HELMUT Helmut Lang leggings | mine are the HELMUT line, and a few years old, these are similar
Everlane loafers | waitlisted in black – I took my normal size
Inhabit boiled wool cardigan | medium
Margot Wolf necklace
Admonish bag (coming soon!) | not mine, I was just trying it on
If you follow me on Instagram, you already saw that my friends Admonish were in town from Austin this weekend for FashionXDallas to showcase their new collection of bags. They are AMAZING. I’m partial to this distressed leather half-barrel bag, but the backpacks were getting most of the attention during the show. I’ll let you know when their online shop is back up and how you can buy them, but for now, just enjoy how beautiful they are. And check out their Instagram account for updates and more pictures of the new bags.
I decided to ditch the capsule wardrobe experiment (more on that later), but I did practice wearing things more than one day in a row this weekend and wore my new Inhabit sweater and Everlane loafers both days hanging out with my friends. The loafers are definitely breaking in; I walked a lot in them this weekend. I did get a blister on my right foot from a little rubbing on my heel, and that’s the foot that seems bigger than the other, so it still squeezes my pinky toe a little, but overall, they were comfortable, and I’m glad I stuck with my regular size 8.
The Inhabit sweater was something I sort of had to convince myself to keep when I got it during Shopbop’s F&F code, but I’m glad I did. It’s BIG. But it’s supposed to be. And the shape is definitely unconventional, which is why I bought it in the first place. It’s super-cozy though, and warm (maybe too warm for 60’s…), and I got a ton of compliments on it, so I’m glad I kept it. It does pill like crazy, and sheds a little, but I sort of expected that. I don’t really know how to avoid that…
I hope you had a great weekend, and a lovely week ahead. Any interesting plans?
And tell me, how many days in a row can you wear something, aside from when you’re traveling? I’ve always had a hard time wearing the same thing more than one day at a time (EVEN when traveling), but I’m trying to get better at it.
