Without entirely realizing it, it seems my entire outfit was “made in Austin;” both designers Esby and Miranda Bennett design and manufacture in Austin, and before my friends from Admonish moved to Dallas, they lived in Austin. So, shout-out to my previous hometown…
This Esby top is part of my latest order from Garmentory (with credits I earn via my referral link – if you sign up with my link you’ll get $20 to shop and I will get a $20 credit when you make a purchase). I wanted a casual, shorter linen top with an open neckline, and NOT black. I like the top a lot, but it is a bit more feminine than I would usually choose. It did go nicely with my hair up/cinched waist skirt yesterday though.
I’ve had a lot of issues with this Miranda Bennett skirt, but I’ve come to terms with them, and have worn it pretty frequently since I got it. I wish it had pockets and the waistband still frustrates me, but overall, it’s a valuable addition to my wardrobe and it should fit in nicely for years to come.
And hair. Funny, I got it cut the other day and promptly put it up (again). No, I have to put it up for Pure Barre and just left it all day yesterday. I like it a lot, and if you follow me on Instagram, you already saw a picture of it down.
I’m still getting used to the layers. And often I find it sort of Rachel-from-Friends-ish, but I love that it’s so much lighter and quite a bit more interesting than it was. I like it up more now, because I get pieces falling and framing my face. Next, I have to decide what to do about color, I’m a little bored with it as-is, and the cut removed a lot of the blonde…
