Eenvoud button back top (medium) | $90
First, a few of my favorite things at slowre right now. I particularly love the Ursa Minor jacket; look at the shape! It’s a heavier denim, so pretty structured, but a great warm layer for spring/summer in the office A/C. The Kordal skirt is coming soon, but you know I can’t resist that Ochre/gold color lately.
The Power of my People shirt is wonderful if you have shorter arms (like me!!) because they actually FIT. It’s beautifully made (in Canada), and really comfortable. I love the color, and it’s super-cozy in brushed cotton. Side note: I received a black linen philosopher shirt from the brand to review for you a couple weeks ago. I’ve not been able to wear it much since receiving it, but will now that it’s warmer, so I’ll hopefully have something up next week! Spoiler – it’s excellent 🙂
Finally, Eenvoud is a sustainable work-wear brand I featured a couple years ago here, and I was pleased to get this piece in recently. This is a lovely shirt (the color isn’t quite as bright as it appears on screen) with a lot of character, and excellent fit.
At the moment I’m wearing what I wore to Pure Barre, but today is warm, and rainy, so I’ll probably wear the aforementioned linen shirt, Rachel Comey jeans, and my Melissa X Baja East beach slides (I always wear my plastic shoes in the rain).
OH, look 🙂
I did place an order from Shopbop yesterday with the code: these linen James Perse pants, this JP cardigan, a white tee (sorry, I can never have enough white tees…), and bra. I’m really fixated on black linen pants, so I hope these work, but the size 2 might be too big. I’m going to be selling the Black Crane linen carpenter pants, BTW, I don’t have time to deal with tight elastic honestly. I wore them only around the house for a while a couple of days, and when I took them off and put something without a constricting waistband on, I knew I had to let them go.
And anyway, the more I thought about it, the more I really do want the black linen florence pants from Elizabeth Suzann. I just want a simple, wider leg, easy linen pant. Something not too fussy. Kind of like I planned in the beginning, huh? That was in my 2018 wardrobe plan wasn’t it LOL. As usual, I take a lot of twists and turns, and make a ton of mistakes before ending up in the right place. At least I usually end up there 🙂
Oh, and also, I ordered THE Ann Demeulemeester platform sandals from The Real Real which arrived yesterday. I may have mentioned that these are pretty much my holy grail “flatform” sandals, and a reader notified me they were there in my size + 20% off, so I just ordered without thinking much about it (they were returnable). I will always advocate trying to suck it up and just buy holy grail items if you can, because if you don’t (if I don’t…), I end up trying to find cheaper substitutes, and they never, ever, absolutely NEVER work out. So at the end of the day I usually end up wasting more money on trying to copy the HG item than I would have spent on the actual HG item.
Anyway, the shoes arrived, and seriously, they looked like they’d never been worn. And they were way less than 50% off retail. They’re beautiful, and everything I wanted in a sandal. But. They were like walking with bricks attached to my feet. The platform is hard and stiff, with absolutely no movement at all, so they were truly difficult to walk in. Now, I’m not new to the platform rodeo, but my platforms are generally made with crepe rubber, or have narrow scores in them to make them for flexible, so you know, you can WALK in them. This is why I am so devoted to Robert Clergerie.
I sent the shoes back immediately so I wouldn’t be tempted to keep them. That would have been crazy.
Ugh. This happens every spring…weather changes, and frustration with said weather changes leads to too much buying and quite a few mistakes. I’m finished now for a while. When I receive my money back from the sandals I’m going to order the ES florence pants and call it a day. Or maybe my Alabama Chanin collab dress will arrive soon and if I choose to send it back I can use the credit for the Florence pants. So frustrated by the wait time on that!! Has anyone received a shipping notification or an item yet?
Still nothing very exciting or worth talking about. That makes me sad 🙁
I’ve been suffering all week from allergies, so I’m really happy to be able to breathe through my nose today. My sister is here this week for work, so we’ve been just hanging out at home, but tonight we may go out for ramen, and tomorrow hit up Eileen Fisher on the way to the airport.
And I’m so mad at my hair right now, I hate it. I’m really just trying to keep growing the longer bangs out so they’re long enough so I can get it cut all one length again, into a short bob. I feel like I look like a boy lately. Which is fine if that’s what you want, but I don’t right now. Hopefully I can make an appointment for a cut next week.
How was your week? Any exciting plans this weekend?
