J. Crew Lace Printed Sweatshirt

Are you all ready for Christmas? We had a ton of snow over the past few days so for sure we're having a white Christmas. Trying to avoid the malls this past week as people are frantically doing their last minute shopping and it is getting very chaotic everywhere.

My Christmas shopping was done quite a while ago but I was dreading to wrap up my gifts until last weekend. So all wrapped and ready to go. Spending Christmas here and then we are heading home to Toronto for a couple of weeks to visit my side of the family. I have been doing very good in restraining myself from doing any more online shopping for the past 2 weeks. Tried so hard not to be tempted by J. Crew constant sale promotions. 

There are a few items I have been "stalking" on. One of them is the lace-printed sweatshirt(seen on Shopping with m & Gigi's Gone Shopping) But when I saw it on sale last and on the fabulous A Bigger Closet, I had to bite.

It is a thicker fabric of sweatshirt with lace-printed pattern. It is a stiffer kind of fabric. Not your usual soft cozy sweatshirt kind. The pattern is very cute. Not too overly done and I like the bottom of it as it gives the illusion of you wearing a lace top over a cami.



As the fabric is thicker, I can definitely wear this even in the cold winter months. 

When I saw how A Bigger Closet style hers, I'm immediately sold as she layers it with a tissue turtleneck, making it more appropriate for winter weather.


I tried it with my black turtleneck but I may try it with a brighter color to make it contrast a bit more.

Currently this is sold out online. Think it will pop back sooner or later. I'm excited to check out the sale sections when I'm in Toronto. There are a few new stores and a factory store opened since I was home last.

  4. Really pretty top. It's a good buy. I spent 3 hours wrapping gifts on Friday night. It's my least favorite time too.

    1. same here, I don't mind the Christmas shopping but the wrapping. I don't enjoy it at all. Got some gift bags and stuff some in to make the job easier and more bearable :)

      Thank you! Merry Christmas to you and your family.
