zippered sweatshirt

{H&M coat (old, great similar version here), Lush sweater c/o Le Tote, True Religion denim c/o, Ray-Bans sunglasses, TOKYObay watch, The 2 Bandits cuff, Brian Atwood pumps c/o DSW, Clarins lipstick, Madewell clutch}

There are days when you want to wear sweatshirts and there are days you don't. Foggy-ish fall Monday mornings always seem like the former. If it's a Monday sweater-do day it might as well be one fabulous looking sweatshirt, and this Lush one from Le Tote fits the bill. This zippered sweatshirt has a micro quilted front panel texture, with neoprene-esque sleeves, and gilded zip accents. 

Now a sweatshirt, chic or not, needs a good solid pair of jeans in my opinion. What doesn't work with jeans, right? Here I'm wearing my sweatshirt with a True Religion dark wash skinny fit, that just happen to make my legs look super long and lean- that's what I call magic pants. Ladies, don't forget to favor bottoms that works for your body type. While you have no doubt caught me in a pair of these (not cute), I'd much rather do a fit like this- much more tailored to my frame, and infinitely more chic, no?

   So depending on what kind of a Monday you've got scheduled hope it's a fabulous, and productive one.

P.S. for all my Bay Area readers- please save the date this Wednesday, Nov 12th- I'm hosting a little event at Bloomingdales in Palo Alto and I'd love to see you there from 6-8pm!

  1. I am with you sister! Sweatshirts all day everyday!

  2. Picked out a sweater for today's weather too! (Finally feeling like Fall weather.) Love this sweater from LE TOTE, but I am also really digging your shoes! <3

    Palo Alto is a bit of a commute for me, so I might not be able to make it down to Bloomies, but I hope you have a great event! (And I can't wait to see your photos from that!)


  3. Obsessed with this sweater lady!! You look amazing!
