I'm such a sweatshirt girl. As soon as I get home, I change out of my 'real' clothes and into lounge-friendly clothes.

I have two sweatshirts that I got in Nantucket and I think they are my most-worn lounge item ever. I bought them a size bigger than I would normally wear so they're extra comfortable and they also have a very good lived-in feeling. However, they're not exactly the 'cutest'. Since they're a size big and they're just plain with the word 'Nantucket' on them, they feel a bit frumpy. I typically just wear them in my apartment/when I'm taking Henry out. But I probably wouldn't wear them when out running errands (here's a look at what I wear while running errands). 

With the weather hopefully going to be warming up soon, I wanted to find some cute crewneck sweatshirts that I can wear while running errands, lounging, and walking Henry. I have a lot of zip-ups and mock necks, but there is something so comfortable about a simple crewneck sweatshirt. 

The brand that inspired this post is The Great. It's made by a duo of women who are also behind Current Elliot. The Great is focused on simplicity and comfort while still being luxurious. They have a line of sweatshirts called 'The College' sweatshirt and I love the lived-in, comfortable look but it also still looks like something you could wear out in public. They also make matching sweatpants for lounge that look incredibly comfortable. However, their sweatshirts and sweatpants are almost $200/each. I'm all for spending on a quality, classic item, but I just don't think a cotton sweatshirt and sweatpants is necessarily worth that price regardless of quality... what do you guys think? It would certainly be quite an indulgent purchase, at least for me! 

So today, I've rounded up some affordable sweatshirts that are cute and under $100! Scroll through the widget above to see more of my favorites! My two honorable mentions that are over $100: this classic navy and white striped sweatshirt, and this tennis sweatshirt

Love the peplum hem sweatshirt! It would be so easy to dress it up with a statement necklace when you're out and about.
