I’m the Web Manager at Royal and Reese, so that means I see tons of new product, daily. Although I work from home in Nashville, TN, I absolutely love going to
Royal + Reese headquarters! Not only do I get to see all the lovely ladies that keep us a well oiled machine, I get to see brand.new.product—right out of the box! I’m extremely picky with clothes, and I won’t buy something unless i know that I’ll wear it a bunch. So, for this blog post, I’m going to recap my FAVORITE sweaters that are in the shop right now; the Bryant and the Nordic Wrap, so read on and I’ll tell you why I can’t live without either of these.
When I was at R+R a few months ago, I ran back to our ‘inventory’ corner with my sidekick, Jaiden Marie. We opened a box and inside were the black Bryant Sweaters! Immediately, I had Jaiden invoice me…and I’m OBSESSED! I get compliments whenever I wear it! The Bryant Distressed Sweater has a thick knitted look with a dropped shoulder and a frayed v-neckline. In addition, the sleeve cuffs have distressing at the end and the bottom hem has triangular shape scalloped edges, with lots of distressing. The bottom hem comes in ever so slightly, making sure that it fits just a little closer (which I love because I hate when sweaters feel like a Liberty Bell on me haha—bowing out at the bottom).
I wear the Bryant off of my right shoulder, paired with my black (drumroll please), CHER BRALETTE! I’m a 36D and I fit in the medium Cher and I love how the straps look so dainty peaking from the top of my Bryant. I also pair my sweater with the black Katrina jeans that we have in stock. The Katrina’s have distressing only in the knees, for more of a subtle look. To top it all off, I wear this entire outfit with the Kings of Summer booties in camel. (To give my outfit a small pop of color). If I accessorize, I wear my wide brim fedora in camel along with silver jewelry. Hands down, my most favorite outfit of all time!
Now, onto the Nordic Wrap. I was skeptical at first when all the girls began ordering these. There was no way that this sweater lived up to all it’s hype, but BOY, was I DEAD wrong! This sherpa style sweater is the best thing, since sliced bread! It’s everything you dreamed it would be: cuddly, plush and soft! The Nordic Wrap is lightweight to the touch, and has fitted sleeve cuffs that gather closer to the wrists with an insanely soft bodice. It has an open enclosure, with large lapels that work their way into a hood, and large front pockets. It’s perfect for lounging around the house or throwing on last minute before you head out the door. The Nordic Wrap comes in a tote style, zipper storage bag that you can use to store the sweater in OR use for other things.
So, head to royalandreese.com and buy one of these two sweaters, now! You’ll be obsessed, I promise… and I may just be sitting here writing this… in my Nordic Wrap. Happy Sweater Blog Day!
