Its November


Cozy V-Neck Sweater

Happiest Customers Say:


Plating: This is the most comfortable sweater ever. The v-neck isn’t too low & I like that because it doesn’t open up if I bend over. It's such a great price. It sheds a little when you first wear it, but it goes away with the first couple of wears.


Katie: I love this sweater. It is super soft and extremely comfortable. I get compliments every time I wear it. I lally dry it at home instead of dry cleaning it like you normally would with soft sweaters. It runs a larger size, so you’ll be fine.

Twotogo: I had held off on ordering because I wasn't sure a cardigan could live up to the hype. But somehow, it does. It's as soft as possible, and the neck retains body warmth. As some of the other reviews stated, I haven't had any issues with shedding. I was hoping to buy a few more if it goes on sale!

Kimmerly00: Bought as a Christmas gift, my review is crafted out of lust. It’s extremely soft and beautifully crafted, with the colors perfectly matching the stock photo. I had to wrap it quickly, fearing I would change my mind and keep it for myself.

Crmills: Love loves this top. I bought it as a flowy option after having a baby recently, but I will wear it beyond the post-baby months. It's comfy, comfy, the peek-a-boo back that people always compliment.


Monko: I bought this sweater in both colors and could not be happier. This sweater will look great with leggings or skinny jeans. I highly recommend this cozy and stylish sweater!!


Knit Tunic CASLON

CatalinaJoy: It has pockets I won't use (esp. Not for my cell phone), but I enjoy this sweater. It's long and compliments my long torso. I'm 5'4 and 155lb - true medium. I got this in small. The fabric seems like it will not pill easily - it's done well enduring my wrestling with my toddler's aI washable. I wish there were more colors.


LoveNavyBlue: I've been looking for a camel pocket tunic to pair with my black leggings and flats. It perfectly covers my butt. As reviews suggested, I purchased an S (usually an M), and I'm glad I did. The only drawback is that it arrived very wrinkled; I haven't pressed it yet.

RachelH9: I ordered this as my mom's early Christmas gift, and it feels like a dream!! It’s so soft and cozy. It’s comfortable and true to its size. I may have to borrow it from my mom or buy it myself!


Cheri68: This brand, Barefoot Dreams, was recommended to me by a fellow blogger. In the short time I’ve known about them, I have purchased two sweaters! This one is my favorite! I love the color (blue) & I love that it’s a duster. It is the softest material I’ve ever felt in a sweater! It’s like you’re wearing your favorite blanket! You can wear it with pj’s, to lounge in, or to wear out & about! Great purchase! You will not be disappointed! If you’re between sizes like me, you should size up.


Saturday Morning Cardigan

AvidFashionFan: I am so pleased to finally purchase this incredibly soft and cozy cardigan. I purchased the ivory color, so I expect to be able to wear it quite a lot. It is very soft, and the fit was not outrageous, as I have found some Free People items. I appreciated that Nordstrom had this item on sale for a fair price, and I received my order very promptly. Order this sweater. You won't regret your purchase!


Bativus1: This sweater is ADORABLE! The color is light mint, and it is so soft. Because Free People always tends to run big, I purchased the XS/S size. It still is oversized, but in a good way. The sleeves were long, and the sweater's back covered about half my bum. For reference, I am 5'7 and a 36B. I recommend this sweater for the upcoming fall nights!!
