Classic Style

I alluded to this recently, but one of the biggest micro-trends over the past season or two has been embroidered detailing–specifically, embroidery that looks hand-stitched on the breast pocket of a tee-shirt.  The look first caught fire thanks to uber hip line La Ligne and their “I’m with La Bande” tee ($115), which has been spotted on every celebrity under the sun, from Mindy Kaling (love you, girl) to Gigi Hadid to Alison Williams.

Madewell has just recently introduced denim embroidery as a service they offer — so rad!  I love (!!!) the idea of getting a denim jacket personalized with my name (should I do “Magpie” or “Jen”?!, $118)

The line Lingua Franca also has some beautiful cashmere sweaters with cheeky slogans embroidered across the front available ($360/pop).  More cool options here (anything quoting Biggie Smalls is alright by me…) and here — through an exclusive collab with Veronica Beard.

My personal favorite is this “Mademoiselle” tee from Atelier ($55):

You can always get the trend for less with these TopShop tees ($26 a piece — “Bad Habits” here and “Femme Liberte” here):

But my favorite little snag?  These Gap modal cotton pajamas with the sweet little embroidery inspired “Be Mine” on the pocket ($59, but currently 30% off!).  {They remind me of my favorite pair of short pajamas ever, by Eberjey.}

Or, you can splurge on these beyond adorable silky pajamas from line Love Stories ($135 for top, $65 for bottoms).  Love that embroidered “room service” on the breast pocket.

+Finally, for #minimagpies: OMG, check out this sweet sleep sack from Etsy store Swanky Stitches with the baby’s name embroidered on the front!  I am dying over it.  Especially because Mr. Magpie’s name is Landon.
