In The Hood(ie)


Whenever I notice that I have accumulated a number of items in one category, I will self-impose a ban when it comes to shopping. The latest ban? No sweatshirts, zip-ups, or hoodies. So yeah, looks like I totally ignored that ban with this latest post. BUT on closer inspection, maybe not? First off, this hoodie is not of sweatshirt material - it's super soft and thin fleece. Second, it's cropped and fitted - none of that loose oversize nonsense (which I totally love, btw).  Regardless of whether I broke my self-imposed ban or not, I'm totally happy with this purchase. I picked it up from Article& when I was in Brooklyn. I think this tops off my off-duty outfit perfectly.

Are you neurotic as I am with these self-imposed bans? What's your latest ban??
