Long Time Coming (See Jane Wear)

J Crew sequin tank, H&M jacket, Zara skirt (worn here and here), Dolce Vita sandals (last worn here), Chloe bag, UO sunglasses

On Sundays, I like to lounge around the apartment or leisurely run errands.  A prerequisite for Sunday is that I like to wear comfortable clothes and this past one was no exception.  This skirt is basically like wearing pajamas and I welcome that with open arms.  The weather here in Chicago finally resembles what I remember spring to be (it's been awhile) and I just pray that it stays somewhat warm until next winter.

On an unrelated note, you may notice that my posts aren't as regular as usual in the upcoming weeks due last minute preparations for Mexico and the wedding (time for a haircut, yikes).  Luckily, I'll be getting some fantastic guest bloggers to entertain you during my absence but please bear with me in the next few weeks in case I can't post as much as I'd like (also, the best way to get a hold of me is email or twitter).





Well, how was your weekend?

This outfit has Sunday chic written all over it! I hope you get a chance to relax and enjoy the wedding build up!

Love the outfit! That maxi skirt looks so comfy. Don't you love it when your clothes are actually comfortable to wear? I could wear a maxi every day of the week!

Ashley said...

I've been living in a maxi skirt late. Great for transitional dressing before the real warm weather sets in.

Oh I love those UO sunglasses! And you should probably come back to SF soon - we have been having some amazing weather (almost summer like).

Yay for the wedding count down.

Great casual outfit...Love the sunnies to! Cheers to Spring for making it's first visit! xo

Bonnie said...

That skirt really does look like a pyjama skirt.
Does that even make sense?
It really just looks uber-comfy, like you could fall asleep luxuriously in it or something.

Girl you know how to rock a maxi...this one looks straight up slinky. Lucky you on the vertical-ness!

The Closet Shopper said...

Fantastic look. I'm a huge fan of maxi anything. You had me at "like pajamas".

I will miss you but am excited for your new adventure. Enjoy!

adorable skirt! i haven't ventured into maxi skirts yet, just dresses.

and i'm in love with those DV sandals, been lusting after them since they came out. Are they comfortable? I hate how so many of the cute flats have the super hard bottom and after 2 hours my arches are screaming in pain!

Samantha said...

Such an effortless outfit. One of my favorites!
