Dressing Up A Dressing Down | Adidas Floral Sweater & Black High-waist Pants

There have been a lot of days when I just wear the first things I see without caring much what the end result is. Seriously, a lot of days.
A. Lot.
(And those days are not documented for this blog, obvs.)

But then there are also days when I just do not have the energy or care enough to dress up but want to look somewhat decent anyway, knowing I will be in a public environment where the chance of me bumping into someone (whose opinion of me I somewhat care about) is pretty high.

I mean, you guys know those days, right? Well, this simple sweater + pants combo is a perfect example of what I'd be wearing on those days.

First of all, I don't know if it's just my obsession with it or if there's a real science to it, but I always find that a simple pair of casual plain black pants is somehow always automatically elevated when it's:
(1) high-waisted, and
(2) wide-legged.

I'm constantly on the lookout for more black pants that tick those two boxes but have yet to succeed, meaning this exact pair I have on here is a treasured piece of mine. Fun fact: I got it from H&M more than FOUR years ago (!).

PS: Check out the first time I wore the pants with a clapboard clutch!

I'm a lover of good quality oversized sweaters, too; just French-tuck one into your pants and you look like you just made an effort dressing up when it is, in fact, your dressing down day.

And, well, I suppose a cool logo sweater doesn't hurt either, amirite? Adidas makes good oversized stylish ones that are perfect for hijabis like me. Their men's sweaters are my jam — although they are a bit too pricey for me. This Adidas x Manchester United by the way is another treasure of mine.

So, what do you dress up in on the days you want to dress down?
