Happy Monday, friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine was super productive. I shot a ton of fun content coming soon to you guys, had an amazing double date catch up with my girl, Vanessa and celebrated my father in-laws birthday while also making church on Sunday and getting a makeup tutorial up for you guys! Don’t you just love weekends like that? Productive and social, but now I’m super exhausted.
In case you missed it, I posted my everyday makeup routine on my Instagram stories. You can still catch the entire video series by clicking the ‘beauty’ highlight on my profile page. I had a lot of amazing feedback from you guys and I am so excited to continue to share all my beauty tricks and routines with you. Let me know if there is a specific look you are interested in seeing!
Today’s look isn’t one I shot specifically for Valentine’s Day, but the red pom pom sweater could definitely be worn for this holiday. This is one of the coziest sweaters I’ve every worn. It is super bulky and oversized (one size fits all – I generally like to say if fits all small to large sizes), but I loved it paired with skinny jeans or my favorite pair of boyfriend denim. I wear these jeans all the time you guys, they’ve become my new favorite pair. They’re loose fitted like boyfriend jeans should be, but they’re the first pair I’ve found that doesn’t feel like ‘mom’ jeans if you know what I mean.
I received some comments regarding this sweater because it is from a boutique called Goodnight Macaroon. Many of you mentioned having issues in ordering from them or delays in receiving items. I will say that their items do ship from Hong Kong and have to go through customs to be delivered to the United States, so you should definitely expect delays in receiving your order, that’s simply they’re system. However, I’ve been told that this sweater is an affordable dupe of another brand, Mumushandmade. If you feel more comfortable ordering from them then you should do that, but their items are handmade and they’re much more expensive.
Unfortunately, that’s just the tradeoff for getting this sweater – more expensive or longer timelines. I personally chose to go the Goodnight Macaroon route and I’ve been happy with my order as I received it about 2 weeks after I ordered it. It’s one of my favorite sweaters to lounge around in around the house. I like to be transparent with you guys when it comes to these types of situations so you can make the decision that works best for you. You are always my top interest and I want to disclose this type of information to you. I.e. I hope you realize how important you are to me! Xoxo.
