AJ Wears :: A cropped sweater

One of the biggest stresses of a closet clean out is the worry that you'll throw away something you may want later. With all of the clothing giveaways I've been doing lately, this little cropped sweater some how got lost and I was just sick that I'd finally given it away. And then magically, this weekend, I found it in our spare bedroom and was ecstatic.

I found the thing at Goodwill about a million years ago (college, maybe??) and suspect it's not a "cropped" sweater so much as a dry clean only sweater and someone failed to read the tag. One girl's dry cleaning disaster is another girl's beloved retro sweater. It's almost too warm to wear, but I wanted to get one last wear in before it's completely out of season.

AJ Wears :: Printed Pants

I'm not gonna try and explain these pants. Every so often, I buy something that I truly love but feel the need to explain to other people why I bought them. And after the incident with the cheetah diaper pants of 2012, you'd think I'd never buy into the current "track pants" trend that seems to be going around right now, but I'm a crazy person, okay? I felt a little bit like an extra in The Devil Wears Prada today and I'm totally okay with that.

Pardon my wrinkles. I can't be bothered to steam my pants during my lunch break. I rarely have time to even sit down and EAT during my lunch break. We'll call this working girl style.

AJ Wears :: Navy Stripes

Hope everyone had a fabulous Easter Weekend! Ours was low-key and wonderful. Today's outfit is a simple weekend look - I always like to add a little punch to my weekend outfit by wearing tops with some oomph. My husband said this one looked like the back of my shirt was tucked into my pants, so oomph! There it is.

Also, 3 out of 4 of us wore white pants on my outing today, because, Easter WHITE PANTS TIME. That's the official rule, although I rarely observe and usually just wear white pants whenever I want. If it's good enough for Stacy London, it's good enough for me.
