We had real summer weather last week, and the threads about summer dressing inspired me to wear shorts. To be fair, even our "summer" weather is quite mild, so the shorts outfit needed a light sweater for part of the day.
Photos 1+2: What I wore. Gap boyfriend shorts, Everlane silk, Madewell sweater, Rag & Bone loafers.
I've bought a few things recently and as usual I can't decide which are winners and which should go back. Here are a few:
3+4: Everlane cotton tee dress. I think I love it. Will bring it on my trip this week as a casual but sharp outfit.
5+6: Proenza Schouler cotton shirt on deep discount from the Rack. I love sleeveless button downs, so I think this is a keeper, but I wonder if I should go down one size? It's still expensive so I want it to be great.
7: My new high waist skinny jeans (also in 5+6). They'll stretch out (so far they squish my tummy too much). I'm having trouble with my body image in these - I went up two jeans sizes and I feel weird. But the high waist is needed for cropped tops and these are better than the zillion others I tried. The brand is Neuw.
8+9: Dolman sleeve jacket from Aritzia. I really wanted this to work because I have nothing I can wear over bulky tops, and it's been a huge wardrobe hole. I might keep it just because of that, but I don't love it. What do you think?
