Style File: Sweaters and Sweatpants

November 19, 2013


It's been two weeks since my last outfit post! One of the longest lags since I started posting. If you read my previous post you'd know that I hit the pause button for a bit in lieu of the typhoon tragedy in the Philippines. Please take the time to read the post if you haven't (specially if you're a blogger or need ideas on how to help the relief efforts).

I've been living in sweaters and sweatpants lately - blame it on the cozy fall weather! I'm thankful to live in this day and age where we can step out in comfort yet still look appropriately chic. I picked up these Isabel Marant for HM sweatpants from the boy's section. I love the fit and feel - and it was almost half the price of the women's version. Definitely one of my favorite shopping tips is to hit up the boys and men's collections. This Gap sweater I picked up over a year ago has gotten so much wear - I've worn it through almost every season (probably only possible here in the Bay). 

New hair. Ahhh yes, I went ahead and took the plunge. I've gone S'Ombre (aka subtle ombre). Thoughts? Been contemplating for months, and finally decided to give it a shot. It's basically a gradual ombre using partial highlights instead of full on color. The effect is less harsh than ombre - a more blended gradation between the tones. I've always stayed so safe with my hair color and kept things natural. There are times I love it. Times I don't. I feel like my hair is so fried right now. Found a great mask to alleviate that problem, and will probably share more about it after a couple more weeks. If you have any recommendations for conditioners/masks for color treated hair - please leave a note!

And yes - that is my little Celine Trio covered in raindrops. Of course, the one time I don't look up the weather forecast is the day it rains. Had I known, I would've switched out the heels for boots and grabbed a parka to go with this ensemble.
