Christmas Sweater


Hello Everyone!

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a joyous holiday. Mine was quite relaxing and refreshing.

I know I am a bit late in showing a Christmas sweater. But the past two weeks have been busy with the holidays, my illness, and trying to get back on schedule. I’m glad everything is over and I can start all over again with a new year. And that means a new me, too.

About two weeks ago we had some warm weather (I know that’s odd to talk about with everyone dealing with freezing temperatures right now) and we were approaching the Christmas holidays. That day I was lucky enough to drive 45 minutes to NJ Pine Barrens area. I wore this Christmas sweater, yes it is a Christmas sweater, well that what it was advertised as even though it doesn’t look like a Christmas sweater. But I love it!!

It is a good, thick, chunky sweater that you can wear all season long. Perfect for those cold winter days we’ve seem to be having this year. It’s a baggy sweater but not too baggy that it cuts off my figure. I like things that fit well on me, even though recently I tend to go for things that are baggier on me. The sleeves are belled, which I wasn’t aware of when I bought it but I loved that it is hard to tell the bell shape.

I love that it is a unique piece of clothing and it so hard to find anything similar to it. The colors and the pattern is something that you do not see that often on a sweater let alone offered in plus size clothing. No wonder why this sweater sold out as quickly as it did.  It’s definitely a piece I am going to treasure for a while.

Well, I hope all of you enjoy your new year! Hope you all achieve your resolutions this 2018. I have so many ideas to work on next couple of months for the blog.  Take care all of you!

Love You All,

Valerie (JG)

Fact: Did you know that the name “Pine Barrens” refers to areas sandy, acidic, poor-nutrient soil that makes the land hard to inhabit. Very few plant life can grow in the Pine Barrens.

  2. I think that sweater has a sweet design and it looks great for being a baggier fit.

    I prefer more fitted outfits, but that’s just my style. For being “baggy” this sweater is pretty awesome!

    Love the photos and hope you keep slaying in 2018.
