OASAP: Turtleneck Batwing Sleeved Belted Sweater and Teardrop Pattern Necklace + Outfit

Happy Sunday!

I've mentioned a couple of times how my busy school and work schedule has taken a huge amount of time away from blogging... and as promised, every change I get, I blog! ;)

So right now, I want to show you guys the amazing items I got from OASAP:

Let's talk about the necklace first...

The set features a layered necklace and teardrop earrings. 
The necklace with adjustable clasp. The earrings with post backs.

This necklace design has been going around for some time now, and I finally got one!
I was gonna go for a yellow, but I was like, hey I think it's time to go for something new -- so turquoise it is! ;)

It's really pretty and it goes with basically everything -- I always get compliments every time I wear this necklace = LOVE!

Price: $16.77
NOW: $10.06

Also available in: Blue, Black, Coral, Hot Pink, Light Blue, White, and Yellow

And now, the sweater...

The warm whole color sweater featuring a turtleneck, short batwing sleeves, loose waist with belt embellishment. In a regular fit.

When I saw this sweater on OASAP's website, it was love at first sight!

It just looked to me like a sweater that is flattering for everyone, and I was right!
I'm usually a little iffy about ordering one size items online, but this one is a winner! :)

I love how the batwing sleeves balance out the sweater's turtleneck.
I wear this sweater on days when it's cold but not really, haha! ;)
You can also wear a black long-sleeved shirt under for when it gets really cold.

As if I didn't already love it enough, they added this really flattering belt... tying the sweater will give you a sleeker, more polished look!

Price: $35.90

Also available in: Brown

The rest of my outfit...

I wore my sweater with my black Mari leggings from BCBG (where I work, by the way!!!)... I also wore it with simple embellished black ballet flats. :)
