AJ Wears :: A Big Sweater

Last season, I rented this sweater from Rent The Runway and fell in LOVE with it. The oversized sleeves. The big, chunky knit. The way it was just long enough to wear with leggings without swallowing me whole. Unfortunately for me, I couldn't find it anywhere. I considered just never sending it back and seeing if they noticed. I scoured the internet for weeks after trying to find it. I even emailed Revolve to see if they could track one down for me from the designer.

And then a magical little sale alert popped into my inbox and told me Urban Outfitters had one in my size - and it was on sale. Twelve seconds later, I had an email confirming my order and I was pleased as punch.

Thanks to a mild winter, I didn't get to wear my beloved big sweater too much, and I suspect this might be the last time I'm in a sweater until next Fall, since it's going to be 80 degrees this week. I'm listening to George Washington sing "One Last Time" as I write this.

What? I'm a little dramatic.

AJ Wears :: The Cutest Slides Ever

You know when you walk into a store and just connect with something? I was at North Park in Dallas last week with my friend Candice, who had a gift card she wanted to spend at Michael Kors. I may have never gone in that store otherwise, which is a crying shame because I would have never found these shoes.

I'm fully on board for the slides trend. They don't rub your heels (like basically every other pair of flats I own), they're super comfy, and something about them just feels fresh. I may have already worn these almost every day since I bought them.

Bonus: Check out the Arthur-worthy fist I'm throwing up in the last photo.

Sweater, gift (maybe from Venus? Get the look using a Skinny Shirt, or shop similar here).

AJ Wears...Sweater

The weather in Arkansas is starting to get "fall-like," as my morning meteorologist puts it. Not fall weather entirely, because that would be unheard of in the south. Just "fall-LIKE" weather, that is sometimes like fall and sometimes sweater appropriate.

So today, look at my weird sweater. It's got a lot of potential but swallows me a little. Clearly, my SheIn picks this month were a little all over the place (see: junk food shirt coming tomorrow), but I like to take risks when someone is sending me a piece to review and choose something I wouldn't normally try. I will say that the sweater is pretty well-made and has a really interesting shape to it, so I may try to alter it to fit my style a little better.

Jeans, Hudson (exact).
Booties, JustFab (might upgrade these to real suede this season).
Bag, c/o JustFab (similar).
