Adrien: Me In A Nutshell.

Hi! I like this one! I dressed myself in a manner that felt very "me" and also kind of basic, but I'm okay with that. I'm just trying always to come back to my usual favorite ascetic of, "simple things with interesting details." This ponte top I'm wearing definitely qualifies:

It's from Ann Taylor and I've had it for years. A very simple, structured shape with the added cool detail of zippers on either side of the bottom hem which of course I totally forgot to photograph. The Crazy Sleeve Plague of '17 is making it hard to find something similar, but I think this Ann Taylor top is pretty and you can always count on Everlane for a top with simple lines and this one even has a zipper detail. For something similar without crazy sleeves or a zipper, this one at NR fits the bill.

My jeans are of course my new Madewell high-rise slim boyjean and I like them so much I'm already scheming on my next pair of boyfriend jeans. This pair with a midrise might be mine when they go on sale and I love Fidelity jeans, so I'm keeping my eye on their girlfriend style jeans. Also, this pair of destroyed Old Navy jeans gets great reviews, so maybe?  Details:

I'm wearing a Madewell necklace that Marianne gave me a couple of years ago. They do the best simple jewelry!  This pendant set is pretty similar and this curvelink pendant is cool too. I'm also really into all the stars this fall - this necklace and these earrings in particular. 

I'm wearing my olive Madewell et Sezane jacket which is long sold out, though there's an XS on Poshmark right now that someone should rescue. The Fleet Jacket is very similar but there are also good options at JCrew Factory, Lou & Grey and Nordstrom Rack. (I love that last one a lot. More sizes here.) My print scarf is Barbour and I love it.

I'm carrying my vintage red LV speedy which is such a cheerful bag! Talbots has a great red doctor bag that's on sale and this red Italian leather satchel at TJ Maxx is ridiculously nice looking. Get a red bag. It's always a winner. My shoes are UGG "Blyss" leopard loafers which I bought to replace my old leopard flats. They're suuuuper cozy. These Ugg leopard flats are pretty similar and cute but you could also go with something like these Sam Edelman. Love.


  1. Love your outfit! Agree to the crazy sleeve issue of this drives me mad to think about purchasing a blouse and trying to figure out if i can remove the ruffle/drapey sleeve thing, or if it's a pro job. Maybe 2018 will be back to normal sleeve.

  2. That neckline is super flattering! Great outfit.
