The best part of running a local news website for two and a half years is that I became very good at coming up with story ideas that could be posted on a regular basis. When you’re expected to “write” seven stories a day about a town that’s, in total, four square miles (!), you have to. Monthly round-up posts are particularly the bomb, and are utilized by bloggers the Internet over.
And so, introducing: My favorite outfits, a round-up of the favorite things I wore from the previous month. Since I only really started writing again in A Homebody in earnest in March, you have to forgive the lack of outfit ideas. Also, forgive the crappy pictures taken with my iPhone. One of these days, I’ll figure out how my husband’s DSLR works. I am, however, quite proud of my Pinterest-inspired outfit staging!
If there’s a theme to how I dress right now, it’s easy: cardigans. Yay cardigans! They’re cute, they keep you warm, they go with everything, they allow you to wear sleeveless dresses and tank tops in 20 degree weather. They’re perfect. I should also probably cut back on them, but we’ll see how that goes. Here’s to hoping for more variety in April!
I saw on Pinterest somewhere that green and navy is a good color combo for spring. Hey! I have a green cardi and a navy blue tank top that I wear like every week … perfect!
This is the same pair of jeans from before because they’re the best pair of jeans on the planet. It’s got a tiny flair but they’re mostly bootcut. They’re not too long, not too short. And, get this, they’re the ONLY PAIR OF JEANS I’VE EVER WORN WHERE I DON’T NEED A BELT. That’s a big deal. This is also one of my favorite cardigans, the boyfriend cardigan from Target that I found while on a mad hunt for a long, yellow cardigan. J told me they don’t sell yellow clothes in the winter. I proved him wrong!
Dress: Urban Outfitters
Enter the yellow cardigan as well, this time paired with the uber cheap dress from the Urban Outfitters clearance section that really can’t be worn with anything other than tights and a cardigan. Because the top is getting a little saggy. And it’s pretty short. BUT, I love the bottom and the dark colors make it a great winter/fall dress.
