Chambray: J.Crew | Sweatshirt: Hello Merch | Pants: Madewell {similar} | Shoes: J.Crew Factory {similar}

Hello there!  If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw a sneak peek of this sweater yesterday.  If you aren’t following me on Instagram, why not?  To be honest, I don’t own many sweatshirts, they aren’t generally the most fashionable of all the tops.  But they sure are comfy and so perfect for wearing around the house.  There’s very few that I’ll actually wear out though, and this Hello happens to be one of them.  It’s cheeky, it’s cute, the font is so fun, and it works like a sweater in that it’s great worn with a shirt underneath or on its own really.  I thought it would be fun to brighten up with some yellow and purple details, love this color combo together!  Have you jumped on the Hello bandwagon yet (they have baby stuff too!)?


By the way, I wrote a guest post on The Weekend Diary (seriously one of my new fave blogs, this girl and I have similar fashion sense!).  Head on over there for an outfit post and a little insight on how I get dressed each morning!

P.S. Winner of the Gracie B Boutique giveaway is Megan Lane!  And the winners of the Zaarly giveaway are Katy Morris and Kathryn Elise!  Congrats ladies!  Send me an email at sandyalamode(at)gmail(dot)com and we’ll hook you all up w/ your credit!  :)
