Fashionistas and clothes-wearing friends, thank you for visiting for this Ageless Style 03.2022: Styling Sweatshirts Without the Sweat. It’s the third Thursday which means the Ageless Style gang is back together again. This month to style a sweatshirt. Without the sweat. Outside the gym. I have a number of favorite sweat(free)shirts that I love to wear. They are a comfy, fun transition piece for weather during those in-between seasons. Between fall and winter, winter and spring.
But before we get to that, hope you will check out last month’s it’s a wrap look here, if you missed that post. And the month before, my French terry veri peri sweatshirt that could be the star of this post, too, had I not already shared it with you in January.
The Ageless Style linkup is hosted by a stylish group of fashion bloggers and me. Not sure how I fit in exactly. Maybe comic relief??

AGELESS STYLE 03.2022
One of my first sweat(less) shirts was this one I had designed to promote my blog by Lindsay at Simply September Shop on Etsy. That was 3 years ago before I went ‘silver.’
Since then I have really embraced this trend.
A simple gray sweatshirt with blush denim. And a Loft outlet floral sweatshirt with the same blush jeans.
I Heart Sweatshirts
My BFF Sharon sent me several really cute sweatshirts just as we went into Covid. This tie-dye sweatshirt has been a go-to since Sharon gave it to me. Wearing it here during a visit to Kentucky to care for Mom while she was hospitalized and to move her from one apartment to another.
I think you can see that I heart sweatshirts. Even the ones I’ve sweated in!!
For today’s post I want to share a dressed up take on the sweatshirt. A look I wore for date night…or more accurately, date day with PC. I purchased this glitzy rose gold glitter heart sweatshirt from Wildly Free Tee Shop on Etsy.
These photos were taken right after my dreadful haircut that I am still trying to recover from. Looks a little like it was cut with an electric knife. But we are here to talk about the sweatshirt, not the hair. Right??
Paired my sweatshirt with a J. Crew Factory pleated pale pink skirt and nude peep toe pumps. And that’s a lot of Ps. Added a rose gold and pink heart pendant Paul gave me for Christmas a few years ago. More Ps.
I’ve had the skirt since spring of 2020, but with Covid, I had nowhere to wear it. Really liked the way this look came together.
Taking It Out on the Town
Wore this outfit to church and then to lunch at Melting Pot fondue restaurant. PC was kind enough to indulge me in a few pictures.
In the sunlight my hair doesn’t look quite so butchered. Or silver.
Wish I had thought to change out my purse. I never ever remember to do that. Have the cutest rose gold clutch that I never think to use. Not that I have a lot of occasion to use a rose gold clutch in the first place. But it sure would have been cute with this outfit.
Felt like a fancy lady in this sweatshirt and skirt combo. I like the contrast between the oversized, informal sweatshirt and the pleated, dressier skirt.
Forgot to mention the Plunder cuff I am wearing. The Frankie bracelet. Multi-colored beads & faux leopard with antique gold magnetic closure. And for earrings just wore some simple rose gold studs.
One for the Road
My most recent sweatshirt purchase is this Lauren Conrad super soft velour floral number. It is available in 3 colors/prints and is on sale right now for less than $15.00. I purchased the Beatrice Blooms print but wondering if I might need the Mauve Wild Berry Sprig, too!! Washes beautifully and doesn’t have to be IRONED!!
I have what my grandmother would call an ‘ample bosom’ and am wearing a medium. The fabric of this sweatshirt is like…
Those are just some of my sweatshirts. Have a favorite summer sweatshirt…summer sweatshirt?? Yes, summer sweatshirt that I bought at Old Navy for our trip to South Padre beach. Perfect piece to throw on with jeans, shorts or even over my bathing suit. Have you embraced the sweatshirt trend yet?
I don’t know about you but I am anxious to see how my Ageless Style friends have styled this month’s prompt. Let’s go check out their sweatshirts, want to?? Follow me!!
