Patagonia Better Sweater suddenly seems to be everywhere.
It’s not new but seems to be having a renaissance.
Made of recycled materials, the Better Sweater comes as a jacket (like mine, above, in Birch), 1/4 zip pullover, vest, hoodie, shirt jacket, hat or scarf.
I can attest to the wearability and softness. The outer surface says “sweater” but the inside says “fleece.”
I had this on my Christmas list until I discovered an amazing Black Friday deal – roughly 1/2 price – and scooped it up early.
Love ’em or hate ’em?
These shoes kept coming across my Instagram feed, and I finally succumbed.
iRi NYC, a brand designed “to promote individual expression through footwear.”
I bought the exact pair above. They remind me of the Keith Haring Absolut Vodka ads from my youth. I was obsessed with those ads.’
The upper is neoprene and the chunky sole adds about 2″ of height.
I’m happy to report the comfort level is high and every time I wear them, people comment on how unique they are.
Mark my ballot as “Love.”
File under least necessary, most wanted.
As soon as I saw these babies, I knew I had to make them mine.
I finally bit on Rothy’s.
If you’re not familiar, they are a sustainable shoe brand whose products are made from materials like recycled plastic bottles.
One selling point is that they are machine washable.
While Rothy’s have achieved cult status with some of my friends, I wasn’t tempted enough to dive in until I saw these
limited edition pink gingham loafers.
They also come in red or brown check, but pink gets my heart every time.
While these babies are going to be shelved until snow season is over (i.e., mid-2020 at the earliest), I’m patient.
The photo does not do it justice: This
fuzzy winter white cardigan is perfect for the season.
It can elevate a weekend look and also can take you to work.
Here it is up close and personal.
Hope your weekend is going well!
Greetings from my 10 year old daughter’s closet.
The one with the giant mirror.
Here’s what I wore today in clinic, minus personalized white coat on top of it all:
Ok, let’s get this out of the way: the sequin rose gold Minnie Mouse backpack is not mine. #tweendaughter
Let’s start with
these J. Crew pearl hoop earrings that are currently on sale:
these Jeffrey Campbell booties are amazingly comfortable, bridge the gap from work to weekend, and they are subtly brown, versus a black-and-white snake print. The pair well with so many colors, including blush pink.
And can we talk about the pants?
Spanx Perfect Black Pants are not hyperbolically named.
I’d suggest sizing down. I am wearing a medium in the above picture (for reference, I am 5’9″ and weigh 155#).
And lastly, a confession.
I checked the label and it is from the Banana Republic Holiday 2012 collection.
But I still like it.
Have a great weekend!
Friends, I can’t stop wearing this fall uniform.
When a look works, I tend to fall back on it.
This ensemble has made five appearances already this fall. It may reach the point of needing to go out of rotation due to over-exposure, but I’m not there yet.
From top to bottom:
J. Crew pearl hoop earrings
J. Crew slim turtleneck
Veronica Beard dress (similar)
Layered pearl bracelets (Arm party!)
Chanel boots – Check out the detail on the heels:
Can also be paired with a fitted leather jacket:
