Back to basics Express shopping haul
Hi everyone, hope you’re having a wonderful week so far, and for the US readers, hope you had a great Thanksgiving! Mine was filled with lots of food and a bit of online shopping, because seriously, no one has time to deal with the madness at the mall on Black Friday. My order from Express came in yesterday and here are the pieces I picked up:
Usually I’m not a fan of crew necks because it’s less flattering, but I love the rhinestone details of the sweater. You can dress this sweater up by pairing it with a skirt and a belt, or wear it casually with a pair of skinny jeans. The sweater is thick without being bulky, so you can definitely layer it under a jacket or a loose cardigan.
Another simple, but warm sweater for the winter. V-necks are my favorite because I find them to be the most flattering. Because the sweater is very simple your options to accessorize are endless. You could layer on a cardigan, or my favorite is to just add a big wool scarf for a pop of color and extra warmth.
The quality of the loop front tee is disappointing as it’s pretty thin. I was about to return it until I found how versatile it was. For a super casual look, you can wear it by itself over jeans, and layer on a cardigan for extra warmth. For a work appropriate look, wear it tucked inside a pencil skirt – with or without the cardigan. Finally to pull the whole look together, add a skinny belt.
Of course, I don’t need to say how much I love the crew neck cardigan – this is my 3rd one from Express! They’re excellent for layering and are extremely comfortable.
Hope you enjoyed this mini haul – I’ll have another one posted once my order from Ann Taylor comes in :)
