This week’s outfits theme seems to have been “the things I don’t wear very often” and rounding it out are these linen pants by Eileen Fisher. I received them last year and wore them quite a bit, but haven’t much this summer. I don’t know why I have such a hard time with them…maybe it’s the contrast that I see between my bottom half and top half when I wear pants like this? I also wish they were a little bigger and longer? And every time I wear them, I think I wish they were the Elizabeth Suzann florence pants in linen – I just love ES’s linen better and I think if I was able to find the right size I’d wear them all the time.
And this tee. Man, I love this tee, the color, style, everything. But the material is very thin (which I love), but I have to wash it every time I wear it because it gets deodorant stains at the armpits. I also somehow manage to get oil-based stains on it every time I wear it, either from cooking or eating, who knows.
Thanks to you guys using my referral link for Garmentory (when you use my link and sign up for an account at Garmentory, you receive a $20 account credit and so do I), I am able to order and try things from independent designers I love. My latest purchase should arrive today, and I’m super-excited/nervous about it.
I’ve been coveting an Agnes Badoo bag since I first spotted them, but have been primarily focused on this larger tote. I have several tote bags now that I love, so I don’t need another one, but I have also always loved the smaller crossbody bag. The problem is that whenever I buy a smaller bag, while I love it (Jerome Dreyfuss Bobi…Etc. Etc.) I never wear it and end up selling it. My general rule of thumb is that if it doesn’t fit my Comme des Garcons pouch (which contains all my necessary miscellany) along with my wallet, Baggu bags, another pouch and big sunglasses, I don’t carry it, so I never carry smaller bags.
But I WANT to pare down now, and the only way to do it is to force myself. I am tired of feeling like I have to have EVERYTHING with me all the time. If I commuted, or was away from home all day, that would be different, but for goodness’ sake, I work at home and drive everywhere…stay tuned next week to see how I do with that LOL.
My Nordstrom Anniversary sale order arrives today – I got these Eileen Fisher pants (in small), these Beyond Yoga quilted leggings, and this pair of Spanx boyshorts. What did you order? Has it arrived yet? What do you think? (my mom LOVES her Patagonia nano-puff hoodie!!)
Have you watched GLOW on Netflix yet? I devoured it (as I do) and loved every second. I was surprised I did, but the show was deeper than I thought it would be.
Random: I’ve been re-watching Sex & The City lately when I have some time to myself, and remember that episode where Charlotte frequents a shoe boutique and gets free shoes because the SA has a shoe/foot fetish? Well, I could swear it was the Robert Clergerie boutique by the script/logo on the shoes & boxes. I can spot a Robert Clergerie about as well as I can spot James Perse 🙂
I am reading The Source by James Michener at the urging of my husband (He LOVED IT) and it is SLOW going. I am not as into it as he was that’s for sure…
Working now. Nothing but work lately. Vacation is over 😉
An update on Dagny: She’s doing really well, we decided to take her off the prozac after only a short time on it because almost immediately, it seemed to make everything worse. She was constantly anxious – even more than before – and seemed to take longer to calm down. She became a zombie and didn’t want to do anything. Literally, nothing. She boarded while we were on vacation and they said she did well, and since she’s been home, she hasn’t had an episode, she devours every meal, and is back to cuddling on the bed again, something she hasn’t done in a very long time.
She needs much more exercise and play time than I can give her, so I’m going to take her to day care twice a week. We’re also trying some treats/supplements with CBD in them to see if that helps. And behavior modification if it seems like she’s getting anxious. So far so good. I am afraid that what was happening before was as much me as it was her; we were feeding off each others anxiety and it became a vicious circle.
Oh, and my sister got her biopsy results back and all is well. But on a related note, does anyone have any experience with Epstein-Barr virus?
What are you doing this weekend? Have a great one !!
