Now that his working days are behind him, my dad has hung up his many button-downs for way more casual attire - the sweat suit. He pretty much wears a navye zip-up jacket with matching sweatpants and white sneakers for everything now, and I mean everything. If a place of business or play allows him through their doors in his fleeced out, elastic-bottomed ensemble, then he must be appropriately dressed, right? Real pants are for working chumps, my friends.
So when I put this outfit together last week, I couldn't help but to think of it as a bit of an ode to my dad, then and now. The top is a fancified sweatshirt, the pencil skirt is a heavy knit, but with the button-down and right shoes, I am completely work-appropriate, in a comfortable as all get-out way (I ended up changing bottoms to run errands and grab a bite later in the afternoon).
As we are in the midst of the holiday frenzy, I believe it is a good thing to take a moment to think of the people we love and look forward to seeing them again shortly. Are there any items you wear now that remind you of someone special in your life?
