Shortly, I will be a certified elementary school teacher…four months to be exact.

With all of the crazy-ness that December brings, I like to have my go-to casual looks. I like to look my best at all times, but comfort is my number one – especially when that white blanket covers the ground. An ideal characteristic of a cozy outfit is to feel like you are still in your PJ’s – even when you leave the house! Which brings me to this fabulous off-duty look I put together last week…

I love over-sized things. An over-sized sweater is a comfort-obsessed women’s gift to tackling her daily routine. I stumbled across this perfect piece online at Pink Blush. I love this boutique – especially for comfy wear. This perfect soft knit is my key to keeping it comfortable when I’m sitting in class, or even doing school work at home.

To keep the cozy going, I paired the soft knit with my favourite pair of boyfriend jeans. The  distressing adds a bit of texture to the look, and overall gives the look a cute and casual vibe. Boyfriend jeans are the most comfortable jeans ever – they are a bit slouchy, but they feel like sweatpants. I topped the look off with a cream knit beanie – mainly because I was on second day hair, but also because it was a bit chilly that day.

A look like this is extremely simple to put together. I sport this look consistently by changing out the jeans for leggings, or the soft knit with a cable knit sweater. Either way, the cozy factor wins every time. You really can’t go wrong this holiday season, with this off-duty look.

What’s your go-to cozy look this season?
