lightweight sweatshirts, how to style a sweatshirt, chic sweatshirts, graphic sweatshirts, sweatshirt summer As I was cleaning out my closet last weekend, I wondered if it was time to pack away all my sweaters for good. I did tuck away most of the heavier knits, but I left a few of the lightweight ones within easy reach. Boy am I glad I did, because this week we’ve experienced both summer and fall-like weather. Aside from keeping my lightweight long sleeves out for the fickle weather (Lydia described it perfectly), they’re good for cozying up at home or at night when the temperatures may drop. At least that’s what I’m telling myself as I try really hard to resist these two lightweight sweatshirts.

I love the entire ‘Bien Fait’ collection from Madewell. I have the phone case and I’m still get sad that I didn’t snag the t-shirt version before it sold out everywhere (ask my sister– I’ll text her from time to time, lamenting the fact that I didn’t lock it down when I had the chance). I was thrilled when they created a new version of the sweatshirt for summer in crisp white cotton. The other sweatshirt I’m loving is the ‘Oui Mon Cheri’ sweatshirt from J. Crew. I’m starting to realize I have a thing for whites this season and you know I’m a sucker for a French phrase!

    It’s good that you left some out because there are definitely cool Summer nights! They’re so comfortable too so they’re hard to part with ;)

    • That’s so true. I’m glad comfy pieces like these are in style right now :)

  • yes! I love a great graphic tee or sweatshirt and am loving the way you styled them here! have a great weekend friend!

    • Thank you Natalie! Hope you had a good weekend yourself :)

  • The Madewell Bien Fait collection is so good! The cooler weather this week has definitely been perfect for lightweight sweatshirts :)

    • Yes, that collection is so good! I’m still holding out hope that they’ll bring back that tee *fingers crossed*

  • I agree about the lightweight sweatshirt! They are great options. Especially for us in SF where weather always tends to be fickle anyway. =D


    • Hope you’re experiencing some nice weather today! :)

  • These lighter sweatshirts are so cute and would be quite perfect for this weather. Have you tried an ebay saved search for the tee? That is how I managed to snag the sold out ampersand…

    Chic on the Cheap

    • I have looked on ebay, but I’m not sure if I’ve done a saved search. Is that different from a regular search?

  • Love these looks!! I was just in Madewell yesterday and oh my gosh I could buy everything in the store right now! So much cute stuff! I spotted that sweatshirt and am really considering, love how you pair this with both fun floral pants and simple denim shorts. Have a great weekend Nnenna!

    • Thank you Nan! Everything in Madewell is so cute right now- I’m hoping they’ll have a sale soon!

  • I love this casual ensemble. I would wear that sweatshirt or a Tee with my blazer! It’s adorable. Have a lovely week!

    • Thank you Madison! I hope you have a lovely week as well :)

  • Sweatshirts are my friend too – UK weather is so temperamental and slipping on a sweatshirt with a cute slogan is too easy!

    • So true- a comfy sweatshirt like these makes getting dressed so much easier :)

  • I cleaned out my closet on Saturday night (because I’m so cool. It was a rager). Turns out I have some nice things :)

    American Eagle jeans were my go-to until I discovered Jessica Simpson jeans!

    • Good for you! Hmm, I’ve never tried JS jeans- where do they sell them? Do you like them better than your American Eagle ones?

      • Lately I like them better than American Eagle. For some reason the JS jeans are just really good for someone like me, who is slightly curvier than others. I usually buy them at Macys!

        • Good to know- thank you! I’ll have to remember to check them out the next time I’m at Macy’s.
