I pulled the trigger on a pair of trendy Adidas Sambas in the perfect sage green. Only after the fact did I realize I’d subconsciously selected a perfect color match for my beloved FRP Collection Bag. I anticipate wearing these two pieces together a lot. I can’t believe how quickly these shoes are selling / have sold (by time of publishing?), but definitely worth keeping an eye out for restocks. I was *this close* to buying this court green pair, but the softer green came out and I jumped. I literally tore open the box (mine arrived THE NEXT DAY? from Adidas?) and paired with my new Mackenzie x Navy Bleu dress I shared earlier this week (see more styling ideas here), which I wore three times this week. It is one of those dresses that is SO easy to throw on no matter what the day entails. What is it about my late 30s that makes a loose fit, button-front dress so irresistible? I can’t help myself! I live in my fleet of Julia Amory dresses and now this will join the ranks. I put zero effort into styling this outfit but will share more focused looks with the new Sambas (which I know many of you also purchased) next week!
Let me also make a little commotion here for Mackenzie. She is a true blue. I have met so many influencers and bloggers and creatives and writers in my admittedly narrow experience authoring Magpie and she is one of the most magnetic and authentic people I’ve ever met in my life. I treasure her and consider her a dear friend. I am here to baldly cheerlead this woman!
Anyhow, onward with my usual “what I wore this week” rundown —
*A little note on this hat — one of my absolute favorite new discoveries. I hadn’t realized until this hat how nice it is to have a flat brim hat you can wear with sunglasses / see out of without tilting your head back. Sounds so absurd but truly a God-send at the pool! I love the little floral embroidered pattern, but there are lots of other band options available. I also cannot begin to tell you the number of compliments it fetches. Mr. Magpie commented on it the first time I trotted it out — “I love that hat!” — and then they just started rolling in. I’ve been stopped three times at the pool by women asking for its source!
**A note that the Outnet carries a lot of great Antik Batik pieces at deep discounts. They produce the most interesting, whimsical patterns! I LOVE this dress.
P.S. This is a bit of an abbreviated post because I shared some of my other favorite wears this week here! I am obsessed with that ecru skirt!
P.P.S. I’m headed to see “Barbie” tonight and am SO excited. I relished Anne Helen Petersen’s whip-smart analysis of how “Barbie” (big female main character energy) rivals/talks to/answers “Oppenheimer” (where, as she describes all Christopher Nolan films, there is “a total disinterest in the interior life of women”). Super interesting to contemplate these films in conversation with one another.
P.P.P.S. How to stop time: kiss.
