Post-Christmas Greens

Casual Clothes · Casual Friday

I hope everyone is enjoying the end of their year! This is the first time in six years that I haven’t had the week between Christmas and New Year’s off and trying to fit in all the things I  used to do during that time is….interesting. I was so spoiled!

Anyway, I had a great time celebrating Christmas with my family and thankfully my stomach bug cleared up so I was able to eat whatever I wanted. Which is why I was grateful for this incredibly comfy sweater.

I bought this sweater on a whim at Old Navy one day and hadn’t really worn it much. But when I layered it over a white tank top I never wanted to take it off.

This outfit isn’t particularly ground-breaking or anything but it’s a good example of my casual style. Also, I’ve really been into vests this winter. And sweaters. But, I mean, winter in Illinois means sweaters.

It also means gifts. How’s that for a segue? I’m hoping to get my usual budget/gift post up this week (I know. You’ll just die without it.) but remember that previously mentioned no time off work? Yeah.

Maybe I’ll put it up on New Year’s Day when no one’s reading anyway 🙂

    Hooray Old Navy! I blew half my Christmas money at Old Navy on the 26th haha. They have so many great sweaters this year! I haven’t worn a vest in years–they make me think of elementary school, so I’ve shied away from them–but they seem to be really popular again. I almost pulled the trigger on getting one from Old Navy…and then I didn’t. Haha. Story of my unambitious fashion life 😛

    (And for what it’s worth, I think it’s stupid to not have this week off. I’ve never had this week off work, but no one seems to be in work mode at all, either here or at any other office. I think this whole week should be a national holiday with work cancelled for everyone haha)

    That army/olive green is such a big color right now! You’re rocking it. And when it’s from Old Navy, aka you didn’t spend an arm and a leg to look fabulous, that’s always a good thing. Happy New Year!
