{outfit} Stella McCartney on a Blustery Day

This is my 7th Christmas season with this sweater and my love for it has not lessened one bit. I still wear it multiple times through the holiday season (and after too) and don't see myself stopping any time soon.

I originally posted it as a "Dream" outfit in 2011 and bought it in The Outnet's clearance sale in 2013 for $229 (regular $1075, yowza!) Even if I only wore it twice a year, that still brings the cost per wear down to about $16, pretty good! But I'm sure I've worn it more than 14 times over these past 7 years. 

It's hard to style in different ways so I don't post it on the blog too often, but for this look I wore it with some studded leggings and over the knee boots. Hidden under my boots are some red and green striped socks that have kitties with Christmas lights on them. The perfect cozy weekend look even if it was a blustery day.

  1. It is such a great knit and it's impressive you've had it so long - even if you don't wear it a lot through the year you are getting a lot of wear out of this! :)

    I'll be taking a few days away from the blog over Christmas so wanted to wish you a merry Christmas :)

  2. It's funny how most people put together outfits in basically one way and then keep wearing them on rotation, where we feel embarrassed if we are wearing basically the same outfit twice a year :)

  3. It's lasted and looks impeccable! You've got a piece that can live with you many many more holidays and always look chic.
