Adrien: This Old Thing, Part II

This is what I wore to work on Friday: an outfit of mostly neglected things. I bought this top for basically nothing last year at Ann Taylor and then never wore it. Not once! And I have no idea why because it's pretty cute. Basically a t-shirt but it has a sheer section of trim around the neckline and a silver zipper up the back. I like interesting details like that so I finally decided to wear it.


My white jeans do not fall in the Neglected Things category and continue to be a spring/summer staple. I have no idea how I ever didn't have white jeans. My current pair is from Ann Taylor but I think my next pair will be something cropped like these. I can't say enough about the usefulness of a pair of white jeans. (Aside from trying to keep them clean, but YOLO, etc.)


I'm also wearing my currently-trendy silver Birkenstock Gizeh sandals which I've had for several years. I dug them out this summer determined to wear them more often. They are cute, but maybe not quite my style? What do you guys think?


My bag is my Marc Jacobs Stella which is a great, classic tote (similar MBMJ tote here) in a perfect neutral that I rarely use. This is getting ridiculous.


My necklace was a very sweet handmade gift from Mima who's Etsy shop is InfinEight. I wear it all the time but haven't posted it on the blog! It's the Signet Initial Typewriter Key necklace. Thanks Mima!

  1. Love the Gizehs! I have three pairs in different patterns. My first I loved so much that I wore them out and shelled out the $75 to have them re-soled at the Birkenstock store. First pair of shoes I've ever worn out, and I have a LOT of shoes!

    1. That is some serious shoe love! I've definitely been wearing my Gizehs more this summer.

  2. Love the Gizehs too! They give your feet a nice break from wedges

    1. Yes, I do secretly love Birks for their insane foot comfort.

  3. Just a quick comment because: it's late and I'm tired :) (it's bedtime in Japan) but wow, I think you should shop your stash more often- you look great in that outfit! And yes on the Birkenstocks- and yes on the t-shirt- you look young, fresh, pretty, natural, comfortable, hip with a casual elegant angle. Great jeans too

  4. She's a babe! Schwing!

    Interesting that you dug out your Stella ... I was just in the Marc Jacobs forum over at the Purse Forum having a moment over the Stella, as well as the Stam ... Marc, Marc, Marc, what HAPPENED to your LINE???
