Dressing Up Causal Fall Fridays

I love, love, love wearing a sweatshirt and jeans. Sometimes. Today was just one of those days, when I said, “Sweatshirt and jeans.” Fall is creeping in, the chilly mornings, the dry air blowing in. I love every second of it.

Believe it or not, a sweatshirt can be dressed up. Fancy sweats, as I like to call them have been around for a few years. Alexander Wang coined the current round of fancy sweatpants. And I’ve been seeing cashmere sweaters in sweatshirt styles, and sweatshirts made with greater quality. I  just want to keep warm you know! Yesterday, I picked up a striped sweatshirt on sale at Madewell, the thing I like about this is that it’s nicely constructed, and unlike knit sweatshirts I can wash it and know it’s not going to get those god awful bobbles/pills/lint/piling whatever they’re called.

Of course I had to dress it up, what better way than to add in a sparkly statement necklace, and a crisp pair of Rag and Bone skinny jeans. I think the beauty is in the details, and if you do it right, then you’ll be able to rock just about anything.


Oh yeah.. since experimenting with Sephora’s Chinese Blossoms nail patch art… I’m converted, put these on on Monday and they’ve held up nicely all week! Love the little flowers on my nails!
