I had been looking for a new sweater for fall and winter: something soft, warm, and oversized for maximum coziness. Machine washable too, if possible (because: baby). I took Calvin out with me for my sweater quest and I tried on many close-but-not-quite options. Ah, until I found this one in mustard yellow. Flattering shape! Great color! Throw it in the wash! On sale for $35!
I was feeling pretty cute when I put it on the next morning. I wore a silk top beneath with its shirttail hem peeking out, my favorite cropped skinny pants, patent oxfords, and of course, my glasses. I even had time to put a little makeup on before heading out to walk the kids to school. Look out, world! Stylish mom, comin’ through!
So then I realized, about halfway there, who I looked like. Jinkies.
