Weekend Wear

Photos by Sarah

In this outfit:
Vintage Sweater: From Veronika
Plaid top: J.Crew sale (2010)
Jeans: Madewell sale (2010)
Bag: Vintage Coach / Thrifted ($5)

Where I wore it: Antique shopping

Ever since Veronika gave me this sweater on my trip to visit her, I've been wearing it non-stop. As much as I love being able to dress-up for work, on the weekends- especially in fall and winter- all I want to wear are jeans and something comfy up top. In fall and winter, I gravitate towards men's flannel shirts, oversize sweaters, and boots (if you couldn't tell already, I've been living in these Matiko boots from Lulu's, too).

As much as I think it might be nice to be the kind of person who gets all turned out on the weekends, I don't think I ever will be. Not that I plan to show up at the grocery store in my pajamas anytime soon, but at my core, I love to be comfortable- I need to be able to move in what I'm wearing, I don't like to be slowed down. You can count on finding at least a couple pairs of back-up shoes in my car, an extra pair of loafers hidden beneath my desk, a hair elastic always within arms reach.

There's one more week to enter the Lulu's giveaway!

I hear ya! On my days off like today I need comfort for running errands and cleaning. I'm wearing jeans, a tee and a herringbone American Apparel sweatshirt I thrifted which so cosy. I'll probably change later for an event I'm going to but for now this is the perfect outfit for my day off. Hope your week is going well! That sweater is beautiful!
