I hope that everyone is having a great weekend so far; just a quick update for today! I gave into the much-loved AG Stevie Ankle Jean from Anthropologie a few weeks ago after finally making it to the mall to try them on in person. I was super impressed and could immediately see why they get such great reviews–they are incredibly comfy, soft, stretchy, and the 27.75 inseam makes them great for petites! They are also a little dose of fun for the ol’ wardrobe, even a bit of a challenge perhaps, as I tend to stick mainly to a safe, neutral palette. Look at me here getting all wild & randy–look out! Next up I’ll be all out of control and drinking regular soda (not caffeine free!) and staying up past 10pm, I just know it.
I also picked up this mix fabric crepe jacket by Kimchi Blue at Urban Outfitters in the same shopping trip. It is light, airy, and perfect for layering over tanks in the heat of summertime. I do think it runs a little small–I sized up one size, and could have probably gone up even one more size if I wanted it to fit as loose as it does on the website model. I prefer my jackets to fit tight however, as if it they are giving me a firm, permanent hug, so if you
were hugged enough as a child and like a looser fit, adjust accordingly. I also grabbed it in orange, as it reminded me just enough of this beautiful Diane Von Furstenberg blouse that I’ve been lusting after in a similar color. So pretty!
I would also like to note that for those of you that missed out on the J Crew Perfect Patent Pump a few years back, it’s back! Kinda. They’ve made a few small changes (it isn’t patent and they have now dubbed it the “Valentina”) but the overall concept is the same with a sleek pointed toe and a low-enough-to-be-comfy-but-still-high-enough-to-not-be-boring heel. The “weathered rose” color is beautiful, isn’t it?
I have a pair in “vibrant coral” currently sitting in my closet and I think that they fit pretty darn true to size for J Crew shoes. They are a little spendy for basic pumps, but so worth it–I’ve literally worn holes into my dusty rose Perfect Patent Pumps from wearing them so much over the years! They are absolutely my favorite comfy heel to wear, bravo J Crew.
And last but not least, I neglected to notice that one pant leg was kind of rolled up when I took these shots; now my secret of being a super pale-white-girl-homie-mang-in-disguise-still-trying-to-make-it-happen-like-it’s-2007 has (apparently) been ruined. Sigh. Please forgive:
