Outfit // James Perse Boxy Collage Top

james perse summer sale

So, yesterday was my big day out this week: I had to go to Nordstrom to return my leggings, to LUSH for deodorant, and to get my hair colored. Since everything is relatively close to each other, and 25 minutes away from where I live, I combined it all.


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.


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.


Outfit // Sweaty Betty harem Skirt


This is another one of those pieces I decided to keep, even though it’s not “perfect.” I’m discovering, during this journey towards having less, that perfect isn’t/shouldn’t be the goal. Good enough is just fine.
