30 for 30: day 19 + day 20

day 19

Cobalt & ikat.
And gray.
And dots.
And tassels.

So we have a bit of print-mixing going on here, but from a distance. And lots of neutrals, broken up by a fair amount of cobalt. Not my favorite look from this collection of 30 outfits (“collection.” sounds so fancy.), but not bad, either. Perfect for work, then seeing a girlfriend and playing closet. Then rolling on in to my parent’s house well after midnight…YOLO?

day 20

This sweatshirt dress is such a favorite of mine (maybe most favorite?). The color, the fit, the warmth, the fact that I can easily dress it up or down, wear it with tights or leggings and boots, or bare legs and sandals.

However, as with all dresses, I find it difficult to style it differently (almost) every time I wear it. It’s not that I’m opposed to wearing the same outfit over and over again, but I do like to challenge myself to find new ways to wear my clothes. Then I can really maximize the use/wearing of items in my closet. I do this by changing out my shoes, accessories, jewelry, layers, and bags.
Sometimes I’m more successful than others.

All of that to say, I’m about stumped on ways to wear this dress differently than I already have – I’ve done sandals, tights and boots, and almost every scarf that would look decent with this all navy dress. Any more ideas?

Just in case I haven't made it clear before, I love my Frye boots and wearing them with dresses or skirts. Without tights. It feels so sassy and fun. And almost like I'm getting away with something - like cheating winter and its subsequent snow and gross weather.

It DOES help to wear a warm dress when foregoing tights in winter - this sweatshirt dress from J. Crew Factory has a great fleece-y lining, and since it's such a nice basic color, pairs with just about any scarf in my closet.

Comfy in Pink


                     *he wanted his feet in the picture, too

I wore this on Friday to work. I thought about wearing something else (a bit dressier) but then I remembered it was Friday. And Fridays are the beginning of the weekend. So leggings & a sweatshirt-dress-type-thing it was!

Right after our "photoshoot," we went out for dinner at a local Cajun place, Mo Betta Gumbo. SO. GOOD. I got a Buffalo Shrimp Po' Boy, and my Mr. got Jambalaya. We were both very impressed, and will definitely eat there again.

See my "shadow" in almost every picture? He never strays too far from me on a walk. And our chic-a-dee isn't pictured, as she was stuck like glue to my photog.
