No Occasion

I am currently listening to J. Tillman & swooning.  All of those Fleet Foxes boys make me completely swoon, and I'm glad they have the same effect over Patrick or else someone might get a little jealous.  As embarrassed as I am to say this, I even had a dream last night that Patrick and I were best friends with Robin Pecknold. I sent a tweet to him once & he responded, and let me tell you.. that completely MADE my day!!! Are there any bands/artists that just completely overwhelm you & you wish you could be real life friends with?! Or am I just crazy?

thrifted shirt, thrifted sweater, thrifted belt, F21 leggings, socks c/o We Love Colors, UO booties

Anyways, this is just a casual outfit I wore when I was starting to feel a little sick. I just wanted something comfy and cozy and this outfit did the trick! The outfit is mostly thrifted, and I'm especially in love with this sweater. I've been on the hunt for lots of fair isle and grandpa-style sweaters lately and this is one of my favorites! It's so easy and includes perfect fall colors. The booties are Urban Outfitters in Seattle, and I'm glad I snatched them up when I did because I don't see them online! They are super comfortable but I wish I got 1/2 a size up to wear thick, woolly socks with them. Luckily, these tan socks from We Love Colors does the trick perfectly!

Patrick and I have a tradition that if either of us feels sick, the other treats them to pho.. it's the best at cleaning out your sinuses! Sure enough, Sunday I had a full-blown cold.. and out of all the days, Sunday we had been planning a trip to Washington D.C. to see Tallest Man on Earth! But I wore my comfiest vintage 1970s mens flannel shirt belted, these black leggings, and some boots, and drank plenty of tea, but I felt awful the whole trip. Tallest Man on Earth has a certain way of making a girl feel better with his enticing lyrics and engaging voice, however. He pulled his fiance Amanda on stage for a duet and let me just say.. it was the cutest thing ever and brought tears to my eyes!  Check out the video of the performance here. You can't really see his face, but Kristian had the BIGGEST, goofiest smile on his face when he was singing to her! If anyone is thinking about seeing Tallest Man on Earth live (although he is currently heading back to Europe).. I highly recommend you do so!

Currently listening to: J. Tillman, "No Occasion"


  1. Girl, you look great when you're sick! Ha. That sweater looks so comfy and those boots are prefect for fall.

  2. I forgot J. Tillman had an album out, when will FF release something new though?

    Wow, that's your sick day outfit! You look great. I love the funky pattern of the sweater.

  3. I agree with both comments above....your sick outfit looks FABULOUS! Girl, when I'm sick.....let's just say my yoga pants & sweatshirt wouldn't make it to the blogosphere. I'm so glad you enjoyed Tallest Man on Earth, despite your irritating cold....yay! I just started listening to them & I already am in love! These pictures of you are really, really pretty my darling I miss you and love you and can't wait to see you (which is hopefully soon!)

  4. I love the outfit Brittany! You are so lucky to have snatched up those boots, they are fabulous!

    I have dreams about being friends with celebrities/bloggers all the time haha! Although the other day I had a dream that Zack Galifinakis (the guy from The Hangover) tried to kill me. That was a strange one...

    You and Patrick are so cute! I love your sick tradition. Whenever Gavin or I get sick, we get to stay in bed and play video games together all day. Haha, such nerds!

  5. Those are amazing boots!!! You will definitley get plenty of wear out of them this fall/winter. And may I say you look great for being sick. When I'm sick I get a drunk look in my eyes and I am no where near photogenic at all.

  6. what a cozy outfit! i need some more warm knit sweaters--i'm always freezing and have to get a blanket out when i'm just hanging out at home.

    sickness sucks, but you still look lovely. my boyfriend got me into tallest man on earth and he actually came to VT but the show sold out before we could get tickets! he's the music buff, i'm just along for the ride :)

  7. gorgeous outfit! i just adore every single pice of it - casual, warm and cosy!

  8. I hope you're feeling better! Thank you for introducing me to The Tallest Man on Earth. I should be in bed, but I'm searching and searching online for more! What's your favorite song/album of his?? This music is right up my alley.

    Try ginger tea with honey and lemon, it usually clears my head and helps me feel much better.

  9. Love the boots and socks combo and that chunky knit is so fab :) x

  10. Um, I totally love this outfit. So cozy for fall. Will definitely recreate it this weekend.

    Oh, and I LOVE Fleet Foxes.

  11. cool outfit love your sweater!


  12. This whole look has me swooning! That sweater is amazing, and those boots are just perfect! I'm feeling warm just looking at you in this post!
