Thrifted Outfit Thursday - Board Meeting Edition
Let's start with the sweater. I love this sweater, and I almost didn't buy it. I'm super sensitive to almost any and all sweaters - they all make me itch to some degree. I often layer them with something underneath to help with this, but sometimes layers are heavy and it can be a lot of work when getting dressed. There are sleeves and collars and cuffs that need to be straightened appropriately underneath. It's a lot of work! I was convinced this little sweater would be more of the same but I loved the stripes and decided it was worth the risk. To my pleasant surprise, this has turned into one of the softest sweaters I own. No layers necessary! Also...
Awesome button detail on the shoulder seams! Doesn't it look soft?? My point is this sweater is easy. It's cute, classic, fitted without being tight, comfortable and soft. It's warm, even with 3/4 length sleeves. And it looks great with my brown, tweed-colored slacks.
They're not tweed (undoubtedly, that'd make me itch) but there's more to the pants than just light brown fabric. I wore this outfit for last weekend's board meeting with a pair of kitten-heel brown loafers. I was comfortable, which is key, and I looked presentable, put-together, and professional (at least I like to think so!). And the best part, because of outfits like this I can keep my attention where it belongs: on being the rememberer of all the things. It's one less thing I have to worry about, when I have more than enough to worry about already! And it only cost me about $13.00!
