I wore this outfit over the weekend.
I’ve worn this sweatshirt at least twice a week since I bought it back in March. Before I posted this, I had to scroll through my outfit posts to make sure I haven’t worn the exact same outfit here before. To my surprise, I had never worn this exact combination. By the end of the day, I noticed coffee stains on both sleeves and in the middle of the sweatshirt. With a little spot treatment with some Shout stain remover and a 24hr soak before putting it in the washer, the stains were 100% gone. I’ve had pretty good luck with using Shout stain remover. I think the key is to let it sit for a long time and then let it soak overnight.
My other ATM sweatshirt, the striped cotton-cashmere-silk blend knit one, is another frequent flyer, and for some reason, I have never needed to wash it. I’ve worn it maybe 10x now without ever washing and it still smells totally fresh, even in the armpits! And this is without wearing a base layer T-shirt. It’s so strange because all my other sweaters get a little bit stinky after a few wears. Maybe something about the fabric composition is able to resist holding onto odors even when compared to other 100% natural fibers. There’s probably some marketing angle that could be had here!
Did anyone catch the Prince Harry – Markle wedding? The BF and I watched it on Saturday afternoon. We fast forwarded through the boring parts. I watched it mostly for the fashion to be honest, but to my surprise I actually shed a tear when it became clear Prince Harry first laid his eyes on her. I guess I’m a bigger softy than I thought. It was cute how visibly nervous he was before she arrived. He seemed much more at ease when she was finally there. What was he worried about? That maybe she wouldn’t show up?! Or was it just anticipatory anxiety/excitement? I thought her dress was really elegant and subtle. I might have wanted a little more embellishment myself, but that veil really made up for it. And Prince Harry’s uniform was really badass, especially since it was all black. Yohji Yamamoto would approve.
In any case, it was all so cute. I loved all the fascinator hats too. We should bring back hats people! Everybody looks better with hats, men and women. I’ve never been a hat person myself, but I’ve always wanted to wear them regularly. I probably don’t because I’m not comfortable with standing out from the crowd too much and wouldn’t want to be known as the “hat lady”, but I’d definitely wear them if everyone else wore them regularly. A while back, I bought a Brooks and Boswell hat that was gorgeous but it didn’t fit my large head and to be honest, it would stand out too much in my neighborhood, so I wouldn’t have worn it much in real life. It was one of those things I’d only wear in theory.
How about you? Do you wear hats or would you like to wear them more often but don’t? And what did you think of Markle’s wedding dress?
