I am going to keep this one short and sweet, because I traveled both last week and this week to Atlanta so time was a little tight to pull off a new fashion post. But since this week was full of action, we figured we’d show you what I wore during a week of traveling, interviews, and photo shoots. Let’s get into it.
I’ve given up looking cool while traveling, especially when I have to get up at 4:30 am, so sweats and sneakers it is. Those Lou and Gray sweats are still so soft and comfy but what I really love is that the elastic doesn’t cut in at my waist (why would anybody design sweatpants with a tight waist band???). I, of course, wore my favorite sneakers, though I did regret not having socks on going through security and felt a bit embarrassed (whoops). Also, I am pretty sure I’ve had that same carry on for six years and it’s a piece of garbage so I should probably think about getting a cute one. Suggestions??
Once I landed in Atlanta, I had to meet the client that afternoon and while I warned them I would be in my travel clothes, I decided I wanted to look a bit more pulled together. I quickly changed into my favorite Rag & Bone dre jeans and the smile shirt that you guys have seen a thousand times. The dre jeans are straight leg with a low waist (I wear a 27), are very comfortable and even though I’ve gained some weight (too much travel, not enough soup!), they still feel roomy but also flattering.
This day, I was on camera for 25 TV and radio interviews but only from the waist up so I wore my comfy jeans, with my Ulla top. You are going to see a lot of Ulla Johnson here. The reason is that I LOVE and wear the hell out of their clothes. They are very expensive, and I do pay for what I buy because I am a huge fan (although I should reach out…Hi Ulla!). For me, their pieces are perfect because they are special without being too loud, and are flattering without being tight. I just feel really good in them which is important for being on camera. I need to feel comfortable and confident.
This dress is also an Ulla number that I’ve now worn to 1 billion occasions. I wore it to the press party on Tuesday with all the other designers and our friends at Invitation Homes. Sadly, they no longer make this exact dress but the good news is I was randomly in a Banana Republic and saw this very similar one. You are welcome. 🙂
The next day we had the “Finding Your Person Design Style Workshop” (which was SO fun meeting some of you guys) and I debated between two outfits (because, options). I almost wore this chambray top paired with white Levi’s but instead opted for this outfit below:
Yes, that is another Ulla Johnson top (that exact top is not on their site anymore but they do have other styles in the same print). Also, you guys were all in my DMs asking about those white pumps on my feet, understandably so. They are Vagabond that I recently bought at American Rag and I am so glad I did. Normally, I stay away from white shoes because I feel like they make feet look so much bigger, but because these are pointed, they have the opposite effect.
Have a lovely Saturday! See ya tomorrow for The Link Up. xx
