We’ve all heard the phrase “Sunday Best” and, don’t get me wrong, I am all about dressing up whenever and wherever. But usually, Sundays are a detox day. There’s sleeping in and eating breakfast until noon in pajamas, and maybe getting out for some groceries or shopping for random goodies (for me, lately, it’s nail polish). That’s what this weekend was about. I won a couple bucks at the casino the night before, and decided to stock up on some new nail shades and a little brush for making dots and lines. But that’s besides the point.
I decided to wear something trusty and super comfortable. Enter this outfit. The shoes (you’ve seen them before here) are the newest piece of this puzzle. Everything else has been around for about a year, and will stay in my wardrobe for as long as they stay in tact.
Jeans, tee, drapey sweater…can’t go wrong. No siree. The sweater was a pretty cheap find at TJ Maxx (I want to say 10 dollars), but the tee is American Apparel. While I like a lot of American Apparel items, I HATE the prices. I can get a v-neck for 10 bucks or under at any store anytime. However, they totally end up being worth it. They last forever, and get better with wear. (I have an acid wash tee that’s been to London and back. The little holes and tears that have accumulated over time have just made it more loveable.)
When I wear an outfit as simple as this, I like to throw a little accessory in the mix. I recently got this Russian Doll necklace at Claire’s for less than 5 bucks. It opens. It occurred to me later that maybe there was once something inside it (like maybe a smaller doll charm, since that’s the Matryoshka way), but it was on sale. So I shan’t complain.
I also wanted to use this post to show off my new Fall-to-Winter jacket, an anorak from Target. I’m slightly obsessed. I’ve never been good at adapting to the cold weather change/buying sweaters or long-sleeved shirts or coats. But when I saw this, I knew I had to have it. I tend to wear longer shirts and layers, so the length was important (This mullet-esque sweater would not look good under a cropped jacket, in my opinion). The inside is a beautiful and cozy warm flannel. I love the drawstring, which allows me to look like a have a bit of a figure under the bulk, and the hood has a detachable fur trim. Worth every penny.
Never mind my Barry Gibb hair in the top post. I’d blame it on the wind, but I am in desperate need for a cut.
