Although I’m not comfortable participating in the forum right now ( probably for obvious reasons ) , I wanted to raise a fist in support of today’s blog post look. And although I know I’m in the minority here with my love of all things athletic -inspired , I still feel put together , dynamic and confident in these looks . I can move around with speed and ease , and never fuss with the clothes once they are on . And , and, ( haha) although the look may go in and out of “ fashion “ , I feel quite confident in my ability to style these pieces in a way that they don’t look tired and dated . I had a quick errand to run today so pulled this together right out of my closet to post to the forum , and had to laugh at how it’s probably not an IRL outfit for me . 1 . These are one of my 2 current pair of workout shoes , so they don’t get worn outside . I picked them solely for the picture as they had the sleek unadorned look I was going for , and 2 : the sweater is too long for these joggers and is best worn over leggings ( again , I know the forum doesn’t love them , but I’m ok with that ) or slim fit bottoms . I chose it today for the hood and for the pompoms which fill in the neckline of the open coat and eliminate the need for a scarf . Did a pretty bulky semi tuck just for the photo. Do you ever feel like it’s all too much these days with masks , scarves , earrings , bags, mitts, etc etc ?

Anyways , here is my version of this “‘fashion coat “ over athletic- inspired pieces . Sure , the coat isn’t super-tailored or even super - fashiony but I think it ticks the boxes for NOT being athletic or gear - based .

Crepe joggers - Gilli
Cashmere hoodie- PLY Cashmere
Reversible coat - I think BR ( I cut the tags out a few years ago )
Runners - Reebok
Fragrance - Jo Malone Yuja ( a new fav)

And holy crap - if anyone has the miracle cure for sagging skin and jowls , please hit me up .
