I wanted to wear this black and gray striped tee today, because it can double as my workout top for Pilates. Usually I'd wear a cardigan over it, but I wanted to wear something a little different than the usual short or long classic cardigan. I decided to try my black cocoon shrug, made of fabric with intentional holes in the outer layer. And I added my piano-wire necklace; I like the way the links echo the shape of the holes in the shrug. The outfit felt good for my errands and hanging out; it seems to have just the right amount of quirkiness for me.

The outfit (worn for a day off):
Medium wash boyfriend jeans (Fidelity); gray and black striped long-sleeve tee (Caslon); black shredded-knit cocoon shrug (made by me); black belt; black and white snake print sneakers (Mephisto); piano-wire chain necklace and silver etched-spiral disk earrings; black packable raincoat (Cole Haan); espresso and black satchel (Joy Gryson, Natalie).

Thanks for looking! I welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
