Outside of work and occasions, I am a fan of casual, easy-to-wear styles — as seen by my many posts of casual outfits (example, here | here | here) on my blog and also by quick snaps of OOTD on my Instagram. However, I used to not be the biggest fan of distressed T-shirts.
Recently, I saw a T-shirt in one of my most favorite colors, pastel purple, or lavender/lilac on Forever 21. The color alone almost sold me. Because you are reading this post, this obviously means I went ahead and bought it. Besides the color, the price point was good enough to warrant a low risk purchase. Plus it would be a fun challenge to see if I can incorporate it into my wardrobe.
These quarantine times are weird. I pretty much roll out of bed and roll to my desk :). Some days I would take walks around the neighborhood to avoid the cabin fever. Do I go out in leggings or in more dressed clothes?
Truth be told, during these social distancing times, I go out more in leggings and sweatshirt for a quick walk or running. But putting an outfit together could be exciting and separates the stay-at-home from outside-the-home time, giving variation to the routine.
A quick post on what I wore while visiting Chicago for a quick weekend getaway. Light weight, easy care, and comfort are typically what I go for for these types of trips.
I first mentioned this coat in my Black Friday shopping post here. When J.Crew first came out with their Chateau Parka coat in Italian stadium-cloth wool, I fell in love with it. The idea of a medium length and clean A-line cut anytime coat with an easily hidden zip closure, a high neck, and multiple pockets is perfect!
It took me a hot minute (more than a minute in all honesty) to sit down and write this post. I have been absent from blogging for some time. It was on my mind the whole time but I could not find the time or the energy after all the commitments I had and from constantly getting sick (colds, anyone?) this winter.
