When I think of the holidays I think of bundling up with hot chocolate in comfy clothes and a cozy blanket. And man, oh, man, does this sweater fit the bill! Usually when I try sweaters like these they're heavy, but this one feels lighter which means I'll actually wear it come Christmas time.
I'll probably pair it with leggings, which I'm shocking myself for saying. I'm not gonna lie...I've been very, very, very resistant to leggings unless they are under dresses. With tunics and longer tops, I've held a hard line because I've seen them go badly far too often. White Plum has been sending me leggings for YEARS, and I've been so resistant that I've just been giving them away to friends who love leggings. (Umm, sorry, White Plum!)
HOWEVER, this year something was different (uhh probably that my body is softer these days, haha!) and I was starting to understand the appeal of leggings. And then (and this is the honest complete truth--not just because I'm partnering with WP today) I read White Plum's leggings guide months ago that gave a bunch of tips on how to wear leggings with some outfit examples and was like, "Whoa k, I think I could get on board." When WP sent me another pair of leggings a couple of months ago I decided to actually TRY them and put together an outfit with a long tunic and leggings HERE that I actually really liked! Then, a few weeks ago they sent me a pair of their "holiday leggings" which were different than their normal leggings. While White Plum carries tons of leggings--fleece lined, solid, printed, textured--that my friends have enjoyed as gifts, the "holiday leggings" were soooo soft and stretchy, and I now know exactly what I'm wearing Christmas morning. And the entire week before. And entire week after. WHAAAAAAAT? WHO AM I?
