Was ironing two silk blouses the other day. Ironing silk is very possible but a little unnerving since it’s such a delicate fabric. Even on the silk setting I take it slow.
I ordered one of Everlane’s new band collar silk blouses in sun-kissed blue. It’s still cool enough out to wear long sleeved silk.
Actually it’s still so cold I pulled out a favorite cardigan of mine. I like long cardigans in winter and short ones in spring.summer. So I packed up my long grey cardigan and pulled out my ultra-fitted short grey cardigan.
Last weekend I picked up some new items for summer. There was a sale on Madewell’s sandals. I haven’t had a proper pair of sandals in a few years now. These seem like they might be 100% blister-free comfortable to wear. Here’s hoping. It’s still too cold to try them out.
Also finally got another skirt for summer (which I was needing.) It’s black. Of course it’s black! I own 5 black skirts now. I just love black for bottoms, I dunno. *owns it* Anyway it’s Madewell’sBistro Skirt . I actually have their Bistro dress and love the material. This skirt is mostly like the dress’s bottom half. Except there’s no pockets? WTF I almost didn’t buy it because it lacked pockets! But it’s a nice size, length, texture, and it has a tiny bit of stretch to it so I looked past the pocketlessness.
I didn’t make a conscious choice of pulling out so much blue for spring; my closet just evolved into this. These shirts have been in heavy rotation for weeks.
The two t-shirts are from Everlane. I already mentioned loving the Box Cut tee. I had it white, then I got black, and recently I ordered the navy too because I was wearing the other two so much. I also got another Ryan Tee from Everlane in the navy (I have it in grey already.) The Ryan tee is the first low cut top I’ve worn in a long, long time. I don’t like how I look in v-necks and they make me feel self-conscious. However the Ryan Tee is a softer deep cut. And I feel confident wearing it sans-camisole with just a nude bra. I haven’t had any issues with the tee shifting and showing bra straps (hallelujah.) These will be a savior once the heat of summer comes. For now I pair them with cardigans and blazers.
