I was definitely not feeling fresh when I wore this outfit — the winter cold snap has brought with it, well, colds for everyone at the house. Even though the kids are getting ever more self-sufficient, it’s still tough to be on “parent duty” when you’re under the weather; come Monday, you’re more exhausted than on Friday evening. Oh well, I tried … to get an outfit together, that is. My inspiration was the new enamel daisy pin I recently got at Swish. I thought its whimsical vibe would pair nicely with this J. Crew sweater, particularly the collar. The pencil skirt got added to the mix to “adult” things up.
If you couldn’t tell that I wasn’t feeling all that hot from my wan visage, then my accessories would have given away the truth. I didn’t even really try; just threw together all the burgundy things, and called it a day. The end result was unintentionally preppy, but I liked it — not quite my usual style, but nicely adjacent.
