If I were a…Bohemian Princess

I am NOT a bohemian princess by any stretch of the imagination, but every year when spring/summer comes around (seems late this year, no?) I CRAVE feminine, flowy, pretty, long, colorful dresses or skirts to wear with flat sandals. I never end up indulging that side of me, because it never really feels like “me,” but I do love to pretend.

What I’m Wearing

everlane silk tank review

Outfit // Everlane Silk Tank

You guys probably know by now that whenever Everlane launches something new, I’m first in line to buy it! And since I’m trying to give silk another try (I do have one of their silk blouses, but it’s in a color, and …silk…so I really don’t wear it very often), I was eager to try their new silk tank.

Outfit // James Perse 25% off at Shopbop

Well…I had to find an alternate location for my outfit picture today, so please excuse the background! Just wanted to show you the boxy henley by James Perse in case anyone was looking at it at Shopbop (25% off with INTHEFAMILY14!!!!). Also, I don’t think I’ve photographed my Frame jeans very much, but I end up wearing them all the time; they’re incredibly comfortable, and I love the wash. They’re still in stock in all sizes at Shopbop, so if you’re tempted, order them now.

splendid striped dress, 3.1 Phillip lim ryder satchel

Outfit // Splendid Stripes

See, I do know how to dress in more “flattering” shapes ;) This dress is killer, I only wish it was black & gray stripes instead of navy, and lighter blue. Details…It’s still great, and forget what they say about horizontal stripes on curvy girls, these CAMOUFLAGE all the puffy bits that I usually use spanx to hide; the stripes and the built in slip underneath help to make everything just a bit more smooth.

Outfit // Acne Studios dress in ROYAL BLUE

I’m not actually wearing this (still too cool, and not appropriate for Costco), but I wanted to show it to you anyway. I ordered this a couple months ago for a beach wedding we have coming up in May. I FELL IN LOVE WITH IT, and became obsessed, so I just decided to get it. Even though it’s obviously out of my comfort zone. Hello!! Cobalt blue!!!

h&m conscious collection

Thoughts on the H&M Conscious Collection

A few years ago I turned down my nose at the notion of buying “eco-friendly” clothing from big-box stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and H&M. My rationale was that one must consider the company from which you’re buying the item and the entirety of its environmental footprint – which would more than likely outweigh any of the positives you might have achieved by buying an organic cotton t-shirt from said retailer.

james perse dress, eileen fisher cone sandals, fashion blogger outfit, 3.1 phillip lim ryder satchel

Outfit // Officially….

I keep joking with people that now I’m officially old – I own a pair of Eileen Fisher shoes. It’s truly just a joke, because I honestly don’t associate Eileen Fisher with old anymore. Or maybe I do, it’s just that I am “old” now too – at least in terms of my simpler sartorial choices, and definitely compared to many of my fellow “fashion” bloggers…
