5 Reasons Why I'm Living in Oversized Sweaters | InspirationIndulgence.com5 Reasons Why I'm Living in Oversized Sweaters |

Happy Saturday friends! Despite the weird 75 degree-day we had a few days ago, it’s been nothing but gorgeous, crisp fall days around Wisconsin. One of my favorite trends is the oversized sweater. There is nothing better than lounging around the house feeling all warm and snuggly with a coffee in hand!

In particular, I’m loving this cozy chocolate sweater from my friends at and I could not be more excited. This sweater is perfect because it goes well with any occasion; so far I’ve worn it at home for lounging, to class, and to my internship site. I love supporting brands like VIPme, a platform that empowers women to value individual perspective, to highlight self-awareness and to cherish the inner “me”. I’m all about empowering women, increasing confidence levels, and spreading encouragement, friends. 

I’m excited to share with you 5 reasons why I’m currently LIVING in oversized sweaters like this one.

5 Reasons Why I'm Living in Oversized Sweaters |

1.) They keep me warm and cozy

For some reason, I’m always cold (seriously, I sleep in sweats and have about 50 blankets piled on top of me) so I’m always in some type of sweater or sweatshirt. Sweaters like this keep me warm- and are cute, too!

2.) They are perfect for all occasions

Like I mentioned above, I’ve worn this sweater to my professional internship, to class, and around my home. At my internship, I don’t have to worry if I’m dressing inappropriate or revealing. Pairing it with dress pants, this sweater still pulls off the professional look, while feeling warm and home-y at the same time.

3.) They are versatile 

There are so many ways to wear an oversized sweater. As you can see in this post, I paired this chocolate sweater with my ripped boyfriend jeans. Other ways to oversized sweaters include with leggings, dress pants, skinny jeans, and the list goes on!

4.) I look cute

Okay, not going to lie. This sweater makes me look cute. LOL!!!! Hey, I’m just saying what my fiancé told me!!! But for real, I think anyone looks adorable in cozy sweaters.

5.) They celebrate the season

Don’t you just love wearing items that celebrate the season? Wearing this sweater just makes me excited that it’s fall, and I’m happy that it’s no longer summer anymore! Appreciating the little things in life helps me practice gratitude, which I blogged about on Monday.
