Do you ever have days where you just can’t be bothered to get “done up”? On days like these, I really have to try hard to resist the urge to leave my apartment in sweatpants. While fortunately my advertising day job gives me a lot of leeway when it comes to casual wear, I’m not sure how tolerant they would be if I showed up in pajamas. This is when I go to my fall back combo: all black. I swear, wearing all black is like an instant chic effect, even if part of your ensemble includes a shapeless (and oh so very comfortable) knit sweater. I also fully took advantage of the fact that it’s winter, so it’s socially acceptable to wear beanie, even indoors. Yeah I totally woke up too late to wash my hair on day three. Beanie hats for the win! \_(ツ)_/
All monochromatic color combos need that “little something” accent that makes the outfit pop. For this ensemble, my chosen piece de resistance is my time-turner necklace (Pop quiz: which book-turned-into-movie featured this accessory?). I love wearing this piece because it pretty much acts as a secret nerdy handshake. Only Hogwarts alumni (like myself, duuuhhh) will recognize it. Most people will just think it’s a regular ol’ pretty necklace.
By the way, I’m just kidding. I’m no Hogwarts alumni. Unfortunately your homegirl is just a regular ol’ muggle.
Outfit Combo: knit sweater from The Fifth Label, vixen ankle jeans from Joe’s, clemency smooth boots from Dr. Martens, backpack from Urban Outfitter. knit beanie from Gap (find similar here), time turner necklace from Amazon.
