outfit: keepin’ it simple.

ootd 2018-03-20 at 7.46.46 PM

This is what I wore to work today.  It’s been pretty cold lately (feels like 30 degrees). I’m wearing leggings under these pants, which is pushing it because they barely fit around the waist as is.  The cold forces me to wear socks. This really cramps my style, ha.  My feet want to breathe.  I can’t wait til it’s sandal weather once again.  Can you believe today is the first day of Spring?  Sure doesn’t feel like it.  We are going to have snow tomorrow in NYC.  So it looks like I will have to keep waiting.

PACT ended up accepting my request to return the “waterfall” cardigan in the previous post.  It was a hassle free interaction with their online form.  I went on the hunt for a replacement and settled on a simple cashmere cardigan by Marni (bought secondhand, of course).

I scrolled through so, so many crap cardigans online to finally find a good one. It’s amazing how terribly designed 99% of cardigans are out there.  So many of them look good on the front, but the back is ruined by a silk panel, color block, or lace embellishment. Why???!  Cardigans should be simple, understated, versatile, light, and comfortable.  Go nuts with your top, but keep it simple with the cardigans.  After all, it’s the garment we wear over and over again, with many different outfits throughout the work week.

Anyway, enough of me ranting. I will be working from home tomorrow and will have the rare luxury of wearing whatever the hell I want for a change.  So stay tuned and so glad you stopped by.

  1. Yay for the PACT return! It’s good that it was hassle-free. That ATM top looks great.
    I hear you on weird cardigans. Even though there are so many to choose from, it’s really difficult finding the right one that’s a good length and good material.

  2. I’m so with you on your cardigan thoughts. It’s one of the hardest pieces for me to find! Like, going back 12 years I have memories of hunting through racks of cardigans and the JCPenney with my mom, struggling to find what I wanted. Sometimes I wonder if I missed my calling as a fashion designer because there are so many very particular items I wish I saw in the world!


    1. I often wish I was a designer too. Or at least someone who could give advice about the designs to spare me all the work:). So many things seem like a no brainer and yet it’s not done.
