it should go without saying that sweatshirts are my jam, see here and here and here. the key for me is finding ones with interesting details or graphics that can easily pair with more tailored pieces like skirts and trousers. this two toned sweatshirt from the who what wear collection is quite genius—it’s a work shirt and sweatshirt in one. the body is traditional sweatshirt material and color, but the sleeves are done in a crisp cotton in light blue. to top it off, they added navy grosgrain ties at the sleeves. it’s slightly cropped, so it will look great with high waist pencil skirts or pants. the sleeves are full but not too much so, meaning you can still type and get work done (oh and eat!) for the office, i paired it with a vintage railroad stripe pencil skirt, black ankle strap sandals, and my céline box (working on getting that cost per wear down).

it’s been a packed last few weeks around these parts: i was in philadelphia two weeks ago to visit my family, then took a quick trip to memphis with ahn where we got a behind-the-scenes tour of st. jude research hospital and target house, where families of children receiving long-term care can stay. st. jude is an organization that i volunteered with back in philadelphia, so it was wonderful to see more of what the teams there do…it was so inspiring.
