Shoes: F21, Jeans: F21, Sweater: {Husbands} Gap, Scarf: Tolani, Belt: Thrifted, Sunnies: Target, Purse: F21
This is husband’s sweater. Sometimes he lets me wear his clothes. Sometimes he doesn’t. Sometimes he doesn’t even know, or notice … until I ask him if he likes my outfit. Then he’ll say that he doesn’t like my outfit because I’m putting lumps in his sweater. But I tell him not to worry his pretty little head about it, cause those lumps will only make his pecs look bigger. That makes him think twice. And then he likes my outfit.
Speaking of outfits. I’m running out of clothes. {Kind of a lie} And I really, really need to go shopping really, really bad. Editors Note {hint: it’s husband}: When she says “need”, what she really means is “want”. Carry on. So I’ve been really good right? Right. And being good = at least one new item of clothing right? Right.
WRONG. Being good, now = saving all money. Allllllllll money. I guess husband thinks we need a bunch of moolah in our savings account to go out into the big bad world soon. Psh. Since when? Anyways, guess this means I’m gonna have to start getting creative with it. Maybe I’ll be doing the 30 for 30 challenge? Oh crap. That’s some scary junk right there.

You should definitely do the 30 for 30 - it's fun and a challenge, but not as hard as you'd think. And I love your style, I'd love to see what you can do with the 30 for 30!

I love the outfit, but where o where did you get that cute bag?

amber said...

I've been thinking about doing the 30 for 30, but it's intimidating! right?! Such a big commitment, and no shopping...oh boy! haha

Dawn said...

i'm doing the 30 for 30
i'm used to jeans and a t-shirt so this will be a challenge.

Sofia Prado said...

I'm going to do the 30 for 30 and I'm super pumped about it. Super pumped. My boyfriend is also thrilled to see me not shop for a month. He says he's going to hold me to that. Darn!

Heidi said...

I'm doing the 30 for 30!!! You're a huge part of my inspiration to use lots of the pieces that I've kind of overlooked, so I REALLY hope you do it!

& you look lovely, even if you're getting over being sick. Glad you're feeling better! xo

Cara-Mia said...

I'm doing the 30 for 30 this time around. I say you should go for it. :D

Sarah said...

I've been thinking about doing the challenge too, and I have to admit it scares the crap out of me.

Miriam Lusk said...

Cute look! The shades make it very Audry Hepburn. Budgets stink. I feel your pain ;)

Tessa said...

I absolutely love how you styled your husbands sweater! so cute. I kinda want to do the 30 for 30 but I seriously don't think I could do it! I guess that's why they call it a challenge, huh? Anyways you are super stylish as always!

geri e. said...

ha! I wondered if my husband was the only one who doesn't fully agree that it's ok for me to share his clothes.

p.s. I like the bee-hive bun.

Ps : you look like a blond version of Audrey Hepburn in this photoshoot...

Millie Mae said...

I really like this outfit. I like how you belted the big sweater to create a great shape. I also have been thinking about doing the 30 for 30 challenge. I think it could really be a challenge for me, but in a very good way.

I love that all my fashion blogs are connected. I read Kendi too and LOVE it. That may be how I'd heard of you, now that I think about it...

Jess said...

Yep, I definitely think you should do it! I'm going taking the plunge too (which is really helpful, because grad student + lots of shopping = no bueno). So it'll be a fun way to see what treasures you can come up with- you're creative, it'll rock!

I am planning on doing the 30 for 30, I hope I have enough time!

I love the play with colors in this look.

Pam S said...

I wear my boyfriends stuff all the time, he doesn't have any cute sweaters though because even in winter he doesn't think the weather is that cold. Mostly I steal his massive jumpers (they're huuge on him :D) and wear them for lounging. I did steal a shirt from him though, I wear it with a belt and it looks fabulous :D

annie said...

I love this outfit! You should definitely do the 30 for 30, though I say this completely selfishly. It's so fun to see what you all can come up with by mixing and matching for 30 days!

Jilliebeanie said...

I hear ya, lady. I feel like it's been forever since I've done any real shopping...I think I'm dying inside. And then I go and do the unthinkable and commit to the 30 for 30. I'm going to be a beast before this is all over. Not shopping makes me mean.

theresa said...

You should totally do the 30 for 30! :)
I love your flats and sweater.

Laurelann said...

Rock the 30 for 30! I think it will really help me see what I have already without spending ANY money. Yes, please?

Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

Mariel Torres said...

Adorable outfit!! I love the funky ballerina bun! xoxo Camille @ nevernaked.blogspot.com

Tunes & Spoons said...

Can we get a close up of that bun!??? Its precious!!

Em-Jae said...

You look amazing in these pictures -- so model-esque!

I'm super intrigued by the 30 by 30 challenge, but I refuse to do it because is scares me too much. You should do it so that we can all read about it. ;] That would be excellent.

PearlsAndGreenTea said...

I feel the same way! I can't post outfit pics often because I have nothing new to show plus no time for photo shoots with little toddler running around.

Your pics always look so great and natural. I feel soo awkward in front of the camera. Any tips??

Also, how did you get your hair so full for this bun? LOVE it!!

Amanda said...

Love your hair in this post.

I'm a new reader and I just love your blog and how you and your husband are so cute on here.

Love these outfit posts :)

jessica.adams said...
