Today I wore this grey + mustard combination. The bright cardigan really perks this outfit up, which is actually very nice for a Monday. I also like that this white top has a lacy overlay--it dresses up the corduroy pants a bit.
What do you guys think about this pant silhouette (boot cut cords vs. skinny pants)? I'm so curious to find the best pants shape.

Happy Tuesday! I am always so happy to make it through Tuesday of a normal week. It is all downhill from here, right? Sort of.
I threw on this scarf as an afterthought while running out the door, but I ended up really liking it. I aspire to be able to effortlessly wear scarves. I love adding color and pattern but usually I'm not sure what to do with them. Scarf + stripes inspiration here.
Regular scarf inspiration here, here, and here.

We went to the Santa Barbara Zoo and Crushcakes today, and here is what I wore. I've been wearing these shorts a ton since I got them in the summer because they are loose and super comfortable.

denim shorts: Lucky Brand
bracelet: Mercedes Salazar

I haven't been wearing these orange pants all that often, mostly because what do you wear with bright orange? Certainly not black (although maybe on Halloween I will). I paired them with this blue tuxedo style blouse did a half-tuck. Too sloppy? I'm okay with it. Also: I liked clicking around in these heels all day.
blouse: Lands' End Canvas (a couple years ago)
pants: Lands' End Canvas (last year)
belt: Gap (I think), old

It has been so long since I've blogged that I feel a little rusty! We had a 3 day weekend and just got back from Knott's Berry Farm late(ish) last night. I threw this outfit together quickly this morning (I actually wore it last week too, so I knew I liked it).
These linen Talbot's pants have turned out to be real workhorses this fall season. I'm wearing them much more now than I did in seasons past. They just seem sort of dressy and work-y to me. The top is one I purchased at Anthro over the summer, and I just broke it out last week. I was waiting for fall weather to arrive. I'm so happy with it, and plan to repeat this outfit quite a bit while the fall is still so warm. And the clogs? Those I bought for Faith over the summer (long story--originally I'd purchased some Swedish Hasbeens for her, which she loved, but the leather strap on those broke in the first week and we had to return them. I got her these instead, but she didn't like them). Aren't they cute? I think they make the outfit.
I'm still doing a modified "capsule" wardrobe and I love it. I love having fewer choices and it is interesting to see what I choose to have out and what I have no desire to wear (and stays packed up in trash bags in my studio). I'll write more about this eventually. I've had a lot of fun pondering my wardrobe, truth be told.
