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.

Bach Bash






I wore this Saturday night for my friend Chrissy’s bachelorette party. It was fun without being TOO out of control! There was limo-riding, bar-hopping and tipsy-dancing involved. I know this get-up isn’t exactly your typical “night-out-with-the-girls” look, but if I dressed typically, what would be the point of having a style blog?

I felt totally awesome in this skirt, even if I was one of the only girls at these bars with a hem line more than 2 inches below my lady bits. It’s impossible not to make an entrance in this skirt because the fabric billows around me and every once in a while you get a glimpse of some thigh. See, girls? It’s true what they say about leaving something to the imagination. Don’t show all your goods at once.

So the next time you’re deciding what to wear to go out on a Saturday night, think about your dear friend Sarah. Put down the strapless LBD that some might mistake for a lost legwarmer, and pick up a beautiful and flattering maxi skirt (and throw in some polka dots for good measure).
