Fashion Over Reason: Weekendwear

There's womenswear, menswear, outerwear... I hereby proclaim there should also be weekendwear. Not in a sloppy velour Juicy Couture sweat suit kind of way, but in a casual, tasteful, easy attire manner. Let's make weekendwear official! So as you can tell, my getup below isn't exactly high fashion, far from it. But I've been struggling to get back on the health train (which explains my ghostly grin), it's about -100 degrees (in both Celsius and Fahrenheit at this point) and the primary motivation while getting dressed is layers, layers, layers. I took two pieces that generate a lot of heat: 1) a cashmere button down shirt (disclaimer: I shamelessly stole it from my husband) and 2) an oversized wool grandpa cardigan -- the combo kills two birds with one stone in terms of warmth and adding a little flair. My pompom hat and old school hand-crafted Canadian moccasins do the rest. In fact come to think of it, this getup is kind of SoCal, right? (well, if it were to ever get cold down there...)

I adore this look and would love to have a shirt like this, too - absolutely understand the "borrowing" part. :) Stay warm! x said...

OMG - I love your moccasins and the pics in this post are beautiful. Love seeing the model throwback shots too. I'm in EU so I'm missing the Superbowl, but it was always some of my favorite parities. :)
