Knits are your style friends. If you like wearing them, a collection of cozy tees, skirts, and dresses can become your unofficial “uniform” every day. Knits are friendly because they: are usually washable; don’t need ironing; come in a wide price range; and allow for fettuccini food-babies. Light to medium weight knits can be worn all year. And when they get tired, they make wonderful lounge clothes.

The first layer here, on a gorgeous Spring day, is a navy knit Eileen Fisher dress (thrifted, similar). The top layer is a super-soft tee I found at the Molly Mutt Thrift. It’s by Religion, and I found they’re a young women’s brand, on the pricey side. I can feel the quality in the cotton.
The bead necklace is thrifted, and vintage 70’s – 80’s. I like that it makes a horizontal line to play off the stripes on my sleeves. The black platform heels are thrifted, and by Gentle Souls. My hair is the Wiki by Ellen Wille.

YES to knits! And I like your tip about how they can become lounge wear if they get a little old or stretched out. 🙂
Love your knitted dress Patti! Hope you had a lovely Easter. Thanks for the linkup. Kisses

Thanks for the style advice re layering Patti – it’s not something I do much of, but you’re clearly at ease with it. Wishing you a lovely week ahead and thanks for the link up party!
such a fun mix and layering is the best. Totally changes the look
I love knits and I love how you styled yours here! Your shoes are FAB!!!
I love this outfit, Patti! You look so divine 🙂
I don’t often wear knit tops, as I’m more of a cardigan girl, but I’m sure they count as knitwear too! Love the sleeves on your tops, and extra long sleeves can be a godsend when it’s cold! xxx
The sleeves on your top are so fabulous, I love them.
I’ve only ever wore woolens under sufferance but it’s been so cold here this winter I’m starting to like them! xxx
I love that dress Patti. Reminds me of a Gucci trend post on www that I saw earlier today! xxx Thanks for hosting and wishing you a lovely week. I have been totally and thoroughly enjoying the laziest Easter holidays ever with Netflix, dog walks and delicious breakfasts with pancakes 🙂 Sabina
Fettuccini food babies…lol! You look beautiful as always my friend!
Love the blue on the you and how you styed the dress with layers. Id love a close up of your fabulous necklace, it looks so pretty!
Have a wonderful week!
I love knits for all the reasons you described. They are so comfortable! You look great!
This look is how to be super comfy and cozy while slaying it with style. Fabulous lady!
I love knits and I love long sleeves. There’s something cozy about the longer sleeves and comfortable fabric. Love this look!
Fettuccini food baby! Ah-hahahaha! I love the tie dye effect on the sleeves, Patti. So great!
Love those layers!
Have a great Monday!
Love this outfit Patti 🙂 Thanks for hosting.
Yeah, knits are definitely my friend too, and my favourite tops are ones that cover my hands, which is not always practical, but I love that look. Great T! Thanks for the linkup, Patti.
So cute on you!!! I have a hard time sometime keeping them form flattering for me—-I adore knits tho!!!
You look beautiful and unique! I love the play off the stripes! And I too wear my tired knit dresses at home! <3
You are right, light knits are fabulous. A lot of my students have these T-shirts that have extra long sleeves with a whole for the thumb. They are perfect for Alaska as they can prolong the time not to have to wear gloves or mittens. In Florida, they are perfect to protect the hands from the sun and from age spots. They are cool too. You look great in that shirt.
All knits, all the time ….! Looking pretty in blue, Patti!
Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
That blue is so pretty on you Patti! Love the layering on you and the hair looks fab!
I love that you added a sweater over the dress Patti!! So lovely!!!
Gentle Souls make wonderful shoes – I love those ones. Looking lovely in blue, Patti! Thanks for the “help me to understand this” tip – nice!
Happy Easter beautiful Patti xx
You’ve given me ideas on how to style some of the Eileen Fisher knits that have been waiting for some inspiration. I do love how the necklace reflects the stripes on the sleeve. As always you’re classic with a fabulous twist! ❤️
Knits are so versatile and cozy! You look so pretty in blue!
Thanks Andrea! I’m loving your “Madewell dupe” shirt, xo
Such an easy going and pretty outfit for the first day of Spring. For some reason, I don’t see the link…maybe it’s my computer today, don’t know.
thanks for the heads-up Terri! and you look lovely in a smart floral dress, xo
