Big Sweaters & Burberry

Sweater: Daisy Fuentes via Kohl's, $11 // Belt: Thrifted, $1 // Jacket: Burberry, thrifted, $20 // Jeans: Urban Outfitters, used gift certificate // Shoes: Thrifted, $4

Friday was a beautiful but brisk spring day. I wanted to wear something light and a fresh but also warm, so it was the perfect opportunity to take my new jacket for a spin. I don't care much about designers and labels, but because Burberry is known for its classic, timeless styles and superior quality, I was excited to find this sweet little jacket. Clearly the thrift store knew the significance of the brand, but $20 is still a steal considering.

As for the rest of the outfit, I'm loving big knits, and I finally found an oversize sweater that meets my needs: neutral color, soft material, slim cut, generous length. I didn't realize until looking at these pictures that the jeans and sweater are the same color, but I can dig the monochromatic look.

Happy Monday!

Love the outfit, but I think i would have liked it more with a different color pant... to washed out, methinks.

The Burberry coat is delightful!
