Outfit of The Day: On Fridays We Wear Jeans

We can wear jeans to work on Fridays and I always, always do because I CAN. This is what I wore last Friday:

This is how I do jeans and a sweatshirt at work! Heh. My fancy sweatshirt is from Banana Republic and I bought it last year. It's a really good one! I wasn't sure about the sleeves at the time, but now I love them. BR currently has this similar style but not with stripes. For a striped similar, I love this one from Mother and this Madewell version (via Nordstrom Rack) is awfully cute too. 

My jeans are Madewell and I thrifted them. I originally bought them to resell but tried them on and oops, they're mine now. They're an older version of this style and I love that they're just...jeans. Not too dark or too light a wash, no distressing or holes or whatever, just jeans. (That's not to say I don't want interesting jeans but these are a good, basic pair.)  My belt is also from Madewell and it's a belt. On to details: 

I wear this necklace a lot! It's everything I love, really. It's Dean Davidson and long sold out but this beauty is quite similar and on sale! I also love this labradorite charm pendant which I am trying to resist buying. 

I brought my Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir out this week because I needed a little color. I've been really pleased with this bag! It's just easy to carry and fits more than you would expect. It's available on sale in a really good dark pink or and I really like the red in the updated nylon version. I also found a darker red in the small size here. My boots are Madewell Lucien and this current style is probably the most similar. 

I've been wearing my new Helly Hansen Boyne parka quite a bit lately and it was such a good purchase. 100% waterproof and warm! The color I'm wearing is "beluga" which can only be found on the HH website. They also have a really nice deep purple color that I haven't seen anywhere else. Nordstrom Rack also has a decent selection of HH styles at great prices! I'm totally sold on this brand. 

That's it! I'm currently on vacation in Ireland (oooh, writing from the past) so I hope all my American readers are all gearing up for a good holiday! 


  1. How are you feeling about the new-ish cropped wider leg style for jeans? Have you embraced it?
    I'm struggling after years of skinny jeans.

    1. I like it in theory, haven’t yet embraced.

  2. Your lipstick color looks great! Do you mind sharing what it is?
