What I Loved Wearing This Week: Mar. 8, 2024.

It was the week of the little blue jacket! Alex Mill launched it as a part of its spring collection this week and I wore it three times. So versatile and fresh, and the perfect mid-weight layer for these 50-degree days. Leandra Medine has been talking about this color as a complement to the pops of red that have been everywhere (an example of which seen below in my red-and-white striped shirt) — in her words: “a response to (as in, good companion color to) the season’s surge of red.” Medine calls it “Bottega-ish” blue. Je l’adore. Wearing above/below with this Boden shirt, Alex Mill’s Carla jeans (run TTS, had to have them hemmed by about four or five inches, no joke — I’m 5’0 and these run long), and my favorite support bag, the Altuzarra Watermill, which I continue to yap about because it goes with everything in my closet.

Another take: the cardigan with a Kule striped tee, Loeffer Randall Leonies (divinely soft right out of the box), and Agolde Rileys. And of course the bag.

Date night in Charlottesville! Wearing a Cami NYC dress, L’Agence denim jacket, these under-$20 shades, a Paris64 crossbody, and these $60 Quince flats. As you can see, I was very excited for the occasion. You can also spot my Ossa phone case and wristlet in a few of these photos. Actually really handy when you’re in a tourist mode — you can keep the phone close at hand without having to physically hold it the entire time (just have it hanging off your wrist).

My car travel day look! I had mentioned I was planning to wear my Frank and Eileen sweatsuit, but I needed an outfit that could take me from morning Mass to wine tasting with a two hour car ride in the middle. I chose these Agolde pinch waist jeans, a plain J. Crew tee, the Quince mules, and this Veronica Beard vest (high sell-out risk!), which elevated everything. The Quince mules are like the convertible of shoes. You can wear them with dresses or jeans, and they feel perfectly midway between dressed up and down.

Earlier in the morning, I wore with a utility jacket with fun faux fur trim at the bottom half — sadly from a brand no longer in existence, Harvey Faircloth! I still wear the jacket each winter season.

The third time I wore “the jacket” this week — with a Leset pointelle tee, Agolde pinch waists, Quince flats, and Paris64 bag. (This was part of my travel ensemble. All the pieces so easy to mix and match!)

A shot of my packing for the trip! Everything played so nicely together.

Last but not least: my outfit for my daughter’s Taylor Swift-themed birthday party! I wore this tee (under $20) and these Sezane acid wash jeans. They were so fun and different! They run really small. Disregard the note on sizing down – I sized up one size and probably could have gone up two!

P.S. It’s their day, too.

P.P.S. Everyday jewelry.

P.P.P.S. What does your job say about you?

  1. I love your color palette in the top image! I adore Boden but am such a diehard neutral gal I sometimes find it hard to style IRL. Somehow I’ve landed on a very French white/blue/red striped palette for mine and the kids’ summer clothes, since my son wants us all to match right now.

    My husband did his summer shop and chose a lot of bright pastels and neon, including a few of these cocktail tees:
    We’ve both decided to get rid of some ratty old tees and add some fun ones, and I’ve been scouring Etsy! I’m planning to add some personalized tees with inside jokes to his Father’s Day gift. Loving that Taylor tee.

    Excited to hear about the party! She’s getting so big. Over here our local park has a function room to rent and that’s where 90% of birthdays are once it’s warm enough.

    1. Such fun finds for summer! I love the idea of getting rid of old tees in favor of some colorful new ones. Will share any I find, too!


  2. I love it when you give us notes as to where you wore the outfits! The little blue jacket seems like a winner 🙂

    How was the bd party? Can we have a rundown of mini’s favorite gifts? We are going to a 7yo bd party this weekend and I’m anticipating several more in the next few months. I’ll share some of my go-tos: books (always books!!) we got one little friend a Princess in Black box set. Along the lines of your personalized water bottle idea…there’s a decorate-your-own water bottle that’s made the bd rounds in our group (
    And my SIL says a gift card to Five Below (with a box of candy or stickers) is a hit in her area – the kids like to shop with their own money. Excited to hear what got mini’s seal of approval!

    1. Goodness! That decorate your own water bottle is precious, I saved that to one of my Amazon lists immediately (I keep Amazon lists for different things, like kitchen need’s, boy bday gifts, girl bday gifts, etc ), I would also love to hear Mini’s fav gifts too.
