I'm always on a journey to mix comfort and fashion, because, let's be real... if it's out-of-control itchy or tight YOU WILL NOT WEAR IT.

Particularly I love sweatshirts. Winter is the BEST because I sleep in a hooded sweatshirt basically every night. One day I was struck with a stroke of genius while waking through a department store's child section. There were a few plain crewneck sweatshirts in the boy's section that made me think, "That would totally fit me AND if that sweatshirt were in J.Crew it would cost 3x the price!" 

I purchased a plain black boys youth medium sweatshirt and put it on when it arrived in the mail, but it was missing something. At first I looked for metallic iron-on accoutrements, but when I came across these felt block letters, I knew they would be the perfect understated addition. 

I wear this sweatshirt to work, on date night, under a leather jacket or blazer... you can make it work for most every occasion!
