A Thousand Lies Have Made Me Colder

IMG_6748xx

Chris found this adorable sweater during our recent trip to Urban Outfitters, heavily discounted from $89 to $19.99 and another 30% off because (I guess) they really wanted to get rid of it. Well, fine by me ;)

(UO sweater / Winners jeans / H&M beanie / Marc by Marc Jacobs purse (get it here) / Foxy Originals c/o bracelet & ring (get them here & here) / ALDO boots)


It's an XS men sweater and it fits a little tight on Chris, so he was debating whether or not he should still get it.  While he's trying to make a decision, I tried it on just for fun and ended up liking it (very much!). I told him that it could be a sweater that both of us could wear alternately. He was "convinced" with the idea and we chipped in to purchase the sweater.

At the back of my mind I knew... that it would eventually become MY sweater ;)

OMG, I love that sweater! What a bargain, too! I kinda want to copy this look. I could just replace the sweater with my wolf one! Would that be weird? ;)

Angie said...

that sweater is adorable! i just love your last pic with the chess graffiti and your grungey beanie juxtaposed against dainty jewelry. what a steal of a UO sweater - they're always so pricey but adorable!

Love the graffiti in these photos! You mixed the gold and silvery jewelry quite well. The BF never lets me borrow any of his clothes because he's afraid he'll never get it back, haha.

Haha, that worked out in your favour, didn't it? The dogs on that sweater make me smile... can't believe you got it for such a great deal!

Such a cute sweater and so on trend! I can't imagine a man wearing a sweater with cute golden retrievers on it... I think it suits you much better ;) P.S. What happened to your hand/wrist?! Hope you're ok!

nice outfit!

Judy said...

Great find! Hahaha I definitely convince my boyfriend he "needs" something if it's an item I'd wear myself. Especially with flannels.

I love your jeans too!

Love your jumper! Shame I never find any good deals like that in my local UO! :(

Tabitha said...

ah I'm in love with this sweater - can't believe it's a mens. Doesn't seem too masculine, but I love it!

♥ Natalie said...

Really, really nice (: Casual but cute!!

Love that animal sweater. It looks so cute on you and I bet it would look so great on a guy also.

Marie a la Mode said...

What a cute sweater Kristy! And a bonus: you got it on sale! Love how you accessorized your outfit, too.

Hi I'm Kristy and I'm freaking adorable and have impeccable style, and I have injured my wrist somehow? YES. I noticed. I hope you're taking good care of yourself out there!

Love the colour of your jeans and that sweater (obviously), UO has some good things, but honestly so overpriced for the lack of quality. That sweater is a serious steal, plus it looks like it's actually of decent quality!

Have a great week Kristy, miss you oodles! xo

Cute sweater. Love your boots

Kristy said...

@Jess ♡
I know exactly what you meant with UO lacking in the quality dept. A lot of their stuff are like paper-thin! But thank goodness this sweater was from one of their designer collab collections, so it's pretty thick and well-made :)

Kristy said...

@Jen I wish they were pugs, not golden retrievers though! :p My left wrist has been hurting for the past few weeks. Nothing serious, but I just have to wear the brace until I don't feel the pain anymore :)

Kristy said...

@Santina I REMEMBER THAT WOLF SWEATER! Yes yes, you should do that! And it wouldn't be weird at all. Twinsies! :p

brynn said...

Such a great casual look. I'm so happy to have found your blog, fellow Torontonian!

i should pop into uo sometime! i don't usually remember the store even exists for some reason. (..probably because theyre often not in malls)

i have been meaning to do a makeup tutorial on my smokey eye for a while but have yet to get to it. i will try but i think it's a look you can easily find on youtube! it's a very basic smokey eye with shades of brown. i'll attempt it sometime eventually!

great look<3

This makes me want to buy more things from the mens section (as if I already did carve that already), this brings the idea to fruition! I also just love those blue jeans, pretty lady!
