The Pullover Sweater/Dress Combo

{image a la tumblr}

I have always loved the cozy vintage feel of the pullover sweater on top of a sweet dress.  I like sweaters, I like dresses, the two together – winning!  Plus pairing your summer dresses with sweaters is a great way to transition your favorite dresses into fall.

Then Free People featured a million (or maybe three) loose-weave sweaters over dresses and slips in a summer catalog, and I thought Free People stole my style, and then I thought, yeah … I stole Taylor Swift’s style.  But also, Free People has a way of making me feel like all of the vintage and super soft sweaters and dresses currently in my closet are wholly inadequate.  Genius sales, Free People.  Genius.

Taylor Swift, Ashley Tisdale, and Alexa Chung all look picture perfect and vintage chic in their sweater/dress combos.
