Today I look like I was plucked straight from the countryside of Vietnam. All I need is one of those rice paddy hats. My half-Vietnamese mother would be proud. I dress like this to work and in honor of hard work. Continue reading “outfit: countryside”
I’ve been heeding the advice of Dearly Bethany today and wore these ES pants cuffed above my ankles and my shirt tucked in to make myself look taller. I love the way it evens out my weird proportions and might not ever wear a shirt again untucked. I hope that won’t go out of fashion! Continue reading “outfit: faded ochre is a neutral”
I’m back! Was off the grid for a while up in the Montana cabin. Continue reading “Apartment turnover + Clyde everything”

On repeat, here again, I’m wearing the same wool-cashmere turtleneck over Clyde pants. I wore this outfit to pick up some tacos for lunch. There was no need to carry a bag; my wallet, phone, and keys fit easily in these big pockets. It was a nice walk today; the streets were bustling with lots of smiling faces; the Cuban guys were out singing & playing bongo drums at the street corner again–always a welcomed sign winter is over, like the town troubadour in Gilmore girls, except with open bottles of tequila and more rhythm.

One of my goals for 2017 is to revamp my wardrobe so that I no longer feel frustrated when getting dressed in the morning. Continue reading “wardrobe planning for 2017”
Fall is upon us people! Every fall, I desperately look for ways to keep wearing sandals long after every sane person in New York has transitioned to boots. Last year I got some judgmental looks and overheard New Yorkers outright teasing me for wearing wool socks with Birkenstocks in public (sometimes I just don’t care how I look ok).
This year, I decided to fem it up a little bit with cutesy socks (maybe that will be more socially acceptable?). I think girly seasonal socks look great peeking out of ankle booties or with 70’s style wedge sandals, with an otherwise simple outfit.

Thought I should post another outfit with the Elizabeth Suzann work pants that I got for my birthday. These pants have really turned out to be a good investment. The pockets are huge without giving you a (tacky) cargo pants type of look. And they seem to go well with everything in my wardrobe. My only complaint is that pet hair tends to stick to the fabric but that’s not a big deal for me. The top is from TradeMark, a minimalist label with excellent craftsmanship. I was drawn to the socialist vibe of this shirt and its understated pale yellow color, to add just a little warmth to my otherwise grayscale wardrobe. Continue reading “outfit: work pants”
The blogger at StyleBee introduced me to these amazing Elizabeth Suzann “work pants” that I asked for on my birthday. These pants are really great! I’m so glad they fit well because the process was truly slow. Each pair of pants are made to order by hand in the USA. Mine took 8 weeks for them to sew up and ship. It came with a handwritten letter and wrapped in the most beautiful marble wrapping paper I’ve ever seen. All seams on these pants are sewn with intent to last a lifetime and the fabrics are selected to get better with age. I love that it is high waisted enough to wear with crop tops but fitted enough to drape longer shirts over the belly area. Continue reading “outfit: slow pants”
