cropped & casual

0 Permalink 8

  i don't know if you've been shopping recently but i swear shirts are getting more and more cropped by the day. for someone with a long torso, this recent development doesn't bode well for me. HOWEVER, since adopting a higher rise pant/jean as my cut of choice, it has made the transition a bit easier. ...

  we may be a couple weeks past april 25th (the perfect date), but i will say, the weather has been really great lately. not too hot, not too cold, and all you need is a light jacket. speaking of light jackets, the dried herb version of this jacket finally arrived last week and it's even better ...

  the more i hone in on my personal style, the easier i find shopping to be. now that i know what silhouettes work on my body, i can scroll through a batch of new arrivals and quickly deduce which items have the potential of becoming wardrobe heroes. so when madewell released more of their late spring/early ...

button-front wide-leg jeans two ways

0 Permalink 6

  no real introductions needed, it should come as no surprise that i love these jeans. the button-front detail, the wide-leg silhouette, the cropped and unfinished hem. it's like madewell designed them with me in mind. they fit true to size (i'm in the 26) with a generous 10 1/2" rise (that rhymes!) that cinches your ...

  i mentioned in this post that this blouse caught me by surprise. i don't normally wear a lot of prints (except for stripes!) so i was hesitant to add it to my closet at first blush. but the sleeves got me (they always do!) as did the fact that the pattern offered multiple pairing options ...

straw hats for summer

  between sun protection and hiding dirty hair, hats are crucial to my spring/summer wardrobes. personally, i love the ease and effortlessness of a straw hat. just like good pairs of denim, you can never have too many straw hats. i recently picked up this two-toned one from urban outfitters and it's the perfect wide-brimmed style ...
