This outfit is really similar to something I wore last week. The outfit last week got a comment from a John R. Tate I thought was…interesting. I am going to break it up into parts. John will be in quotes.
“No, just no. Hoodies make a grand light when burned together at night after few shots of Jack. Douse 'em with a few shots as well for a big poof!“
They are also very warm when it’s 30 degrees F outside. And comfy. And cozy. And super functional.
“At some point you'll reach the age when you DEFINITELY cannot revisit youth, then you'll burn the hoodies for sure.“
I doubt it. My father –in-law and mother-in-law as well as my aunt, who are all over 50, still rock the hoodie on cold days. A hoodie is not an age limited garment as far as I can tell. And if at some point I decide they are not for me anymore, as is my right as a woman, I will likely give them to friends or donate them to a charity.
“Lose the skirt as well or go all out and drape yourself with it. I can’t decide if you’re a motorcycle chick or a fem. The outfit needs a little lace and a V-neck. The hair could go as well, but the behind-the-times boyfriend or husband will likely raise a stink. Bangs and a short crop turns this third grader into a first rate hotty.”
I’m sorry…but what? I think you might be missing the whole point. I am neither a motorcycle chick OR a fem. I am me. One of the great things about the modern world (besides DVRs, iPods and eye shadow primer) is that we are not forced to choose to be one thing or another. We get to be whatever we want, wear whatever suits our mood that day. My hair is amazing as is, and I look good in that skirt.
And with that said, another skirt, hoodie and biker jacket combo…
I pretty much always have a book. Normally they fit in my bag, but I’ve got this one crammed pretty full right now. You can only see “Cheryl” but I also have “The Prophesy of the Sisters”. I just got “Cheryl “ yesterday and I’m super excited to start reading it.
You can’t really see from the pictures, but this hoodie is the same as the grey one from Old Navy and has the tuxedo shirt style ruffling on the front. I LOVE this style. I think the ruffles are so cheeky on a hoodie.
I know that bag doesn’t really match so much today, but I decided it was close enough and it’s so rare I get a chance to work it into an outfit I thought I’d just push it and carry it for one more day.
I just wanted you to see the waist on this skirt. It is odd and totally unflattering, which is why I always wear a jacket or untucked shirt with it. It’s a little roomy in the waist and yet it sits super high. It’s very strange.
