Thursday trifecta

Madewell top—Thursday trifecta

Here are a few new arrivals from Madewell, all for under $100, and starting with this Mexican embroidered blouse, which I think is stinking cute.

Midi column dress—Thursday trifecta

This midi column dress is nice and slouchy but not too boxy (click through to see how it fits the model) and would be perfect for weekends.

Canvas tote—Thursday trifecta

I always like canvas and leather combined, so this tote is right up my alley.

Slightly left-of-center denim jackets


Madewell denim jacket—slightly left-of-center denim jackets

Today, I bring you denim jackets with a little something different going on, like this collarless number from Madewell, which I didn’t like at first, and then decided I really liked.

Etoile Isabel Marant denim jacket—Slightly left-of-center denim jackets

I know, this one from Etoile Isabel Marant is pricey, but the beading at the collar is just too good.

Topshop denim jacket—Slightly left-of-center denim jackets

White denim is always cool, and the sherpa lining is just a plus.

AMO denim jacket—slightly left-of-center denim jackets

Another nice collarless option, this one a little more pared-down.

Frame Denim jacket—Slightly left-of-center denim jackets

And why not a red denim jacket, I ask you?

Carhartt denim jacket—slightly left-of-center denim jackets

Finally, I couldn’t resist throwing in this Carhartt jacket, because I love Carhartt anything.

I do like a grey bag

It’s just such a rich neutral, and elevates whatever you wear it with. I’ve only got one grey bag—the Clare V Gosee clutch I’ve posted below—and when it’s in rotation I wear it to death. So much so that it’s looking pretty worn-out, so I’ve been looking for a suitable replacement. Which may just be another Clare V Gosee clutch—or may be one of the others below.

Building block tote—top 5 of the week

I never get too excited about totes, but this is such an excellent pale, pale grey.

Clare V gosee clutch—Top 5 of the week

Here is the aforementioned Gosee clutch—I especially like grey suede, and this bag has a nice hit of it.

Zara bucket bag

A nice, slouchy hobo at a super-good price.

Haerfest bag—top 5 of the week

I adore a duffel, and the shape of this one is just so good.

Clare V Grand Henri bag—top 5 of the week

I seriously want this bag and have for a while: it’s big enough to fit a laptop, but is anything but workaday.

Mango tote—top 5 of the week

I like the contrast of the black handle here.

Elizabeth and James bag—top 5 of the week

This can be a backpack or a handbag, which is nifty.
