what I’m wearing…
sunglasses: Karen Walker // lipstick: Nars in Lana // denim jacket: mine is sold out, but I love this super similar one from J.Crew & Madewell // leopard clutch: Clare V., also available at Shopbop & Nordstrom // striped shirt: Saint James // black jeans: Mott & Bow c/o // red heels: love this similar budget friendly pair //
Last spring I scored this denim jacket from Who What Wear, and have loved wearing it in all seasons ever since. As a jacket last May, see that outfit here, and over a jumpsuit with heels, see that outfit here, it’s been great worn both open and buttoned up. Mine is sold out, but I love the version J.Crew designed this season, as well as the Madewell version they just brought back for the third time.
I fee like it’s probably well over due, that I bring your attention to how I carry this supposed-to-be “fold over” leopard clutch. Clare V.’s signature fold over clutch has become iconic, and I especially love it for the room it provides, and of course the effortless style. Intended to be carried folded in half, I like mine better worn popped open. See how I carried it with a velvet pleated skirt, and with my favorite navy slides here.
Ever since I had Baby Bea, I have been especially loving the slimming effect, and comfort level, of high-waisted skinny jeans. They make my legs look longer and leaner, and the high-waist makes me feel like I’m accentuating my curves in a good way. This pair from Mott & Bow has been a go-to ever since they sent them to me. I also love wearing them with flats, see an example of that outfit here. FYI I sized up one size in them.
