outfit: top layers

outfit: Mijeong Park neck warmer | Elizabeth Suzann boat neck top | Madewell jeans

Hey guys! It feels like forever since I last posted, but I think that’s only because so much has happened in the past few weeks. Like everyone else, I was disgusted by what happened at the Capitol on Jan 6th, but not entirely surprised by it. It was Trump’s destructive narcissism on full display. We are living in dark times for sure.

outfit: stripes of a different color (+ a recipe)

>>> outfit: vince stripe cotton top (on loan) | vince jeans | madewell reid flats

How many striped shirts do you have? I own 5.  It’s probably too much but I convince myself each one is special in it’s own way.

outfit: 3D

Ministry of Supply 3D printed sweater (size large) | pre-owned Madewell straight chinos | DV espadrille sandals

Update: I’m going to return the shoes in the previous post. They are beautiful and look cool, but they were difficult to slip on without unbuckling and buckling, and the soles were a bit heavy. I try to avoid returning things and never buy things with the intention of returning, but sometimes you have to. Oh well. The search goes on.

secondhand James Perse tee | Muji wool skirt | hooded cardigan gifted by Mijeong Park | Famolare honeybuckle wedges

Did you vote today?  I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the House Dems.  To honor the occasion, I thought I’d wear a monochrome gray outfit to let my ‘I Voted’ sticker shine.
