I’ve been anticipating this launch ever since I saw Elizabeth Suzann post on Instagram about the bag below.  I can’t get over the design.  It’s simple and impactful.  It comes in two sizes and the colors are just perfection.  Elizabeth’s brand is one that I truly admire and I love supporting a small designer.  Now…which color to choose? :)

shopping in your own closet

I recently undertook the daunting task of organizing our closet in our new apartment.  We’re lucky enough to have a pretty sizable walk-in closet that we share, which we have never really had before.  When we moved in, we went as far as to hang our clothes and stack folded sweaters, but that was pretty much it.  Since then, I’ve organized everything by style and color and added few organizational pieces that have been amazingly useful.  I created shoe racks by using tension rods and added some crates to the top shelf that I turned on their sides for added organization.  I can now see everything in the closet and pull all sorts of things out that I sort of forgot I had.  One of those items is this green hobo bag, which I got on a trip to Italy.  My mom calls finding forgotten clothing items “shopping in your own closet.”  Mom, you’re a genius.  But you already knew that.  Just stop trying to “shop in my closet.”

zara s/s 2015 collection

As you might remember, I was Zara crazed for quite a while.  I’ve taken a bit of a step back from “fast fashion” brands as best as I can to try to invest in higher quality clothing.  But the other day I went to the Zara website and fell in love with their spring/summer 2015 collection.  I love the the mix of soft colors and the different proportions achieved from layering.  So lovely.

an outfit and a story

If there were a theme to this outfit, it would undeniably be this: Madewell.  It’s still one of my favorite brands: I love the clothing and I love the branding/styling even more.  They had an awesome winter sale after Christmas and I snagged the shirt I’m wearing in this outfit (as well as the shirt from this outfit).  At first, I wasn’t so jazzed about the color of the blouse in person, but now I really love it.  It’s super comfortable and a great wardrobe staple.  Now, the story portion of the post you’ll find after the first three photos…

The photo above had to be included and probably deserves an explanation.  I looked down the alley and saw a woman with her dog talking to a man in a big truck.  The passenger window was open and the dog, all of a sudden, attempted to leap from the ground into the passenger window and he didn’t make it.  He pathetically slapped against the side of the car and slid down to the pavement.  Luckily, he was fine, but it was quite the scene.

everlane winter lookbook

I love the gorgeous neutral palette of the Everlane winter lookbook.   Proof that you can and should wear white in winter along with many other traditionally warm weather neutrals.  Shop the color story on Everlane’s website here.
