Dressed Down

Men's sweater: Gap (stolen from husband after it shrunk!), stripe shirt: H&M, Pants: J.Crew, Heels: Theyskens' Theory, Accessories: Forever 21 knit hat, Noir snake ring, Marc Jacobs watch, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag 

I have had an obsession with casual and comfy looks this season. Based on my recent posts (like this), the idea of lounge wear for going out is incredibly appealing. Before my husband and I met, he loved dressing down in sweats to go out (he still does!). I deduced that this is just my version of dressing down to go out. 

I love the color pairing of my chocolate brown pants with my husband's (former) navy sweater (it shrunk!) and heels. It's not a common color mix but it's a beautiful to me. Wearing heels 
adds a chic appeal to an otherwise casual look.

How do you feel about dressing down to go out?

  17. This looks really comfy cozy yet also still very chic. It doesn't look sloppy - and I love wearing my husband's old stuff that shrunk like that. I have a sweater of his that is too small on him, still too big on me, but is pretty cute with leggings every now and then. These pants are so neat though - they are really different but not so much that they dont seem to go with everything
