XL Sweater and Faux Leather Fleece Lined Leggings

Sometimes, the best thing you can do is just walk around with your friends without a purpose. After my gift exchange with my friends, we couldn't figure out what to do. So we aimlessly walked around Aberdeen. Not too long after noming at the food court, emi and I decided to be true bloggers and get my bf to take cam-whore outfit pictures of us :)

Old Navy waffle sweater sz XL (here); American Eagle marled snood (here); Wholesale7 bag (here)
Wholesale 7 faux-leather fleece-lined leggings (here); Jessica Simpson 'Capry' boots (here)
That day, I'm wearing the waffle sweater I bought on boxing day for about $10. The only sizes left were XS and XL. Normally, I wouldn't even take a second look at the XL sweater... but... the sweater was just SO soft I couldn't stop squishing it against my face. So I pulled it over my head anyways :)
The XS fit me fine, but the XL oversize fit look SO much cuter!! And I can make it off-shoulder too. So  though it's like 5 times bigger than I would normally wear, it was still the better choice. Just goes to show how you can't always trust what something looks like until you wear it!

Cam-whoring with emi :)

Also, these faux-leather leggings are fleece-lined on the inside! Double score. I really love these- and yes, they're from Wholesale7 for only $6.25! Good quality too. They're great for the winter. The only thing is that the inseam is pretty short, so besides the fact that they look long on the Asian model, I should have known they'd be calf length on me. *Facepalm

Oh well, on me they look like they're supposed to be capri length so I don't really mind.

SERIOUS OM NOMS! If you're ever in Aberdeen, definitely try the Teppanyaki place. It's very reasonably priced ($7.50/plate) and they usually have a 'dish of the day' for $6- with a free drink and miso soup! You can also add things on the side, like an egg as I did here ;) Ahh, so good! And you can add whatever sauce you want to your plate and cook it yourself to perfection ;)

The one pictured here is the 14-spiced chicken teppanyaki. I'd definitely recommend it~


  1. Can't believe the waffle sweater cost only $10 - so lucky! It looks great on you.

  2. I love your whole outfit so much, its totally something I would wear =) Really into the whole slouchy jumpers and those scarfs. I also have an obsession with black bags with gold detailing haha. Anyway I hope you have a happy new year xx

  7. Cute sweaters... and yummy food p0rn! Hope you have an amazing New Year!

  8. Cute sweater Vonnie! :) Looks like you had a ton of fun! Happy New Year :)

  9. What a great idea! I would never look at an XL either, and I still probably wouldn't, for fear that it would not be flattering. You made it look great though, and it probably works best on thin fabrics.

  10. I love that sweater, it looks great on you! I never would've thought to pick up an XL but maybe I should get into that habit. Fleece lined leggings? Genius.

    I just credited you on my blog post as you were the reason my boyfriend and I went to Preston's tonight. Looks like I'll have to do it again in the future as that Teppanyaki place sounds delicious!
