I was excited about this one because I think it looks cute and modern, but casual and comfy, too.
The hoodie is a light, cotton ribknit with extended bands on the sleeves and snaps up the front. The handwarmer pocket is kind of dorky, but it works okay. I tried a black Norma Kamali tank beneath it, but it didn't look right. The gray hoodie looked disembodied over it. So the tank is actually a charcoal gray heather. Shorts are black cotton with 1-inch bands around the legs (not tight at all), pockets, and a drawstring waist.
I first thought to just put these sandals with it. Seemed natural.
But I really wanted to wear these since I didn't get to wear them Sunday. They looked great, I think, and gave the outfit a little style. The dogs seemed to appreciate it anyway.
Jewelry: Simple silver posts. (Had to take them out after dinner because they started to itch my earlobes. Hypo-allergenic doesn't necessarily mean all-day wearable.
Overall: It was fun to feel comfortably stylish while I hung out at home, making up stuff. Faded Glory gray hoodie: $10; Norma Kamali Shorts: $10; Miley tank: $6; Norma Kamali flats: $20 Earrings: $5 (I think) Total: $51
Tuesday I was Field Trip Mom. Visited the DuQuion State Fairgrounds all day. Will let you know what I came up with tomorrow.
Next Week: Southern Festival of Books panel with fabulous thriller-writer chicks J.T. Ellison and Meredith Cole. First professional appearance in a Walmart ensemble. Nervous much?!
Thanks for hanging in there with me. Your support for this wacky project means a lot!
