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

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.

What’s In My Closet

Not sure if I mentioned, but Dan and I closed on our house in September! We are undergoing major renovations and will move sometime in April BECAUSE I will be going to India in January for 3 months (for work). I know. Crazy, right? So between construction, the holidays and packing for India before stowing away all of my warm-weather wardrobe, I need to start packing up my belongs for the big move. First stop: my closet.

Cable Knit & Leather


I seriously need a vacation to recover from my vacation. Does anyone else ever feel like that? The task of unpacking three suitcases, doing a bazillion loads of laundry and clearing out 450+ work emails was exhausting. I felt like I was running on fumes from the lack of sleep thanks to Mr. jetlag. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things, including giving this blog some TLC.

I recently did a major closet purge, sending pieces to the consignment shop or goodwill. I took inventory of what was left hanging in my closet and realized that I have amassed quite a collection of button down tops. There’s something so easy and chic about throwing on a crisp button down paired with skinnies and pumps. The latest addition to feed my addiction is this oversized top, borrowed from the boys. Not only did the pinstripe panels catch my attention but the pockets led my finger to quickly click the ‘add to bag’ button. Let’s face it, pockets make everything that much cooler.
