I’m wearing the Rag & Bone jeans again mostly because they’re the only pair of pants I have that go all the way down to my ankles. And it’s quite cold out today. Hopefully I’m making up for the holes in my jeans with the long cashmere cardigan LOL – at least that’s what I’m hoping!
I’ve realized that I do like to have a slim pant/jean in my wardrobe, but I’m not necessarily willing to invest in a pair right now. I sold my ES cecilia pants and then, of course, went on a search for a pair to replace them, but decided to live with these jeans as my “slim pants” for a while. They’re a lower rise and a little big at the waist, so I have to tug them up whenever I get up from sitting, but they’re not THAT uncomfortable, and I’d rather make do with these until next fall/winter than get a new pair of pants now. Sounds pretty smart and adult-like to me haha. Who am I right now??
Remember Virginia Johnson? This scarf is a decade old I think, and I haven’t worn it in years. I carry it when I travel sometimes as a blanket/scarf, but other than that, I don’t wear scarves much at home anymore. And it’s just SO BIG and bulky, I’ve been wishing for a smaller, more narrow scarf lately (I lost my Chan luu scarf somehow), but am not willing to invest in one while I have this one that’s perfectly good. Anyway, Erica from A History of Architecture posted on Instagram with her camel scarf, which was always the one that got away for me (by the time I was able to buy one the camels were sold out and I got “pebbles” instead), and Virginia herself left a comment that she may bring it back eventually. THAT would be hard for me to resist, even though I’ve just said I’m over such large scarves. Ha. Back to not so smart LOL
And lest we forget that I have hips. I’ve been wearing such oversized or not-fitted pieces lately that it’s hard to tell there’s a body under there. But there is. And it is HIPPY!! I wore this dress on Friday when it was warmer here for a second (this is the dress I can only wear under very narrow circumstances – not hot, not cold) and was pleased to bare my legs comfortably and show my body a little bit.
I’ve been working like crazy to get all the consignment items for slowre I have in my posession up this week and next to focus on ones that are incoming. I’m going to the Atlanta-area on Saturday to visit my mother for her birthday and then coming back on Tuesday with my sister and niece who will be spending the week here, so I’m trying to get as much done now so we can have fun next week. Anyway, I’m getting roughly 20 new items up tomorrow and 20 next week, and I’ll be taking a lot of outfit shots with some things that are in stock and/or on sale right now.
How is your week going?
