Suddenly it’s all about grey jeans

Madewell jeans—suddenly it's all about grey jeans

This winter for some reason, all I’m interested in wearing are my grey jeans. I think they’re just a bit more sophisticated than blue, less expected than black, and easier to dress up when you’re in the mood to. I love the way this woman looks with jeans and a blazer in pretty much the same shade.

This skinny pair from Madewell seems pretty leg-elongating.

Frame jeans—suddenly it's all about grey jeans

I like these because the grey is nice and dark, which is more flattering.

R13 jeans—suddenly it's all about grey jeans

I’m delighted by the extra-fringed hem here.

Mango jeans—suddenly it's all about grey jeans

Here’s a very well priced pair.

A nice boot-cut, slightly cropped option.

Tuesday trifecta

Clare v. backpack—tuesday trifecta Clare V bags

A few new arrivals I’m liking over at Clare V, starting with this nifty canvas backpack. The lips patch is a bit twee, but I find I do not care.

Clare v clutch—tuesday trifecta Clare V bags

I’m digging the op-art vibe of this clutch, as I do love a loud clutch.

A nice crossbody shape, and a good blue.

One step to pretty

In real life, this stuff looks fluorescent pink in the bottle, but the minute you apply it to your cheeks, it goes on nice and sheer and you get just the prettiest, subtlest glow. Such a good dead-of-winter pick-me-up.

Top 5 of the week

Today, for Top 5 of the week, I’m featuring items from Neiman Marcus, because I hardly ever show stuff from them, and they dropped Ivanka’s line* so I’m thinking they deserve a little love. First up: I like this quilted liner jacket to wear under an overcoat, or on its own, when it gets warmer.

This gauze tuxedo blouse is right up my alley.

I find this sneaker bootie rather cute, and bet it’s comfortable and cozy as all get-out.

I adore the grey hue of this jacket from Iro.

And I’m intrigued by these cropped chinos from Frame.

 

*So did Nordstrom, of course, but I show them all of the time.
