If there is one blog I read religiously these days, it’s Grechen’s Closet. It’s funny — Grechen and I have very little in common other than the fact that we love shopping. We live in different parts of the country, have different family situations (aka she doesn’t have to factor breastfeeding into her wardrobe choices!), and have very different styles. And yet, I find myself drawn to her writing and willingness to talk openly about her life and her challenges.
Anyway, I love Grechen, but that’s not what this post is about. She recently decided to start putting together collages to showcase her outfits on days that she can’t take outfit photos. While she is good about posting OOTDs at least a few times a week, I am lucky to post them a few times a month these days — thanks to having to get two kids to daycare in the morning and not having anyone home to take my picture. Soooo…I’m going to take a cue and try to start posting some of my outfits in the hope of getting into a better routine.
This outfit has Winter Monday written all over it. Those of us in the Philadelphia area woke up last Monday morning to a lovely mess of snow/slush/ice. So, I put on the laziest, most comfortable outfit that I could get away with for work (which may having been pushing it), along with my newly-beloved Sorels. This cardigan was a Christmas gift, and it definitely falls under the category of “not the most flattering, but who cares because it’s so comfy.” Bonus: it’s long enough (don’t let the six foot tall model fool you) that I can wear it like a tunic and have no concerns over exposing my butt (I wore it completely buttoned). Which brings me to the next item of note here: while I VERY rarely wear leggings as pants, these are my go-to — I have two pairs in each black and charcoal. They’re nice and thick, but still really soft.
