Chunky Sweaters and Morning Coffee

It’s still SO hot in LA, but I wake up early (around 5:30am) every morning, just so I can put on a sweater and enjoy my coffee while sitting outside in the fresh brisk air. Even though, it isn’t sweater weather quite yet here in SoCal, it is cooler in most places around the country and will start to get chillier as the days go on so I thought I would share one of my favorite chunky sweaters. Let me start by saying that all chunky sweaters are NOT created equal. Not even close. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve seen a cute chunky sweater on a 5’2″ petite blogger and thought “I LOVE that I am buying it immediately!” Only to get it and realize I look like I instantly gained 10 lbs when I put it on.. So disappointing. So when I found this sweater I was really happy with how it fit and the feel/weight of the fabric. It’s chunky enough to be called a chunky sweater, but not so much that I start to look chunky in it 😉 I’m wearing a size s/m.

I’m drinking my pumpkin spiced coffee (decaf today – I’m trying to cut back on caffeine) out of one of my fav mugs. Kevin and I have about ten A or K mugs. I guess it’s our little thing to collect mugs with our initials on them 🙂

I paired the look with this 2 in 1 bracelet. I love it because this bracelet does the layering for you – it’s basically 2 bracelets for the price of one! And I added this UH-AMAING $22 watch! Isn’t that crazy that it so inexpensive? Because it LOOKS expensive! I buy all my watches cheap because I think they can look just as good as the expensive ones and I like to have a lot of different watches to go with lots of different looks. That’s NOT happening if I buy $200+ watches – who can afford that?! I also also LOVE this $20 watch. It sells out EVERY time I post about it so hopefully it’s still in stock now (See my post about it HERE).

Happy Monday loves! Hope you have a great start to your week!

  1. I’m in a size s/m (I’ll update my post). And I’m 5’7". But I think it would work on any height! I just mention he 5’2" blogger thing because petite people look SO good is ALL chunky sweater cause they are so tiny and cute 🙂 I on the other hand, just look BIG in most chunky sweaters. Thats why I love this one 🙂

  2. I Love everything you shared in this post! Just wish that adorable sweater wasn’t sold out, but at least the great priced watch wasn’t! Thanks for being awesome and sharing your wonderful finds with us. 🙂

  3. Ali! I am obsessed with this sweater, and after checking ModCloth repeatedly for weeks, they have finally told me it’s been discontinued. Have you seen anything similar anywhere? The colors of this are just perfect!
