Recently, Simon got some new fall/winter clothes. When I dress him on chilly mornings, I find myself jealous of his selection of baggy, cozy sweatshirts. I kept wishing they were in my size so I could borrow them. Is it wrong to borrow clothes from your child? I think it is supposed to go the other way around. (In middle school I lived in my Dad’s big, baggy flannels, which I wore with my intentionally ripped up jeans.) Thank goodness Simon wears a 3T, so I don;t have to wrestle with that temptation.
Anyway, when I was at Target the other day I spotted this cozy striped top, and I intentionally bought it in a too-big size. I have been living in it ever since. It is so comforting to be completely enveloped in a warm, loose sweatshirt. I am addicted and may be reverting back to my middle-school baggy clothes ways.
I am experimenting with a new way to tie my scarf today. I don’t own a “circle scarf”–or “infinity scarf” as they are also called– but I came across this video over on the style blog Orchid Grey, in which she shares her scarf tying technique, and it can give almost any scarf that kind of look. I really like it because my house is cold today and this keeps my neck all cozy and warm!
I have also layered leggings under my jeans, and a big sweatshirt over my top and I am still a little chilly! This is how I feel every winter though, so I have learned lots of little tricks over the years for keeping warm, like layering 2 pairs of socks. This method of scarf tying is sure to become a frequently used new trick.
