I got this lovely white top and simple jeans from ShopUAL. I didn’t have much with me in Tennessee, but realized that I could easily switch up the look just with the shoes and the bag. I’m such a sucker for a printed floral dress in the summer than I need to remember that simple is sometimes the best.
As you can tell from my recent posts, reading has been a great source of comfort for me during COVID. I will read basically anything, so long as I get something from it.
I was so thrilled when I found at one of my favorite discount stores – ShopUAL – this Olympia Le Tan clutch made to look like one of my favorite books. Each book is handmade, and the cover has raised embroidery. I can’t wait to get back out in the world and use it.
Can you spot it below?
Since I haven’t worn heeled pumps in a year now, my feet refuse to tolerate anything but flat sandals or boots with a two inch heels or less. My trusty Isabel Marant Dicker boots were worn to the ground after 5 years of constant use, so I was thrilled to find these moto boots at 70% off. They are just as comfortable as they look, and should last at least another 5 years.
i have been feeling very eh about everything, especially my wardrobe, so i went to my old stand by billy reid. i haven’t bought anything there in years, but found some gems to bring home. the fabrics are so lovely and feel wonderful on.
i used my time in isolation to clean out and organize my portion of our shared closet. i believe in marie kondo’s advice that you should never clean your family’s possessions for them – it is too fraught with emotion and would lead to a fight.
as part of our renovations, we used the container store’s elfa system. custom closets were too expensive and didn’t seem worth the cost.
i still haven’t switched out my seasonal clothes, but that is coming soon. it makes me so happy to open the door.
gone are the days i choose to run around at work in 4 inch stilettos (except for my manolo bbs of course). i tried these on at the dior boutique while waiting for an appointment, and fell in love. the 3 inch feel is so much more manageable, yet still very elegant. the black swiss dot is so fresh and looks great with tights.
as promised, here are the other two shoes i bought during the sale. i also have the suede bbs in a hot pink that i love, and i just couldn’t resist the beautiful and delicate hangisis. i think these shoes and i will be very happy together.
okay, i have a confession. i hit up the manolo blahnik sale hard. the boutique, a nyc institution, is closing in december, which meant the selection was unreal. i am also back on the heel train at work after taking a break, and i am so thrilled to have these to chose from.
i treated myself to a beautiful pair of sandals from the summer sales from 24sevres. i usually don’t expect much from sale packaging, and was delighted when my purchase came with a personalized box and a paris pop up. oh and the shoes are pretty great too.
the calendar says it is spring, but the weather doesn’t agree. at least there are tulips, lilies, and pastel lace lovelies from lonely lingerie to get through these gray days.
