Adrien: Keepers.

This is what happens when you're all, "Oh, right. Outfit pic. Whoops." Then I realized that everything I'm wearing is something that ended up being a really good purchase. Every single thing is something that's given me that,  "I'm so glad I bought this" moment. This $20 Olive & Oak blouse doesn't photograph very flatteringly, but I have worn the everloving shit out of it. (You can see it here and here and here. Yawn.) Just so easy to wear and the pattern makes me happy. 

The jeans I'm wearing are 7 For All Mankind Slim Cigarette. These were a splurge and they've been such a workhorse for me that they've more than earned their keep. My pair is the velvet version and they are so comfortable and can pass for work-appropriate in a pinch.

My MBMJ Kirsten Globetrotter bag (long gone, but it's on eBay and this one is SO good) and Frye Emma flats are both more recent purchases but they've been things I've been using/wearing a ton lately. All these things went with me on my recent trip to Chicago, as I attempted to only take clothes I actually wear. (What is it with me and packing? I always lose my mind and want to pack my closet orphans. Like my sad, unworn clothes need a vacation?) 

You can't really see my jewelry, but I'm wearing a Giles & Brother bracelet and my House of Harlow mini sunburst necklace. 


  1. I like the blouse! If that counts as not photographing well, more power to it IRL!

  2. Looking good! May I ask if you use any hair serum for shine, or do you rely on highlights at the salon? Your hair looked really nice and glossy in the photos! ~Anon. L.

    1. Nope, just my salon color, as you guessed. Thanks!
