Adrien: In-Between Weather.

I debated a bit about posting this outfit. It's not the most interesting thing I've ever worn and the lighting that morning was terrible, but eh. There are things I like about it and it does a decent job (bad lighting aside) of my general outfit philosophy -  simple clothes, interesting details.

I'm wearing a Banana Republic slub tee that I really quite like. Slub tees tend to have a good drape and the texture makes it more interesting. Banana generally does an okay job with the slub tops and I am hopeful about this cobalt blue scoop neck version! I also think this ruffle hem top is really cute but probably not for me. I also keep looking at the slubbed boatneck top but I think it's mainly because the model's brows are amazing.  Here is a ridiculous close-up:

Texture-y! I'm wearing a BR necklace I bought last year that has been such a nice staple. Something like this House of Harlow pendant would give you a similar look or, hey, this Forever21 pendant is pretty damn cute.

The usual suspects. Giles and Brother cuffs and my MBMJ Too Hot To Handle Hobo in cement which  I carry too much. It's just so easy and I love the neutral color. This grey Liebeskind hobo at Anthro is definitely a good comparable and, for the price, this studded-trim bucket hobo at Last Call is pretty interesting. Oh, I feel I should also mention that the bucket version of my bag is on sale in cement! 

It's hard to tell, but I'm also wearing my Madewell sidewalk skimmers in leopard print. They starting to get a bit ratty, but I still love them. Madewell hasn't restocked skimmers in a while but J.Crew has a pointy leopard flat that looks very nice and this Bettye Muller pair at Last Call is under $100! For a cheap-n-cheerful option I like the look of this Express pair.

I've been wearing the hell out of my new (to me) Madewell Beckett jacket. There are a ton of similar olive jackets out there but I think this ModCloth version is ridiculously cute and a total bargain. I also love the clean lines of this Coupe Olive Jacket and this one by Vince Camuto also looks great. You can't really lose. It's the perfect in-between weather layer and I'm grateful that Marianne encouraged me to find one. (She wears hers quite often in her IG outfits.)

That's all I got! I am hoping to pull out my spring/summer clothes this weekend mostly because I'm real sick of my winter stuff. Burn it all! (Except the jacket!)


  1. I found a beautiful, dark green MBMJ bag at Nordstrom Rack yesterday for such a great price. Hope this doesn't sound weird, but I am a big fan of your blog and know you also love MBMJ -- I felt like you would understand how excited I was when I found it!

  2. Love the burgundy and khaki color combo
