It’s Sweater Weather with Soft Surroundings & a Giveaway
Quote of the day: “The only people with whom you should try to get even are those who have helped you.” John E. Southard
I love the idea of layering up for sweater weather as the cold weather hits. Thus when Soft Surroundings reached out to us to help promote their New Year, New You campaign, I thought this would be a perfect time to see what kind of winter items they have available. They are also running a New Year’s Sale. The sale runs through January 29, so this is a fabulous opportunity to check out their selections for any new items you might need to keep the chill off.
And there’s a giveaway for $100 gift card to Soft Surroundings at the bottom of the post, as a wonderful way to start the new year.
Jodie’s (50+) Sweater Weather
I’ve been wanting to get a couple more longer tunics that I could wear with my leggings, so I was elated to find this yellow, sweatshirt material one. It even has a cute, cutout in the back, and is perfect for wearing when I’m hanging around the house during my blogging days. It’s not a heavyweight item, so in the colder days I would end up layering another shirt under it. It even comes in 3 other colors along with petite and women sizes.
I picked up these cat leggings when we visited Frisco for the Wassail days. They were on sale, and I thought they’d be so appropriate since I feature my two kitties on my Instagram Stories so much. I actually even wore them in public when we visited Cat Care Society for their Santa Paws fund raising event last month. Trust me when I say, they got a ton of likes from all of the people at the event.
For the rest of the outfit, I added in my grey booties and necklace that I was gifted from our last Soft Surroundings post. I have been pleasantly surprised at how much I wear these booties. They are truly comfortable, and seem to go with everything. Especially my white jeans.
The other item I chose is this long, sweater vest. I thought this would be such a versatile item not only for the colder sweater weather times, but also when it starts to warm up outside. Ever since we experimented with layering our vests over jackets, I’ve become more excited about the vests in my closet.
It has a faux leather buckle closure along with front pockets, which are details that really floats my boat. Depending on your sizing, it even comes in other colors.
Nancy’s (60+) Sweater Weather
Nancy chose this open shoulder top as one of her picks for our sweater weather post. It’s a lightweight top that comes in three other colors along with petite and women’s sizing also. I know many of you wouldn’t think of wearing the open shoulder shirts in the colder weather, but I wondered how it would look layered over another shirt, especially a lace one.
These Taos booties are also part of Soft Surroundings New Year sale, and they come in grey and brown. I love how the print on the back portion adds so much fun to the ankle booties.
For Nancy’s second option, she picked out this tunic. You can see on the website, that the sleeves can be folded back to showcase the same denim material that is accented on the sides. We kept the sleeves longer to show how they are wider at the end. It only comes in this black color, but it’s available in petites and women’s sizes also.
The statement necklace is also part of Soft Surrounding’s pieces, and it’s really one of those unique accessories.
Charlotte’s (70+) Sweater Weather
My mom obviously was in a pink mood when she picked out her sweaters. This Hollis tunic is available in other colors and other sizing just like most of their other pieces. I love how this one has an asymmetric slant. It’s another lightweight sweater that would be easy to layer over other shirts if you needed the extra warmth.
The embroidery trend is being seen everywhere, including footwear. These mule shoes come in both black and tan, and are so lovely. I fell in love with this pair and ordered them for my mom for our fall colors post, but she doesn’t like walking in them, so they just got handed down to me. Believe me when I say, I’m not unhappy about that, LOL!
The last of our sweaters is this super soft, furry sweater. This one is definitely heavier than all of the others, and will keep you warm without layers underneath it. It only comes in grey and blush and isn’t available in petites.
You can see that the sweater is slightly longer in the back than the front. On the website, it looks like they’ve folded over the neck ribbing.
We were gifted these sweaters by Soft Surroundings, and they are providing the $100 gift certificate for the giveaway.
