On My Body This Week: Crazy Coats, My Favorite Jeans, A Petite-Friendly Jumper
The good news is that these posts are inspiring me to actually try harder to do better with the clothes on my body. This week is not evidence of the shift, but we have a photo shoot planned where my friend is helping me curate five “lewks” to show you. This is, however, just normal clothes on my body, due to that fact that I’m shooting four days a week these days and I have to be comfortable and wear clothes that I kinda don’t care about. Then on the weekends, I’m momming really hard so I need comfy cute clothes there, too. It’s probably why I wear a lot of boyfriend jeans, T-shirts, cute sweats and no-lace shoes (you have to take off your shoes a lot on set for stepping on rugs, but working without shoes all day hurts so I opt for mules or easy to put on books/slides).
Anyway, for any of you who like comfy, flattering and casual clothes, then take a peek at my unimpressive looks.
I actually tried this day. I love that new camel coat (although I’m now thinking it’s too big). Maybe I’ll have the sleeves taken up. The jeans are from a year or so ago but I linked up similar ones from Madewell (these are also Madewell). The high waist is slimming and flattering.
Tuesday night, we all went to happy hour as a team for Velinda’s bday at Salazar and I put on my new coat. I had a big credit at a store that I returned stuff to YEARS ago and they still had it in their system, so naturally, I splurged on a ridiculous pink coat, of unnatural proportions (which I love). Still wearing those jeans every day and yes, it’s time for some new nude mules…any suggestions?
I’m prone to costumes and when I’m at the mountain house, I get rugged. I’m obsessed with that new little jacket, and those pants are so comfortable that I bought TWO pairs—one that fits more like a boyfriend and these that are more fitted. I highly recommend them (and they were on sale when I bought them for $60).
Lastly, I’m diving deeper into the jumper trend with this one that I bought at Gift of Garb after I sold a bunch of clothes. I’ve never heard of this brand but the cut is pretty flattering for this style, plus it has cute pockets. Not recommended for the long-torsoed out there as reaching high to get something out of a cabinet is pretty uncomfortable if you know what I mean, and I have a pretty short torso.
When I sent the team this photo, I first said “wait…what exactly am I showing people here?” Sorry. Friday was a travel day after a few days of shooting up at the mountain house, so I wore my new very comfy sweatpants that have pockets and a really cute waistband. I was in desperate need of layering shirts, you know, those really thin, comfy easy to throw on shirts that you put underneath other shirts (your welcome for the definition of layer). This one is Lou & Grey and is insanely soft. As is my new chunky sweatshirt blazer thing (also Lou & Grey).
That’s it, guys. Have a lovely Saturday and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the link up. xx Emily
