I know you probably read the title to this post and thought, “Why is she talking about sweaters when it’s 80 degrees outside?” To my credit, this is a short-sleeve, loose-knit version…which makes it much more doable this time of year. And I love the versatility of it – so cute paired with little black shorts or wide leg linen pants in summer, but could easily be layered over a long sleeve tee with skinny jeans & boots for fall.
I have been lusting after this Vince version for quite some time. But even with it currently being on sale, $240 is still too steep for me. So, I had put it on my “wish list” and thought maybe someday I would find something similar for less (fingers crossed).
Thankfully, this weekend was my moment! I swear, I only drove to the Outlet Mall because I had a return…but I also had a 60%-off-any-item coupon at Banana Republic. So, I popped in to have a look around and, to my delight, this sweater was the only one of its kind in the entire store, in my size & marked down (I may have audibly squealed)!
