sunday comfort

 photo DSC_0711_zps681d6cba.jpg

I wear this top and skirt (especially the top) from Family Affairs all. the. time. but I usually wear them separately, and when I do wear them together it's usually with the top tucked in so the whole thing resembles a dress. On my Sunday in New York though, I liked the kind of relaxed, I-woke-up-in-my-studio-with-a-paint-fumes-headache-and-went-straight-to-brunch look of not tucking it in.

I think I definitely have a more North American approach to Sundays... I want to look nice but be comfortable and casual as well. In Barcelona, I've noticed that as Sunday is often a day when people go out for lunch with their family, they often dress really nicely (amazing jackets and scarves and such).

Anyway, long story short, casual or dressed up, I love this set (I'm coming to the conclusion that I love matching sets in general) and it was fun to be wearing locally made clothes in New York.

i like your description of the two piece set untucked, although i wouldn't never have thought of it like that. that does remind me of how i think most young people in NYC live though. so jealous how you got to meet up w/ so many blogger friends. i guess i should've tried that when we visited, although we were so crunched for time. oh and the pattern on the top/skirt is perfect.
