Reese Witherspoon’s boots & sweater-dress ensemble: super-cute & adorable?

Reese Witherspoon gave birth about five weeks ago, and these are photos of her yesterday in LA. Doesn’t she look awesome? I mean, this (awesome!) sweater dress hides a lot of things, and I’m not saying that Reese has magically lost all of her baby weight, but I do think she looks amazing. She lost some of the baby weight, and she’s dressing accordingly while still maintaining her very cute soccer-mom style. Maybe I’m just enchanted by her outfit here. This is how I used to dress when I was in college – oversized sweater with a mini, black tights and some kind of clunky boot or shoes. This was my look, y’all. And I still love this look.

Reese hasn’t been shying away from the cameras since giving birth, which is what I like to think of as The Jennifer Garner Method. Reese still hasn’t done a photo shoot with her newborn son (Tennessee James Toth!), nor has she done a “oh, hi paparazzi!” candid shoot with the baby either. But like Jennifer Garner, Reese has been photographed consistently by the paps since giving birth, and I can’t help but feel like all of these photos add to her “I’m just a mom who happens to be a movie star, I’m just like you!” vibe.

Sigh… I love this outfit. I need to start dressing like this again. It’s a good look, and it’s comfortable too. Is Reese wearing any kind of skirt under the sweater, or is the sweater meant to be a for-real sweaterdress? Deep thoughts, I know. Considering the sweater has pockets, I think it’s a dress. Oh… wait… are these leggings instead of tights like I assumed? F—k it, I’m not going to rewrite this post!!

    Slow news day huh?

    The outfit is fine and post-baby appropriate but it’s rather boring no?

    • RobN says:

      I don’t think it’s boring at all. I think it’s a cute and casual look for doing errands; it’s not like she wore it to the Golden Globes.

  2. Lin234 says:

    She’s so lucky she has thin legs that photograph well no matter what weight she’s at or how tall she is. It makes her look a lot slimmer. Wish I had her legs!

  3. Dani says:

    THOSE BOOTS! wantttttttttttt

  4. Cathy says:

    I don’t care for the boots. But otherwise I like the look of the outfit.

  5. Meagan says:

    The sweater is J. Crew if anyone wanted to know! Sorry, I work there and I get excited when I see celebrities wearing it because I can say I have the same thing. Seriously, best sweater ever.

    I love Reese’s style. Always so put together but never try hard or frumpy.

  6. MG says:

    She looks great! I love the boots and purse! Can anyone tell who the designer of that purse is?

  7. Veritas says:

    Still a little chunky but she’s getting there. :-)

    She’s wearing the leggings perfectly (her butt is covered).

    Here in Boston, I have seen about 3 dozen girls in the past few days wearing leggings with short tops. Leggings are NOT shorts! Wear them like you would tights.

    • Apples says:

      Oops. Meant to say-not pants.

      Why is the mobile version of this website not allowing me to edit my post now?

    • ebraca says:

      Seriously. Worked on Boylston for awhile and the Back Bay had a serious case of legging camel toe. I live in Providence and with the all the universities in the city and prep schools, it’s also an epidemic.

      I agree with leggings should be treated like tights front and back bum should be covered.

      • Apples says:

        Ha ha, it IS an epidemic here. So many college girls in competition with each other. Then that trickles up to the older girls wanting some of the attention. Yikes.

    • Mean Hannah says:

      Uh. I first noticed the leggings-as-pants in 2005 when our interns and new assistants were told they can be more casually dressed at the office and that’s what they all wore! Without covering their butt cracks and see through thongs and camel toe! Why is this still going on?

    • the original bellaluna says:

      THANK YOU, Apples! I came here to say “See, ladies who wear leggings with tucked-in t-shirts or short tops? THIS is how it’s done!!” :D

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Apparently this is a CHRONIC problem out here because I notice this ALL THE TIME (I live in Bean too) and it makes me nuts.

      Also, chicks wear leggings with thongs to work out. In exercise class. Do you know how much is seen that cannot be unseen when chicks wear see-through tights? I just don’t get it-why not just wear a thong and nothing else because that’s basically the same shit. Get some proper full-coverage running capris for f*ck’s sake.

      • Apples says:

        Ug, I know! I’ll say that the expensive, microfiber leggings are better able to hide…the business. But, a lot of the leggings are basically transparent outside in the sun. I don’t think these girls realize how much is showing. Even on the best bodies, it is strangely unflattering.

    • Kimlee says:

      I live in PA and its the same problem, I blame Christina Aguilera. Lol

  11. Green_Eyes says:

    She looks great & dressed appropriately. She’s a mom running errands and looks happy & healthy at that!

  12. Mrs.Darcy says:

    @Meagan – so is it a sweater not a dress? Not that it matters, she’s so tiny she can work it like a dress. I am really in the market for a sweater dress tunic thing at the moment, I would need one a bit longer than this though.She looks great, I think the more petite you are the easier it is to pull off this kind of thing though.

    • Meagan says:

      Yes, it supposed to be an oversize sweater. I’m 5’4 and it covers my butt so I can get away with wearing just leggings underneath. H&M has some really cute sweater dress/tunics so definitely check them out! Not the greatest quality, kinda itchy, but cute and affordable. Banana Republic and Old Navy has some really great ones too.

    • it'sjustblanche says:

      If you don’t mind dropping a little bit, Eileen Fisher has one. Not at all frumpy, very versitile. I tried it on and it overwhelmed me, but I’m super short so for someone of average height or higher, it would be perfect.

  13. Jay says:

    This is one of my go-to looks: tunic/sweater-dress, black tights, boots (I own like five pairs :D ). So naturally, like you, I love seeing it on others.

  14. ladybert62 says:

    (1) I dont call that a dress
    (2) She needs something longer or a pair of pants
    (3) She is a cutie and I like her

  15. JPC says:

    She’s beautiful but I’m not digging one thing about this outfit. Ugh.

  16. Allie May says:

    ANOTHER post kissing Reese Witherspoon’s ass?? Why?? I have heard her say VERY FEW kind things about other celebrities/semicelebrities, and have heard a lot of unkind comments coming out of her mouth. I will not write more, my blood pressure is going sky high. If we must kiss a celebrity’s ass, can we PLEASE make it someone more kind and thoughtful, for God’s Sakes??

    I’ve been wearing sweater dresses and leggings since early 80′s. There terrific for any occasion. Glad to see the suburban girls finally catching on to style. I was “GLARED” at from them for wearing this.! Even called a slut.
