My archives tell me that I haven’t done a style post since November. It’s time to dust off this little corner of the blog, especially now that I have a few new things. I really wanted to put together an outfit with my jean jacket. I’ve had it for close to ten years, and I used to wear it almost every day, but it has been languishing in my closet for a while now. Time for a comeback!
I was having trouble finding the right shirt when my husband suggested that I try one of his. It was perfect–just the look I was going for, long and billowy, fresh and crisp. We have all heard of boyfriend jeans, but I give you…the husband shirt! I used to wear big button downs like this one all the time when I was in grad school (cinched with gigantic, gigantic belts), and a part of me misses those days–there’s not much that is more comfortable than an oversized shirt.
The rest of the outfit is from my regular thrifted wardrobe. The purple jeans are a fairly new addition, but I think I might actually be able to subtitle this blog “Girl in Red Shoes with Yellow Purse.” What can I say, I love them!
It was 80 degrees this weekend–totally too warm for this jacket! (If you are somewhere frigid, and you are jealous, just bear in mind that I am also jealous of you!) Hopefully we’ll get back to some more chilly weather soon. I am probably the only person in LA longing for wind and cold days, but I am just not done with winter yet.
