Black Jeans

It's been cold here in Seattle, so the last thing I've wanted to do when I go out is wear a dress—tights just are not warm enough. I've been wearing a lot of black skinny jeans. I have a pair of coated, and a pair of uncoated, and I love the way I can style them with similar tops: uncoated for day, coated for night. Here's one example of the uncoated jeans with what I have decided is the best sweater ever. My uncoated jeans are a recommendation from Fran - the BDG skinnies from Urban Outfitters. I adore them. The coated ones I have are from Nordstrom. These appear to be super similar. 

Sweater: J. Crew Factory
Tank: Nordstrom Rack (similar)
Jeans: Urban Outfitters
Wedges: Target

About the sweater:
I was worried about this sweater when I first bought it. I'm comfortable with the snug fit, and the super duper oversized fit. But the kind of boxy and square shape fit...just not that flattering most of the time. But I had been looking for a mustard sweater for so long, and it was on sale, so I got it. And at times I look in the mirror and realize it isn't the greatest shape in the world. But most of the time, I adore the fit. It doesn't bunch or ride up during the day, and it has the perfect amount of slouch to pair with skinny jeans. J. Crew Factory is still carrying this sweater in a couple of colors if you want to check it out.
