WIW 1/22 & 2/6: Grey sweatshirt to the office x2!

I've been dying to copy MaryK and wear a sweatshirt to work ever since I saw her do it this summer (6):

I found this Vince grey sweatshirt online at Nordstrom (7):

I am slightly embarrassed at how much I paid for a grey sweatshirt--I know I could buy a $20 one at Old Navy, but I wanted it to look polished if I was wearing it to work--hopefully this looks a little more luxe than your basic lounge sweats? Initially I rejected wearing it with my slouchy trousers--I thought it would look too masculine. So I paired it with a black leather pencil skirt and the Okala pumps. Got lots of compliments on the outfit, especially the shoes! And nobody said, "Why are you wearing sweats to the office?" Or if they thought it, they kept it to themselves!

After wearing my trousers several more times in the last few weeks, I decided to go for it and see if I could make the sweats + baggy trousers look work for my ladylike style. Threw on the big bubble necklace to femme it up. I felt a bit like a fashion blogger!

I don't know if you can tell, but I'm having fun developing my alternate edgier style persona! Thanks for looking and commenting!
