Ann Taylor’s current practice of having a different price for an item every single day is starting to annoy me. But I still love this sweater, and it’s…surprise, surprise…on sale this week. Down to $69 from $88, plus take an additional 40% off with code EXTRA40, which should make it about $40. Add free shipping, and it’s definitely worth trying.
Crochet is definitely a hot trend now, but the style can be hard to pull off without going too beachy boho. This one has enough structure that it works well for casual looks, but I’d also love to see it layered under a blazer for day. It’s also a nice stand-in for lace if – like me – you’ve had a devil of a time successfully styling that trend. It’s the perfect thing to throw on over a bikini top and shorts, or just to give you a bit of texture play over a tank top. Mostly, though, I’m envisioning it with a straw fedora, cutoffs and a bicycle, as a photo on Garance Dore‘s blog…which is definitely not a bad thing.
