This outfit is called - I wanted to wear things I haven't worn in a while. All these pieces haven't been getting much love lately. This is partly because I haven't been going anywhere and because I wore some of them a LOT when I first got them so I end up passing by them. When it comes to the Ancient Greek Sandals that's because I have 10 pairs....whoops! The only piece I'm still unsure of is the shorts. They just seem a little too big, especially in photos. But they're comfy and keep me cool on hot days so I keep them around.

I have been so "lazy" with my outfits this Winter. I try to come up with interesting looks utilizing different things in my cloet yet I always fall back to the jeans and sweater combo. It's not a bad thing but I'm feeling bored with my style. Definitely a pitfall of working from home. I don't have occasions to wear my "fun" clothes as much and then on the weekends I'm usually hanging at home, running errands or at my Grandma's for a few hours. Not peak blazer or fancy clothes wearing time. So I continue on with my winter uniform, cycling through old and new sweaters.

This time it's a sweater I've had for a LOOONG time - eight years - it's been on the blog quite a few times in varying degrees of "stylish." I used it to recreate a Michael Kors runway look in 2012 and rang in 2017 in London at the New Years Eve fireworks.

Also wearing my new J Brand jeans today! I expected them to be like my "super skinny" pair and tight to the legs but they were a little looser. Perhaps if I got the 26 they would've fit more like I imagined, but I was too lazy to go through the exchange process, especially because they might have sold out and I would've been out of luck. The dangers of sample sale sites.

Designer collaborations are all the rage these days, everyone from H&M to Kohl's do collections with famous designers. We can thank Target for making it popular, they started the trend 20 years ago. I believe I used to have a pair of sandals from a collection they did with Isaac Mizrahi but they are long since destroyed from wear.

Last month Target announced they would be re-releasing some of their most popular brand collaboration pieces to celebrate 20 years of designer partnerships! I have bought quite a few pieces from the collections over the years and some remain favorites to this day! One of my absolute favorites is my floral Jason Wu dress that has been on the blog countless times. I also love my 3.1 Phillip Lim sweater and sweatshirt - they are re-releasing both of those! You can preview everything that will be available here and shop tomorrow!

Unfortunately since the collection is being released tomorrow, I will be flying to and enjoying my first night in Rome. Such a shame! But I guess it's stopping me from shopping! Speaking of - this will be my last post until October since I didn't want to have blog posts go up while I'm away. Follow me on Instagram to keep up with our travels through Italy and Greece and when we get back I'll share outfits and travel guides! YAY!

A simple outfit for a warm day. I wore this to go grocery shopping so I didn't want to wear shorts - hello freezer section.  I haven't been wearing this pair of jeans much for some reason so I decided it was time to take them out for a spin. I wore them with one of my favorite Summer sweaters - a bit of an oxymoron but this is a tank sweater and it's perfect for hot days. I'm really liking the blue, black and brown combo; who says you can't wear them together?!

I've shared the story a few times before, but my late Grandmother (Dad's mom) made this sweater and 3 others for my Mom and her other daughters a long time ago - decades probably. My Mom actually asked for a second one in another color because she loved it so much. She passed it on to me in 2012 and it's been a Summer staple since then.

Worn this past weekend for some antique shopping, a trip to IKEA and then lunch at Texas Roadhouse followed by Sonic for deep fried Oreos. There was a lot of walking through aisles, good thing because we needed to work off all the food we ate! I had a coupon for a free appetizer at Texas Roadhouse, we were seduced by a cactus blossom! (aka bloomin' onion) So we made this our pseudo Valentine's date, even though my parents joined us, since we don't really care to celebrate.  I wore pink for the occasion.

Last weekend I wore this to go to Dave & Busters with my siblings and their significant others. I had a gift card as a thanks for doing a giveaway with them a couple months ago and decided to share the wealth with everyone so we could have some fun. We were brave to go to the Connecticut Post Mall the weekend before Christmas but luckily Dave & Busters wasn't TOOO crowded because we went right when they opened.
