It’s the little things

& Other Stories Army Jacket—It's the little things

A very nearly perfect army jacket that doesn’t cost a ton.

Obsessing over quilts, again


I’ve been wanting a quilt in the worst way for the longest time now, and I’m not entirely sure what it’s about: they’re cozy and home-y, but traditional in a way that I’m not. So it’s unsurprising that the ones I’m drawn to are on the modern side mostly, and it turns out that Etsy is crawling with shops selling really cool contemporary specimens. I like this red-on-white number because it’s actually not too too far from traditional, but would not be out of place in my home, which is anything but.

I just really like the color palette here.

This would look so cool in my bedroom, which is all shades of black, white, and grey, that I might just have to pull the trigger. I love the subtle shards of color throughout.

And this is actually a baby quilt, and a rather pricey one at that, but boy is it gorgeous.

Another one I could easily imagine living with.





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.
