WIW: new pullover & oldish jeans

Here is a pretty typical outfit for me these days. My pandemic style is generally jeans + t-shirt & cardigan or jeans + pullover. I am only occasionally working (still at OSKA, but as a substitute, not a regular part-timer), and when I go out of the house, I'm either exercising or picking up take-out food or coffee.

Lately I have been focusing on color, trying to get back to the ones that look best on me. Without lipstick (which I avoid because of masks now--although in the pics below I have on tinted lip balm), I find that wearing flattering colors is now more important to me. I bought several new things during recent sales, and this pullover is one of them. Definitely a keeper. I got it yesterday and am wearing it today.
I haven't been here much lately, I know, and can't even bring myself to "review" this awful, personally wrenching year. But I do appreciate the YLF community!
The outfit (worn for a rainy day spent mostly indoors at home, except for a take-out crepe and coffee run!): Blue and white marled pullover (Joie, Kamryn); blue cropped straight-leg Mom jeans (Levis, Wedgie); black moto boots (Blondo, Camila); gray tweed-print puffer (OSKA); black and navy leather and wool baseball cap; hammer silver-tone pendant (Lucky).
Thanks for looking, and thanks for being here!

    Perfect - great jeans, great fit of the sweater, great accessories - couldn't do better as a WFH/life at home look.

    Welcome back :) I've always liked marled yarns!

  • Nikki replied 3 months ago

    Great outfit! The buckles on the bootie and raw hem of the jeans are edgy! Excellent heather knit sweater. The pendant is a stand-out.

    The jumper is gorgeous!! Whoa!

  • Firecracker replied 3 months ago

    Thanks, all!
    Thanks, Torontogirl. I'm flattered!
    Suntiger, I have a soft spot for marled yarns, too, and tweeds.
    Nikki, so sweet--thank you.
    Rachylou, thanks! I was excited that I liked the sweater when it arrived.

    Wow you look great, the marled goes super well with your hair. I like your hairstyle!

  • shevia replied 3 months ago

    So good to see you Sharan! I am sorry the year has been so rough, but let's hope a new year will be better. Excellent point about lipstick - masks are the new lipstick I guess.
    Anyway, you look fabulous. I absolutely love the fit of those jeans on you - are they the wedgie jeans in your finds? Hmm. May have to investigate! 

  • Firecracker replied 3 months ago

    Thank you, Phoebe!
    Jaime, thanks for the good wishes! Yes, the jeans are the ones in the Find. I have three pairs of the Wedgie style, in blue, off-white, and black. I would consider getting a 4th pair, if I were to happen across a full-length pair.

    Very nice look - sweater is fab with your boots and jeans! 
    Love the printed puffer!

  • Bijou replied 3 months ago

    Firecracker, that sweater looks like it was made for you and you are such a great advertisement for OSKA, the grey puffer is superb on you. Sorry to hear that this has been a tough year for you. I have never felt as fortunate to live in Australia as I have this year. Of course, things can change in an instant, so I am touching wood as I type.

    Firecracker, great outfit! The puffer jacket looks very warm and the jumper is fab, not to mention the boots, so edgy!

  • kkards replied 3 months ago

    YLF.
    I wish i had better words, i’m so sorry this year was so hard for you, and I sincerely hope that 2021 finds you in a better place. 

  • Janet replied 3 months ago

    I hear you on the rough year, and I’m sending you wishes for a much brighter 2021!

    You look great, despite the tough times. I love that marled sweater on you, and you are one of the people who make me wish I wore that style of jean well. YLF!

  • Murph11 replied 3 months ago

    Love this outfit, and I would nab that sweater if it was available! And the puffer is so good! Sending you wishes for a bright new year.

    (You had me at take-out crepe! ;-) )

  • Style Fan replied 3 months ago

    You always have the best jeans.  I love these on you.  The colour of the sweater looks so good with denim and with your hair.  Fantastic edgy boots!

    It has been a rough year.  I hope next year is better.

  • Suz replied 3 months ago

    You look wonderful. I am really loving your short hair again. It's lightening, lifting. Fabulous on you. 

    Great new pullover, too! I also love the necklace. 

    How do you find the Camilla bootie? I've just ordered a different Blondo on sale but it might not be the right size, in which case (since my other size is sold out) I may give these a try. 

  • Joy replied 3 months ago

    You do look wonderful. The booties are so fab and make the outfit for me. I love the pullover for this chilly weather. Your “ uniform “ sounds similar to mine except for jeans. Most of my pants need to be pull- ons now. That is a challenge at this time of so many high rise pants and cropped lengths.

    KILLER as always, and how LOVELY to see you :)

  • Firecracker replied 3 months ago

    Thank you, everyone, for your kind and thoughtful words!

    Suz, these boots are stiff, which I worried would bother me, but it doesn't. I wear my 3/4 Superfeet insole in them, to get my heel in the right spot, which I often need to do with Blondos. I haven't worn them a whole lot, but have worn them for entire days. The shaft hasn't softened up, but it doesn't rub anywhere and isn't uncomfortable.

  • kellygirl replied 3 months ago

    Love this head to toe. Those booties make me squee and I love the simple but solid outfit. So perfect, as usual. Let's hope for a better 2021! You look terrific!

  • Staysfit replied 3 months ago

    So good to see you.  I like the new sweater, and understand a preference to move towards flattering colors.  I continue to wear lipstick even under masks.  I purchased some re-usable structured face mask frames that hold the material away from my mouth.
