First, Magpies: AHHH. Technology. If you’ve been running into issues reading this blog, I am so sorry! I received tons of emails and messages letting me know that only the header of my blog was loading for many of you. I won’t bore you with the technical details, but I ended up making some changes so that the content is loading even though my blog does not have the right look and feel for the time being. Sorry, loves. I will figure this out! In the meantime, if any of you have experience in WordPress or know someone who does, please point him/her/them/yourself in my direction — I’m looking for some part-time support. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Incidentally, feel free to email me even if you aren’t a techie — I love mail and respond to every message I receive, whether it’s soliciting advice on what to wear on a first date or asking for the best thing to buy for a mother-in-law’s birthday.
Second: I have had a lot of family and friends in and out of town over the last five days, and have more coming into and out of town through the weekend, so I’ve been a litttttle backlogged. Sorry for the missing/late posts this week.
Third [most important]: All I’m wearing these days are feminine dresses that button down the front (#nursing) and/or anything denim–denim jacket, denim button-down, jeans, denim dresses. I just realized that I am a denim-a-holic. I think it somehow balances out the floaty femininity that I’ve been gravitating towards of late.
These chickadees get me on a deep level:
Get the look…
+A few weeks ago I snagged this ruffly floral maxi dress from Ralph Lauren Denim + Supply for around $125 and I’m obsessed with it–and now it’s marked down to $100! It’s sorta wildly dramatic — I feel like I should be riding a horse bareback in a field of wheat in it — and I dig it. I often feel just the slightest touch overdressed wearing it, but in a good way.
+I am foaming at the mouth (?) over this denim tie-shouldered mini. Everything I love about joveralls, but even cuter/more feminine. As an aside, I wore my uniform of white joveralls with a frilly floral blouse over the weekend and even my brother-in-law, who was visiting from out of town, complimented me! You know you look good when a brother-in-law comments on your look.
+Love this periwinkle blue color.
+YOU MUST own a denim jacket, and J. Crew does a great one: super-snug with a lot of stretch. (Also: 30% off today!) I ordered the smallest size possible (XXXS is a thing?), which fits reallllly trim. So trim I can’t button it up. But it prevents that boxy oversized unflattering look I’m not so into.
+Intrigued by the idea of wearing this denim maxi (??) with my Supergas (I own a pair in the gray, but I’m loving that blush pink hue!). Actually, v. into this idea and ordering the dress immediately.
