Jeans for Work and Play
Happy Sunday, Style Nation! How is your weekend going? Mine's been fairly busy, considering I'm supposed to be resting up with a sinus infection. Woops. Above is what I wore to work on Friday. Just my typical bottoms + tank + cardigan combo. But it's easy, and it works.
Cardigan: Target (last worn August 1st)
Jeans: Old Navy
Necklace: New York & Company
Yesterday, Fella and I went to the Hideout Block Party here in Chicago. It was a gray, gloomy and rainy day until we left to head down there, but because of the weather (and the forecasted storms and hail), the Hideout had apparently scaled back on everything, not expecting a huge crowd. By about 8:00, they ran out of food, toilet paper, water for hand washing, and were rumored to be about out of beer. And speaking of beer, we waited in line for about 40 minutes for one! But despite all of that, it was really fun. We got to see Chicago blues singer Mavis Staples and Chicago's own Andrew Bird. That was our 5th time seeing him in the past 2 years, and he never disappoints.
Anyway, this is what I wore to be comfortable, warm and kind of fit in with the concert crowd. Have I mentioned before how tricky concert dressing is for me? I bought this peacoat-style sweatshirt jacket last year, and was very happy to find it while unpacking another box the other day. You can almost see the sequins on my t-shirt in this shot, but since I didn't actually take a picture of it, you can see it here. And my scarf has a giant hole in it because Meko thought it was a toy (I don't know how many times I have to tell my dogs that accessories, although fun, aren't toys!), but fortunately I was able to hide that and still wear it.
Jacket: Old Navy
Jeans: Old Navy
Sneakers: Converse (last seen on the blog on January 4th)
