All the Ways I Wore Stripes This Week

I’m keeping this one short and sweet today because it was A WEEK and time was super limited for writing (you may have noticed I didn’t do much in terms of blog posts this week). Exciting, full of super fun projects, styling and SO MUCH SNOW that made my heart happy but phew…it’s done and now I’m snuggling with my babies in the mountains.

You’ll be happy to hear that I went shopping recently (I mostly hit up Zara and Lou & Grey—which I love so, so much for its cozy loungewear you can dress up), so there are some new favorites in the mix (including new pajamas that the team forced me to show you, so sorry in advance).

Okay, so Monday was a holiday (the office was closed), so I don’t have an outfit to show you. Whoops.


Tuesday Side By Side

Striped Top | Jeans (similar) | Coat | Hat (similar) | Boots

Let’s start with the top. It’s new from Lou & Grey and basically a pajama top that can be styled for work. I love the dropped sleeve on it. The jeans are old Madewell but the high waist (and the fact that they’re super tight) make me feel great. The coat is also new from Zara and perfect for these cooler LA winter days, and same for the hat which I’m so bummed isn’t on Zara’s site. Maybe you can find it in store? I gotta tell you, I felt pretty cool in these. The soles are treaded and rubber (I think), so they’re great for walking around the city.


Wednesday Side By Side

Striped Turtleneck | Pants | Moto Jacket | Boots

We were headed up to the mountain house on Wednesday, so the two-hour car ride meant I wanted to be comfy. These Lucky Brand utility pants were super comfortable (they come in three colors), and the turtle neck—another score from Lou & Grey—was a home run. Oh, and that moto jacket is from Target and so good for the price.

Pajama Set | Striped Turtleneck | Beanie | Boots

It was a snowy wonderland up there this week, so I gave a test run to my new sweats from Lou & Grey (I promise this post is not sponsored by Lou & Grey…I just really love their stuff). That’s the same turtleneck I had on earlier, and the fuzzy boots and beanie are from Target.

Pajama Set | Boots

This is all you’re getting from Thursday, unfortunately, but at least I love these new pajamas to show you! They’re a light jersey and you can’t see it in this photo really, but there is a contrast piping that looks really cute in person (subtle, but cute).


Friday Side By Side

Top | Jeans | Boots | Apron (similar)

HA the apron and rolling pin. Okay, so that top (from Zara), but because it’s a little see-through and has eyelets, I didn’t have the right bra to wear it properly and show you, so…I threw on an apron because why not? These jeans from Rag & Bone have a really nice stretch to them. I think this particular cut is their “best-selling skinny” or whatever, and I can see why. They’ll be a new go-to when I don’t feel like suffocating in my a-little-too-tight high waist Madewell jeans from Tuesday. Oh, and of course my new favorite Chelsea boots from Nisolo. I seriously wear these all the time (as I do all their shoes).

Friday Afternoon

Sweater | Jeans | Boots

To help with #bragate, I switched into a new sweater from (you guessed it) Lou & Grey. I love a good colorblock and dropped sleeve (and cozy sweater in general), so this one is a winner!

Hope you had a great week, and see you tomorrow for our link up post + a big site announcement!! xx

Nice! Every outfit is classic, including the pjs.

My most stylish Brazilian cousin has an almost identical fedora, and her younger sister bought that apron last year. Thanks for reminding me I want to copy them.

Those Rag&Bone jeans are so cute! Do you recommend ordering your normal size or should you size up to achieve that slightly looser fit that you are rocking?

Ooh, I love that pretty Zara top! Cute looks! I love the style posts, but I’d love to see some more soup recipes too, as I do more cooking on the weekend. Great content this year— your blog has been such a treat recently!

my eyes, my eyes! i really hope these outfit posts stop, stat! there’s a reason why there’s like 3 comments here before mine, vs the lots more for posts that are related to home styling. it just screams ‘buy this because i’ll get a commission when you do!’ and NOT (yes, all caps) ‘wow you’re outfit’s really pretty, where did you get that and i wanna have one for myself too!’ .. honestly.

Lots of people have REQUESTED this information. Emily didn’t just randomly decide to do a fashion show every week! The number of comments on the fashion posts doesn’t reflect interest…you can be interested in something without commenting. If you aren’t interested in fashion posts, why don’t you just scroll past them?

Personally, these are my very favorite posts. I’ve got a very small home and have already emhendo styled it best I can (other than tweets here and there). Styling myself is something I do more regularly. Ha! So these posts give me tons of inspiration. Furthermore, without exception, I always love what comes when I order what’s recommended on the clothing posts.

Wow this is so dramatic. She does these on the weekends to not take away from “regularly scheduled” interior design content. I love the outfit posts and I’m glad they are just a quick additional weekend update. If you don’t like them, just come back on Monday for the design posts…

Pretty Emily,
I appreciate these more attainable price points.

As a fellow blond, I’ve been following your brass petal advice of modest amounts of black in my wardrobe.
I’m excited to do some.

I love this post series! Also great to see Lou and Gray pieces on here as I’ve been curious about the brand. Thanks!

Love these posts!

I’ve gotten completely sidetracked by what looks like no baseboards in the mountain house pics and only a toe kick. Am I mistaken?? Is this even an option?? Do people do this?? Because if it is and people do, my mind is exploding with ideas!

I’ve never commented before, but I wanted to say I soak up the fashion posts and really appreciate them! I’ve struggled to find inspiration for clothes I can actually wear and actually afford; I’m a writer and mother of three living in Brooklyn, and I want to look cute yet age-appropriate—not an easy task, at least not for me. It’s super useful to me to see Emily’s style, which I love, and to learn about where she shops. Affiliate links don’t bother me a bit; we’re all trying to make a living, right? Thank you for this series, Emily!
