As Instagram & Snapchat friends know, we’re currently on a mini roadtrip through Maine before heading home for Thanksgiving! I’ve been wearing this tummy-forgiving sweater frequently to dinner and also for lounging in our room with knit bottoms. I styled it here with my slim ankle pants and a little print mixing for added interest. Ann Taylor is currently having 40% off new arrivals w/GIVE40 including both my sweater and bow heels worn here! Other new arrivals worth checking out is this floral drape blouse, large faux fur collar (a luxe accent for plain coats or for winter cocktail parties), rose gold sequin skirt (would need the usual taking-in on someone my size), and these gold heels if you don’t own a pair yet.
The quality of this sweater impressed me as it’s a warm, thicker and tighter knit plus the sizing runs small. The sleeves especially fit slim and pretty tight at first, but stretch out a little with wear. I like that the nipped in waist actually hits higher at my natural waistline, and the overall length is just right on a shorter frame. If you’re over an inch or so taller than me, I’d recommend checking out the regular sizing for more length. The wool/nylon/cotton/cashmere blend doesn’t require dry cleaning (although I’ve been washing all my sweaters at home these days with this wool & cashmere shampoo, including the ones labeled dry clean only!).
I have these sloan ankle pants in multiple colors/fabrics now, but still default most often to classic navy. I love them for travel as they’re comfy and aren’t too tight. Also, they don’t seem to stretch out or wrinkle much on me. They are still on promo now for 40% off with code BRFRIENDS !
