2012. comfy cozy.
express tricot sweater (thrifted). skyline skinny skinnies by paige. frye boots.
every fall and winter, i find an outfit that i can wear several days in a row simply because it’s comfy cozy and i’m comfy lazy. a few weeks ago, i threw away my old leggings and bought two pairs of ponte knit pants on sale at nordstrom rack. i chose paige and joe’s— both pairs fit like a dream. they feel like j.crew’s pixie pants but have longer inseams (good for tall girls).
i found the sweater at the thrift store. i used to own this sweater— well, not this exact sweater because some lady wrote her name on the tag, so it’s definitely not mine. the year was 1992, middle school monopolized my days, and express churned out chunky cotton sweaters in solids and stripes. my mom bought me three of them, and i wore them constantly.
then i remember seeing one of the science teachers at school in my sweater. i thought, oh my god, a teacher has the same sweater as me, and oh my god, do teachers go to the mall?!
