Bye Bye Birdie

Eight Sixty pocket tank : LAMade grey tank underneath : Primp sweatshorts : Mickey Dee's necklace from local Japanese streetwear shop : spike bracelets from Invasion Shop

I know sweats are supposed to be fashionable these days, but for the most part, I think I will relinquish that trend for home and gym use. I did, however, find these sweet little sweatshorts with black faceted buttons on the side (which I forgot to photograph) and a swallow print that's visible when cuffed. Surprisingly, this outfit was hubby-approved so I sauntered out the door in my embellished sweatwear only to be later reprimanded by my mother for not wearing something "nicer". Oh, if only she knew how fashion forward this look was. One thing's for sure, I could easily mistake this outfit for my pj's in which case I think I'll try to sneak into bed in this very same outfit and see if the hubs notices.

After writing this post, I received an update from Madewell on a lovely pair of sweatpants. From afar, I didn't even realize they were sweat material until I read the title. These could easily blend in with a nice tailored shirt and blazer or even a blousey cropped top me thinks. I'm kinda achin' over that striped pattern and those zipper details. Sigh.
