LATELY I'M FEELING // SWEATSHIRTS

one || two|| three || four || five || six || seven

it's like the air cooled down and suddenly all i can think about are sweatshirts. sweatshirts sweatshirts sweatshirts. gray sweatshirts. with raglan sleeves. there are zero embellishments allowed here. well, that little v stitched at the collar, that's kosher. (you know, a good stitched v is hard to come by.) i like to wear mine with the sleeves rolled haphazardly to about bracelet length, and now you know!

i put this little board together inspired by this outfit i wore the other day. you know how when you feel really great in something and it causes all of the atoms on the earth to align for you? your life on this planet suddenly makes sense and the secrets of the universe open. and you're not afraid to walk into bloomingdales that day because you don't feel like they're going to automatically know you don't belong there and give you funny looks.

maybe that's just me. 

i guess this fall is turning out to be a tomboy fall for me. i don't want anything colorful, i don't want anything pretty. i just want dark polish on my toes, super minimal jewelry, the kind of shoes you can kick some ass in, and a really great, simple leather bag. monogrammed.

  2. It's not just you.

    Those "I threw this on and MAAAAN do I feel good" moments are few and far in between, if you ask me. But when they happen? Yeah, it's a weird kind of magic. Good times.

    Sweatshirts are the shiz, and I have a preternatural love for all things raglan sleeve - tees, sweatshirts. It gives me the happies and I need to add a few more to my dwindling "collection" BECAUSE OF COURSE.

    You can't rag on raglan! ...or something. Snerrrrrk.

  3. I have been loving this fall "sweatshirt is fashion" trend lately. It makes my stay at home mom heart pitter patter just a little bit faster these days :)

    And is it just me or has forever 21 been killing it lately in the footwear department? so many I am loving!

  6. This is my go to outfit for the fall. I don't feel like standing in front of my closet and deciding, I just want to be comfy and still look presentable, add my favorite bracelet and go out on the streets. Yay for awesome sweaters.

  7. The perfect fall outfit for me - gray sweatshirt, comfy pants, warm socks and my Birks. Just seeing your outfit made me feel autumny!

  8. Fun fact: that stitched "v" on sweatshirts and such is called a 'dorito' :)

  10. I am so right there with you, Natalie. LOOOOVE sweatshirts right now. Only, the grey one I'm coveting right now has a fabulous Garance sketch on the front. And monogrammed simple bag, hello? I've had the navy Clare Vivier - with gold monogram, natch - on my Pinterest wishlist for-ev-er. Someday... I think a lot of it for me has to do with our upcoming move to hip Berlin, where I feel I need to urbanize my rather safe wardrobe just a bit.

    Thank you for sharing the Jimmy Fallon clip! Apparently I'm one of the few who missed it. I could watch his Brian Williams raps all day long.

  11. i highly recommend the old navy sweatshirt! it's like $15 and cozy. the men's is longer, the women's is more boxy. both good in their own right. glad i'm not the only one feeling sweatshirt-y. (i know)

  12. I'm loving that sweatshirts are having such a moment. I WANT ALL THE SWEATSHIRTS! And I'm totally with you. I don't want an embellishment--unless, of course, stripes count. Then I'm all in. ;)

  14. I just bought THE most amazing sweatshirt from a company called The West is Dead. Like really, I want to wear this sweatshirt all day, everyday. My husband is going to have to pry it off me this fall. I highly recommend it...

  15. I ♥ Alicia Paulson. (and that Mimi of hers... does it make me a super goober that I cried when her first adoption didn't go through?)
    The boots are awesome. I need to find some that're like 15% as much $$$ though, ha ha.
