The Softest Hooded Sweater
This sweater is 40% off today at Loft, and the XS is already sold out, so it’s definitely one to grab now if you like it.
This material is that super soft, stretchy knit that’s so popular right now. Besides being cozy and comfortable, it also keeps its shape, which is really nice! I hate it when sweaters seem to grow as I wear them.
It’s a little longer than some, and it has a relaxed styling that’s perfect for those days when you want to be comfortable but still look put together. Which, let’s face it, is pretty much every day, right???
I also like the sporty hood, raglan sleeves, and split hem — all fun little details that make this the perfect weekend sweater. For size reference, I have the small, so I’d say it runs true to size.
I’ve had this pair for several years, and I still reach for them at least once a week. They have a raw hem and some slight fading for a lived-in look, but there’s no distressing, which is nice because they can be dressed up or down.
The sporty look of the sweater lends itself well to sneakers, and I’ve worn it a few times with my Converse as seen here, but for this look I decided to level it up a bit with these over the knee boots.
I’m a huge fan of these boots, particularly for the whipstitching on the side, and also because the comfort and fit is outstanding. The 1″ heel is perfect for giving you a little height but still being walkable.
They’re on a good sale, but unfortunately the grey is almost sold out. If you like these particular boots, there are a lot of sizes left in the taupe, and it’s a really pretty neutral. I also rounded up a couple of grey options in the shopping widget at the end of this post.
I carried this grey leather hobo that I picked up at Nordstrom recently. This is a nice mid-size leather bag from Treasure & Bond, and because it doesn’t carry a big designer name, it offers a really good value for the price. It also comes in black and burgundy, and I’ve been kind of kicking myself for not getting the burgundy. In fact, a burgundy bag would be really cute with this outfit!
Since this sweater doesn’t really lend itself to wearing a necklace, I wore bigger earrings. These silver filigree drop earrings are only $16 at Macy’s right now, and I find myself reaching for them often with my casual outfits.
I added my silver link bracelet and link ring to finish the look. If you’re a regular, you know I wear these two pieces almost every day — both were gifts from my husband over the years. Mixing classic higher end designer pieces with more budget-friendly trends keeps things interesting and is a modern way to accessorize.
As simple as it is, I think this look is one of my favorites from the series so far. I really like the contrast of the sporty hood with the soft knit sweater, and the longer length with split hem and relaxed shape is fun for a change. And while I usually wear sneakers with this sweater, I like how the OTK boots take it up a notch while still being comfortable and practical.
