Dress Up a Sweatshirt

Since having our baby, I've been wearing sweats a lot. It's easy and it's comfy. But I realize I often look like I just rolled out of bed (because I did). What I need is a dressier sweatshirt to wear... and low and behold, my problem was solved by Bow & Drape.

{Sweatshirt: c/o Bow & Drape, Maxi Dress: Old Navy, Wedges: Old Navy}

Bow & Drape makes cute and comfy sweatshirts, tees, tanks, dresses, and more... and the best part is you can customize them with your favorite phrase or word, or use any of their cute embellishments. It's so fun to be able to design your own clothes!

{Sweatshirt: c/o Bow & Drape, Shorts: Target, Wedges: J.Crew (old), Sunglasses: Tory Burch}

For me, I decided on this super cute, white, textured sweatshirt with these side zippers that give them a bit of a fancier feel. I went with these 3 red flower embellishments because though I was tempted to do something like "#givemecoffee", I figured that would go against my goal of not making it obvious I'm only half awake. And the best part about this sweatshirt? I don't need to accessorize, which is great because baby girl does not let me wear much jewelry anymore... unless I want them ripped off of me.. oh the joys of motherhood. Now go start personalizing your own clothes at Bow & Drape!

How awesome you can customize a shirt! This almost looks like a sweater bc of the texture! Very cute!!!

That's very stylish--you have a habit of making things look stylish. I like the idea of personalizing a shirt. It would be fun.

I love the maxi dress and wedge sandals outfit with this sweatshirt. The shorts and wedge sandals outfit is also nice, but I like the dress outfit more. The one constant is that charming sweatshirt. Lovely style!

The sweater is so pretty! You look amazing since your comeback.

Olivia said...

I love how you used this shirt for two different outfits! Very creative. Both of them are fantastic but I really like the second one...Just because shorts sound much nicer to wear in 80 degree weather (weather where I live now) than a maxi skirt right now:P Hope you have a marvelous day!

Sarah said...

Love it with the shorts! Perfect for those semi chilly evenings.

Lovely! You look AMAZING!!! Isn't it annoying how anyone who finds out you just had a baby automatically asks how tired you are? Not tired at all, I say, in fact I've never been more alert!
