If you’ve seen the “FeLiNa” of Breaking Bad, then you’d know why this sweater reminds me of the wintry opening scene when Walter White finally leaves his lonely winter wonderland in the dark forest.
I got this sweater for a major steal at just $5, and I’ve been trying to figure out a way to wear it ever since. I’ve always been a little bit afraid of the shorts and tights combo, but I really needed a some edginess to help counter the Grampa-ish Walter White feel of the cardi, so I decided to brave the cold and chance it. Needless to say, the outfit was a huge hit and in all honesty I wasn’t too cold. But, that wasn’t without the help of a few warm-weather essentials!
The beanie I’m wearing, though delicate looking, really went a long way in keeping me cozy. This particular one is hand-knit, so it’s soft and has the perfect amount of slouch, making it the perfect chic go-to in the colder months.
Fall and winter usually signal the start of longer sleeves and higher necklines when it comes to clothing—that’s why I seize the opportunity to show off some sleek statement rings, the most underrated piece of jewelry to date (except on wedding days, natch). The ring I’m wearing is a new personal favorite from mine, made by ReVetro. It’s handcrafted and repurposed from an old Coca-Cola bottle. The smokey, frosty glass perfectly compliments the evergreens on my cardigan perfectly!
