Reader Style: Hayley’s Seriously Cool, Nursing-Friendly Sweater

Hayley

 

Gang, I was thrilled to receive a email from Hayley, who blogs over at Easy Style For Moms.  She had recently bought this gorgeous yellow sweater from an Etsy seller based in China.  I've had my eye on a few Chinese-based Etsy sellers (their designs are so interesting and unique yet amazingly affordable), but I haven't tried anything firsthand. Happily, Hayley was willing to share her thoughts about the process and the product. 

 I’ve always been drawn to clothing with a contemporary Asian aesthetic. These pieces are often layered, draped, and playful when it comes to volume and proportion.  It’s a look that feels very modern so when I discovered this long, draped sweater on Etsy, I just had to have it.  I purchased the sweater from Aolo, an Etsy seller based in China.  I had to wait two weeks after placing the order but my patience was rewarded when the package arrived. I had been concerned about the fit because it was only offered in one size but I’m more than happy with the way it looks.  This sweater is now easily one of the favorites in my closet.

    Great sweater, and a beautiful color on her! I’ve pulled some seriously amazing pieces from China recently, both were totally worth the wait! I’ve been getting lots of wear out of a sequined top that was a STEAL (I wore it to my boutique opening, an adults-only Christmas party AND a spring beach trip with the girls), and the cutest swingy “One Size” sundress. The fit is perfect on both. I’m usually far more impulsive with my buying – when I need something, I need it for an event I have coming up REALLY SOON.
    Along those same lines, I just listened to your podcast with The Happiest Home … OMG. My 20th High School Reunion is coming up too – this Summer or Fall I think – so this advice is spot on! I am literally taking notes. :) Can you do a blog post on your reunion so I can plagarize your look?!?
    Finally: YOUR VOICE! I have been reading your blog since literally 2010. Your voice is SO CUTE & I will now imagine it every time I read your blog. :)

    The cowl neck cardigan is so fantastic. I’m pretty sure I need it in my closet!
