I wore this ensemble for a blogger brunch this weekend at Busboys & Poets in DC (one of my favorites). Really, the outfit was built around this awesome skull v neck I got at Target on clearance for $3 – score! As soon as I walked downstairs in it my husband said, “bad to the bone,” which I knew he’d say and it made me laugh of course.
I was excited on Sunday because it was the first morning where it was chilly outside and I’ve missed wearing cardigans so much. So when I pulled out this tee I decided that black jeggings would be a must (cause I’ve been living in them lately) and my black and white boyfriend cardigan would keep away the chill but be a nice neutral with such a great pop of Kelly green in my shirt. Plus, I love the bold black and white stripes, very graphic and fun.
To accessorize the basic t shirt, jeggings and cardigan combo, I added my Twitter necklace layered with a skull necklace, a green turquoise ring (lovely bday present from a few years ago from the parents), green flats in a snakeskin print and to add a bit of sweetness, the LeSportsac with hearts all over it (I didn’t want to do a bad ass overload, so I balanced it with sweet hearts). Oh and I find that whenever I go somewhere with other bloggers or to a blogging event I always wear my with the @ symbol on it, geek chic I guess.
The makeup, I did a fairly neutral cheek and lip because my eye shadow was a shimmering cream, gold, lime green and Kelly green. I felt like having a bit of fun with the eye makeup.
I have to tell you, jeggings are like wearing fitted sweatpants, so comfy! Of course I’ll need to show some balance and wear some wide leg pants too but for casual wear, I’m addicted to these. I also noticed I was facing the left in every single photo and wasn’t smiling, so I thought I’d add one more pic with a smile at the end of the post.
