Outfit // James Perse Wild Rose

The James Perse sale is ending soon!! Who’s placed more than one order? I stuck to just one this time, and I’m happy with that. I’m realizing lately that I bought because I COULD and because I wanted to, not because I needed anything. Sure, I could rationalize all I want that I needed this shirt or that skirt, or whatever, but with few exceptions, I didn’t.

What I’m Wearing

Boyfriend Jeans for the Thick of Leg

I love my legs. I decided when I was in Amsterdam visiting the Anne Frank house (observing people go up and down the narrow staircase on crutches or with a great deal of effort) that I would never be frustrated about my body again. My legs may be thick & “athletic,” but they are strong, and I can rely on them to get me where I’m going. I can walk miles and miles around cities and up mountains thanks to my legs. BUT. It’s very frustrating finding jeans that fit lately.

Outfit // The Simpler, The Better

This Loup dress is another dress I decided to keep, even though I was toying with getting rid of it. Honestly, I love it, but haven’t worn it in forever. I got it a couple years ago with a Refinery29 deal – remember those? It’s so unique and fits very well, if a little big. My husband likes it, which is a big reason why I’m keeping it. I didn’t think I needed to have both this one and the Lanston dress, but they’re different enough, and at this point, I have room for both while I decide if I need to purge one of them.

The Minimal Closet : Questions

As you know, I’ve been exploring a more minimalist lifestyle/closet lately, and have read a lot on the subject. I’m still learning, and feeling my way through it, with the understanding that there IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG WAY TO DO THIS, nor is one person’s minimal lifestyle the same as another’s. Starting next week, I’m going to publish an “essay” a week on things I’ve learned, and what I’ve done as part of my “The Minimal Closet” series, but first, I want to explore some questions I’ve been asking myself. Maybe you have some thoughts on them?

This Week // Neutral Nails

I cannot keep colored nail polish on anymore. I just want them neutral. In the picture above, I’m just wearing the Julep nail treatment, but yesterday I painted them with Chanel Emprise, but was over it by the evening, so I removed it. I don’t know – lately, color on my nails is just too jolting. Sometimes I will just use this Butter London nail foundation, which I also really like. It’s more natural nail colored and matte than the Julep treatment, which is pink-ish.
