Somedays I really do just go in my closet and choose chaos. That was the choice on this day. I’ve been wanting to wear this skirt (on sale by the way!) but I didn’t want to go J.Crew-esque styling and I didn’t want to get all dressed up, which inherently is what this skirt is begging for. No — instead I chose casual with this gorgeous, fancy skirt. I took the queen of Versailles to the local pizza joint. Casual top, casual shoe, fancy in the middle… a casual sandwich, if you will. Or just an outfit, for those who will not with the fashion sandwich analogy.

It’s been like 20 years and I still write like no one reads this blog. Are you tired of my stream of consciousness yet? 😉

My skirt is on sale, as I mentioned! Never not on sale, J.Crew; love you and your deals forever. I am in the medium and it’s true to size. Slightly more fitted at the waist but that’s on my body shape where waist items are usually a bit snug.

My sweatshirt was a birthday gift from B. The kid knows me well. I truly didn’t even hint at this one! You can find it here. Here is an alternative style under $30 here!

  3. It takes my heart at the first eye. Thank you for all of your wonderful suggestions. I recently discovered your blog and have read many of your other blog.

  4. I love the combination of a sweatshirt, skirt, sneakers, and textile bag! It’s incredibly comfortable while still looking fabulous! 🙂 By the way, I do agree that the NYC is a myth 🙂 For years, I have been a loyal wearer of the 1551 angel number brand, which also originated in New York.

  5. Absolutely adore this sweatshirt and skirt pairing on the blog! It’s like solving a stylish IQ test – creatively combining casual comfort with a touch of elegance. The way the textures and colors play off each other is genius. It’s inspiring to see such a unique blend of laid-back and chic, perfect for those who love to make a fashion statement without compromising on comfort. Can’t wait to try out this look myself!
