This coat. Baby alpaca. For Christmas, please. Seriously, though, this coat fulfills so much of what I’m about these days: high quality and from a small brand. Made in a warm fabric in a gorgeous shade of beige. A forever piece that I hope becomes mine this holiday season.

breathing again

Well hello out there! I hope you guys are enjoying this holiday season. I’m finally getting back into the swing of things after my last post where I talked about the chaos of moving and feeling generally unsettled. As many people reminded me, it takes time and I’m happy to say that things have slowed down a bit and I feel like I can breathe again. And focus on the things I love like making clothes and blogging. To be honest this outfit has been in the queue for a bit, but better late than never. I’ve realized that as much as I love wearing black, I’ve been loving outfits in tones of nude. It’s a bit softer than black, yet still simple.

top – vintage (and altered by me)

pants – c/o elizabeth suzann

shoes – c/o everlane 

necklace – two hands full  (similar)

on being unsettled

It’s been a chaotic seven days. Not only for us Americans who watched last Wednesday’s election results unfold with horror in our hearts, but for my little family who moved in to our first home over the weekend! All of it has left me pretty unsettled. It doesn’t help that half of my belongings are in boxes and that half of the nation is waiting on bated breath to see how the next presidency goes. I decided yesterday to try to have a little faith that everything will work out and I’ll feel settled sooner than I think. For now, I’m looking for little things that make me feel safe and warm during this transition. See some of those things pictured below.

radio silence

Sorry for my radio silence over here! At the same time that I was launching Eli & Barry clothing last month, James and I were in the process of purchasing the house of our dreams! Well, the house is ours now, but there’s been a bit of a renovation happening over there which has kept me super busy. We also have been packing up to move this coming Saturday (wut???) so I’ve been trying to downsize where I can to get through the chaos. The blog has been suffering a bit. I can’t wait to fill you guys on in the house and what updates we made to it and how Eli & Barry clothing is going, but for now I wanted to share an outfit that I’ve had in the queue for a few weeks. I wore this to my dear friend Courtney’s engagement party a few weeks back. Details below!

the ease…

Ahhh the ease of a simple t-shirt. The ease of a simple t-shirt made of silk. The ease of a simple t-shirt made of silk that I designed and made for my recent clothing launch at Eli & Barry. So, actually, none of that is easy, but the fit if this tee is easy and it’s quickly become a staple in my own closet. I designed it to pair with high-waisted trousers, which is pretty much all I’m wearing these days. The raw silk gives it a casual feel while still having lovely drape. Clearly I’m a fan…as I should be.
