pin real life / 22

oof there's been some instagram controversy as of late:
 it all started when Russ snapped a pic of us at the grocery store...
i had somehow convinced the world (or at least those who follow my feed)
that i was super fancy. 
so the next time i scrubbed my house down i offered this as proof:
the trouble was that you blog readers have really good memories and called me out about the time i said i never wear sweat pants. caught!! i swear i don't - or at least i try not to! i haaate sweat pants.  they bring out the worst in me. i hate the way i walk - nay, shuffle about- in them.  the way if i was just but horizontal instead of vertical, i'm only closed eyelids away from being asleep. 
but! the odds are good when i am on all fours scrubbing a bath tub, i'll be in them. 
i can't quit you, sweat pants!

anyway all this instagram sparked personal dichotomy has got me thinking about what we wear when we want to lounge around and what we wear when we want to hear day-um girl!
can the two intersect?

here's a handful of comfy, no-fuss, seemingly effortless looks (and totally Fall-related, i can't help it, i'm itching for it) worth a pin:
in real life:
Russ' jeans [BDG via UO] white tank [OLD NAVY] striped sweatshirt [AMERICAN APPAREL] two-tone oxfords [GO JANE] buddy holly readers [HOT TOPIC] red lips ["CHERRY" LINER and "MAC RED" by MAC]

 my lounging go-to is usually straight out of my husband's closet. loose loose loose. 
they might as well be sweat pants, but they aren't, that's the difference.
 if i need to jet out of the house in a moment's notice alls i need is some fake glasses to hide ZERO make-up, a swipe of red lips, because why not!?, and maybe some whackadoo shoes to make it all look somehow intentional.
pretty sure i haven't answered any of the above questions posed, but i don't think our style choices require answers, do they? that's what makes our style ours.

I love this outfit. I've seen a few ladies on Instagram and Pinterest throwing down some amazing comfy looks. J.Crew of course has the monopoly on awesome lounge clothes. Starting to look forward to these Pin Real Life posts!

uhhh...you don't have to explain/justify your style choices. not at all. you're right. our style is unique to us. it's our choice and it's what makes us different.
