Comfy Chic

What a great outfit for a Saturday night, right? Yeah. Except I wore this on Tuesday night. OK, here’s what happened…

I wasn’t going anywhere fancy or dressy (a pub then a comedy club), which is why I wanted to change out of the pencil skirt and cardigan I wore to work that day. The temps had climbed to 80 by the late afternoon, so I knew I wanted to wear a skirt. This skirt might look constricting, but it’s actually really soft and stretchy. Bottom: picked.

So then I thought, hmmm…I should wear a top I haven’t worn in a while. But something loose and comfortable. Top: picked.

Finally, I needed to put something on my feet. Since nearly every day of the past 4 months I’ve had to go to either work or school (or both), I thought I’d wear a pair of shoes I wouldn’t wear either of those places. Shoes: picked.

I put all this on, looked at myself in the mirror and thought “Where are you going, Sarah? It’s Tuesday.” But hey, I thought I looked pretty good, and I felt super comfortable, which is what I was going for. The fact that I looked kind of dressed up was just an accident.

Here’s my advice for when you feel overdressed: just strut with confidence like you’ve got somewhere really important to go later, or like you’re visiting from a much more sophisticated city. Everyone will think you’re awesome. Or at the very least you will think you’re awesome, and that’s what counts.

  1. Nice! Love this on you. Those shoes are TDF. Unless you’re going clamming or gardening or some such thing, I don’t think you can ever be overdressed. 🙂

  2. I think this outfit is adorable for a Tuesday night date! And you’re right, you rocked it with confidence so you looked amazing no matter what.

  3. I love your advice for feeling overdressed! I frequently go the buisness casual route at work (in a hospital laboratory) which is very uncommon among co-workers. I totally do what you said, strut around like I have way more important things to do later. It used to bug me whenever I wore a skirt and heels that everyone would ask “do you have something fancy to do after work?” when I certainly did not…now I just tell them that I do!
