L’Agence tee (n/a, but sometimes these show up on Gilt. This is an AMAZING tee – I love how it drapes – but it got holes very quickly. Luckily, if I tuck it in or fold it under, no one has to know)
Loft skirt (use code FRIENDS for 40% off)
Camper Damas sandals
Lizzie Fortunato necklace (n/a)
Jas M.B. bag
O.M.G. I’m going insane with all these friends & family codes. So far, I’ve just used them for things I “NEED,” but the Saks one is tempting me into “WANT” territory…Although I guess this skirt from Loft isn’t exactly a “NEED,” but I always wish I had a slimmer, column-style skirt that’s NOT JERSEY, so I sucked it up and got this one for 40% off. I’m wearing a size small (whoa.) and it fits well, if even a little big in the waist. It’s lined, and has a nice slit up the side, so you don’t need to wear a slip with it. And it has POCKETS. Designers, please put pockets in EVERYTHING. thank you.
And oh, Everlane is bringing back the silk blouse in a few new colors on Wednesday – I’m excited, I’ve been waiting for a gray one, or blush one to come back in stock. Does anyone have one? I’m afraid to get anything but the large; how do they fit?
Also, who got the James Perse Ruched pencil skirt with 25% off at Saks?? I hope all you guys who wanted it were able to snatch it up!!! I see they still have sizes 1,2 & 3 available. If you’re on the fence, just GET IT (here it is on me last week). You can always return it if you don’t love it. I wear a size 3, although could probably take a size 2 now; it would be a little more snug and hold my saddlebags in better 😉
Tomorrow I’m working on a video with all of my favorite holy grail beauty products because I think I might have finally settled on a routine that works for me…and there are some things I’ve bought recently that I’m OBSESSED with (HALO, for one). Stay tuned!!
Happy Monday 🙂

On an unrelated note, you look great, Grechen- in this pic you can really that your hard work is paying off!
I got my JP skirt! Thanks Grechen.
You look sleek and chic!
yay!! you’re going to love it 🙂
thank you!! honestly, it doesn’t feel that hard right now…except when i walk past the jelly bellys at the grocery store. ugh 🙁
i think i just found the right mix of exercise & eating that works for me.
I have another question about this JP skirt. Does it look significantly more narrow at the bottom? How easy is it to walk in it? I don’t like tube skirts that restrict my walking. Still undecided if I should get one or not…
it definitely narrows at the bottom, like all pencil skirts. it does restrict movement a little, but my stride isn’t very long anyway, so i don’t really notice it. it’s only really an issue when you first put it on, once you walk around in it for a while, it’s not noticeable at all. i have really never considered it a problem…
Thanks! How does it fit in the waist? I’ve always had size 3 in JP skirts but I’ve never owned anything this fitted, so wonder if size 3 is still the way to go?
i wear it pretty high and right now it’s a bit loose on me, but i would say if you usually take a size 3 in JP, stick with the size 3…
Thanks again! I’d wear it more on my hips, and I’m tall, so maybe size 3 is best. Hmm…

I am totally going to look for that skirt on LOFT – it is awesome!! You look pretty awesome btw 🙂
You look great in that skirt! I have a similar one that I bought last year (or the year before that???) from the GAP after you talked a lot about maxis (well, you’ve always loved a good maxi, right?), but you totally converted me. They are SO easy for me in the summer (forget about shaving my legs…I can wait another day!). So, I’m totally looking forward to your beauty bests video!!
These F+F bonanzas are getting out of control. What’s tempting you at saks? I really like a pair of apc sandals but they seem sold out in my size/color… Boo!
i had these vince “gladiator” sandals in my cart for a while, also wanted these rag & bone sandals but they were gone in my size, i’m obsessed with these ishvara sandals, but ended up with these strappy black sandals by ishvara because i’ve needed/wanted a strappy, simple pair forever…
LOVE the necklace! I really need to find one that is that style!
