Yesterday: Easing into spring with a printed shirt dress from last year — in the archives here and here — and my trusty denim jacket. And a Doodle who refuses to cooperate with my end-of-the-day iPhone selfies because all he can think about is a car ride (he’s totally staring at the van).
Wearing: Viva Vena by Vena Cava dress, Kohl’s denim jacket, Lauren Merkin tote and Brian Atwood flats (both via Hautelook)
Monday: Aeropostale sweater, AE Hi-Rise Artist jeans, Nine West hat, Lauren Merkin bag.
Tuesday: J. Crew military shirt, DL 1961 Angel ankle skinnies, Brian Atwood flats via Hautelook, Lauren Merkin bag.
Wednesday: LC Lauren Conrad pleated skirt, Aeropostale tee, Cynthia Vincent flats via Hautelook, Lauren Merkin bag.
Thursday: INC tunic and leggings, NY&Co snakeskin belt, Michael Antonio booties, Lauren Merkin bag.
Things are getting really fancy around here. In the spirit of keeping the personal style element of this blog going in spite of an absent photographer — we’ve all seen what happens when I try to fly solo with a tripod – I give you these daily iPhone-propped-on-a-ledge selfies, with help from a recently downloaded timer app. Fancy!
This may become a new thing; a once-a-week roundup of what I wore. Since most of my outfits are pretty simple these days (hardly worthy of dedicated blog posts) and I wear the same stuff on repeat, this will be a good way to share without over-sharing. Keepin’ it real, and all that. Cool?
Now petite girls, gather ’round; I’m about to drop some knowledge…
High-waisted jeans with just a little flare are the best things to happen to us since six-inch stilettos. I love my American Eagle Hi-Rise Artists; they’re a great fit at an awesome price — $44.95, and almost always on sale. When I pull them on, I feel like a slightly taller/leaner glass of water. And as Martha would say, “That’s a good thing.”
I don’t shop at J.Crew often, but my search for quality basics (and a glass of wine) led me to their website during the after-Christmas sale.
Extra 40% off sale prices? Fill up the cart! Fill up the cart! Do we need it? Don’t think about it. Fill up the cart!
Please tell me you watch Girl Code.
Anywhoozle, these kinds of shopping sprees are typically followed by a good dose of buyers remorse, but everything I ordered from the Crew has been on heavy rotation. I think I’m really getting the hang of this edited wardrobe business!
