Easy Going

In this outfit:
Jacket: Barbour/ Thrifted ($6)
Sweater c/o Spotted Moth
T-Shirt: Madewell ($14 sale, old)
Jeans: Madewell Hi-Riser (old)
Boots: Jeffrey Campbell
Necklace: Black Sparrow (gift)

Where I wore it: To the office!

On a Monday morning after a relaxing-yet somehow really busy- weekend spent in jeans and moccasins, the last thing I want to do is wrangle myself into a constricting outfit. This is where an easy bun (to hide my unwashed hair), jeans, a pair of favorite boots, and over-size anything comes in.

Chris and I found this Barbour jacket on our trip home this summer, and after it sadly didn't fit him, it became the perfect over-sized jacket for me. Along with my small collection of mens flannel shirts and sweaters, I've started to amass quite a few mens jackets as well. They're perfect for layering.

In other news, words have not been coming easy for me lately.

I've said it before, but I'm pretty sure your 'easy' outfits are always my favorites. This is pretty much what I want to live in year-round (and I'm SO glad it's cool enough for layers again!)

You pull off that top knot so beautifully. And words often do not come easily for me, either...maybe not a good thing, since I'm a writer ;)

I am in love with the way you twisted up the front of your hair! Perfect for days where I don't feel like having my bangs dangle in my face all day.
