DIY Flower Headdress (Tutorial), Chunky Batwing Cardigan c/o Romwe, Forever 21 Maxi Dress

I love chunky cardigans that feel like heavy blankets :) I much prefer wearing a thick oversized sweater or cardigan in the fall and winter, verses a structured coat. I really don't like the feeling when you can't move your arms around as freely because of jacket sleeves. Chunky cardigans and sweaters also feel more laid back and look cozier! This one is from Romwe and I'm quite pleased with the quality; I've been noticing that sweaters being sold at cheaper retail stores in the mall have only been getting thinner and thinner, but this one is rather thick so it's worth the money! If you plan on using chunky knitwear as outerwear, then it's definitely worth paying a little extra money to buy something of better quality so it doesn't fall apart.

This maxi dress is one of the pieces I got from Forever 21's additional 50% off sale special last weekend! It was only $3.50 :D I thought the colors of my flower headdress would complement the terracotta tone of the dress to create an Earth fairy inspired look! Speaking of which, I'm dying for season 2 of the Legend of Korra to come out! I'm going to have to add an air, water, earth, and fire-bender inspired look to the list of outfits I'd like to create in the future!
