Adrien: Vacation Mode.

I'm off work this week which mostly means nothing except I might sleep in instead of posting. It happens. Luckily I remembered to take pics from the outfit I wore last Saturday when Kate and I went to see the YSL show at the Virginia Museum. (If you live nearby you really should make an effort to see this show! So incredible.) ANYWAY, I wore this:


Not fashiony at all but nice than cut-off shorts, right? This dress is my version of Jeanz 4 Teenz!  I bought it in the teen section of Marshalls because of course I did. The brand is Thyme & Honey which is basically only a thing in discount land so I scampered over to TJM and immediately found the sister wife version of my dress. Huh. Well. 


Wait, come back here! I can do better. What about this cute space dye dress at Zappos? Or this Aster dress at Eddie Bauer which looks crazy flattering. Or, if you desire a little sleeve (though I agree with Marianne that we should just stop feeling bad about our arms!) I really love the simplicity of this cute t-shirt dress at JC Penney. And, if you are not a fan of space-dye but still want cute weekend dresses, check out Joe Fresh for under-$30 options. This lace print is cool, I adore this sweet floral and y'all know I love a stripe. Play clothes for everyone! 


Real talk for a second. Even though I'm always telling you to wear a slip under dresses, this one is really too short for that. I generally wear Hanky Panky thongs but without a slip it can lead to the dreaded thong-suck. You know what I'm talking about, we've all seen it. So, my solution is the Vanishing Edge underwear by Soma. They have some cute options but mine are mostly this un-sexy style in a neutral color. You have to kind of place the edges but once you do they do not budge and do not show. (Note: these are not the undies to wear when you'll be sitting all day because those little silicone lines will eventually hurt you.) Details: 


I'm wearing my favorite Giles & Brother fish hook pendant which is long sold out but this beautiful little version by Miansai is on sale! I also dig this G&B Cortina necklace at TheRealReal. My bracelet is Lisa Freede and is really similar to this Vita Fede version but man, that is expensive. I'd go for one of these Lucky Brand bracelets instead.


Shoes and bag! OH MY GOD THESE BIRKENSTOCKS. They are the Gizeh in copper and by the time I'd saved up for them they were all sold out. You can still find the copper in the Arizona and Madrid style but sizing is really limited. I ended up buying my pair (new in box) on eBay which thankfully worked out great. You can also still find them a few places in silver, which I dig. Anyway, they are a revelation. The soft bed leather Gizeh is REALLY nice and I have basically worn them daily since they arrived. I love them.

My bag is an old MBMJ and it's still the bag that gets the most compliments. There's still this bright blue MJ hobo at Nordstrom Rack! Just saying. You could also be fiscally responsible and buy this Liz Claiborne version instead.

That's it for today! Have a good Monday everyone.

  1. Jeans 4 Teens yesssssss Orlando! I always knew I liked you, but now that I know we wear the same underwear (Hanky Panky and Soma's Vanishing Edge FTW) AND love the same InstaStories? I need to come down to RVA and hang!

  2. I'm going to go on record with a counter opinion re: Soma vanishing edge and sitting all day. I have sat all day in these undies for YEARS (I will not thong) with nary an issue. Maybe I have a tough butt? idk

    1. You'd think I'd have a tough butt with all the cycling, but I guess I'm a sensitive flower! I still wear them, but ouch.

  3. That Aster dress from Eddie Bauer might just be the dress I've been searching for. Thanks for linking to it. I always forget about that store.
