Sunday, Jan 1 - Church
Outfit Details: Calvin Klein brown wrap sweater (old/I think thrifted), Madewell jeans (new/thrifted), Sam Edelman brown "suede" boots (new/TJ Maxx)
One thing I've finally accepted is that my body is really bad at moderating it's own temperature, so thick sweaters (that aren't cardigans) are tricky for me, as I just get really hot too easily. This sweater is a great compromise, because it's on the thinner side, but is really wide, so there is a lot of fabric I can cuddle up in if I need to. It also has a wrap front, so it has air flow. Madewell is my go-to jeans brand now, and I just got three new-to-me pairs from Thredup. It's great to find a brand that fits well, and it makes it a lot easier to buy them online (both I know the fit will work, and it's really easy to filter out the jeans by size/brand and just look at the few that show up). A final note about this outfit - I very rarely wear brown, especially not a cool-toned brown, but I've come to realize I think it actually looks good on me (more so than the caramel/tan brown I typically wear). It's basically a softer version of the black that I wear every other day. :)
Monday, Jan 2 - Stayed at home
Outfit Details: Merona black long-sleeve tee (old/Target), Madewell jeans (new/thrifted), Guatemalan hand-woven scarf (last year/Guatemala), Birkenstock clogs (old/Amazon)
Nothing too exciting to say here. This is a classic easy stay-at-home outfit.
Tuesday, Jan 3 - Worked at home
Outfit Details: Liz Claibourne striped tunic (old/JC Penny), Joe's Jeans jeans (oldish, Rue La La)
Another basic outfit. Joe's Jeans is my other brand that I love, and this was another case of me ordering a similar pair online to what I already owned, so I knew they would work.
Wednesday, Jan 4 - Worked from home, met with friends
Outfit Details: J. Crew navy/tan striped turtleneck (new/online), Madewell jeans (new/thrifted), Saucony navy sneakers (old/Zappos?)
A few years ago I banned drop shoulders from my wardrobe, but I'm slowly adding them back in, as I realized it's really the drop shoulder + loose sleeves combo I don't like. I think a set-in sleeve does look better on me in general, but if the sleeves are tight, I can get away with the drop shoulder. It's all a matter of knowing the specifics of what isn't working.
