Some days I just want an easy, comfortable outfit. And like 99% of new moms, I am tempted every morning by sweat pants or yoga pants. But just because I gave in to a soft jersey today doesn’t mean I have to look like a total frumpy slob. I prefer to think of this is sweat pants with style… :)
Today’s outfit is all about summery textures. A fringed bag, handmade shell necklace, and a crocheted dress with knotted thread detailing all come together to elevate a simple silhouette and keep things interesting. What are your favorite textured pieces for warm weather?
I’m not exactly what you’d call a festival girl. I love the fashion scene, but aside from that, it’s too much of, well, a scene for me. That being said, I take advantage of LA’s nearly-year-round warm weather to wear all of my festival-appropriate tasseled, fringed, cropped, and high-slit clothing.
I’m pretty sure knee-high gladiator lace ups are the ultimate summer sandals. Yes, flip flops are great, but they say “I went the easy thoughtless route.” They also do nothing for your legs. (And when it’s warm out, you should be showing them off and making them look as good as possible.) Now, having to spend 5+ minutes in the morning to adjust your laces to be symmetrical and perfectly tight… that shows true dedication to properly accentuating your shins.
Today I’m doing two shades of denim for an easy outfit for some errands around town before heading to Palm Springs tomorrow. The boots were my Rachel Comey sample sale treat and this bag was a Mother’s Day gift and I absolutely love it. Super soft suede, functional patch pockets, and an optional shoulder strap (which I prefer so I can free up an arm). My kid’s got great taste, right? :)
Today marks the last day of school for quite a few. So, to celebrate, here’s a casual outfit perfect for a summer day kickin’ it with my fave old school game, Ms. Pac-Man.
When you are attending a bowling birthday party, there is only one right thing to do… dress themed.
I purchased this dress for a number of reasons: (i) I love the zipper and mesh detailing, (ii) It is incredibly well-made for the price point, and (iii) Its thick and stretchy material is super comfortable and makes bra-less look really good! Due to that last reason, it is my choice for a day out and about and I played up its sportiness by wearing it with my new running shoes.
