Generally, I over-wear particular pieces in my closet until I’m sick of them, then forget about them, then discover them, then get all giddy over them again, then…I know. Vicious cycle. I keep waiting for this jersey dress to get old, but it just doesn’t. Jersey knit stripes are just the thing a girl needs to get her comfy on without completely abandoning all fashion sense!
Not liking the harem-pant-look I’m getting from these pants.. If I hike it up any higher, Baby will protest and angrily kick all day so I had to low-ride them. Already, Baby = 1, Elaine = 0…..
I’ve been really into layering t-shirts since most of my shirts are too short. I liked seeing the looseness of the t-shirt under the shorter “fitted” shirt…though I don’t have any more “fitted” shirts…so…there’s that..
First of all, a Happy Mother’s Day to all the mamas out there!!! Have you called your mom yet? :)Mustard is quite possibly my favorite color right now. Something about it – and I’m not sure what it is – goes with neutrals so, so well. I love how this cardigan looked on top of my black and white polka dotted top. I’m always very conscious of what colors I choose to pair with black and white.
And another thing – I kept this in my closet back home while I was adventuring in Japan. When I came back, it was like I had discovered a new treasure! Lesson learned: Time away really does make the heart grow fonder, even with clothes. Who knew?
Was inspired by another pin for this outfit. Loved the casual effortlessness of the chambray with the black pleats.
Also, I was experimenting with how to tie my scarf in the first pic. Not sure if I like it yet… Anyone know what that knot is called? Just saw it floating around Pinterest and thought I’d give it a go!
This is my current date night outfit. Lately, I’m loving classy, formal-looking tops dressed down with a pair of fitted jeans. It’s a great combo for a date that you don’t know how to dress for (which still happens with me and my husband). The collar is meant to be folded down, but I prefer it up.
Cute flats are a great idea to keep the outfit fun and feminine while still being able to take those long romantic walks or awkward strolls to and from restaurants……. Speaking of flats, loafers are amazing! Patterned loafers are even better. Thanks, mommy! With all one color, a pattern can really pop anywhere you have it.
I’ve been avoiding cardigans lately… Maybe I cardiganed myself out? But when I saw this color peeking out from the sea of monstrous grandma prints at the thrift store, I had to snatch it! Plus, how else could I have recreated this J.Crew fall look kinda sorta?? They had me at chartreuse, stripes, and leopard…which is essentially everything. Let’s consider this the younger sister version of the J.Crew look… Anyway, buttoning it up all the way with a scarf (tutorial here!) to hide the v-neck makes it look like a regular loose, comfy sweater. I like! Wonder what other cardigans I can do this with…
Also, how I wore this cardigan with jeans – one arm at a time.
And, hey! We’re still taking questions for our Q&A! Get to know the Clothed Much team and post your questions here!
I swapped this sweater from Meredith a while ago but L.A. doesn’t know what sweaters are so by the end of the day, it was drenched in sweat. (Probably from my awesome ping pong skills.) Srsly, so cute! For the color combo, I was inspired by this look from Zara. I figured I’ll never wear leopard print shorts (Never say never?) so I subbed it for my scarf instead.
And if your scarf is missing something, add a brooch! or a flower!
