Floral sweatshirt

Sunnies: Tom Ford | Necklace: Banana Republic (option) | Sweater: JCrew (cheaper option, cheapest option)  | Top: JCrew Factory | Bottoms: Express (optionoption, option)  | Booties: Vince Camuto (option

The sweatshirt has really been revamped over the last couple of seasons. My love for the fancy sweatshirt started with the Target collaborations. I accumulated 3 that way, and have never looked back. Let's face it. They're comfortable, but the different graphics, textures, and materials available now give modern twists on an old school shape.

I wore a modified version of this outfit this past weekend in DC for brunch, mani/pedi, and sight seeing. Because my suitcase has limited real estate, I switched the booties for this grey pair, simply because I didn't want to have to bring another pair of shoes. It's good that I  made the switch because we were basically on our feet all day.

Jacket: Express | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (option) | Boots: Naturalizer (option)

The husband and I were romping around DC with my friend Val and one of her good friends, Nick. We all laughed when we met Saturday morning in the hotel lobby since we clearly all got the memo on the colored pants. I had to make sure we got photo documentation of this awesome coincidence!

    1. We seriously laughed out loud when we saw each other. Too bad the husband doesn't own burgundy pants nor will I ever be able to convince him he needs them!!!

  5. Hilarious that you were all wearing such similar pants!! That sweatshirt looks way more dressy than one would think considering it's a sweatshirt. I think so much of that is due to your styling. Love the gingham shirt peeking out the bottom. :)

    1. Thanks! The gingham shirt hasn't gotten as much use as I thought it would - by my own fault. It instantly adds a little something to an outfit like this!
