Thanksgiving Oversized Sweater Club + $400 Nordstrom Giveaway

November 16, 2017

H&M Oversized Sweater

Ah Thanksgiving, one of my favorite time of the year. Mostly because it’s one of the times where its socially acceptable to stuff yourself senseless. This is definitely not a time to be donning a tight skirt or a bodycon dress. Of course, you can always go for the sweatpants route, but just in case you want to look a little more put together without the threat of a tight waistband, I got the solution for you: oversized sweater. It’s super versatile as you can style it with tights, leggings, jeans, or even comfy pants. And if at some point of the night you have to loosen your belt (or maybe even undo that top button) no one would be the wiser LOL.

Read on to see more of this outfit and some of my favorite oversized sweater picks. And of course, as the title suggest there will be a Nordstrom gift card giveaway at the end of this blog.
