OOTW: Fuzzy Pink Sweater Weather

Sweater weather is already on us.
Heck, it's been on us, over us, smothering us with the early darkness of the winterish months and icy winds forcing us to run for the coziness of home around 5PM. In short, it's mothertrucking cold.
Nothing makes sweaters seem more cozy than fuzziness. Fuzzy sweaters have a certain charm to them. It's like they're saying, "hey, I'm here, I'm approachable, I'm tactile, touch me". It certainly makes the sweater look warmer as well although that may be purely psychologically driven as extra bits of wispy fluff aren't the warmest of materials. 
This fuzzy pink sweater drew me in because I just wanted to bury my head it in until winter was over, but instead, I put my adult-hat on and coordinated it with some grey jeans for a fall-meets-winter transitional look. Perfect for those casual holiday dinner with friends, or snuggling in at home while toasting your toes.

I am loving winter pastels right now, and before I shift into the silver/whites/pastel blues/ivories, I thought I'd mix up a little of the pale pinks and soft greys first.
 Instead of going with another pale colored purse, I thought I'd jazz it up with my maroon Goyard to avoid fading into the all-pastel trap.
 Mermaid waves on par for the course (it's a phase).
 Trusty Perseus by my side.
 Ankle boots to tuck in my skinny jeans. I just realized that I hate all my skinny jeans with zippers on the ankles. They are absolutely worthless. 1) No one looks down at your ankles anyway for your zipper detail, 2) they're impossible to stuff into boots of any sort, and 3) they scratch away at your skin until you look like a crackhead subtly trying to dance the zippers away from the skin contact point. But 50% of my skinny jeans have zippers. WHY!?

Have a cozy Monday!
