An Outfit (Deconstructed)...




The blissfully cooler weather here in Dallas (it's currently 75 degrees...a welcome break from yesterday's balmy 105!) has prompted me to bust out the jeans and some sturdier tops. I have to say, in terms of clothing, this is my least favorite time of year. It just feels wrong to keep wearing sundresses and the like, and yet it's totally unrealistic to sport sweaters and boots. Add to that the issue of wardrobe fatigue inevitable at the end of a season, and you have the impetus for a lot of, well...totally uninspired outfits.

So, bolstered by the drop in temperatures, I put on something that has yet to see the light of day, despite the fact that I bought it back in June. Granted it's essentially a giant, cozy sweatshirt, which isn't exactly the most practical of purchases for Texas in June, but I had coveted it for a while, so when it went on sale I pulled the trigger. And then I never wore it. (For the record, I'm not sure I would recommend this type of out-of-season, largely impractical shopping, as it rarely yields stellar long-term results, but I digress.)

But friends today I am wearing that possibly ill-advised, bought out-of-season, giant, cozy sweatshirt, and today it's making me feel all sorts of fall goodness.

I have this same problem in Florida. It's too hot to truly be fall, but I need some kind of change in my wardrobe from jean shorts and tanks. More posts like this please! Very inspiring!

Love this! Cozy AND stylish is hard to find, but you've done it. (BTW, I'm in Austin and insist on wearing fall clothes in September, even if it's still in the 90s. I can't help myself!)

I'm obsessed with your style!! I want to be Joslyn!! LOL. I think the piece you bought is a perfect transition piece from summer to fall and winter to spring. It could work a lot of ways.
