I have never felt more like “me” than I did in this chunky red sweater outfit.
No, really, the moment that I put this outfit on, I never wanted to take it off. Red is my power color, and I feel the most confident when I wear it. Skinny jeans are always a good idea – and this particular pair of “wedgie” style Levi’s fit wonderfully. My husband gave me the gift of my dream sneakers for Christmas – white high-top Converse (I’ve been lusting after these since I was a preteen) and I can’t get enough. I’ve been wearing them with absolutely everything, so obviously this outfit was no exception.
There’s something so simple about this look, and that’s what makes it so great. You don’t need a ton of accessories, wild prints, or unique cuts to look and feel good. Sometimes you just need a classic combo of sweater + jeans + sneakers and you’re ready to take on the world.
Since everyone seemed to enjoy the idea of Friday Five posts on my blog, that’s exactly what I’m going to share today!

This pair of jeans has been on my list forever
Talk about the coziest sweater of all time.
A new pair of shoes is always a good idea.
My favorite bodysuit has a hole in it (after 4 years of wear), so I need a replacement.

I keep hearing such good things about this restaurant. Next date night, I think!
This juice place seems really cool, and I’m always down for a good smoothie bowl.
Home Items I Really Want
We need pillows for our couch. I like this one so much.
A fiddle fig plant is definitely up there on my list.
After writing this up, I’m planning on an IKEA trip – to get this table.
Articles That I Loved
My friend, Summer, wrote up this post about boosting your mood that really spoke to me.
I was seriously inspired by this post about graphic design for those who are … well … totally clueless about graphic design. 😂
The countdown to Avengers: Endgame has begun, and this article helps you figure out your Marvel movie marathon a little better.
Shows I’ve Been Watching
Younger has been my top pick lately. I started binging it on Hulu, and now I can’t stop.
I’ve been catching up on Brooklyn Nine-Nine with the hubs. We are obsessed.
This Is Us is finally back and as always, an emotional roller-coaster.
I think that Manifest is super addictive. The plot is like a combination of Heroes and Lost and it sucks you in like crazy.
