A trench kind of day

It’s a windy, cloudy day here in Maine. The kind of day where soup and a cozy jacket become my good friends. I took the day off to recuperate from terrible seasonal allergies and a very busy week, so I plan on being pretty low key today, but I do have a few errands to run. So, I said good morning to a comfy pair of skinny jeans and my favorite thrifted Bloomingdale’s trench (one of my best finds ever). Easy peasy, but not too schlumpy. I think that actually may be my theory for dressing. Let’s start a movement everyone! Say goodbye to the pajamification of America and chant with me:

Easy peasy, but not too schlumpy! Easy peasy, but not too schlumpy!

Jeans: American Eagle (they fit really well for $40!)
Trench: Thrifted Bloomingdale’s
Bag: Vintage Dooney & Bourke (flea market)
Oxfords: Urban Outfitters

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.
