We’re on spring break this week. I’ve been spending nap times outside in our swing, reading. Reading actual books! Shocking. The warm sun, the smell of jasmine in the air, getting lost in the pages – it’s been pure decadence.
Today it’s raining, so instead of reading outside, I’m cuddled up under a blanket, finishing a quick chapter. (The book is The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards. Have you read it? I’m only a few chapters in, but I’m really enjoying it so far.)
And of course, like any good rainy day, I’ve got on a nice, cozy sweatshirt. I’m working on a couple more projects for my Sweatshirt 2.0 series, but today, I wanted to share a few other sweatshirt ideas that don’t really count as projects.
I’m a believer that you can dress up or dress down just about anything. I treated the sweatshirt like a sweater and added a big necklace.
This time I added a scarf.
Here’s another sweat(shirt)er I chopped off for layering.
My plan was to make this huge gray sweatshirt into another dress, but it was just too short, so I added a skirt. I like the proportions – oversized on top, slim on the bottom.
I paired it with a scarf I made a few weeks ago out of pajama pants (tutorial to come).
Aren’t these fantastic? They are just as orange as they appear. They are Tod’s, and I found them at the thrift store in a whole row of Tod’s – mint green, rust, black & white print, and bright orange. As luck would have it (you know I love Tennessee orange), these were the best in the bunch – almost perfect condition for $3. Might be my new best thrift score EVER.
