Comfy Casual

Thursday, February 25, 2010
This will basically be my outfit for the rest of the week. My husband is out of town for school and I just want to wear the comfiest and loose clothing I have - I don't seem to have the desire or motivation to look cute and put on makeup anything at all a skirt. But I told him and myself that I wouldn't just stay in bed and eat chocolates all week(end). I have a few GNOs, a sewing project, and lots of cleaning to do. I think it will be enough until he comes back Sunday night.

Wearing maroon scarf (gift from T), Gap sweatshirt ($11), J Brand jeans ($158), and thrifted boots ($8).

When I dropped my husband off at the airport, he gave me a stack of letters for me to read every night he is gone...and this was what he left me under my pillow last night. Isn't he the sweetest?? I miss him so much....

  4. Okay, your husband is so stinkin' thoughtful and sweet!! The only thing my husband might leave is a stack of bills to bring to the post office, or something gross under my pillow. Not sure what, but not a cute stuffed dog!! LOL, okay, he's not as unthoughtful as I'm making him sound, but not as much as your husband. ;) Enjoy your weekend!! I'm in my comfey clothes today, too....a nice loose button up oxford(men's), and a pair of jeans. I wish I had a box of chocolates to eat right about now...it's been one of those days. Arrggg.

  19. Aw!! That is very sweet. I'm off to pick up my husband from the airport in 20 minutes, and i CAN'T WAIT! It's the worst when they're gone, huh?

  20. You look so adorable in your comfy clothes! Whenever my husband is out of town, I have a bad habit of watching movies in bed with lots of junk food, and completely vegging out! haha!

    ReplyDelete

  22. That is the best sweatshirt ever. And dressing it up with the scarf and boots makes you really polished. For real, GAP should hire you to promote their clothes.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aw darling, you're so lucky! Not only because you have the sweetest husband but also because you got a furry company and cozy outfits to wear while he is not home. (:

    Have a great weekend!

    P.S.: I loooved your full-of-pictures wall =D

  24. Look at you with your glowy skin :)
    So sweet with the notes and the puppy!
    And S and I do the exact same thing {with the notes}. He leaves them in places like drawers and the fridge...anywhere he thinks I'll go while he's away.
    Enjoy your down time :)

  27. Wow, that's so sweet! You guys must not be apart often, haha. My husband and I are pretty used to it now...we started out long distance and then he joined the military. Right now he's in Afghanistan but less than 3 months left until he comes back yay! Ok, rambling.. Such a cute outfit. That sweater always looks perfect! Those boots are really great to.

  28. OMG, I am crying. What a sweet thing to do.

  31. Aww, your husband is so sweet!
    Whenever my husband isn't around, I don't bother dressing up either. It's like... really... who do I have to impress, right?
    haha.

    You're still so effortlessly beautiful. Lucky!

  42. I think that outfit is beautiful! Simple and comfy but definitely not sloppy or overly comfortable looking!

    Your husband is such a sweetheart!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Wow, that boy knows how to handle a kitty ;)

    Thank you so much for your congrats on my blog. I can´t quite believe i shall be able to serve as a source of inspiration...but i like that idea :)

    As for your outfit: did you think about pairing it with black boots instead of brown ones? In my humble opinion brown and black just don´t do the trick...what do you think about it?

  53. Hey I just came across your blog and I must say I really like it.
    Your ABOUT ME section was really very intriguing, it made me look back on the things I own, the media has influenced me too much that I uncontrollably purchase something new every time I see beautiful things that others are wearing. Now I know, I do not lack clothes, I lack creativity and it's a long way for me to learn but I guess this is a start. Thanks! <3 Looking forward in reading more.

  57. What a romantic husband!

    I think the way you pair an oversized top with fitted jeans and great boots is simple yet chic and it's not at all like wearing sweats or pjs around the house.

  58. Your hubby sounds like a total sweetie!

  65. Nice and comfy outfits...just my style ! Am I too old for boots ? When I was young, I had a wicked pair of high heeled boots that made me feel so powerful and pretty...and keeping the romance alive ( good for you two ) is one of the secrets for a long and happy marriage !

  69. That is awesome that you and hubs keep the romance and sweetness alive.

    And alone time every once in a while is good. Plus what's that old adage - "distance makes the heart grow fonder" or similar?
