Wearing My Heart on My Sleeve(s)

Hello! Shein recently sent me this striped top to incorporate into my winter wardrobe and I've already worn it several times. This is their "Frill Trim Pinstripe Sweatshirt" and it retails for $17 here. I love its classic print, boxy silhouette and ruffled detailing; I seriously can't get over how much I love its frilly sleeves. Ha- I guess you could say I'm wearing my heart on my sleeves! The overly feminine detailing of the sleeves looks great peeking out from underneath any jacket or coat.

I played up its classic appeal for this look and layered it over a little black fringe dress. I emphasized the fun fringe detailing of the dress by slipping on a fringe jacket with it as well. I love how the sleeves of the sweater look peeking out from underneath the fringe jacket. I made my outfit a little more appropriate for the chilly weather we've been experiencing here in Richmond with a pair of black opaque tights and a vintage fur beret.

I added a slight touch of color to the look with a vintage pair of green booties and chic green purse. Red lipstick and classic golden jewelry perfected the look.
