Bonjour and welcome to another episode of “Black and Uniqlo, again?”
Call it what you will–a more body-con variation on the Steve Jobs look (RIP), or plain ol’ boring, but this look has served me well. Granted, the Heattech is thin, and asking it to be a real shirt is probably stretching it–literally–sometimes I notice in photographs it gets a bit too sheer across the chest. Ahem. I usually toss a sweater on top of this, but I’ve also gone out with it as the main event + jacket.
Acquisitions 2014, Jan-Feb update:
February was a month of expenditures.
– 3 Luxlight v-neck sweaters (navy, gray, and black)
– Lunarglide 5+ running shoes
– Adidas climalite sport performance socks
– 2 pairs of Ultra Stretch denim (navy, black)
Running shoes and socks were a must for my health goals–my old pair of Lunarglides were dead and were giving me shin pain; I’d worn several socks bare and ended up throwing out almost three pairs due to holes all in the same area–the ball of my foot. These were well-needed replacement purchases. The Gap sweaters were a debated purchase, but after much patience and stalking I was able to secure them for 40% off and they are very useful for this transitional weather we’re having in CA. It’s been a warm winter, but the offices are always cold. The sweaters are just enough warmth with a Heattech layer underneath them, and I like that they’re easy to wear for business or casual.
As for the Ultra Stretch, these were a bit of a luxury buy as I do not have much opportunity to wear denim during my usual schedule. Though my workplace doesn’t have much of a dress code, I am attempting to stay away from jeans unless it’s Friday (which is tacitly “casual” if I go by what my boss wears on Fridays.) There’s no hard and fast law saying no denim, but it is still a conservative environment. I wore almost this exact ensemble just this past Friday except with boots.
March is already here. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that time has moved so fast! How is your month going?
