The first few days after any kind of move means comfortable clothing. For the majority of last week, I frumped around in whatever was handy and clean, and being "fashionable" took a backseat to comfort, We didn't hire movers to shlepp our furniture from the condo to the new house. Why would we? We only moved about a mile up the road! However, let me tell you. I am SO out of shape! My legs and back are still sore from carrying boxes up and down the stairs 50 times over. At the end of the weekend, all I wanted was a warm shower and a massage. I didn't get the massage, but I did take an extra long shower so I could feel human again. How I managed to get dressed at all still mystifies me, but we wanted to have some drinks at our favorite bar to celebrate our move and this is what I came up with. I'm still loving olive green paired with other neutrals, and this utility style moto jacket fits the bill of slouchy comfort. I definitely could have sized down, but this was the last one in the store and I kind of like the oversize fit with skinny jeans. Thank you ladies for all the well wishes on Instagram and snapchat! I really appreciated them. You were all right - the change felt sad, but only for a split second. Now that we have more space, I can't imagine why I worried so much that this wouldn't feel like home. It's been one week, and it absolutely does :)

  1. I am so glad to hear you are feeling at home in your new place! And no matter how good of shape you are in, moving is HARD labor. That's why all the moving companies hire young, fit college dudes. Absolutely love that jacket on you and now I wish I had it in black! Great outfit and congrats on your new place!

  5. Glad your move went well Noelle, hope unpacking and all is a breeze too. I;m in fairly good shape and I still find moving exhausting. Physically and emotionally hahaha.

    Love your casual look. In fact I have a great idea what to wear for drinks with some girlfriends this Thursday :)

  12. Thanks ladies! Nobody likes moving I'm realizing ;) I guess it's always difficult. It's one of life's major stressors! Luckily this one was pretty easy.

  13. Congrats on the new home! Moving is no easy task, and clearly not something you get dressed up for. Glad you are finally in the process of getting settled in - and I do hope you still get that massage!
