My End of Year Look: Off-the-shoulder Sweater


Off the shoulder sweater C/O SheIn / Rag & Bone distressed jeans / Tory Burch bag / Similar wedge booties


And just like that Christmas has come and gone, I hope you all enjoyed this holiday season and are ready to ring in the New Year.  I seriously cannot believe it’s almost 2017, this year felt like it ended even before it began and maybe that’s a good thing with all of the negativity and atrocities that seemed to define 2016.  I am looking forward to starting the new year off on a fresh note, I will be changing my position at work and will now be working in the community with families as opposed to working with children in foster care so I’m going to embrace this change with open arms.  I was initially feeling some trepidation around this, however, I am a firm believer in everything happening for a reason so I know this was meant to be at this point in my life.

Anywho enough serious talk…this week in Canada we celebrate Boxing week (Boxing Day is on the 26th) so there are massive sales everywhere and the stores are filled with shoppers eager to get a great deal.  I for one avoid stores this week like the plague as I don’t like the crowds and chaos of shopping under pressure.  So I brought a bit of Boxing week to the blog with this cute selection of super affordable sweaters.

I think it’s rather fitting for my end of the year look to consist of my most prized fashion piece: the sweater. This off-the-shoulder sweater is a bit more fancy and although it’s sold out (boo & sorry) I found these similar chic options below all of which are under $30:


1.Dark grey high-low sweater / 2. Multicolour marled sweater / 3. Burgundy cable-knit sweater / 4. Textured cold-shoulder /5. Lantern sleeve fuzzy sweater / 6. Open-shoulder / 7. Olive green asymmetric / 8. Eyelet sweater / 9. Ribbed off the shoulder sweater / 10. Grey folder sweater

I want to thank you all for supporting me another year here on the blog, I am so grateful to all of my regular readers and fellow bloggers for sticking by and continuing to support me.   I’m making one of my goals for the blog this year to be more active on social media particularly Facebook, I will be sharing more helpful fashion and lifestyle based articles for your reading pleasure rather than it just being an outlet for my latest posts.  Since I regularly surf the net these articles will be anything from simple recipes, to fashion-tips, life-hacks, how to manage being a multi-tasking parent and so forth.  My main focus here on the blog is to add some fun and fashion inspritation to your day especially for all of you hard working and fashionable mama bears.  I also want to make sure I am featuring affordable fashion and showing how looking chic and on trend doesn’t mean having to break the bank.  Hence I’ll be continuing my Steals Under posts to make budget-friendly shopping online a bit easier for you.  Don’t be shy to drop me a line here if you have any questions, ideas or just want to say hi.

May you all have a year ahead filled with health, happiness and cute & comfy outfits outfits of course:-)

Happy 2017 to all of my fellow “cute comfies”!

    I am loving off the shoulder sweaters because the thick material and long sleeves means I don’t completely freeze! This one is fabulous on you!
