My Favorite Sweater Shell

My Favorite Sweater Shell

A few years ago, one of my friends bought me this sweater shell. I took one look at it and was like “oh great, a sweater vest. That’s what my friends think of me. I’m officially that person.” Images of 70-year-old-men wearing argyle on golf courses immediately sprang to mind.

But y’all. I was so wrong.

I rapidly became obsessed with this sweater (hence why this post is titled my favorite sweater shell!). I started wearing it as a top (like here), layered under a sweater (like here) or under a blazer (as seen below), and, yes, I even wore it a few times as a sweater vest (I swear it looked cute!).

What I’m Wearing:

Sweater Shell: J.Crew (previously seen here) / Blazer: J.Crew, old (similar) / Skirt: J.Crew
Purse: Rebecca Minkoff / Shoes: similar / Earrings: BaubleBar / Ring: BaubleBar

I fell so deeply in love with this layering piece that at one point, I actually went out and bought it in about 3 different colors. And then, about a year later (ahem roughly 3 weeks ago), I accidentally ran a few of them through the wash… thus ruining them for forever.


And yes, I am a 26 year old woman who still doesn’t really know how to do laundry. Issues, y’all.

So why am I telling you all of this? Wellllllll J.Crew is currently having a sale (until Monday night!)… making now the absolute perfect time to stock up on basics (and not-so-basics but super fun pieces like this blazer). Make sure you use code “SHOPMORE” at checkout so you can save up to 30%! (Yaaaaaaaaas!)
