OOTD: The Wolf Shirt

August 29, 2013







Scarf, T-Shirt: Thrifted | Jeans: F21 | Heels: Target

Ladies and gentlemen, may I present my latest favorite thing. THE WOLF SHIRT.

The Wolf Shirt was discovered by Alex one day while she, Sammie, and I were thrift shopping. We were all very happy for her, but she decided it was too gigantic and weird shaped and that she would probably never wear it. Naturally, I snatched it up immediately, never one to agree with practical reasoning. I knew I couldn’t let this magnificent article of clothing go and vowed to make it work.

It sat in my “to mend” pile for way too long. I had visions of cropping the sleeves and taking it in on the sides–The Shirt is a 3XL and about twice as wide as it is long. A week or two ago in a fit of frustration with my pile of dirty laundry that I was too tired and lazy to sort through, I just cut off the sleeves completely and called it a day. I needed The Wolf Shirt NOW. Turns out that it hangs just perfectly, is the most comfortable thing ever, and looks great–in my opinion. It feels like a billowy tunic now and it’s the. Best. Ever.

At some point last week, Andrew turned to me in bed and said “Will you do me a favor? Please don’t wear that again without washing it first.” Oh, is it gross to wear and sleep in a shirt for like three days straight? Whatever.

Ugh, I’m so disappointed in myself for missing another Big Book of Cats update yesterday. I promise it’s only because things have been so busy. I’ve had one in progress for over a week. Once things quiet down at my day job after this week, I should be able to manage my bizness I bit better. :( I just get home at night and feel so tired. I want to crash ASAP every day. I’m so looking forward to the three day weekend! Perfect timing. xo

      Aww, thanks, Amanda! Haha, I feel like I complain too much about being busy, but I crave my lazy time so much that I just can’t help but vent when I don’t get it! I’m looking forward to a restful long weekend. :)

      Thank you, Emily! I saw you at the Resale Shop, right? I thought it was you and I’ve wanted to meet you, but we were really strapped for time that day, so I didn’t want to start chatting and then dash! Love your blog and style! :)

      The house looks so south city, doesn’t it?! People keep guessing it’s in Holly Hills, but it’s actually in U City! Right by Heman Park
