AJ Wears :: A Sparkle Sweatshirt

I love sparkly things. I'm totally a "ooh shiny" kind of person. I think I saw this sweatshirt on instagram or something, so when I saw it in store I pretty much picked it up and walked straight to the checkout counter. Will it fall apart if I ever wash it? Yes. So I try not to sweat too much when I wear it and buy plenty of Febreze. I had to google that. There's only one E.



 I'd also like to take this opportunity to tell you about these jeans (JustFab's Super Skinny Moto), which I've worn pretty much non-stop lately. They're super stretchy and have a nice higher rise, and they kind of feel like they suck everything in like workout pants. The waist is smaller and the hips are bigger, which is a better fit for those of us with birthing hips, and I love the little zipper detail on the back of the legs. They can go super skinny for under boots, but I leave them halfway zipped most of the time. They're quite comfy, if not slightly snug in my true size, so consider going up for a more relaxed fit. I'm thinking about ordering the black ones now too. Y'all know I love my JF denim. It seems to keep getting better, honestly.

AJ Wears :: A sweatshirt

Y'all, yesterday was the most Monday-ish Tuesday I've ever encountered. In fact, THIS WHOLE PAST WEEK has been disaster week. I'm falling apart. I almost sliced off my finger chopping spinach, I'm pretty sure I injured myself at kettlebell class, and then I totally face-planted in a parking lot while wearing these shoes today. FLATS, YOU GUYS. I went down and both shoes went flying and I just laid on the ground and pretended like I didn't exist while people ran over to see if I was okay. That's it! I'm never wearing flats again! They're dangerous!

 As much as I'd love to just give up and put on pajamas and get back in bed until my vacation next week (whee!), instead I rely on my coziest and comfiest clothes. Enter this sweatshirt. I don't know why I even bought it in the first place, but this is literally the first thing I put on almost every time I'm trying to lounge or veg out and because of that, I felt like I had to show it to you. If I told you I wore a sweatshirt all day every day I don't suspect you'd imagine something this cute, though. The yellow zippers TOTALLY got me. And it almost doesn't touch my body at all. Double bonus.

Take One, Day 19 :: Sparkly Sweatshirt

I bought this sweatshirt and pants together. I thought the mint would be fun with the bright print. What I didn't anticipate was how much I'd love this sweatshirt. Not only does have fun little sparkles on the shoulders, it's the perfect thing to throw on for lounging around the house. Best of all? Bought it on sale. $7. Boom.

As for the pants, I think they're fun. I was reading Franish's post the other day about pants and I'm with her - I think this kind of pant is more flattering on me than jeans, and I think I'm going to seek out as many as I can. I've always liked pants. Also, I just feel like these pants are more comfortable than jeans. I think it's about where they hit, which is a little higher on my waist, so they don't bake a muffin top. They're softer too. Anyway, we walked from our hotel to this little sushi restaurant we saw on Shark Tank and then spent the afternoon on a patio. The weather in Austin is divine.
