Just a sweater and some leggings

Casual Clothes · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

So, I fully admit that I think I blew my entire plan to save money by not shopping when I went to the Moonfish Pop-Up shop earlier this year. You already saw my black top, jeans and necklace, but I also purchased this amazing sweater. Because, you see, when I told Sarah that I didn’t own anything to really wear with leggings she basically refused to let me leave without trying it on. And, of course, I loved it.

It’s so soft and cozy and….long. So, yes, it covers my butt. And, yes, I’m wearing leggings as pants. But, as I mentioned the last time I wore these leggings, they’re structured enough to feel like skinny jeans.

This sweater can also be worn off-the-shoulder, but that always feels kind of awkward to me. So, instead, I’m sticking with the cowl neck that is just slouchy enough to be comfy but not so crazy as to be overwhelming.

However, it turns out that my office at work cranks the heat near my desk when it’s cold outside! So, for once, I won’t necessarily be bundled up all winter. I’m sure, though, I’ll find enough opportunities to wear this sweater. I mean, wouldn’t you?

SIA: Tempest in a Hat

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall

I think I must still be in a food coma because I’m struggling with writing something interesting today. We celebrated Thanksgiving with my family and then Jason’s family so there was a bit of travel and a lot of food!

On Thanksgiving proper we were at my parents and, although I had a different outfit originally planned, I ended  up in my favorite black jeans and this cobalt blue top. And, true to form, it was only after I had it on that I realized it worked perfectly for this week’s Style Imitating Art choice.

And of course I had to borrow a hat from my mom since she had the perfect one sitting in her closet, unworn!

I also didn’t do any Black Friday shopping, although that’s not unusual for me. I think last year I bought a purse but that was it. This year? Nothing as of yet. And I’m totally okay with that. Instead, on Friday we went for a 3.5 mile walk, drank margaritas, and played Sequence.

Saturday we drove to Indianapolis to visit Jason’s family where I got in a 12 mile run before spending the rest of the day with them.

Now it’s back to the grind for a few weeks before I take a short vacation to Santa Fe, New Mexico and then celebrate Christmas!

Things I’ve worn 100 times

Casual Friday · Office Appropriate Outfits - Fall · Shopping

Don’t forget to enter the Moonfish giveaway!

I have this habit of wearing something 100 times right after I buy it because it’s foremost on my mind. Currently it’s either these flats or, since it’s gotten colder, these boots.

I enjoy buying shoes from Shopbop because they carry my two favorite brands: Sam Edelman and STEVEN. They even restocked my favorite Sam Edelman riding boots.

These jeans are also my favorite black jeans I’ve ever bought. Highly, highly recommended.

And, guess what? It’s all on sale, just in time for holiday shopping for yourself or someone else.

Sale ends 11:59 PM Pacific on Monday, 11/28

Last year during this sale I bought my leather cross-body tote bag. This year? I haven’t decided yet. I’m debating either another pair of the Sam Edelman flats because they are SUPER comfortable. Or maybe a pair of Sperry duck boots. Or maybe I’ll be generous and buy some Christmas gifts. Anything you want me to pick up for you?

All Moonfish, All the Time [Giveaway!]

Casual Clothes · Casual Friday · Shopping

Remember my post about how I finally found leggings that I would actually wear out in public thanks to Moonfish? Well, I finally  made it to a Moonfish pop-up shop and, let me tell you, they have so many other cute things and Sarah, the woman behind Moonfish, does a GREAT job of picking out items for you to try on that you probably wouldn’t have picked yourself but, once you have them on, you can’t imagine taking them off.

For example, the entire outfit I wore literally the day after I went shopping at the pop-up at Beermiscuous.

These jeans, you guys, These jeans. I want to wear them every single day. They are the best fitting pair of denim I currently own. Finally! Jeans that fit my waist AND my thighs. And they were around $100 which, yes, is more than Old Navy but for something I can wear all the time now? Yes, I want many, many more pairs.

Which is why I will be doing my best to attend the next Moonfish pop-up at the end of November.
