Best. Outfit. Ever. I couldn’t have been more comfortable or happy yesterday with this outfit.
Side note: I might be able to live without pockets in pants. It’s really only an issue at home when I need to carry my phone around with me from office to kitchen to wherever. And if I’m out, I have a bag with me, so who needs pockets? I do demand pockets on my person when I travel, for phone, papers, etc., but otherwise, I think I’m starting to realize I can get by without them.
I placed an order yesterday for the Elizabeth Suzann Clyde culottes in black, size 8 short – WITH POCKETS. They’re a holiday gift from my mom 🙂 I definitely want another pair of Florence pants, probably linen, but before that I wanted to try the clyde culottes, because I do love the clyde pockets…
I waffled A LOT on sizing before settling on 8 short. I love that Liz is trying to really accommodate sizes and provide detailed fit information but it’s almost paralyzing to decipher! For me anyway. My bust is 33.5″, waist 29.5″ and hips 41″ which puts me pretty firmly in size 8, but my older Clydes are a size 6 and after wearing for a while, they stretch a ton. But from reading reviews, it seems that the culottes are slimmer at the hips, so hopefully I won’t be disappointed and have to exchange them. It’s so stressful ordering ES because of the wait time to exchange.
Also, the Rhodes sweater is coming back on 12/12 for $285 in three colors up to size XL. I almost returned this sweater after I bought it earlier this year, but it’s turned out to be a great addition to my wardrobe. I’m wearing a medium, so honestly, I think it runs pretty small, but it fits like I’d want it to: perfect length, and beautiful at the waist/arms/etc. It’s not always the easiest piece to wear, you have to pair it with the right bottoms, and the silk florence pants are it. Hopefully the Clyde culottes will work well with this sweater also. And if I needed more warmth, I could easily throw my Rebekkah kimono over top and a scarf.
After my denim post this week and watching Liz’s story on Instagram featuring ES staff wearing Sig 4 pieces and showing us what she bought (and making me want literally EVERYTHING), I wonder why I even bother with jeans anymore. Really. I do love them, but they’re so much trouble for me, and I don’t wear them as much as I used to. I am happier lately wearing dresses or any of my ES pants than I am wearing jeans. In her comment on the post, Mustard joked about the “No Jeans Club” and I think I’m about ready to join. Who’s with us??
I haven’t received any of my orders from the weekend yet, ugh. Hopefully everything will arrive today and I’ll be able to provide some feedback on my JP sale purchases and you can too! Speaking of the JP sale, they’re adding new items to the sale in the morning (Saturday), so it’s worth taking a look again – sometimes they add some really great pieces towards the end! (sadly free shipping is no longer available though)
Nothing very interesting, sadly. No time lately…Any suggestions??
Tomorrow, Leo and I are headed out on a road trip. We’re driving to Orlando (stopping in Mississippi Saturday night), Leo’s driving to Atlanta on Monday, I’m flying to Atlanta from Orlando on Wednesday, and then we’re driving back home the following Saturday. Phew. Long story, but he had to evict his tenant from the condo in Atlanta last month, and has decided now (finally) to try and sell it since it’s empty, and is going to try and deal with that ASAP. And since we didn’t get to see my dad and step-mom over Thanksgiving, we’re taking a not-so-little detour on the way, down to Orlando to see them for a little while.
I’m excited, but it’s a whirlwind trip!! And lots of driving…
I hope you have a great weekend!!
