My mom and I met at the mall last week for some girl time and Christmas shopping. Juniper lattes in hand (they are good!) we ended up in the men’s department at Macy’s so I could help her find something for Josh. I don’t know if you guys are familiar with the men’s department in Macy’s, but it’s great. What was supposed to be a shopping trip for Josh ended up being a shopping trip for me. Damn, I love men’s clothes. This plaid, frayed shirt is SO comfortable and steers away from the typical plaid button-down. I love the pocket details and length (I hate short button downs). The shirt is more than half off so check it out before they sell out. I’m wearing a small in the picture . And hey, maybe your man will want one too. Links below! And don’t forget to check out my recent read below because it was SO GOOD.
What I’m reading
Okaaaay! I’ll let you where I got my shoes. Truth be told, I got them last winter and didn’t think JC would bring them back. Alas! they did. So here are my favorite shoes. So comfortable by the way. I love me some thick soled wedges, the chunkier the better, but if the soles are too narrow I wobble. Not the case with these. I can walk all day and my feet never get sore (I traipsed around London with them last Christmas). Anyway, hope your Christmas was peaceful. Spend those gift cards, yo!
What I’m reading (Again)
Welcome to my home! I like dinosaur bones, and alligator book-ends, and at Christmastime I like all the plaid. EVERYTHING PLAID! I also like a really comfortable pair of wedges. These are probably my favorite pair, and I wear them most often. The fringe adds a little something to a plain outfit, but I know fringe isn’t for everyone. Remember, if you have shorter legs wearing a wedge with skinny jeans will give the illusion of length. Also, this cable knit sweater is something I wear once a week. This time I tucked in the front for a different look and i really liked it. Felt like something new.
Personal story: this week Ryder decided he wants to be a playwright. He’s been writing plays, practicing plays, and in general tormenting us with plays. I have to say, this is the strangest phase he’s ever gone through. At night he’s actually been crying himself to sleep over some internal play drama. I’m all like “SHUT UP ABOUT YOUR ART, RYDER! You don’t see me crying do you?” (he does). Anyway, I always thought Scarlet would be the angsty artists, but…
The shoes everyone has been asking about. The shoes, the shoes, the shoes. I was looking for something different and fun for this spring and summer and happened upon these. Yes, they are exceptionally comfortable. Yes, I want you to buy them. As for the plaid dress I’m wearing- it’s currently 65% off! It’s under $35.00 and have I told you that Nordstrom is excellent about returns? If you don’t like it ship it on back. Hey! Hey! Happy shopping.
