Candy Land: The Fashion Girl Way to Style All Your Sweaters

Hey Mer-babes! At the end of the day we are just all trying to reach fashion it-girl status am I right?  While we may not all be the next Gigi, or Alexa, or Chiara, we can dress like them.  I am all for being yourself and rocking you own style, I mean DUH thats literally why I started Mermaid Waves, but sometimes its fun to follow in the footsteps of your favorite leading lady.  For example, I was at work yesterday and a girl came in dressed sooo cute, like best outfit I've seen in a hot second.  She was rocking a beret and it totally inspired me to throw on a beret (shop similar) with my outfit today!  And TBH she was pretty rude, I knew I could rock a beret and be nice at the same time, berets and being polite are not mutually exclusive people.  That's the best part about taking inspiration from other people, you can make it your own by simply putting a smile on your face.  

I am obsessed with the oversized sweaters paired with culottes look that I have been seeing all over Instagram lately so I had to try it out for myself.  It was as successful in real life as it is on Instagram. This Gap sweater (shop here) is the perfect piece to rock this winter with literally everything, its beyond soft and pairs perfectly with any piece from culottes to jeans.  With my sweater I paired blush culottes (shop similar) that I originally wore as part of a two-piece set.  I love this blush tone, and I love that I am bringing it into winter with me.  Pastel tones can be made completely winter appropriate when paired with the right pieces, like an oversized sweater.  

I pulled this look together with a pair of glitter heels (shop similar).  These shoes perfectly tied together all the colors in this look.  This look is perfect for any event this holiday season.  What kinds of look do you want to see more of this season? Let me know below in the comments!
