The Long and the Short of It

I’ve been trying this J.Crew Endless Shirt with just about everything in my closet. Who would’ve thought that I would fall in love with this modern twist of the classic white shirt? I think it looks amazing under anything cropped, especially my Veda Max leather jacket.

Is it wrong to want more?

You’d never guess, because I can hardly believe it myself. This is my 500th post! 500 posts ago, I’m not sure I would have believed I would still be blogging, but here I am, in no small part to all of you who have supported me over the years, even through my long hiatus last year. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Also, some big changes are [hopefully] soon to happen, if I can just find some time and commit to it!

Now back to this post. I’ve owned these bermuda shorts for what has to be eight or so years now. Lately, I’ve seen them pop up in stores like Ann Taylor and BR as the “style of the moment” for shorts so I thought I’d break them out from storage and see if I could do something cool with them. I’m not really convinced, but what do you think?

Three

Club Monaco Lindy Wrap Trench / J.Crew Grid Blouse / Theory Max C Tailor Trousers (similar) / 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Satchel / LAUREN by Ralph Lauren Adena Pumps / Aldo Praema Rings

It’s turning into a problem. This is my third Club Monaco trench in as many years. There’s not much to say except that they’re beautiful and are made beautifully, which is why I can’t help myself. I tried this long version here from Zara, though much cheaper, it was way too long–it hit me about mid-calf! (Also see this one and this one.) Despite being more costly, I’m much happier with the quality of the Club Monaco version. It is partially lined, and falls above my knee cap. The soft drape gifts the trench a bit of a feminine touch, which admittedly, can oftentimes be lacking in my outfits.

If you’re interested in this, they’re going fast! So buy now, think later! By the time I get this post up, I think it might already be sold out on the U.S. site and limited sizes on the Canadian site. It also comes in navy blue, which is a great transitional color for the cooler temps.
