All Eyes On You

Firmoo Optical

Dan and I have been undergoing a major house renovation. In preparation for our move to the new place, we are packing up our 725 sq foot condo. While I was India, Dan’s responsibility was to sell off our furniture. He found a buyer for my dresser, which meant he had the tall task of clearing it out. So that evening, when I got home from work, I checked in with Dan. The first few sentences all started with, ” you have a lot of _____”. I’m sure you can fill in the blanks. But the one that took him by surprise was,” how many pairs of sunglasses do you have?!” I mean really, how many is too many (and please don’t answer this question)?

Camel Cable Knit

Guys. I did it. I finally broke the gray sweater spell! I swapped in this cozy, camel colored, cable knit sweater with¬†pockets.¬†I don’t know what it is about pockets, but slap it onto any piece of clothing and I’ll go ga-ga for it. So when my mother-in-law asked me if I wanted this never been worn hand-me-down, I gladly took it off her friend’s hands. Apparently, my MIL and her friends frequent a Vineyard Vines warehouse sale annually. Her friend bought this sweater for her daughter and it ended up being to0 small for her. Which means, it’s a total score for me!

Oversized Gray Sweater

In the words of Britney Spears, “Oops, I did it again”. I bought another gray sweater (like I did here & here). I just couldn’t resist. Oversized. Gray. Fleece-lined (like PJ’s!). Need I say more? And with all the craziness that was Black Friday, an added discount definitely sweetened the deal. This piece is perfectly cozy for those chilly Fall and soon to be Wintry days. It can be dressed down, as I did here, for a comfy casual weekend. But I bet this can work just as nicely in the office with a pair of fitted dress pants with heels or flats. Stay tuned for a Work It Wednesday post!

Happily Gray

Old Navy_Blank NYC_Keds_cover

I guess I have a thing for gray sweaters, as this makes #3 in the string of purchases I have made over the past month-ish. I can’t help myself. Gray is such an easy color to work with. It’s the perfect partner to any color and pairs well with any print. I opted to go with the latter, layering this cozy sweater with a plaid flannel to combat the brisk cold air. I threw on my, wait for it…..GRAY Keds and off we went to a Friendsgiving celebration. The only regret I had about this particular outfit was the lack of an elastic waist. I ate way too much and nearly had to unbutton my jeans. I know, so lady like.
