Adrien: Kind of Lazy.

This is the kind of lazy stuff I wear to work on a Monday and don't usually bother to photograph. In fact, I wasn't sure this outfit was doing much for me but I like the end result. It started here:

Pretty neutral, yeah. I am wearing my slightly-too-big Everlane Round Collar Blouse which is super comfortable and pleasingly slouchy. I'm glad I kept it! The size selection isn't great but I think the Relaxed Silk Shirt would give you the same look. 

My jeans are Madewell High-Rise Skinny in black coated (more sizes at Nordstrom) which I bought last winter and didn't wear very much. This fall? I can't seem to stop wearing them. I love the leather-like sheen and the fit is perfect. For other options, 7 For All Mankind makes a similar coated jean in a skinny ankle cut and H&M has a really inexpensive pair and so does Joe Fresh.  Shiny jean for everyone! 

I added my old Martin + Osa teal cashmere cardigan for a bit of color and warmth and I'm sad because it's starting to fall apart. I do like this blue option at BR and LL Bean has a nice looking cashmere cardigan in teal. There's always Old Navy for a cheap-n-cheerful option and J.Crew for good colors. PS. I think it's funny that BR now categorizes cardigans under, "Cardigans & More." That would be the name of my shop, if I had one. 

Wait, no, it would be "Gin Carnigans & More." Because, duh. Details: 

Same old stuff. My House of Harlow mini sunburst pendant (the silver/blue version is on sale at Off 5th) and my CLUSE La Boheme watch. My ring is hard to see but it's an Alexis Bittar cocktail ring from last year's Box of Style. 

I know I carry this MBMJ bag a lot but it's just so easy. A black hobo bag just seems like a staple. I really love the shape of this sleek Vince Camuto hobo and this French Connection bag is a great inexpensive option. And oh, hey! I'm wearing my new grey booties! They're Lucky Brand Basel and they're super comfortable. They also come in a plain leather version if perforation isn't your thing. I should also mention that Marianne's pick, the Lucky Brand Bashina, is back in stock and on sale, of course. 


  1. I looove those boots - but I haven't seen them in person, so I must ask - are they truly gray? Or are they more taupe? I want gray boots this fall, and these are billed as "stone" at Nordstrom.com. And look sort of taupe on the computer. Sigh.

    1. They're truly gray, not taupe. I promise!

    2. Add to that - the "Bashina" is taupe. The Basel is gray.

  2. Yay and thanks! I own the Basel in snake and they are SO GOOD.
