First and most obviously, I received my Elizabeth Suzann linen florence pants and decided to keep them. They arrived by surprise – I didn’t get a shipping email or anything – right before we left for the beach, and I’ve worn them constantly since then. The medium is definitely the right size, and regular the right length. My only “problem” with them (and all wide leg, elastic waist pants) is that they just pool to the floor when I have to use the bathroom. I don’t mind this at home, but rest areas? airports? EWWW. I did wear these home on our 15-hour drive from Florida and regretted it the first time we stopped for a bathroom break. Ugh. I have to keep hold of them so they don’t fall and that is a pain. I mean, sure, I realize what I’m complaining about, but still.
Also, I got a nice gift from Entireworld last week of this tee I’m wearing, another cropped one and a pair of their new organic cotton panties. I have worn everything at least twice already, and this tee 4-5 times in about a week. Yes, the website is really tough to navigate and I hate the music playing in the background that I can’t seem to turn off, but the products are fantastic. I really really really love this tee. They sent me a large, which is probably one size too big, but this style runs small I think, so I wouldn’t want a small in it. The crew neck is perfect (it lays flat. yay!) and washes well, still holding it’s shape. The panties are also great – I got a bikini pair in medium. And they’re a good price for organic cotton IMO. I’ll write more about my overall thoughts in another post.
Finally, has anyone shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary sale? Every year I take a look, and sometimes I buy things, but most of the time I return them, and/or find the selection underwhelming AND disappointing (did you know that most of the designers participating in the sale make pieces that are exclusive to the sale?).
I keep going to the site, first, to watch the video of David from Schitt’s Creek OVER AND OVER AND OVER again 🙂 Also, because I could use one or two more pairs of Retro Thongs by Hanky Panky, and I keep checking to see if the Patagonia pullover I had in my cart the first day comes back in stock… (which it actually did as I was writing this, but only in the off-white color, which I don’t want. Ugh.). I’ll just wait for the REI sale this fall for Patagonia.
There are some nice James Perse dresses on sale for the anniversary sale, but I’m good on JP dresses for now (something I thought I’d never say!!). Otherwise, I am not tempted by anything at all. How about you?
That’s it for now, I’ll write about vacation/thoughts/etc. later in the week.
I missed you guys!!
