I like the thought of a soft, cozy sweatshirt to wear on weekends, but I’ve always stayed clear because, let’s face it, most sweatshirts have been pretty boring…up until now.
Take a look at this cute sweatshirt I just picked up and the fantastic deal I got!
A few weeks back I wrote a post about how sweatshirts were undergoing a major makeover. Everyone is into comfort these days, so it is no wonder designers are responding with new and interesting ways to reimagine this casual favorite. I happened upon this easygoing burgundy sweatshirt with the big boho bell sleeves, and thought, why not?
This is a top you can wear when you want to feel, soft snuggly and warm but you also want a bit of style, too. The wide 70’s inspired sleeves take this sweatshirt to a whole new level. The sleeves are a little long ( It’s part of the “I’m so natural and easygoing” look), but surprisingly the top doesn’t feel baggy. It’s fairly streamlined through the body even though it is a loose fitting top.
This top is a little plain at the neckline, so I layered on a cute scarf to add some dimension and texture. This is one that I had in my closet, but I have included links below to similar ones that would work nicely, too. I think a scarf really adds a lot.
Are you wondering about my bag? That’s actually a python embossed phone case on a strap from GiGi NY. Really, that’s all you need on weekends plus a credit card and a bit of cash that you can tuck inside this case. A crossbody purse is also a great accessory for this relaxed look. It goes with the natural/sporty vibe that is at the core of the goes with boho style. You can order these initialized which makes a great X-mas gift. Do you know what the L stands for in my initials?
Boots are my favorite thing to wear this time of year, and I especially love over the knee boots. There’s something about a very tall flat boot that makes you feel very earthy and ready for action. For some reason, an image of Robin Hood is running through my head (lol!).
I guess it’s because these boots really do have that Robin Hood feel, (or even pirate feel, for that matter!)
Black suede, with lots of buttons and edgy elasitcized lace-ups all the way up the back.. these over the knee boots are very cool and super eye-catching! They’re also very comfy and easy to put on. Leave it to Vince Camuto to come up with a fab pair of boots like these, and they’re quite reasonably priced too!
These are the type of boots that will also look fabulous with a cute winter sweater dress and black tights!
My sunglasses are Ray-Ban- I’m crazy about this hexagonal shape, as you know if you have seen my other outfit posts, and my earrings are by Kendra Scott. I can’t tell you how much I’ve worn these earrings. The exotic cutouts and sassy swing make them fun, but they’re still very classy. They go with everything. I like a dangle earring with a swashbuckling outfit like this. Studs would just be too prim and proper.
So there’s my take on the Saturday sweatshirt. Such a refreshing change from the common gray, crew neck style that is as old as the hills. Now the best part, this top is on SALE. It’s 40% off so if you like it, pick one up quick because I doubt these will be hanging around for long!
