Outfit of the Day: Two Purchases.

Just a note: My little attic loft space where I work and take photos gets super hot when we're having a heatwave and we're having a heatwave! I took these photos rull quick, all sweaty and disheveled, so they aren't the best. The things I do for you.

Hi! As I mentioned in the last entry, I recently bought a couple of things and they arrived on the same day, so threw them on for a quick fake outfit/review post:


My Madewell jeans arrived! These are the Cali Demi-Boot Jeans in Dorrance Wash and I got them during the $50 jeans sale. I sized down one in these and that was the right way to go - they are super stretchy. I am a big fan of the Cali Demi-Boot style and these are so good! Very cute with sneakers and sandals and of course i'm wearing them with my white Birkenstock Arizonas.


I like that they aren't distressed and aren't super cropped and the lighter wash will take me through the end of summer. They are also very high rise which is my preference when paired with slightly cropped tops - it definitely lengthens the leg. I haven't actually been able to wear these out of the house yet but next week the temps are coming down and I'll be back in jeans. 


I'm wearing my new jeans with an Alex Mill striped tee which is a favorite of mine! Not inexpensive but it still looks as good as when I bought it two years ago. They currently have this cute striped tee that I covet and their long sleeve version looks kind of amazing. For something similar to my red striped tee, COS has one that looks great.


This is the other thing that just arrived - the leopard print Clare V Midi Sac. It's cute but I think I like my snakeskin bag better. This one is made of a soft suede material and the print is so small that I don't think it has the same impact. I do love the strap?  I think I'm going to return this but I'm glad I ordered it because sometimes you just have to see something in person so you know for sure.


Here's a better look at the bag which I'm liking more as I look at these photos, but again, I think it's the strap I dig, not the actual bag: 


I just want that print to be punchier! I don't know, I just feel like there are better leopard bags out there. This little Madewell crossbody gets the print exactly right and this bag is a bit bigger and I love balance of leopard to leather. I also love this little bag which is under $34! 

Anyway, that's it! One keeper, one return. You win some, you lose some. (Now, who wants to help me find a wedding dress? 😀)

  4. congratulations ! sometimes when I like an item I literally just ask myself if I only like it because it's similar to something I already own and like. so I don't end up buying a duplicate of something I already own. maybe you got into the same situation with this bag !
