What I Wore Sunday: Madison edition

Monday, April 29, 2013

I got back from Madison this morning. I spent the weekend with two of my best friends eating sushi, drinking wine, shopping, and catching up on each others' lives...it was very cathartic after the horror that last week felt like (I'm still trying to block my surgery oral exam out of my head). And sometimes it just feels good to get away, you know? (Although I did miss Stephen kind of a lot).

So I may or may not have had Stephen snap pictures of my weekend outfits after I got home from Madison (ha). Regardless, this is what I wore to mass on Sunday: the white skinny jeans that I finally felt right wearing (it was 60s over the weekend!), my favorite shirt (chambray and polka dots), and an old pink sweater that was a clearance rack find a couple years ago. It's starting to pill a little and I'll be very, very sad when I have to let it go...

Pink sweater: old, from the J. Crew Factory clearance rack
 Button up: J. Crew polka dot chambray (last year), Factory version
Necklace: J. Crew Factory
White skinnies: J. Crew Factory
Shoes: the usuals

This was my Saturday night outfit; I love the simplicity of throwing a fun jacket over a white tee and jeans. 

I lucked out on this jacket: there were only two sizes left after it went on sale online at the Gap, and one of sizes happened to be mine...there's a very similar one at Zara, but unfortunately it's three times the price. Also, boyfriend jeans were probably the best idea ever.

Stripe Jacket: Gap
Boyfriend jeans: Gap

 Happy Monday! Linking up with Fine Linen and Purple and Style Elixir.

  4. Beautiful; I love both of these looks! I've never had the nerve to wear wedges or heels with boyfriend jeans, but you pull it off so well! By the way, I've very gently gone over my pilled sweaters with a razor and they come out looking like new =)

  5. I really like the white skinnies & I almost bought a pair of wedges like that last week. :) Cute looks. Feel free to link up with Real Mom Style (You don't have to be a mom) : http://mommainflipflops2.blogspot.com
