The Trusty Sweatshirt

I was cleaning out the attic at my parents house and came across an old Hanes sweatshirt I bought from a thrift store in high school.  I have practically been living in the sweatshirt since I rediscovered this treasure.  I have mixed and matched it with skirts, skinnies, my beloved leather joggers and finally workwear.  So one work day morning, when getting out of bed was particularly impossible, it should come as no surprise to you that I turned to my trusty sweatshirt.  I love pushing the boundaries of work wear and redefining pieces that might otherwise be overlooked.  While rocking a sweatshirt to work is not for every office, know that it can be done by dressing it up with complimentary accessories and garments.

Black & White

Pairing black and white is basically the ultimate marriage of all things right.  These two opposites complement each other excellently, allowing for a multidimensional look that is also accessible.  So many interesting looks can be achieved with these elementary colors! So lets give a little more love to the perfect pair, black and white.

This combo allows you to wear white outside of its season and is perfect for transitional weather/seasons.

Blazer: Theory (last season, similar here), Pants: Gap (old, similar here), Top: Sparkle & Fade (old), Bag: Michael Kors (found here), Necklace: Anthropologie (old), Sunglasses: Ray Ban, Shoes: Aqua (old)

Another reason I like this look is that it can easily translate from work to happy hour or an evening event with just a switch of the shoes & accessories

Special thank you to Dzifa for his excellent photography skills!  Check out his blog here.
