Fashion Outfit of the Day

sunday safari

August 18, 2014

Ever wake up on the weekend and just dread getting dressed? I hear you.


That was me on Sunday. My first thought was literally, “Pants are a deal breaker. If I have to put on pants, I’m not leaving the house.”

Hence the tights.


Since most tights are sheer when stretched and should never, ever be a straight-up replacement for pants (can you tell this is a pet peeve?) the rest of my outfit fell into place very quickly: a long tank to prevent inadvertent flashing, and a loose jacket for balance and movement.



You wouldn’t know it, but this jacket used to be khaki. I bought it ages ago and never wore it…till I impulsively dyed it olive as the military jacket trend picked up. Now it’s probably one of the most-used jackets in my wardrobe. Don’t you love a happy ending?
