Madewell

Silk And Denim

| , , , , , ,

When I first ordered these Equipment shorts, they felt like pajamas. Actual flimsy-flamsy silk pajama shorts that when you hold them up to the light become 100% transparent. I showed them to my mom, who was up visiting at the time, and she was as confused as I was as to how one wears these thin, yet ridiculously comfortable shorts in public. And then I put them on and it was like magic! They were not even remotely see through nor did the material seem too thin. They run a bit big so I recommend sizing down but nonetheless they feel easy and effortless. And nothing pairs better with leopard than denim, right? I’m convinced that no one does denim or chambray quite like Madewell, except maybe it’s sister store J.Crew. I have quite a few denim/chambray long sleeve button downs that make their rounds in my wardrobe but this is my first sleeveless and has probably been my most worn shirt this summer. It may rival my L.L Bean tote, shown above, for the most worn item. I bought this tote in hunter green and camouflage a few years back and I swear it has been a lifesaver. I carry it everywhere – to work, on vacation, to the beach and it holds everything. The only down side is that it doesn’t have any inside pockets so I end up carrying tons of little clutches inside to help divide everything up neatly. Who’s a tad OCD? Certainly NOT me.

Bits and Pieces: Zebra

 photo zebra2.jpg photo Zebra6.jpg photo Zebra5.jpg photo Zebra4.jpgWhoever made up that ridiculous rule about no white jeans after labor day or not in the winter or only on a full moon in July (ok, I made that last one up) clearly was never able to style them properly.  Nothing looks more crisp or classic than a great pair of white jeans, a big cozy sweater and boots.  Bonus points if the whole outfit is white, but in my case I went with the next best thing – gray.  This is my second piece from Torn by Ronny Kobo (this striped number was my first) and I am loving the fit of the entire line.  The zebra pattern seemed interesting to me, but what completely sold me was when the sweater arrived and I tried it on – the material and texture was so soft I just didn’t want to take it off.  And naturally it went with my ridiculously large (but awesome) gray infinity scarf so it was a win-win all around.  Elbow length gloves can seem so formal but I love wearing them over a sweater to bring a little color blocking effect to an outfit (plus they keep me extra warm).  Now suede heels in newly fallen snow?  That is a rule I can say I definitely don’t recommend breaking.  Sigh.

When I texted my mother and said we were outside taking outfit shots in the snow, her response was “You are committed.  Or you should be committed.”
