Grey Days

Coat: Old Navy, T-Shirt: Xhileration, Jeans: GAP, Oxfords: Xhileration, Hat: New York and Company
You know how fashion bloggers will be like "Oh, it's a casual day so I'm just wearing my Yves Saint Laurent t-shirt with a pair of vintage cut-offs and my Gucci sandals. And maybe even my Ralph Lauren watch." Well. Let me just say that is not me. Not only do I not own anything Yves Saint Laurent or Gucci (or Ralph Lauren for that matter), but anything that is more than $50 should not be worn on a casual day where you're most likely going to be hanging out with your cat all day. When I go casual, I go 100% casual with a pair of skinny jeans, a long sleeved T-shirt from Target and a pair of comfy flats, I'll also throw a beanie over my "maybe I washed it, maybe I didn't" hair. The whole point of this post? To admit that sometimes I love wearing casual clothes, and that (maybe) I love days where I'm at home and the only thing left to do is watch a movie with my cat. But seriously. That beats all of this homework that I'm stuck doing.

  2. Ha! I totally know what you mean! My casual days have more Wal-Mart to them than YSL! I love this outfit. The purple accents look fantastic.

  7. Love how real you are. Great casual outfits. Days with movies and cats are the best-- I feel ya on the homework thing. (p.s-- I don't know if you like fashion from other periods, but if you haven't watched "Downton Abbey" do. Preferably on a casual day with your cat. Not only is the show great, the clothes are gorgeous!)

  8. Love the color of the coat & hat. Pretty! I totally agree...I like to see bloggers who's looks I BELIEVE they actually wear, particularly with the casual stuff like you said. I don't own any designer stuff & probably never, ever will so I'm all about Target, ON, F21, etc because that is REAL life for ME :o)

  16. Haha, thats so true! Usually on casual days I'll wear my running tights (or bootcut jeans) with a classic tee. And maybe some earrings or a necklace. With my moccasins.:) I love your "classic" look though, the coat is amazing!
