Sweatshirt – The House8 Style Company

The minute I got this sweatshirt, I immediately thought of pairing it with a pencil skirt. Most people tend to wear theirs with jeans or joggers but that’s so clichè. What’s the point if we cant be creative with this thing called ‘Fashion’ right?

I must confess that it’s a size or two bigger than what I would normally wear and waiting to fix it might take forever, and I had time to shoot the look, so I decided to fold in the lower band and belt it causing that peplum effect. Picking this skirt was a no brainer as it compliments the colors on the sweatshirt.

I’m pretty excited it’s been raining because the heat we have been experiencing is worse than the worst nightmare you’ve ever or will ever have. (Point made?) and it gives me the opportunity to wear cool pieces like this one.

We all have different sense of style so I’d like to read your thoughts on how I styled this outfit and how you would style yours.

  1. I never would have guessed it was a sweatshirt! I’ve been seeing the picture on your Instagram profile pic and waiting for the post, it was worth it. I like the combination of blue and yellow and now that I’ve finally gotten a yellow blouse, blue pants coming up next yo!

  2. Hrmph!

    Gracey the chicken! (???? for emphasis) You could have tried to wear it over-sized na! Come over to the oversized side!

    I do love the colours- it makes for a creative styling. Nice pictures, love the location.

    Love the quote BTW. “Gracey” seems to suit you ????. (P.S: Don’t kill me because of the chicken thing please)

  3. Hi Grace,

    Pretty lady! I love this look. The colours are so vibrant. I agree with you, fashion should be able to push the envelope sometimes. I like how you paired it with a pencil skirt, very lady like. The belt adds a nice touch.

    Knowing myself, I would have gone the clichéd route and paired it with light-weight joggers but with strappy sandals for a dressy feel.

    Ah! Thank God for the rain, the heat has been unbearable.

    Enjoy the rest of the week.

    1. Hi June.
      Unfortunately, the sun isnt done with us yet. Sorry about the song playing without your consent. It can be paused if you rather not have it playing while reading.
      Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Wow! Nice. Had to take a 2nd look to confirm that it’s a sweatshirt.
    Love the colors. Love the combo.

    For me, jeans & sandals and off I go.

  5. Would have never figured it was a sweatshirt, love the way you styled it. Just got blue pants yesterday time for the yellow shirt lol

  6. Your sandals are calling my name oh!looks really comfy????Yellow is one colour that scares me but it looks so good on u. I wouldn’t have guessed the top was a sweatshirt coz of the peplum effect. Great styling.

  7. Style is a personal expression. I like how you styled the sweatshirt. Weirdly, it is exactly how I’d have worn it too!

    Sweatshirt + pencil skirt + belt.

    Perfect combo, Gracey. 🙂
