Dressing down

I'm really behind in outfit posts. Ah well, what can you do?
Thursday I had a crafty afty with my friend. I hauled an enormous backpack of craft supplies over to her house and we sat on the floor, eating tacos, painting and chatting. The blank page is super intimidating! I always hesitate to make the first mark on a bit of pristine paper but once I do I always enjoy the process even if the end result isn't what I see in my head.

I wanted to be as comfortable as possible for creativity to flow through. Then I remembered that Erin has "fashion sweatpants" and Allison has been "on a lifelong quest to make sweatpants suitable for public consumption". Soooooo I took some cropped yoga pants (the only sweats-like thing I own) and Danielle-ified them.


cardigan: Ricki's 
dress: H&M
yoga sweats: Smart Set
boots: Steve Madden
earrings: Folk Fest vendor


Today I'm grateful for the wonderful trivia team we had this year. It was such a pleasure to help everyone to find their knowledge niche and learn how to trust each other on who knew what! We won the semester overall so now we've won a keg party. We may have to recruit more beer-drinking friends to help us dispose of 16 jugs of beer...

Awesome to the possum. They don't look like sweat pants at all! More like trouser capris.

Wow, you make workout capris look classy!

We didnt' stick around for all 8 rounds of trivia, but figured your team undoubtedly won again! I will miss trivia, but I won't miss the getting-home-late-and-cold part of it!
