Charcoal Grey Sweater with Burgundy Leggings

The past couple of weeks I have been showcasing some new long sweaters I bought at JCPenney for only $6.24 each after coupon and a gift card.  I love to wear leggings in the winter, but I want my tops to cover both my backside and my front side.  I can't even begin to tell you how difficult it is to find tops long enough.  No wonder so many women are wearing "Leggings as Pants".  So when I found all these sweaters at JCP on sale for $14.99, I bought one of each!


On this day I paired my charcoal sweater with burgundy leggings.  But I also wore this sweater with black pleather leggings on another day and I really like that look much better.  Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of that look.


 I paired my new sweater with another new beanie...yes, I have a problem.  "My name is Amy, and I'm a beanieaholic".  😊  I bought so many new beanies this year!  I can't help myself.  They are so cute!  This one I picked up at Forever 21 for only $4.99.  My scarf is from a previous season.



I carried a snakeskin print silver metallic cross body bag.


My new OTK boots that I got for Christmas have turned out to be quite practical for my climate.  I was always afraid of investing in a pair because I didn't think I'd get much use out of them.  But they are wonderful for keeping my legs warm and I reach for them before any of my other boots.


I haven't gotten around to punching another hole in the back strap to tighten them, so they keep slipping down on me.  That's the only thing I don't like about them.  I did just read a tip on another blog that stated that you should look for an OTK boot that has a higher shaft because they stay up better.  That's a good tip and if I ever buy another pair I will keep that in mind.  However, I had such a hard time even finding a style I liked in a price point I liked;  plus I needed to take baby steps in the OTK boot department.  I was afraid I would be uncomfortable wearing a pair that was too high.


I went up a size in this sweater and bought a size Large because it has a drop sleeve and the medium was a tad un-comfy in the arms.  Also, if I went up a size, it was a little bit longer, which I liked.


My burgundy leggings are also from JCP.

  3. I love your beanie!! And admittance is the first step, Amy---LOL!
    I've just started getting into the habit of wearing hats in the first place, so who knows? I may end up with this same addiction!
    I love that you have red leggings---I have a print pair, but it's not my go-to pair----yet!

  4. This is a beautiful outfit, casual but stylish with your awesome OTK boots. And you're right, it is hard to find sweaters that are longer, you hit the jackpot with yours!

    1. Thanks so much! I'm getting so bored and frustrated taking pictures because with all snow and cold it's been quite the challenge.

  7. I'm soooo liking that grey and burgundy together. I feel an experiment coming on. The beanie looks cozy. I haven't worn mine yet this winter. You've tempted me.

  8. Amy, I love this outfit so much. So cozy and adorable. I am seeing so much burgundy and gray or black together. It is such a rich combination. In fact, I wear it quite often myself. Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge.
