Had a little break from my denim obsession for a while, but when my office decided that denim was the new norm, I retreated back to the days when I was a student and started eyeing every pair of denim that I didn’t own. I have been looking for a pair of relaxed skinny denim for a while now, but couldn’t find one that was quite right. I finally settled on these AG The Beau slouchy jeans, which are the perfect shade of blue and just the right amount of fading. I think I probably could have gone down a size, if such was available, but despite the hip slippage, I still find myself reaching for these fairly often.
These suede pumps are from Ann Taylor and they are beauties. However, I do find the edges of these shoes to be quite a bit sharper around the heel and ankle opening than the leather version. I will need to put in some heel pads and rub the edges down to help soften them up, otherwise I foresee plenty of bandaids in my future. They also come in a gorgeous red and navy blue. Consider going down a half size if your feet are on the narrower side.
I had been searching for a good quality cozy, off-the-shoulder sweater for a few months and I finally fount it in this AQUA cashmere sweater. I was a bit apprehensive trying it, because basically all kinds of wool makes me itch, but I had absolutely no problems with this. It is tunic length on me, but a little tucking in of the hem gives it a different look. Right now, this sweater is 25% off at Bloomingdales. It’s still rather pricey, but If you are looking for an off the shoulder sweater that isn’t made of acrylic or an itchy wool material, I absolutely recommend this.
Also a note about my most recent absence from the blog. While work has gotten [a lot more] chaotic, my camera recently turned into a brick, so I’m without a camera for the next little while until I can get a replacement–hopefully sooner rather than later! For now, I’ll have to dig into the archives and see what I can come up with.
When I spotted this blue suede jacket on Kelly, my eyes nearly popped out of my head. The color is insanely beautiful and unique for a suede jacket. And yet being navy blue, still so versatile. I tried for days to resist buying it, but I eventually gave in. And do I have any regrets? Definitely not!
I opted for a size Small, using Kelly as a point of reference. She if quite narrow-shouldered, while I have a more athletic set, so I know that if she fits into a particular size, I almost certainly have to size up at least one size above her. And the sizing was right on. The jacket is also somewhat heavier than I was expecting, but I’m quite happy about that. For $198, this is quite a steal, but I’ve also seen this on sale at 6pm.com for around $130! They don’t seem to be in stock right now, but if you dig this jacket, keep an eye out for it! It also comes in a gorgeous burgundy color.
