In this outfit post, I’m wearing my very first Eileen Fisher top (bought secondhand for $13, similar). It’s the only 100% linen item in my wardrobe and ever since I put it on this morning, I haven’t wanted to take it off even to change into my pajamas. I like the way it feels, softly textured, light, airy, but not exposed. I like the wrinkles; they add a little footprint showing how your day was spent. I like it’s slight sheerness to layer over dark bras for a tiny bit of attitude peaking through. The ES clydes have been on high rotation as usual. Somehow the way these pants balloon out at the hips and thighs help balance out my top heaviness. I’m slowly prepping for Spring weather, eagerly awaiting the the ES cotton canvas Tilda pants which are being made right now and probably won’t arrive until the end of April or May, just in time for bare-ankle-weather. Can’t wait.
In other news, my feelings about leather are starting to change. I happened to catch a PBS Newshour segment today, showing horrific scenes in Bangladeshi leather tanneries (Check it out here, skip fwd to 23:15). It’s shocking! I’m considering no new leather from now on.
