This photo is from Friday. I had a half day of work (at home) and then my mom arrived for a visit, so I was busy entertaining most the weekend. After she left I was a couch potato because I think I’m fighting some sort of stomach bug.
Top: Uniqlo (striped one no longer available online). Jeans: Grana – old. Shoes: Frye. Necklace: gift from husband – old.
Luckily today went by fast in the office. I’m hoping the rest of this week will go by this quickly. I’m always impatient for the next episode of Shingeki no Bahamut.
Shirt: Everlane – old. Jeans: Grana – old, same as Friday. Shoes: Frye. Necklace: UGUiSU. The Everlane shirt is silk and was from the rounded collar ones they made a couple years ago. It’s the only silk shirt I have. I know it’s a light colored button down, but it’s more ivory than white. I was actually expecting it to be white when I got it. I know a lot of people rave about Everlane’s silk shirts, but this did not impress me at all. I rarely wear it actually. The silk feels very flimsy and it actually got some runs in it near the armpits the first time I wore it. I’ve read that their silk shirts are much better now, but I’m not a huge fan of having to iron my clothes. I know technically I should dry clean silk, but I have so few items that actually really need dry cleaning I just put delicate shirts like this in a laundry bag in the wash – gentle cycle. I air dry and then use an iron on low and it looks just fine. Everlane and Grana seem to be competing for who has the best silk shirts in the same price range. I’m not a huge fan of silk, but I wouldn’t be against trying some newer ones they have out to see if the silk is any better and actually worth making me want deal with the upkeep.
I was feeling quite lazy and just threw on the jeans I wore Friday and most of the weekend. That’s what I love about jeans. It also makes for lazy and boring wardrobe photos.
The necklace I linked to is in silver. The chain on mine is gold, but she’s not sold the gold one in a couple years. I really love it and wear it almost every day.
