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: Spring Blouse With Boyfriend Jeans

| , , , ,

Sometimes I want to thank the person who brought back the boyfriend jean trend, if for no other reason than making eating comfortable. It gives a bit of a break from skinny jeans where salads are inevitable. And another silk blouse from Equipment, you may be asking? Yup. The silk is unbelievable to the touch and they fall so effortlessly on the body. A tad on the pricey side, but they do go on sale often and that is when I pounce. A little secret I also have is I pin all my favorite items from around the web to this pinboard, and then go back and check them regularly to see when they are discounted. I find so many great things when I am online shopping, yet always forget what I actually want to buy when the time comes. So this pinboard (I have one for beauty too) makes shopping so much easier. And I can visually see what is missing from my closet as well, and pin some pieces I need to help round it out more. A tad on the hyper-organized side? Yes, but it works for me. (and maybe for you too – a little over organization never hurt anyone)

Just looking at this white blazer gives me anxiety because I stress about getting it dirty, but I love how crisp and clean it looks. I think

Because I spend so much of my clothing budget on work-place friendly attire, I often forget about my off time/weekend wear. Pajama pants are not acceptable outside
