Have I mentioned that I’ve been sick for about five weeks now? (Definitely did over on Instagram.) This is from several weeks ago, but I was sick then, too. And when I’m sick and my brain is in a fog, I reach for my favorite cool weather formula: Prairie Underground hoody, leggings, and boots. Comfy and cute. Done and done.

This particular hoody used to be a dusty rose color. It wasn’t my wisest purchase since dusty rose generally makes me look ill – even when I’m not! – so I overdyed it black. As you can see, the zipper didn’t dye, what with being plastic and all. I thought it might annoy me to have a mismatched zipper, but I actually kinda like the effect. Which is fortunate because I’ve got the skills to overdye, but I can’t swap out a zipper. I KNOW MY LIMITS.

I tend to like things neat and tidy. Over the years, I’ve had to adjust my expectations because the world is not a neat and tidy place. My hair is not a neat and tidy ecosystem. And these boots – which have been on my wishlist for more than five years and got nabbed six months ago on eBay – are meant to be kinda undone and messy looking. They scrunch and pucker and the straps curl and stick out on everyone. And seeing as they’re comfy and gorgeous, I’m happy to let them do their thing.

How are you with clothes that look naturally undone or messy? I’m sure some of you can tolerate wrinkled linen – it drives me batty, and I just avoid the stuff. Scarf ties? Distressed jeans? Anything that’s kind of sloppy by nature but just works for you?

Dressed for: Weekend Reading

Already Pretty outfit featuring DKNY knit moto, NYDJ cargo skinnies, Clarks booties, fringe handbag

Tee – Alternative Apparel
Cargos – NYDJ Darleen (old, but a few sizes still available)
Booties – Clarks (no longer available) – VERY similar
Necklace – Altered Ever After/art fair

This outfit was worn for a curled-up reading session. HM and I continue to carve out weekend time for reading, mostly in local cafes where we can sip warm beverages. I’m a sucker for Caribou’s dark chocolate hot chocolate. In fact, it’s spoiled me on all other cafe hot chocolates – they all seem wimpy in comparison. So when I say “local cafes” I mostly mean “nearby Caribous.” Though we do try to mix it up sometimes.

Are you a weekend reader? Weekend cafe-frequenter?
