Casual in Jumbo Dots

Old Navy released its popular boatneck sweaters at the end of the summer and I decided that it was just too early and still too hot to start purchasing sweaters.  Wrong move!  The sweaters quickly sold out in my favorite polka dot style.  Darn it!

I’ve since been casually shopping around for a polka dot sweater.  The styles that have appeared in the Gap and J.Crew are gorgeous, but they’re all made of wool.  Itch!  Anyone else have a wool sensitivity?  

I found the jumbo dot sweater featured today in Forever 21.  It was under $20 and hence a cheap way to get the look I’ve been shopping for.

    I missed out on the Old Navy version too, though I have a navy version from last year. This sweater works just as well though!

      Ooh…that navy version from last year is so fresh! I missed that one too.

    I was lucky to snag the Old Navy version in black and white and I wish I got other colors. I think this one from F21 is a great alternative! You look fantastic!

      Lucky you! I'm really hoping that ON brings those sweaters back. I really love the fit. Thanks for stopping by!

    You know…it is amazing how much you can do with a chambray blouse. I have one and I am trying not to wear it so much but…OMG…I love the look. I recently picked up a black and white striped sweater and you have given me another idea on how to wear it. Thanks!

      Ain't that the truth! Even with this public record of the outfits I wear, I still wear my chambray shirt too frequently. Ha. We can't help that it just goes so well with everything, right?
