Here’s what I wore recently!
What I wore it for: A fancy “gala” Trevor I went to, hosted by Yelp. It was a total bust in the making-random-friends category but I did like my vintage vibes.
Dress: Reformation (old, here’s something similar)
Shoes: Steve Madden
Bag: A true thrift score
A true work from the coffee shop outfit. This reminded me of my athleisure phase a few years ago. I’m still not over it. Comfy sneakers forever!
Shirt: Lysse (old)
Shoes: thrifted Adidas
I wore this to teach and I felt like the queen of the casino. No one batted an eye or commented on my leopard shirt, a good reminder that usually the only person thinking about my clothes is me.
Shirt: Thrifted Equipment (!!! I’m the most delighted)
Both of these outfits are me playing dress up when my Everlane order came in. I recently became an Everlane affiliate and got a couple of gifted items to try as a result. I requested two thing that have been on my “to replace” list for fall: Brown boots and a gray sweater. How about some mini reviews?
Everlane ReKnit Glove Boot: I got these in “toffee” because I loved the practical neutral but also thought they looked like nothing I had ever owned before. In person they definitely look like corduroy from a distance. They are soooo soft and don’t rub anywhere on me. I expected the fabric to be a little weightier when I ordered them, though, so they are not as holds-your-foot-in-place as I expected. This hasn’t bothered me much but I think they would be a bit impractical in truly cold weather.
Everlane Lightweight French Terry Mockneck: I’ve been looking for a very simple grey sweatshirt like this. I like mixing it with business clothes to look a little more casual and cool. So far this sweater has been so comfy I’ve worn it on our evening walk every night.
