Already Pretty outfit featuring blue bolero, plaid shirt dress, charcoal tights, John Fluevog Heidi boots

Sweater bolero, Anthropologie (no longer available) – similar shape
Plaid shirt dress, Land’s End Canvas  (no longer available) – similar
Charcoal tights, Banana Republic
Boots, John Fluevog Heidi
Earrings, gift – similar

I’ve worn this bolero sweater many times, always buttoned up, and I’ve been curious about other options. Unbuttoned and left alone it looks floppy and bizarre, but today I tried pinning the flaps down and I’m digging the look. Gives the sweater a fun little asymmetric, slightly military flair.

Have you noticed the lack of snow? It’s been in the 40s for the past few days, bizarre for this time of year but a welcome respite. I’m sneaking in a few lightweight layers while I still can.

  • Ooh I really love the bolero! If you hadn’t told me, I wouldn’t have known that it wasn’t meant to be worn that way. Nice outfit 🙂

  • I actually really love the bolero worn like that – so asymmetrical and funky!

    Love it, for some reason this season, I’ve gone for blue, which normally doesn’t suit me. I’ve also gone a little nutty for plaid. Your outfit looks great
