I've always had an affinity for lounge wear. Big worn tees, voluminous gauzy pants, thick cable knits and scrunchy socks....
It's the only reason I love Winter. Just another reason to get comfy!
The thing is, the slight difference I've realized of lounging around the house filling my day with projects now,
to hanging around back in my old apartment with my awesome single girl ways then, is that nowadays, I want to look good doing it!
You know, I want to look sexy. Elegant. Lady like. Basically, when Theo and I are hanging around the house together, I'd like to be able to tell us apart :) Why wear sweats when I can wear drapy, soft pants-for-her? I mean, do you ever see Olivia Pope wearing sweats in her apartment during her calls with the president?
No. No, you don't.
So I've been working on this look as a collection actually: clothes cozy enough to be worn in the house and also presentable and flattering enough to be worn out!
One newer item I'll give a sneak preview of is this simple stretch knit long skirt I'm considering.
The feeling of a cashmere sweater with the light animal print and dim coloring is perfecto for both staying in and going out.

It seems I can't get where I'd like to go fast enough. My passions have had me on the edge of my seat lately - just anticipating each day. Grabbing a coffee mug from the pantry, there's one that tends to always be in just the right position to stare back and be a simple reminder...
A simple reminder to calm my ass down!
