PREPPY SWEATER

Sweater - Forever 21- and a grey option HERE (and a dress version HERE for $17!)
Jeans - H&M + DIY (Similar HERE)




As I've mentioned in previous posts, I really try my best not to sit in my pyjamas on days I don't have to leave the house.  As much as I love my wardrobe and playing dress up, sometimes my pj's seem like the better option.  However, I've found it makes me feel tired, unmotivated and frankly, not myself.  I almost never get anything done when I laze in my cozy flannels all day long and it drives me crazy.

One easy solution I've found works for me, is to hop in the shower and start getting ready before I do anything else.  Before I check my phone (that's a tough one!), before I get my coffee or eat my breakfast.  Often once I've left my room and head downstairs for my morning coffee without getting ready, it's like I go into some kind of time continuum and before I know it, I've watched The Marilyn Dennis Show, an episode of Say Yes to the Dress and 3 hours of youtube videos.  And yes, still not showered, in my pj's, with a bare face and a top knot. Not the situation I want to be in half way through the day.

So, long story short.  This is one example of an outfit I might throw on quickly in the morning before I have any set plans for the day that might require some outfit planning.  I feel put together but still casual enough that I could run to the grocery store if I needed to. Ready for whatever might come my way!

Anyone else have this problem of lazy-itis? Haha

  1. I think getting dressed in real clothes, regardless of leaving the house or not, does a lot for my mindset. When I have my big girl clothes on versus pjs or sweats, I'm ready to make decisions, be productive, check things off my to-do list! This is a super chic but still casual outfit, I love it!
