I’m starting a new thing. Perhaps it will become a regular thing. We’ll see. Heretofore, I’ll do a feature called Fashion Friday (#OGFashionFriday for those of you on Twitter and Instagram who want to join the fun by posting your favorite looks), in which I’ll highlight something I’m wearing or want to wear on the yoga mat or off. I know what you must be thinking: This should be good… from the gal who once paired an Indian ball skirt with a fricking puffy coat and a sweater that, when discovered in the store, evoked the exclamation, “OMG, it’s so UGLY! It’s just my style.”
For these fashion indiscretions, I’m sorry. Not really. So, here we go, Fashion Friday! Please proceed at your own forewarned and fabulous peril.
Right now, I’m in love with grey. If you didn’t know better, you might think I was vibing off the weather, which has been rainy and overcast in Boston lately, but I’ve always loved grey. Big time. It’s like a crush I can’t shake. It’s like how I feel about @Dan_SEAC (you complete me!). OK, that’s a bit much. He’s gonna start giving Grey the staredown if they see each other around town.
2 new items I’m swooning over hard are two grey shirts. One I wear on the mat, the Harper tank by Montiel, a brand that sent the outfit, below, as a gift. It’s rare that I accept gifts because I REFUSE to emptily promote things I don’t love. If I accept and don’t love, it gets awkward. I’ve learned it’s best to graciously decline. Also, I hate closet clutter. ”Athleisure” is a huge trend in fashion right now, and, frankly, there’s little excitement for me there. I live in athleisure, so it takes a lot to get me excited about yoga clothes anymore. But I was honestly excited to wear this outfit. Pumped, in fact.
The other grey shirt, I wear off the mat.
At first glance, it’s a vintage track & field T-shirt that I scored at the South End menswear boutique Sault, but upon further examination, it is a magical fashion staple. I’m dead serious about this. I wear it with a liberal amount of gold accessories, skinny jeans cuffed just so, and sandals or sneakers (or no makeup and a statue in Back Bay station as shown above). If I had a ball skirt, I’d pair it with that. Waaaait a second…
