OOTD :: of sweggings part deux

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t a food baby.

It was something else female related, and that’s about as indelicate as I’m gonna get. When I made this realization, however, I almost scrapped today’s outfit because leggings + semi-bodycon winter white sweater dress + monthly friend = potential Stay Puft Marshmallow Man action.

But I’d already taken the pics and the light was waning and I didn’t have time for photos today and I’ve gotten spoiled with the outdoor shots and didn’t want to do an impromptu classroom one with a new outfit. Plus, Audrey inspired me to just go for it. And thus, I offer for your consideration, today’s ensemble that felt better in my head than IRL.

The sweggings are the neutral palette counterpart of these babies and are just as comfy. Better, even, because there’s no sagging and bagging at knee or bum, which is odd since they’re the exact same size from the exact same place. Go figure.

The boots are another tried-and-true item from years back. They’re Khombus again, and in case you hadn’t clicked on the shopping link from last time, I’d like to take this opportunity to point out that they’re warm. And waterproof. Of course, I’ve not gone slogging through snowdrifts so can’t attest to their true waterproof-ness, but they’re good enough for puddle jumping in SoCal/NoCal.

Are you noticing how I’m skillfully avoiding talking about the sweater? I’m clearly not happy with it. Yes, I know it’s clingy. Yes, I know it makes me look large. I was hoping the black puffer vest would slim it down but I’m thinking no dice. Ah, well. In front of the mirror, it made me do the Vivian booty dance. Maybe I’ll try it again some other time. Or should I just ditch the sweater? It is several years old and I’ve really only ever kept it because it was the only winter white thingy I owned at the time…
