The pink eye came back. I really can’t talk about it.
After MANY years of fabled legends, I FINALLY got myself to that Jeremy’s store in Berkeley where they send all the leftover Anthropologie clothes. They do indeed have many many many Anthropologie t shirts, but it was a little overwhelming and full of Berkeley dipshits and you sort of had to be in a digging mood. I did buy this t shirt though, for $19, and I really love it.
Oh, someone asked about booties. Ok, so, I also was trying to figure out that situation and I entered “booties and jeans” into Pinterest and here is what I have concluded – you can either wear them with cropped skinnies, which I don’t own, or you can wear a pair of jeans with not too much width/length at the bottom and tight roll them. Yes, I just recommended you tight roll your jeans. The apocalypse is nigh.
Target blazer (in stores right now, you should buy it!), AE artist crops, Etsy pin, Hive & Honey booties.
This was one of those outfits I stole from the clothing layouts on Pinterest…you know the ones where the clothes aren’t on a person, they’re just a bunch of different outfit pieces stuck together in a layout? I love those because it’s so easy to how you can create the same look with stuff you have, but I also sort of hate them because sometimes those clothes don’t end up looking on a real person (me) the way they do flat on the computer screen layout. But they are really good for ideas. Anyway,

The Banana Republic Outlet had a fire sale last weekend, let me tell you. Also, I think someone who wore my exact size returned a bunch of stuff late in the game and it was marked down to essentially free. These pants are AMAZING, were the perfect length for me, and were $15. I am sure that wide legged linen pants are hopelessly uncool this season or whatever, but that’s not really how I decide what I like to wear. For me, these perfectly embody one of my very favorite fashion aesthetics, which is what I like to think of as “What Meg Ryan Wore In All All Her Movies In the Nineties.” They made me very happy the whole day when I wore them, although they do photograph oddly bunchy in the area South of the Border, they are not so in person, I promise. AND the day I wore them a mom told me I always looked “so cute” and introduced herself to me at school, so win! Me and my pants get a gold star.
Also Old Navy scarf, Gap ribbed tank, J. Crew wedges, Old Navy denim jacket.
All of this is from the Banana Republic Outlet. I would really like to hear other ideas of things to wear with this shirt. (it’s ponte and has gold buttons on the sleeves if that helps.) I really love it and I thought it seemed so versatile and flattering and then once I got it home I could literally think of nothing to wear it with besides jeans. Got any ideas?
These crops DO say “Banana Republic” down the side where they are folded over, and even though I have a deep seeded horror of anything proclaiming a store name on it, they were $20, fit me perfectly, and I’ve been looking for plain dark cropped jeans for two years, so I am just going to pretend that situation is not going on. Erik said if anyone had their face close enough to my leg to see what it said on the cuff of my jeans, I had other problems anyway and not to worry about it.
Also copied from Pinterest. Trying to wear as many of my summer clothes as I can before it’s freezing blanking cold. I loved this outfit. Also, jean jacket? (From Old Navy). Excellent purchase. Love it.
Target tank, target necklace (last summer), Old Navy denim jacket, thrifted skirt, Toms of Doom.
My face looks very pale and bloated this week. Damn hormones. Time to sit in the sun and pound water.
