Crop White Sweatshirt: Essential Spring Layering Piece + Giveaway

One of my essential layering pieces for Spring is a cropped white sweatshirt, which goes great over a dress or with jeans. This might seem like a surprising choice since I’m generally pretty dressy and sweatshirts are a casual girl’s essential, but I’m all about the mix and match. Plus, this white sweatshirt from True Religion is anything from basic. I love the lace-up detail on the sleeves, and the cropped length really gives it an edgy feel. It’s also super soft and warm, perfect for the cooler Spring nights.

I layered the sweatshirt over a white floral dress for an easy breezy Spring look. The neckline of this dress is a bit too big and it kept sliding off my shoulders, so layering a sweatshirt over it was the perfect solution. I wanted this look to have a sporty vibe, so I chose black and white platform sneakers to go with the white sweatshirt. For a cutesy touch, I went with my mini black velvet crossbody cat bag. Finally, I completed the look with mirror sunglasses that are another one of my Spring essentials.

A little insight into this shoot – sometimes there are shoots when everything aligns perfectly, and other times it’s a struggle to make the outfit work with the location. This shoot was one of the latter – we tried a bunch of places in Bryant Park before finally coming up with the idea to place a chair right in front of the 41st and 6th intersection sign. It took a while to figure out it, but the good thing is my photographer Ashley and I always eventually find a way to make it work!

  6. Love the floral dress! Super smart idea to add a layer to cover the top part that was weird. I always find certain tips on dresses fit me odd too and always put a spin on it to not make it as ackward. The sunnies are my favorite! 🙂
