I got a bazillion compliments on this sweater, but Jill gets ALL the credit. She saw it on another blogger, ordered two sizes and offered the other to me. Umm, YES PLEASE. It looks like chain mail armor, but it’s a cotton sweater coated in silver paint.
I had forgotten about these shoes, until a few days ago when a student randomly said,”I like your sparkly* shoes that look like Vans.” I was very confused, explaining I had a LOT of sparkly shoes, but then realized he meant these herringbone sneakers. Why DON’T I wear these more often???
So, I’m wearing sneakers, a loose sweater with a light cotton top, and glorified leggings with pockets (Don’t judge me, I washed them!). Throw in some serious jewelry, and I call this successful undercover jammies.
*I would not consider these sparkly – hence my confusion – but the herringbone has a slight metallic shine to it. You can sort of see little reflection dots if you zoom in.
I was warned that the other couple we had dinner plans with were coming “very casual”. That was fine with me, since I spent the first half of this Saturday barfing up the Old Fashioneds I had the night before (NEVER AGAIN.).
I tossed these jeans back on, and immediately grabbed for this favorite burnout sweatshirt that hasn’t gotten much play recently. I threw a bunch of sparkly jewelry on – including this ooold Gap necklace with flannel plaid that ties into a bow in the back. The red boots added a pop of color, and kept the jeans from dragging on the soggy ground outside.
