Stylish Sweatshirts






Hi there!  It's been a while, huh?  Sorry about that.  I haven't been taking any outfit photos recently because I have been dressing in my most casual duds for work.  We did a major overhaul of our back stock room which required a whole lot of kneeling and sitting and sweating and climbing around in dust and dirt.  Needless to say, this outfit is NOT an example of that kind of look!


I found this super-cute printed sweatshirt at Old Navy when I was last there and couldn't resist scooping it up for around $9!  I had planned to just wear it with my yoga pants to update my lounging look, but then I tried to come up with some different ways to wear it as well.  I have seen a few other ladies dressing up their sweats and thought I would give it a shot.  


Sweatshirt:  Old Navy (you are not getting it at $9 online, maybe in store)
Skirt: Forever 21
Heels:  TJ Maxx
Lanyard Necklace: Dress Barn (you heard me)


To dress up my printed sweatshirt, I chose to add in a textured skirt and some mixed metallics with my heels and jewelry.  Even though the sweatshirt is pretty loose, I still felt the total look came out much cooler than I had expected...I just need an occasion to wear it!  

Don't forget, it's Manic Monday linkup time...click the button on my sidebar to join us!!

mixed metals for my necklaces
As an aside,  let me ask you something...seriously...should I go back to taking my pictures inside?  Is it really that much better of a background, this outside shot of my vines?  Tell me your opinion, please!!  Thanks!

XO,
Alyssa

  2. Oh, WAY sleek! Great combinations, and it is a lovely thing. You know I'm nuts about the shoes, too.
    Winner, winner, out to dinner!

  3. I love that sweatshirts have been re-vamped over the last couple seasons! So many good options out there, like this one! Love how you've dressed it up! And, I always love the way natural outdoor light looks on outfits!
    Thanks for sharing with Manic Monday! Appreciate your support!
