my commitment to neutrals is definitely still going strong. i think it's time to bring back of my favorite pops of color though. i'm thinking that this tomato-red sweatshirt and these rust tights are ready for a re-appearance.
j.crew grandma cardigan via thredup (join here and we both get ten bucks!): $23. so warm! (worn here)
j.crew silk ruffle tank via thredup: $12. i was a big admirer of this tank when it was in j.crew stores a few years ago, but couldn't justify the price for a novelty tank. it's definitely more of a summer piece, but looks good under jackets too.
forever21 all-day chelsea wedge boots: $37. (exactly) i've been looking for a pair of simple flat or low wedge ankle boots to pair with black tights. although these are pleather ones aren't going to last more than one season with salt and snow, i've been wearing them all the time, so a similar higher quality pair are definitely on my list now. (worn here)
forever21 street-chic sweatpants: $18. these were part of project comfy-pant-upgrade to find some alternatives to wearing ponte pants (really just fancy leggings) on the weekends (worn here)
forever21 desert camo harem pants: $20. (exactly) comfy-pant-upgrade part two. (worn here)
forever21 no-fuss french terry top: $16. this shirt is basically a towel. and i have no qualms with admitting that.
forever21 favorite marled knit sweater: $25. (exactly) it's all cotton and super cozy. i foresee this being my top choice for holiday vacation lazing this year. (worn here)
forever21 standout layered necklace: $9. (exactly) i used to have a necklace almost exactly like this one, but it got caught on things a few too many times and totally fell apart. (worn here)
juicy couture heart-print blouse via t.j.maxx: $50. (exactly) tiny hearts! (worn here)
total: $210. and i still need to find the perfect thing to spend my birthday money on!

i had never read any of zadie smith's novels before and i am definitely hooked. and i have definitely been taking advantage of the new yorker subscription i got the boy for his birthday.
