Swingin' It

When it comes to fashion, I absolutely love finding something that is both comfortable and stylish. I love walking out the door in the morning knowing that I am going to be just as comfortable walking in the door at the end of the day-this outfit was one of those!

I was super surprised when I opened this gorgeous Lobo Mau swing sweatshirt on Christmas morning-mainly because my husband and I agreed to only do stocking stuffers (I should have known though-he never follows the rules at Christmas)! But as surprised as I was, I was just as excited to style it! Besides being so soft and comfortable, this sweatshirt is screen printed by hand right here in Pennsylvania and sold locally at Arthur & Daughters, which makes it that much more special to me- I love being able to support my fellow downtown merchants (her shop is right down the block from mine) and Made in the USA collections.

The scalloped edge of the sweatshirt also made it perfect for layering-I thought a basic white button up would give it a completed and polished look.

One thing I love to do is layer, but layering doesn't always have to be saved for chunky knits or puffer vests. I think layering a crisp button up under a crop top or a sweatshirt similar to what I am wearing is so classic. I am well past the point of wearing crop tops (in fact, I don't think I ever did even when I was in my prime), and I tend to steer clear of them. But every once in a while, I do make a crop top purchase with the intent to layer with it-it makes it a little more age appropriate! (Not that I would buy one that isn't to begin with!)

And I will leave you with the cutest photobomber there ever was......
