Little Shorty

16 Jun

Since my apartment is small, I still keep out-of-season clothing at home (home=where I grew up and until further notice it will always be “home”). The weather has been a little unpredictable with some really hot days this spring, making some days perfect shorts weather but alas, mine were at home. When I went to my lake house for Memorial Day weekend, I made sure to stop and pick up all my shorts in my closet at home. I quickly threw them in a bag and left. When I returned to my apartment I unpacked the shorts and decided to try them on and make sure they still fit I still liked them all. Well the good news is I only disliked one pair, the bad news, most pairs are not appropriate for my grown up life (this is my first summer in the real world). My current collection of shorts is casual and consists of madras, jean cut offs, and bright J Crew Chinos. All perfect for day time events but not suitable for evening activities in the city. This weekend my mission is to find some girls-night-out appropriate pairs.

This Trend Has Me Hooked

24 May

One of my favorite websites is style.com. They have fabulous coverage of fashion week, are always ahead of trends, and are the place to go for fashion focused news. This morning while browsing the site I discovered an article of an emerging trend, crochet. When reading about new trends, I often surprise myself by realizing I have already embraced it. (This happened here). Recently I purchased this vest and an open stitch sweater from express (no longer online), both crochet. I have recently found myself flocking towards pieces with crochet detailing. It can work for most any outfit. The detail can be whimsical and add a hippie feel or very defined and dress up an outfit. Here are some pieces I am currently lusting over:

 Isabel Marant, $237

 

 Chanel, $2,450

 

 Club Monaco, $169

 

 Alexander Wang, $850

 

 Forever 21, $29.80

 

Enzo Angiolini, $99
