Style Files: What I’m Wearing Lately

This is the most random of roundups of my #OOTD selfies: a few are from this week, and several are from last month that I forgot to upload. You can spot the oldies by the empty concrete planter; I finally got a pretty fig for her!

The common theme of my weekday uniform right now is easy blouse + jeans (mostly these from Everlane) + cute sandals. I mentioned in a recent post that Zara is killing it with shoes this season, and a few of the styles I’m wearing in this post are from their spring/summer collection. I’m really into strappy 90s styles right now — gimme all the square toes and chunky heels — and pairing a basic outfit with a colorful/unique sandal is my current favorite lazy style hack.

I’m also wearing my velvet Loeffler Randall ‘Celeste’ mules at least twice (okay, three times) a week. They’re still on sale at Farfetch, and although sizes are limited in the orange I’m wearing, there are lots of sizes available in blue. These mules were one of my biggest shoe splurges, but this rate, my cost-per-wear is going to be pretty impressive by the end of the summer.

I mentioned in my last Style Files post that I bought a lot of outerwear last spring that I never got around to wearing. This white jacket is one of those pieces. I kept it clean this entire day, which is a big accomplishment for this clumsy lady.

I was really feeling my color palette on this day (which you may have seen in my Instagram stories.) The knit tank was a steal at TJ Maxx.

Dear Keira, stop trying to make sweaters happen in this heat. We all know you love to be cozy, but it’s getting ridiculous; we’re all sweating just looking at you. (In my defense, it feels like a refrigerator in my office.) This pink sweater is from m.marie and it buttons down the back.

I bought this Nine West blouse years ago on clearance, and it’s still one of my favorite things in my closet. I packed it up at the end of last summer, and loved bringing it out in my spring closet turnover. My big leather tote is by Cuyana, and as you can see, it’s bulging with stuff I think I need to schlep to work every day. Should I do a ‘What’s In My Bag’ post?

    Always love your outfit posts because you look so pulled together and fashionable without being over the top. So many of the fashion blogs I used to follow have gone into costume territory. Also would love to see the what’s in my bag post!

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
