BB Dakota Renley Lace Fit and Flare at Nordstrom
This one is going like hot cakes right now which means approximately a trillion white girls will be wearing this at any given moment. I liked it because the girls at the store helping me pointed out that you could wear a white oxford underneath it for work, a chambray under or over, a black cardigan, with tights, without tights- lot of versatility.
So of course I had to get the diamon ikat short:
You can see I was in a very colorful mood. Which is sort of bizarre for me actually because up until about two years ago I think I owned two pieces of black clothing…I did grab this necklace on the way out to make up for it:
Sorry for the awkward close-up- I think it’s sold out online.
At the Gap, I was only slightly more colorful- grabbing this sleeveless shirt dress for a lazy wear-to-work ensemble. It was super comfy!
I’ve also grown to love Gap for inexpensive basics— nothing beats the price — and quality in comparison to price— of their t-shirts and even some of their button-downs and shorts. I swear I grabbed three really colorful t-shirts. I’ve also had some luck with some of their basic jeans or “fun” pants, but sometimes the fit is weird.
And when I spend lots of hard-earned money, I never neglect the husband. Unfortunately, the J.Crew I was shopping at in Walnut Creek did not have a men’s section!?!?! Which was the first time I’ve ever encountered that. So I headed to Nordstrom for one of my fave men’s brands: 1901 which is actually a Nordstrom house brand.
I love it because it looks great on slim guys - the hubs usually has to buy slimfit shirts and these look great on him as-is. Other pricier fave slimfit brands: Hugo Boss, Thomas Pink, Ted Baker and Jack Spade.
Um this hot number was 50% off and only $30-ish!?!?!
So I grabbed another:
Ready for spring. And to stop shopping….never!!! I only have my eye on about a zillion other things- of which many have color in them, I swear.
enchantedengland: This is New Row, an enchanted place off St Martin’s Lane in London. You can get to New Row via King Street from the Covent Garden piazza, after crossing Garrick. New Row ends at St Martin’s as you see here; and the architecture of the old theaters in this area is fantastically fabulous.
