Ageless Style is a monthly style challenge and link up for women "over a certain age". Each month we pick a different theme and style an outfit based on that theme. This month's theme is ""Sweatshirts" and was picked by Jodie.
When Jodie picked "Sweatshirts" as our theme this month, I laughed and said "I don't think I even own a sweatshirt!" I then remembered I had a black souvenir sweatshirt from Italy, so I originally planned on wearing that. But then the weather warmed up and it just didn't feel right wearing a thick black sweatshirt, so off to the mall I went!
While shopping, I couldn't help notice how much sweatshirts really are trending right now! No wonder Jodie picked "Sweatshirts" as our theme. I love how they are wearing sweatshirts with just about everything: skirts, jeans, joggers, wide leg pants...you name it.
I really want to focus on spring/summer clothes on my blog right now, so I chose this white floral sweatshirt from Old Navy. I had hoped to pair it with a skirt, but I didn't think it matched any of the skirts I already owned, and I didn't want to buy a new skirt in addition to a sweatshirt. I decided then to pair my new sweatshirt with some spring/summer pants that had the same colors in the floral pattern.
These pants are a lightweight cotton. They are from Stitch Fix, and are several years old. They are one of my favorite pairs of pants to wear during the warmer months as they are so cool and comfy.
I think (I hope anyway) that I will get a lot of use out of this sweatshirt this spring. The white color plus the floral pattern is perfect for spring. I do have a casual vacation coming up, so I will definitely get some use out of it then.
Because it's too cold for sandals right now, I chose a white pair of Adidas sneakers for footwear. I also want to add not to be afraid of wearing jewelry with a sweatshirt. Just because your top is casual, you can add some accessories to make it look like you put some effort into getting dressed that morning. Here I am wearing both large hoop earring and a necklace with my sweatshirt.
I want to quickly show you some other ways you can wear sweatshirts this season:
Over a Dress with Sneakers
With a Skirt:
With Faux Leather Pants or Any Dressier Pants
Or the usual way: With joggers or leggings:
So now let's check in on the rest of the ladies and see how they are styling their sweatshirts and be sure to link up with us below.
So what about you? Is a new sweatshirt something you would add to your wardrobe this spring, or will you pass on this trend? I'd love to hear from you!
Have A Great Day! Amy
