Goodbye Sweet JanSTEWary and Hello To What’s On My Body This Week
Well, we all kinda felt that it was time to move on from JanSTEWary mostly because the only word we could come up with for the next month was FebSTEWary and it would cheapen what was a run of pretty super puns (see how I DIDN’T go there?). What we get DM’d the most is ‘where is that shirt from, where are your pants from?’ etc, so on Saturdays for a while, we’ll show what I put on my body. These are not perfectly curated outfits that are meant for hundreds of thousands to see, but they are what I chose because likely they are comfortable, flattering and feel like me.
I do wish that I would take more risks, but well, I clearly didn’t this week. So here it goes …
It’s rather unfortunate that we are starting out this series with that “outfit”. Way to really hit you with my fashion force. But my team was like ‘no you have to include it’ and I obliged. On Monday we traveled back from the mountain house in this showstopper. I can’t wash the sweats fast enough (I should probably own two pairs) because I wear them most mornings, to bed, and a lot of the weekend, only opting for a different pair if they are in the laundry. Why? Because they don’t cut in at the waist or crotch, and are extremely soft and not unflattering (that lump on the side was just how I was standing that created a ripple in them) Most of Lou and Gray’s clothes are super soft, by the way. The Great sweatshirt was sent to me and at first I was like, ‘am I doing the daisy trend?’ But I wear it a lot, so I guess I am. And my friend Suzanne gave me her hand me down UGGs which I put on every morning, night and weekends much to Brian’s dismay.
I got my act together on Tuesday and threw on a blazer to assert my professional ‘bossness’. That blazer is my favorite (slim arms, but oversized in legnth) and the pants are from Target and strangely slimming. I wear a lot of Nisolo shoes as you can tell, and these are my current favorites because they are comfortable and I love how the pointy toe is more flattering, making your leg look longer. I bought that Free People shirt in 3 colors and for the record Brian Henderson really likes it (it’s a ripped up, kinda see-through low-V-neck so nobody is shocked here).
Speaking of …same shirt, different color. This time with my new favorite ‘shoot’ overalls. These overalls are perfect for being on set because they are roomy and have lots of pockets, but are still cool (and very comfortable). I wore them with my other favorite Nisolo shoes but I think that some sneakers would have probably looked better. A fun fact about me is that I don’t believe in laces. In case you are an investigative reporter and you remember my new The Great shoes from last week I will confess you are right, I have ONE pair of shoes that have laces, but the joke is that I make my best friend/neighbor (who works at The Great) tie them for me often. I just don’t have time or patience for laces. If I went to therapy (WHY DO I NOT GO TO THERAPY??) This would be a pretty easy thing to dissect. Or maybe I just want to dress like a a pre-schooler, in play clothes.
Well, sadly almost none of them are available, but that is a VERY typical “Emily” outfit. Chambray/navy/drop crotch/camel mules/and a bit of “funk” what with the fanny pack. P.S. That was and is my only Clare V. and I do in fact love it. I feel like it really makes a boring outfit look more high end.
That shirt is from Urban Outfitters last year and those pants are my new weekend stretchy ‘I’m not jeggings but I feel like jeggings’ set. I’m looking TIRED but good. Again with the Chelsea Boot – promoting my almost flawless lace free record for the week.
Oh and I topped it off with this vintage Japanese canvas coat from the flea market that is reversible. Which side do you like more? #teamplaid
Now to show you that I can actually care, here’s proof:
Brian’s play that he was in last year, Cry It Out, was nominated (AND WON!!) for the Ovation Awards which is kinda the Tony’s for LA. It was at the Ace Hotel and ‘Black Tie’, so we obviously wore navy (accidentally matched) and Brian looked VERY handsome. That dress is from Ulla Johnson last year and I wear it on every special occasion (I really need a new one). It was a splurge so I’m VERY glad that I’ve gotten so much use out of it.
So that’s it. Every day I put clothes on my body and maybe by doing this series I’ll even try to put on more current clothes that are available, even better and more interesting. Or maybe not…. 🙂
