Sweatshirts Leave the House

There could not be a better time in my life for 'sweatshirt chic' to be all the rage. I think I've been pioneering sleepwear as day wear for years... unfortunately, what's cute at 19 (everyone is cute when they're 19!) is unkempt at 34. Oh, the many indignities of age!

Hello new friends:

Kenzie Zip Placket French terry dress (Nordstrom, $89)

Mossimo Drawstring Waist dress (Target, $27.99) [I bought it in black along with this tunic, buy one get one 50% off]. Add leggings, short boots, wear until next summer is my plan.

Gap lived-in sweatshirt dress (sale $39) Aside from some maternity pieces, I haven't shopped at the Gap in 10+ years. I lump it in with Stores I Dislike For No Concrete Reason, with Bed, Bath, and Beyond, Macy's, and Ulta.


This is almost $400 but Old Navy dress + trip to Joann fabrics + Pat's help + hot glue gun= mama's goin' out!

Speaking of Old Navy, these are cute in photos but do you think they will pull that trick of disintegrating and looking ragged and threadbare after one wash?
Example 1 Example 2 Example 3

What are you wearing this fall? If it's soft and drapey and camouflages spit-up stains I want to hear about it.


  1. Everything from Old Navy falls apart. You are better off buying cheap fall-apart clothes from H&M, because at least they are trendier. I do have some tank tops, leggings, and sweaters from there that have held up for several years.

    1. I concur. And I'm trying to buy made in USA items.

  2. I'm all about comfy clothes. And if someone thinks my sweatshirt is fashion, all the better!
