When Steve is away on business, two things happen ... dinner usually consists of my three main food groups (cheese, wine, and sweets), and I raid his closet for his coziest sweaters (as I point out in this post). This velour sweatshirt is one of his warmest pieces, plus I love the burnt orange color. Pairing it with skinny jeans and layering on an accessory or two evens out the proportions of his oversized pieces. Perhaps it's a subconscious effort to keep him close when he's gone (but more than likely, I wear his comfortable pieces to hide my meal of Camembert and chocolate).


  1. It looks great on you
    Awesome necklace

  2. I'm happy to have found your blog via The Fromagette and I love your style - much like my own. The perfect jeans only need the right heels and a great top!! I'll be back...
