What I Want to Be Wearing RN.

Here are three random trendy things I want to be wearing immediately:

Look No. 1: The Bodysuit and Trouser 

I’m v. into bodysuits (love that you don’t need to constantly adjust/re-tuck, and they make your body look amazing), and I’d like to pair this ribbed style ($38 — or check out this one if you’re not into ribbing) with these ladylike trousers ($395) and Aquazzura powder puff kitten heels ($650 << don’t know why they cost $650 at BG when they cost $795 elsewhere, but…their loss!).  DAMN.  I feel like I’d run the world in this outfit — it gives me chills!

Look No. 2: The YSL Loulou Heart Shades

Whimsical and silly expensive, these YSL shades ($490) are le talk of le town right now and all over street style starlets, including Giovanna, shown above.  Good news: you can get the look for less with these.

Look No. 3: The Puff Sleeved Blouse

The exaggerated-sleeved blouse is the new off the shoulder top — basically, the trendiest shirt you can reach for right now.  I’m eating it up with a spoon; see inspiration below (the last shot is of Jenny Walton, who I am legit obsessed with and is wearing Ulla Johnson below).  Caroline Constas is a major player here, and my gateway drug was this blouse (also available in more versatile denim), on ridiculous sale, which I’ve worn about 34 times this season.  It is super flattering (the fabric has a nice amount of stretch in it) and beautifully made and the print is a little out of my comfort zone so I went for it.

At the top of my lust list — likely because I’ve been watching The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and I’m into all of the 50s era nipped waists, oversized buttons, and ladylike cuts — is this stunning SEA dress, which looks like a perfect pick for a town hall wedding or bridal shower or mother-of-the-bride dress at a more casual wedding:

Other puff sleeved beauties:

+This Johanna Ortiz, on ridic sale.

+This striped blouse (on sale!)

+This blouse in the coolest tangerine color.

+This well-priced puff-sleeved sweater!

+This more understated style (50% off)!

+This pinstripe style (under $75).

+This Gap steal in the blue/white cabana stripe!!!

P.S.  Love this dress — very of-the-moment with the puff sleeve and midi length.  Check out their sale section, too — so many epic finds, like this and this.

P.P.S.  My beloved mini steamer just pooped out, may she rest in peace.  I was about to snag a second, but wondered about upgrading to a Rowenta.  I steam my clothes A LOT.  Even t-shirts.  I have been super impressed with the results of my Rowenta iron so…?

  1. Aiee yes Jenny Walton’s style is en pointe / always impeccable. But (and I know this is petty/gossipy of me) it kind of weirds me out that she’s marrying Scott Schuman… he’s like my dad’s age!

    1. She is stunning — I love her Instagram! She’s so sassy and spritely but also elegant and sophisticated! The best!!

  2. You would DEFINITELY run the world in that gorgeous outfit!!! Go girl!
    Oh, and FYI…. you can never go wrong with Rowenta!

    1. YES! I’m so glad you suggested Rowenta over whatever bargain brand I was looking at. I love the iron!!
