how sweatpants saved the day

since i decided to strap a feedbag on my face two weeks ago and it will most likely stay there for the rest of the month of december, my nice little corduroy skinny pants were sort of an imposition on the expansion of my stomach today. said skinny pants only lasted a little while and then i put on my fave sweatpants. those delicious sweatpants have always been so good to me. like an old friend. who is also an enabler of bad habits. like eating fudge for breakfast(and lunch and dinner).

but i think the look worked out pretty well, fudge belly and all: 

flannel shirt- thrifted
sweater- gap
sweatpants- target
boots- steve madden via ebay

AND, flattery will get you everywhere. my dear friend mary, who has THE best hair on earth, sent me this picture of her recreation of this outfit here. and she totally made my week. plus, she is an amazing photographer, etsy-er, home decorator, runner and sammich maker. plus she's funny. my brother always likes to say that girls aren't funny, but mary proves him wrong. many times over. i heart her. and she has great taste in music and sometimes i will just pull up her blog to listen to her selections. if you live in the salt lake area and want to look better than you've ever looked in a photograph, give her a call.

Oh my gosh you are the nicest. And my hair appreciated the compliment too bc it's feeling a little scarecrow-ish lately. You have helped me use more of my closet so thank you a lot!
